When and why did you decide to get rid of the creamy crack if you did?
What was your support system like after you made your decision to go natural?
My mum from time to time would say things like, "I can help you relax your hair" or "Have you straightened your hair lately?' She always meant well but it did hurt me a little because I was thinking why, she knows where I stand on my decision so why is she asking me. In today's society I understand some of her concerns but I am making my own life choices. I used to be so worried about how I would be viewed in the corporate world, to my friends, family and peers. I have had a few nasty comments from strangers but I would say about 85% of the time people are kind, slightly confused but they are kind and have questions.
It is true that we are not our hair, or anyone else's, but do you have any natural hair crushes?
What are your inspirations in life and inspiration for your hair?
When you are going through your daily regimen what products do you reach for first and why?
My go to style in the winter is a top knot, the weather can be so harsh on our hair and skin, so a bun keeps my hair protected from rogue zippers and tugging from scarves. During the summer time I am a big fan of the ol wash and go, I wash my hair about 1-2 times a week so there is just a lot of maintaining that needs to get done during the week.
What is the most important thing you have learned on your natural hair journey?
I have learned the importance of self appreciation and self love. Whenever I find myself comparing my journey to others I take a step back and say, wait a minute girl your hair is on fleek too. Then I do the hair flip emoji and just like that the fro and I go back to living our lives.
I have always been an entrepreneur at heart, it started with seeing a book on my mums bookshelf when I was younger, she explained the definition of entrepreneur to me and I said I want to be that. I want to be self sufficient, I want to work hard to make my own dreams come true not someone else's. There are so many other bloggers and Youtubers out there who are far more successful than I, but I look at how far I've come already and that keeps me motivated. No one really intimidates me anymore, I'm a big fan of networking and collaborating, so when someone with a great idea reaches out to me and vice versa, I see opportunity.
snap chatters, I've found that by staying true to myself I will attract the right crowd at the right time.
