I first met this lovely angel on the street of New York on my way from the Let Your Hair Down Expo and had to stop and take a pic of her Fro. It was a creature by itself flowing in the wind as she rush to get to the expo before it ended. Isnt she and her Fro just gorgeous? To find out a little bit more about her please read below and check out her Youtube channel (IconicAfricanaand Instagram as well.

Introduce yourself.
Hello! My name is Temitope Olatunbosun (most know me by Felicia).  I am 22 years old and a recent graduate.  

What made you decide to go natural?
I decided to return my hair to its natural state because I truly missed the uniqueness of my natural hair. I saw my younger sister watching YouTube videos of ladies and their natural hair and I was completely inspired.  

Gorgeous Girl and Massive Fro!

Did you Big Chop or did you Transition and When?
I began my transition from May 2011 to June 2012.  I cut the relaxed ends as I began to see new and very thick growth.  

Do you have hair goals?
I actually do not have hair goals necessarily but my overall goal is to keep my hair as healthy as possible.  I just want to enjoy every moment of this natural hair journey.  

That Fro' Tho......

Do you have hair length goals or hair health is more important to you?
I have always had very thick and long hair (4c) that is prone to breakage.  Healthy hair is at the top of the list. I stick with a regiment that helps to maintain the overall health of my hair. 

What are your favorite hair products?
I always make sure I use a few products at a time. My favorite products are Garnier Fructis Shampoo and Conditioner, Cantu Shea moisture leave-in and olive/carrot oil.   

What is your regimen?
My regimen consists of washing my hair once a month. Water is my hair’s best friend! Moisture is extremely important.  I also use simple styling with braids, twists and Bantu knot outs.

Now...thats a BUN!

What advice would you give to someone who is considering going natural or a newly natural?
My advice for anyone that is on the natural hair journey or going natural is that patience is key.  It is not an easy process but you will learn to enjoy and love every part of it.  No matter, what you are beautiful!

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?

Lupita Nyong'o Attacked by Dencia (Maker of Whitenicious Bleaching Cream)

Lupita Nyong’o, the gracious black beauty was an honoree at the Essence Women Luncheon a few days ago. In her speech, revealed her struggles being a black girl to womanhood and how images of the supermodel Alek Wek made her see beauty in herself as they both shared the same 'midnight' complexion. She then pulled out a letter a fan wrote to her thanking her for appearing on the scene just in time before she ordered Decia's Whitencious bleaching cream.  “Dear Lupita,” it reads, “I think you’re really lucky to be this Black but yet this successful in Hollywood overnight. I was just about to buy Dencia’s Whitenicious cream to lighten my skin when you appeared on the world map and saved me.” Who or what is Decia's Whitencious Cream you might ask? Dencia is the Cameroonian-Nigerian singer 'was' of dark complexion but been using bleaching cream to lighten her skin to a 'very pale' complexion. Now I urge you to look up FOOL in the dictionary and her pale
