NC: What is the best thing about being curly?
MC: I love the versatility. I love being able to experiment with products and find out what my hair loves. And I love just letting my curls go wild and free!
NC: How do you think having curly hair has impacted your life?
MC: I truly believe that it has impacted my life in a positive way! I'm into fashion, makeup and all things beauty — much more now than I was before. I personally feel that, for the first time in my life, I truly love myself. I accept myself for who I am!
NC: What would you tell others to encourage them to embrace their curls?
MC: Surround yourself with positive and supportive people, whether it's family or friends. And if it seems that you've run into a dead end and are thinking, "I can't," take a breather and reassure yourself that you can! Ask for help. Ask a family member or friend, consult with a natural hair beautician, search websites...and most importantly, don't quit!
NC: Tell us about your current and upcoming projects!
MC: When I'm not taking care of my amazing children, spending time with my family, tending to the home front, working, blogging or vlogging, I'm working on getting back into my acting career! I used to model, act, sing and dance. I put it all on the back burner so that I could focus on my family. Now that they are getting older and are in school, I feel like I've gotten my second wind!
