Are you natural or permed and why?
I'm team natural because my mum would never let me relax my hair. It damaged her hair so she wanted to protect mine and at the time I was like NO! But now I'm grateful. I love my curls, God made them like this
How long have you been natural ?
I've been natural all my life and I plan to keep it that way
What's your favourite protective style ?
My fave protective style is a full head of chunky twists I love them. I always do my own hair I have since I was around 13, people used to laugh but the more I practised the better I got. I keep my hair in twists or cornrow styles during the week and then on weekends I twist out, braid out and let my hair be free until wash day again. I clarify my hair with bentonite clay and water once a month and I use my own mix of coconut oil, Shea butter, castor oil and olive oil to hydrate my curls.
What are staple hair products?
I can't go without my Shea butter mix. I also love Aubreys products - I have strayed away from them for a while trying all sorts but I'm going back there because those products make my hair so detangled and soft. I also love gel, eco styler is probably my fave and every girl needs a water spray bottle!
Worst/Funniest hair experience?
The funniest experience I had was trying to do an oatmeal hair mask. I had nothing to properly grind the oats with so I just decided to put them in the blender I think. It went horribly wrong because my family just started laughing when they saw me, I had oatmeal chunks stuck all over my hair and it was like huge mutant dandruff flakes my sister had to pull each one out for me while I sat in shame.
What are your hair aspirations?
Naptural87 is my fave hair person to follow I also love @naturalandchic, @naturalneiicey, @thenaturalchica and @sumetrareed on Instagram!
