1. How long have you been Natural?
I transitioned 13 months and did my big chop late Oct. 2011.
2. Why did you become Natural?
I became natural cause I was tired of my limp thin relaxed hair. I hated the smell of it after I got the relaxer. I wanted my hair to be healthier. I figured since I color my hair I need to give up the relaxer.
My transition was pretty easy. I got the roots flat twisted and rodded the ends. I also loved straw sets.
4. Did your age aid in your decision to go Natural?
My age had nothing to do with my choice to grow my natural hair.
5. Do you see many Older Naturals in your area? If so, what styles are they sporting?
I see many many naturals now. I’m noticing them in TV commercials. I see them out on the streets in stores, parties, etc. I think its wonderful.
6. How do you primarily wear your Natural hair?
I wear my hair in a twist outs and wash and go’s.
7. Favorite products and/or product line?
I like suave naturals conditioner to cowash. I like Giovanni direct leave in and Shea moisture leave in. I like shea moisture curl enhancing smoothie and softee curl activator gel with aloe.
8. What do you love most about your Natural hair?
The one thing I really like about my natural hair is the fact that NOBODY has hair like mine. Its beautifully unique. I love it.
She's beautiful and I love that color on her. It goes so well with her skin tone. Her hair is gorgeous and that smile is infectious. I love she was willing to share her Natural hair journey with us. I love knowing what made women decide to take the Natural hair plunge. No one who has shared (and it's been over 30 women) are seeing this as a fad.

Take care Naturals,
