Where are you from? 
I am from Memphis,TN by way of Mound Bayou, MS.

What’s something we wouldn't know by looking at you?
You wouldn't know that I sing just by looking.



How long have you been natural? 
I have been natural going on 8 years.


Did you do the Big Chop or did you transition to natural hair and When? 
I transitioned back to my natural hair state back in 2005.

Did you have a support system? 
Initially I didn't have a support system, yet I didn't have anyone down talking me about my choice.

What is more important to you - Hair Length or Hair Health? 
The health of my hair is more important than the length.

What are some of your favorite natural hair products? 
Cantu leave in daily moisturizer has been there since the beginning. I also like Miss Jessie's, Jane Carter Solutions, Eden Body Works, and Camille Rose Naturals among others.



What is your natural hair regimen? 
I usually wash my hair twice a week, I condition my hair over night, LOC, and my go to style is a sleek puff or two sleek flat strand twists.

What advice would you give to someone who is considering to go natural or a newly natural sista? 
Stick with it and embrace it. Address the issues that you have. Your hair too dry....add moisturizers, scalp dry......add oils, only fix what is broken or wrong.

Words of Encouragement

Hey Loves!

God: What do u mean?
Me: Well, I woke up late,
God: Yes
Me: My car took forever to start,
God: Okay
Me: at lunch they made my sandwich wrong & I had to wait,

Me: And to top it all off, when I got home ~I just wanted to soak my feet in my new foot massage & relax. BUT it wouldn't work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did you do that?

I always get asked about how do I interlock my locs and the rotation I used - whether its 2-point or 4-point rotation. Some people also use the term 2-way or 4-way rotation.

In the video below, I illustrate on my own locs, the difference between the two methods. you can then compare for yourself, if there is a difference between the two by looking at my locs.



Do you interlock your locs? Share below which rotation do you use?
