My hair is…. Natural

I started my hair journey… Three to four years ago. I got tired of planning my hair appointments around my gym sessions. I then decided to eliminate the heat. It was the BEST decision ever!

The secret to having healthy hair is...Protecting my ends and “listening” to my hair. [Giving what it needs will] reduce tangling, dryness and breakage.

My biggest hair challenge is… Being too rough on my natural hair. I always do my hair when I’m rushing to go somewhere, which causes me to rip though my tangles, instead of being gentle and massaging them out/finger detangling. 

I love my hair because… It is a reflection of my personality: versatile and wild!

My hair crushes areNeffyFroFro and MsVaughntv on Instagram. I love not just their hair, but their style and ambition.
