2. How long have you been natural? Why did you decide to begin your natural hair journey? And did you Big Chop or Transition?

I have been natural for 6 years now, I decided to do a big chop instead of transitioning because I wanted to see what my head shape would be like without any hair LOL.

Also, I was too impatient to transition.

Going natural was a very easy decision for me because prior to my big chop, I had been natural most of my life. I had experimented with relaxers and curly perms whilst in college. However, a few short years later I missed my curly fro and I just could not deal with the constant breakage and dry hair! That was the fuel I needed to start my healthy hair journey.

3. Who is your hair crush/hair inspiration?

I have a few hair crushes on Instagram @simplycyn, @Neffyfrofro & @xandervintage

I’ve recently been gushing over Yarashidi’s hair. I just love some of her latest hair styles.

4. What is your go-to hair style?

This is a very hard question as I am always chopping and changing. Currently, I don’t have a go to hair style. If I had to pick I would say just a wash and go or a high bun.

5. What is the one product that you cannot live without? Why?

Giovanni Leave in conditioner!

Not only is it a great moisturiser, it detangles my hair and also defines my curls. If that isn’t magic I don’t know what is.

6. What advice would you give to a Curlfriend who has just begun her natural hair journey?

Patience is really important! Just remember your hair is unique to you and comparison really is the thief of Joy.
