Seriously Natural Spotlight: Romance

Seriously Natural Spotlight: Romance

Tell me a little about yourself and your hair journey.
My Name is Romance Cox, also known as Hey Curlie. I’ve been natural going on 3 yrs. I big chopped November 2011.

How long have you been natural? Have you always embraced your curls?
I’ve been natural going on 3 yrs. I big chopped November 2011.  I learned to embrace my hair and I wouldn’t change a thing.

What motivated you to transition? Were you a transitioner or a Big Chopper& why?
I didn’t plan on doing the big chop. I was transitioning and had a sew-in.  Upon taking it out and washing my hair, my hair matted (scary, right). So I had to big chop, after a few months, I learned to embrace my hair and I wouldn’t change a thing.

How would you describe your hair?
My hair has its only personality. It will be manageable one day and unruly the next.

What do you love most about your hair?
I love being versatile. I love trying new styles from rod sets to twist-outs. It’s all about having fun.

What has been the most memorable part of your journey? Has it been easy or difficult or both?!
My most memorable would have to be my big chop. My journey has just been fun: trying new products and meeting new naturals and helping them along the way.

What are (or were) some of your favorite transitioning hairstyles or current dos’?
I love a two strand twist-out and I’ve mastered the perm rod set.

What have your experiences been as a ‘natural?’ Any memorable reactions from family or others?
It’s been mix for me, others have embraced it and some still are hesitant about me being natural. All are supportive and still love me the same.

What is your hair regimen (including fav products)?
I love to co-wash my hair using As I Am Cowash followed by Aussie Moist conditioner. I style with a range of products depending on my style so I can’t pick one styling product.


What are some of your favorite natural hair websites, Youtubers, or blogs? Do I really have to pick?
I have a ton of websites, Youtubers, and blogs I admire. I can’t pick. Get a lot of helpful information from a lot of places. Each site or YouTuber brings something different.
