Natural Rockers You May Not Know But SHOULD: Angela
Hi! My name is Angela. I’m a hospital social worker who resides in Southern California. I’ve been natural my entire life however, I’ve had perms and straightened my hair during my teen years and undergrad college years.
What or Who inspired you to go natural? Did you bc or transition?
No one really inspired me to go natural. I decided to start making these curls healthier because I was tired of seeing dead ends and my hair looking lifeless. My hair was wavy with some straight ends due to all the hair dyes. I didn’t BC but instead I trimmed 1-2 inches off every month or two until my curls curled like never before.
Top three products and prices.
My go-to has always been Aussie Moist conditioner, Tresemmè smooth & silky conditioner and Organix coconut milk conditioner. All under $6.
Another fav of mine is Beautiful Curls leave-in which cost about $14 on Amazon. And recently I’ve gotten back into Mixed Chicks leave-in which is pretty pricey. $50 for a 32oz however I bought one of these bottles off amazon for $32. Okay, that wasn’t three but I couldn’t do it lol.
If you had to give your hair a name what would it be?
Hmmmm… I don’t know what name I’d give my hair. I’ll leave that to y’all, what would y’all name it?
If your hair is colored what do you use to do so?
I just recently got highlights done professionally. This was the first time I’ve had some color in over 3 years. I don’t plan on getting anymore dyes anytime soon.
Sum up your natural hair journey in three words.
Patience. Rewarding. Fun.
Any advice to the natural newbies?
What I always share: The thing I’ve said to many women who started their natural hair journey is, be patient and learn your hair; what is likes and don’t like, AND pay attention to the responses your hair gives you… ANYTHING is possible with time, patience, and proper hair care.
What was favorite compliment someone has ever given you on your hair?
I love when people tell me, “I love that your hair looks different every day that I see you. It always looks beautiful”. I definitely like to change it up.
If you could only watch one natural hair vlogger on youtube who would it be? why?
Can I pick three? Lol. I can’t decide between Natural Neiicey, Summer Kellsey, & Chime. so I’m going to pick the three. I love their style. I love that they don’t seek perfection when styling their hair and their personalities. When I need ideas for my hair I watch their videos.
Finish this sentence:
I Rock My Natural because it’s fun. Its versatile. It’s what sets me apart from others. It’s definitely attention grabbing. And I LOVE MY HAIR!
