 Where are you from?
I am from Greensboro, NC.

What’s something we wouldn't know by looking at you?
I love Jesus Christ with all of my heart and soul. I am also an undercover nerd, that loves science. I am currently a technologist of microbiology, and I'm pursuing my master's degree in Theological Studies. Aside from natural hair I absolutely love fashion, people, and animals. I'm probably one of the most positive and funniest people you'd ever meet, because I believe you can find the good in any situation.

How long have you been natural?
I've been natural for almost 4 years. My last relaxed was in August of 2010.

Did you do the Big Chop or did you transition to natural hair and When?
I chose to go through the transition phase, mainly because I didn't have the courage to do the big chop. I wanted to keep my length as long as possible and this was an easier process for myself. I transitioned for a year and a few months (August 2010-October 2011), by getting blow outs and getting my hair trimmed every 4 weeks. After getting blow outs for awhile and my relaxer being completely trimmed out, I decided to stop with blow outs so that I could train my natural curl pattern. I now get blow outs twice a year.

Look at that healthy head of natural hair?

Did you have a support system?
My support system was small at first because not everyone understood nor agreed with the natural hair process. My sister who went natural before myself was my influence and biggest supporter during my journey. After seeing the results and versatility she has with her hair, I was then convinced to try it out. I have no regrets!

What is more important to you - Hair Length or Hair Health? 
Hair health is definitely more important to me than length. If your hair is healthy first, then your length is sure to follow.

What are some of your favorite natural hair products? 
I try to shy away from being a natural hair junkie, yet it is hard when there is so much out there to try. I currently use Shea Moisture curl enhancing smoothie, Beautiful Textures product line, Silk Elements edge control, As I Am co-wash, and of course Eco Styling Gel. These are the products that I have found to work best on my hair thus far.

What is your natural hair regimen? 
I don't have a specific hair regimen as it can vary week to week. I typically moisturize it daily with Shea Moisture, I shampoo and deep condition it weekly, I try to wear a lot of protective styles to protect my ends, and I pay close attention to it.

What advice would you give to someone who is considering to go natural or a newly natural sista? The best advice I can give to someone considering or just now beginning this journey is to really educate yourself prior to going natural. It's important to know what you will be dealing with because it is a high maintenance process. Really learn and love your hear and it will love you back. The results and benefits will show with time time you spend it making it healthy first.

Contact others who have been natural for some time and retrieve advice from them and their experiences. YouTube is also a great resource for tips, many styles, and tutorials. Also, a major thing to remember is to drink plenty of water as hydration is essential to hair growth and retaining moisture.

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

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
