How long have you been natural?
* I've been natural for about a year now. I actually messed up my curls by flat ironing one day to check the length and ended up doing the big chop again about 2 months ago.
What made you go natural? (If you've been natural your whole life, what made you stay that way?)
* I decided to go natural because chemical relaxers were damaging my hair. I constantly had really bad breakage and split ends.
What's your favorite natural hairstyle?
* My favorite style is a big curly fro held by a headband. It's quick and easy and can be worn for any occasion.
What's the most annoying/hardest thing about your hair?
* The hardest part for me is coming up with different styles. I'm not very creative when it comes to hair and I usually end up wearing the same style all the time.
What's the most annoying comment you've gotten about your hair?
* Surprisingly I haven't gotten any annoying comments. Most people say they like my hair better natural.
Why do you think some women are afraid to "go natural?"
* I think they're afraid because it can take a lot of work and advanced planning. In today's society everyone is so busy and on the go they might feel they don't have a lot of time to spend on their hair.
Do you buy your hair products or make your own? What are some of your favorites?
* I buy all of my products. My currents favorites are from the Shea Moisture line.
Have you ever thought about "giving in" and perming your hair?
* No not at all. Like I said before, I've learned that the chemicals damage my hair and I don't want to go through that again. If I want to wear a straight style I will just wear a wig.
Is natural hair a trend or lifestyle?
* It's a lifestyle. Women have been natural for many years but because of all of the marketing for it now it seems like a trend.
If you could tell the world one thing about natural hair, what would it be?
* That going natural is an individual journey and process. You will learn a lot about yourself and your hair. What works for others may not work for you and you have to find the best products and styles that work for your hair.
