Are you permed or natural?
I have been natural for about 6 or 7 years but i only started growing my hair last year. I became natural because perming my hair was not good at all. My hair would break and i had a bold patch... that the truth no lie so i just decided to by a book called the Science of black hair and it thought me a lot. I am currently natural and I'm going to stay natural don't think ill ever perm my hair.
Why did you go natural?
I went natural because perming my hair was damaging my scalp. I had no education on black hair in general so i would use dark and lovely hair perm, olive oil hair perm, S curl perm a mixture of different perms and that broke my hair terribly. I used to just use a lot of pre i would perm my hair every 3 weeks and i would perm the whole thing not just the roots which was really bad. So i decided to go natural not based on just being natural it was just the fact that i was tired of having damaged hair and thought forget it I'm just going to cut it all of and cornrow my hair. I'm not saying that i don't like perm but i don't think i will ever go back to it because it doesn't work for me.
What protective style are you wearing?
I'm currently wearing crochet braids this is the first time i actually like it and decided to get this hair style because its cheap and affordable and it makes me look good doesn't make me look any different. I usually get crochet done by my self but this time i got help from my friend who cornrowed my hair.
What is your favourite protective hair style?
My favourite protective hair style is crochet braids I'm going to staccato that for this year but it might change.I used to do loads of braids before but i just found that it was really tight on my scalp and it pulled out my edges. I used to a lot of weave swell but i feel like I'm going to give that a break because all the patting and the itching its not for me.

Funniest hair experience ?
I've had a lot of embarrassing experiences...I dyed my hair red and it was permanent it wasn't supposed to be permanent it was supposed to be semi permanent so like i had like a red hedge thing going on for a while thank god it grew out.i also had bold patches and i also had chewing gum in hair once and i had to cut it so its not been the best experiences but i learnt from them.
What are your hair aspirations?
I want my hair to be first of all healthy and strong with that once i know its healthy and strong i can just focus on its growth. i also want it to be shiny an i want to be you know bra strap length a bit lower. But yeah i just want to have strong long healthy hair tone honest.
