 What Is Your Name: Tshenelle Bethel

Where are you from?
I am from and still reside in Trinidad and Tobago

What’s something we wouldn't know by looking at you? 
That I model. I've been a plus size model for over three years now.

Ripping the Runway!

How long have you been natural?
I've been natural almost my life with the exception of two stints, one where I had a dry curl perm back in secondary school which last a year, and then a relaxer a few years ago which lasted 16 months.

Did you do the Big Chop or did you transition to natural hair and When? 
I transitioned then big chopped. My last relaxer was August 19th 2011. I transitioned for 5 months then did my big chop on February 19th 2012.


Did you have a support system? 
Of course!! My family, boyfriend, friends and our entire local and Caribbean natural hair community.


What is more important to you - Hair Length or Hair Health? 
Hair Health!! what's the point of having long hair if you can manipulate the way you like because it's not healthy?

What are some of your favorite natural hair products? 
Hmmm..too many to name lol. FCA Naturals Wonder Essence Hair and Body Oil, H2BN Naturals Uyai Kreemi Kustard, Body Savvy Hair and Scalp Oil and Eco Truffles Shampoo Truffles. I can go on and on but that should suffice lol.

What is your natural hair regimen? 
I don't have a specified regimen, but for the most part I'm subscribed to the LOC method.


What advice would you give to someone who is considering to go natural or a newly natural sista? 
Enjoy each stage of the journey. It may be a challenge at times but once you learn what works for your hair and you learn to love and embrace what's growing out of your crown then you will be on the right track :-)

DIY Moisturizing Leave-in Spray for Natural Hair

DIY Moisturizing Leave-in Spray for Natural HairGoing down the natural hair aisle at the beauty supply store can sometimes give us a real headache when we see the prices. Does natural hair products need to be this expensive? Does it have to be this hard to find a good moisturizing leave-in spray without breaking my pocket? The answer is no. You can make your own DIY moisturizing leave-in spray for your natural hair with ingredients that you probably already have in your house. 

Words of Encouragement

Hey Loves!

A few days ago I was very down on myself and needed some encouragement. My boyfriend sent me the following words to uplift my spirits and it did.  I feel like it will help some one too so please read below.

Me: God can I ask you a question?

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,
God:Huummmm...
Me: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call.....
God: All right
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?

God: Let me see, the Death Angel was at your bed this morning & I had to send one of the other angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that.
Me (humbled): OH
GOD: I didn't let you…

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

Hi Loves,

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?
