Natural Rockers You May Not Know But Should: Dhvani

Introduction
My name is Dhvani Tombush. I am a Nigerian-Indian who was born in Nigeria but I am currently in New York City at Barnard College, Columbia University. I study political science but I am truly in love with fashion, marketing, business strategizing and public relations. I am great with people and ideas so that’s what I want to deal with after college. I have been growing my hair for about 5 and a half years now. I transitioned for about 3 of those years so lots of trims and hair cuts!

What or Who inspired you to go natural? Did you bc or transition?
I decided to go natural because I LOVE my curls and apparently, my afro too! I went to a boarding school in Nigeria which made us have real short boy hair cuts and I realized i had some cute curls. Plus, I feel that permed hair does not allow me to do different stuff with my hair and i get bored easily. As mentioned before, I transitioned in my process!

Sum up your natural hair journey in three words.
Frustration. Patience. Acceptance. (in that order lol)
Any advice to the natural newbies?
I would say you have to be patient and rock it in a special way at every stage. New and short hair has a way to rock it, shoulder length also and so on. Each stage needs to be embraced. AND condition and moisturize A LOT. I learnt that very late!photo (25)
What was favorite compliment someone has ever given you on your hair?
Your hair fits you in so many different ways” (ugh yes!)
If you could only watch one natural hair vlogger on youtube who would it be? why?
I would watch Naptural85. I am in awe of her hair and how she takes care of it.
