    Hi Kenya! You are stunning! I saw your bigchop photo and had to ask you a few questions…so here we go!           Why did you choose to go natural?   I went decided to go natural because I was going through too much with my processed hair. I do not know how to do my own hair myself very well but I knew there would be consequences if I didn’t take care of my hair while having a relaxer in it. I started getting relaxers as a freshmen in high school and by my junior year my hair started breaking off drastically due to tight ponytails I had to wear for cheerleading.   As an […]

                Hi Stephanie, why did you choose to go natural?   I chose to go natural for a few main reasons:   1.I had always envisaged myself getting married with natural hair and realised that I’d have to stop perming my hair to accomplish that goal. 2. I genuinely believe that God was telling me to do it and it was something that it was my final step towards accepting my true beauty, both internally and externally. 3. My hair had also pretty much stopped taking to relaxer, so I was literally perming my hair twice a year.                 How was the experience of having all your […]

                Pictures? I hear you say…yes pictures. They will allow you to monitor your growth. It’s hard to tell sometimes whether your hair has grown or how it’s changed, but through pictures you can look at your hair over the months, and gage whether all you’re doing is working, or if you may need to change a few things in your regime.   When I first did the big chop, I felt like it was taking agggggggggges for my hair to grow, but looking at pictures of month 1 in comparison to month 4 I could see growth.   Another important thing is to stay patient, and set realistic hair goals for yourself, hair […]

      Tips of the Day: *Take extra care of your hair, yes…even when it’s short. Your short hair will one day become the ends of your hair. If you damage them now (e.g. using excessive heat) you will find that you may have to constantly trim/cut your ends. In order for your hair to retain length, the ends need extra care – in this case your short hair needs all the TLC it can get.   *Condition regularly, I found that really helped during my TWA stage, it helped keep my hair moisturised & easier to work with.   *Combat dryness by creating your own hair spritz/refresher   *Enjoy this stage of your hair. Many people in their TWA […]
