Meet LaShon James-Major, a coily girl from Long Beach, CA.
LJM: I feel super confident now because I appreciate my hair for how it grows out of my head. I'm not hiding behind wigs, weaves, or a perm. NC: What would you tell others to encourage them to embrace their curls? LJM: Do it, but start slow. Do your research and be patient...don't expect to master everything about curly life in one day. NC: Tell us about your current and upcoming projects! LJM: I'm working on improving my blog, For the Love of Curls, which celebrates the right to be curly! I'm also working on a line of satin bonnets and scrunchies. MORE: The Real Satin Bonnet
