What was it like for you growing up with textured hair?

I never could figure out my hair! It was always a struggle! It was never straight or curly. Just always fluffy! I’m so happy I finally figured out my hair just a few years ago! What a game changer!

What made you decide to embrace your naturally curly hair?

Once I figured out what my hair wanted it was easy to just embrace the curls and the silver for that matter! I love it!

What has been the most empowering moment of your natural hair journey so far?

Just seeing my hair become so healthy and happy! It’s amazing!

How do you protect your curls at night?

I usually sleep in a buff it’s long enough to hold all my curls and stay on my head all night!

What's your curly girl essential you can't live without?

So many things, but if I have to pick one.... I’d say my buff, sleep protection is everything! Without that I would have to wash more often!

What is your current hair regimen? Any favorite products you’d like to share?

I wash about once a week! I love testing out new products! My hair seems to handle a lot and stay happy! It’s so fun, but two of my must have products are Hairdance dry shampoo and Righteous Roots hair oil!! I can not live without these two!! Use them weekly!

What has been the most challenging moment of your natural hair journey so far?

I would say just figuring out everything that my hair wants at the beginning! It was a small challenge but it was well worth it now! I love my natural curls and silver streaks!

Are there any techniques or methods that have made a huge impact on your hair health?

Yes! Brush styling for me changed everything! I’m so happy I figured it out! Now my curls last so much longer! Also scalp scrubs made a big difference for me!

What's your advice to women who are still struggling with loving their natural texture?

Keep trying! Follow people that inspire you! It’s a little difficult at first but once you get it all figured out it’s so worth it!
