 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 :-)
