I’ve been following Fedorah on Instagram for good while now simply because of her beautiful curls and cool laid back style not to mention she reminds me of my earliest curl crush Kelis 🙂 If your not following her by now where you been? lol
MY NAME IS FEDORAH AND I CURRENTLY RESIDE IN NEW YORK CITY, WHERE I ALSO MAKE A LIVING WORKING FOR THE CITY. I HAVE BEEN NATURAL ALL MY LIFE BUT I STARTED EMBRACING AND TAKING CARE OF MY CURLS 4 YEARS AGO.
What or Who inspired you to go natural? Did you bc or transition?
GOING NATURAL WAS IN A WAY AN ACCIDENT; I WAS ON A WEIGHTLOSS JOURNEY AND IN THE PROCESS WENT NATURAL BECAUSE MY WORKOUT ROUTINE WOULD SWEAT OUT DOMINICAN WASH & SETS. I WENT NATURAL IN AN EFFORT TO SAVE MONEY AND TIME BECAUSE MY PRIORITY WAS WEIGHTLOSS ; I WAS DOING EVERYTHING I NEEDED TO MEET THAT GOAL WHICH INCLUDED GOING NATURAL. IT WAS MORE OF A SAVE TIME AND MONEY SITUATION, I HAD NO IDEA GOING NATURAL WAS SLOWLY BECOMING A MOVEMENT. I DID BOTH THE BIG CHOP AND TRANSITION. I CONSIDER IT A BIG CHOP LOL – I CUT MY WAIST LENGTH HAIR TO MY CHIN AND FROM THERE IT WAS A GRADUAL TRANSITION.
What are your current hair goals?
ONE HAIR GOAL OF MINE IS LENGTH, I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A LONG AFRO AND STILL BE ABLE TO MAINTAIN HEALTHY CURLS WITHOUT HAVING TO CUT TOO MUCH.

Do you have a name for your hair or If you had to give your hair a name what would it be?
I NAMED MY AFRO MEGATRON BECAUSE NO MATTER WHAT ROUTINE, MY HAIR WILL COME OUT DIFFERENT EVERY TIME.
If your hair is colored what do you use to do so?
I LEAVE THE COLORING TO THE PROFESSIONALS.
Sum up your natural hair journey in three words.
BLOOD , SWEAT , AND TEARS.
Any advice to the natural newbies?
MY BEST ADVICE WOULD BE TO BE PATIENT WITH YOUR HAIR AND DO NOT LET THE CURLS OR MANES DISCOURAGE YOU FROM LOVING YOUR AFRO.
What is your favorite compliment you have ever been given on your hair?
MY FAVORITE COMPLIMENT WAS BEING MISTAKEN FOR KELIS AT THE DOCTORS OFFICE LOL I AM A HUGE FAN AND WENT ALONG WITH IT UNTIL IT WAS TIME TO HAND IN MY INSURANCE.
If you could tell your younger self NOW something about your natural hair THEN what would that be?
I WASTED SO MUCH TIME AND MONEY GOING TO SALONS EVERY WEEKEND TRYING TO MAKE MY HAIR A TEXTURE THAT IT’S NOT, I WOULD TELL MYSELF TO SAVE MY MONEY AND LET MY HAIR BE FREE.
Finish this sentence:
I Rock My Natural because GOING NATURAL SET ME FREE.
Keep Rockin Fedorah!!!
