Featured Naturalista: Mykel Trent
Where are you from?
I am originally from Winnsboro, Louisiana. I am finishing my degree in Troy, Alabama!
What’s something we wouldn't know by looking at you?
That I am short. Most people look at my pictures and automatically assume I am at least 5'6 or taller. My modeling training has helped with that a lot.
How long have you been natural?
I am not entirely sure, but I will say two years? going on three years.
Did you do the Big Chop or did you transition to natural hair and When?
I transitioned for the longest and then chopped it. June of 2011.
Did you have a support system?
Not really. I just took it upon myself to make the decision. I told no one so there would not be any negativity that swayed my decision to go natural.
What is more important to you - Hair Length or Hair Health?
Honestly? Length. But without health, length may not come soooo. :)
What are some of your favorite natural hair products?
Extra Virgin Olive Oil, KeraCare, Design Essentials, Shea Moisture.
What is your natural hair regimen?
Do check out my YouTube channel! It varies. Depending on what style or texture I am achieving.
What advice would you give to someone who is considering to go natural or a newly natural sista? Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. Eating right is important as well.
