NaturallyCurly: How long have you been natural?
Jaleesa: I have been natural since 2009.
When did you start embracing your curls?
Jaleesa: I decided that I no longer wanted to relax my hair and I was interested in what my hair would look like in its natural state.
What's your daily hair routine?
Jaleesa: When my hair is curly, I love twist outs because they prevent my kinky curly hair from tangling and knotting. When my hair is straight, I add a bit of oil on my ends or do a high bun.
What's your nighttime hair routine?
Jaleesa: At night, I do a pineapple on my curly hair or wrap my straight hair. Either way, I add some moisture and oil to seal it in.
