This is a PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT! lol…
Let’s just say I think it’s pretty awesome to be considered as a great natural hair resource-ista lol. The founder of CurlKit, Heather Cummings reached out to me via email to share word about the E-Guide her team was putting together. I was chosen to share a few words of hair encouragement and tips to share within the guide. I was pumped!
I personally never use the title “Natural Hair Guru” for myself because I think it’s a bit much to claim. I figured I’d have to be like Black Onyx or something selling my own products and running my YouTube channel like a Michelle Phan production special to be a guru.
It took me a minute to get use to natural hair. When I big-chopped back in 2011, I had NO CLUE what I was going to do with mt TWA. I believe this is what initially got me into school for Cosmetology. I learned more about the science of hair. Unfortunately, they don’t have a section dedicated to dealing with natural hair but I was able to take from what I learned and apply it to the growth of my hair. The first step was learning that the best products for me came from knowing about my hair density and porosity.
But hey…. it’s nice to know people see me as such a great person to gain ideas, hair inspiration, and tips from. I also need to get my behind back to:
- Making YouTube Videos
- Going To More Natural Hair Events
- Showing More Newsletter Love
You can find me on the second row from the bottom right next to one of my fave hair girls, Lexi! Inside the CurlKit E-Guide you can find awesome tips and resourceful words to help you stay inspired along your natural hair journey.
What s one natural hair care tip or resource you d like to share from your journey?
That is so cool! You also gave great tips. During my natural hair journey, I have found that patience and imagination have been the most helpful tools to care for my hair. I also watched many youtube videos and read many blogs while I was transitioning and would get frustrated at the beginning when my curls did not look like "her" curls. With patience and imagination (plus time and a lot of bobby pins) I gradually developed a set of signature styles that work for me.
Awesome girl!!! So glad you found your natural hair mojo!!
Thanks so much!!
BIG Congrats. That's a great compliment. You're doing something right.
BTW, have you done any posts on hair care for locs, especially Sisterlocks?
Oh snap!! Look at you! That's awesome. I told myself that after I took my sew-in out that I was going to invest some time and attention into learning more about my density and porosity! I think this would help me out a lot!
Thankssss and no. I can't share exoeetuse on locs since I don't think I'm qualified to do so 🙂
Lol thanks girl! Yes! Knowing those two things will save you A TON if time when finding your perfect products.
