Hi my name is Cristina better known by my Instagram name Barbie Conga. I am a Jersey girl and I have been rocking my curls for almost 4 years.
What or Who inspired you to go natural? I can’t say someone in particular inspired me.
Did you bc or transition?
I started off transitioning and then became impatient and chopped my hair off a little above my ears.
What are your current hair goals?
Top 3 products and prices:
For a girl that is a product junkie picking only 3 products is rough (he he). But right now my top three products would have to be Cantu curl activator cream, Lotta Body shape me custard gel and Shea Moistures hold and shine moisture mist
Is theirir a product you have tried that you would never use again?
Yes the Kinky curly custard
This product did not work for me at all. I am not going to say it is a bad product because I have heard amazing reviews on it but my hair was not having it at all. And this happens sometimes not all products work for every hair type.
Do you have a favorite go to hairstyle?
How do you protect you hair at night?
I always sleep on a satin pillow case this always helps keep my curls frizz free for several days.
Do you have a name for your hair or If you had to give your hair a name what would it be? Queen because since I have learned how to embrace my curls I have also embraced that I am Queen.
Sum up your natural hair journey in three words.
Totally life changing
Any advice to the natural newbies?
Embrace your own curls! It is good to look at other naturals for inspiration but do not let it bring you down when you realize maybe your hair type is not like that of your hair crush. We all have different curl patterns and once you accept that you will be able to learn and love your hair.
What is your favorite compliment you have ever been given on your hair?
Is that a wig you have on? I find it funny and I take it as a compliment.
If you could tell your younger self NOW something about your natural hair THEN what would that be?
Do you have a favorite YouTube Vlogger?
My favorite youtuber would be SunkissAlba I think she and I have similar hair textures.
What inspired you to start your channel?
