I am an aspiring television personality coming from Albuquerque, New Mexico but now out here in Atlanta, Georgia.
Currently I'm a patient representative at a hospital. My name is Sherelle Fox but I prefer to go by Shereal Fox. I would like to classify my hair type in the 4c category because it is very coarse and I don't have an actual curly pattern, but it is still amazingly flawless. I think the thing I love the most about being natural is the fact that I feel free, yes it was a big decision to make but I don't regret it one bit!
As a child, I was stripped of my choice of relaxing my hair, being so young it was commonly done so it is like being reintroduced to my real texture and it has been a pleasure!
I know that everyone has a different opinion of what "being natural" is but I feel as if perception is everything and defining that for yourself will help. I have been natural for about a year now, after a fews months of trying to save my permed ends, they had to go; I ended up doing an official "big chop" sometime at the end of last year.
I do length checks every time I take my hair out of a protective style, which varies between weeks and months (depending on how long I wear that style). I did my first official length check and trim on Halloween where I got it done in a salon, it was washed, blow dried and silk pressed; I was very happy with my results!
My go-to style
I love to rock the twist outs from flat twists with bantu knot ends (flantus) and also flex-rod sets. I love to use the Love Lotta Body with Coconut and Shea Oils Wrap Me Foaming Mousse, it is "Ahh-Mazing" the first time I used it, I fell in love; easy to say, it was love at first use. After using it, it didn't make my hair hard or feel funny; it was really soft and smelled oh so good! I think that we all should use a protective style every once in awhile to give our manes a rest; I just love the idea of the styles.
As far as protective styles go, I have done, marley twists, kanekelon twists, twists with my natural hair, crochet braids with Jamaican braid twist hair, lace-front wig over corn rows, and french braids.
I feel that the best way to preserve your hair at night is to make sure you wrap it in some form of silk wrap or bandana, if you're a crazy sleeper like me you definitely something that will stay on your head throughout your "sleeping journey".
