My Selfie Journey: Vinnika Johnson

Vinnika Johnson grew tired of hearing negative comments about how she should wear her hair. Two months ago she decided to cut it all of and, in turn, she feels extremely free.

My hair is…Relaxed

I started my hair journey… in April 2011, which marked the beginning of going natural along with wearing a full-weave sew in for the first time to minimize heat damage and allow my hair to grow.

My current hair regimen includes… visiting my hair stylist in Houston every two weeks, deep conditioning once a month, and using coconut oil.

My favorite hair products include… Organix Shampoo & Conditioner, Nairobi Sheer Shine and Creme of Nature Perfect Edges.

The secret to having healthy hair is...maintenance and understanding your hair. No matter how you wear your hair – dreadlocks, weave, natural, etc., there are ways to keep your hair healthy!

My biggest hair challenge is… learning how to manage short hair on my own. I’m not as skilled as my hair stylist or ladies who’ve been wearing short hair for years.

I love my hair because…it’s versatile and I have full creative rights to wear my hair as it suits me! I’ve been natural, worn weaves and now I’m rocking a short hairstyle that I love (it's even shorter now).

My hair crush is... Jennifer Hudson! Her haircut is fierce and she wears it confidently!
