How would you describe your hair?

I would describe my hair as an attention seeker. No matter what style we choose for the day, (yes, “we”, because my hair has a mind of her own) I will get some stares and questions. My texture is closer to coarse waves than actual curls and I have ringlets in the very back and side edges. My texture is also finer in those sections.

What do you love most about your hair?

I absolutely love my hair for the versatility. I can go bone straight or wild and crazy. It responds to the elements and steers my attention toward things I never considered important. For example, I know to pay careful attention to the weather and dew point because experience has taught me that a bad hair day is sure to follow if I don’t do my homework!

What has been the most memorable part of your journey?

The most memorable moment of my journey is the learning curve. It's been almost 8 years and I’ve finally got a firm grip on the ropes. I am so lucky to have a huge family with lots of women whom I have encouraged to stop relaxing. The women in my family are 100% natural, and I’m so proud that I’ve helped them see that healthy hair is beautiful hair. It doesn’t have to be a certain texture or certain color. I’ve given countless pieces of advice and spent so much time with all of my gorgeous ladies. We all have different textures. It’s amazing that no matter if we are sisters or cousins, not one texture is the same. We’re also all in different stages of our journey, ranging from many years natural to recently transitioning to locs and Sisterlocks. They keep the journey fun! Plus, we’re our own natural hair community, supporting and rooting each other on. Going natural is an incredible experience, but there’s nothing like going natural with the people you love.
