Natural Rockers You May Not Know But Should: Elizabeth
Tell me a little about yourself.
I’m Known as Pink or the girl with the pink hair. That is what I am often referred to as but my name is actually Elizabeth Weekes. I am currently residing in Tampa, Fl but I’m originally from the Bronx, NY with a stint in London, UK. I’m a Makeup Artist and Hairstylist who loves to enhance and pamper everyone that crossed my path. I haven been Natural for all of 5 months and I just got to the point where I stopped trying to watching hair grow in the mirror.
What or Who inspired you to go natural? Did you bc or transition?
I have been rocking pink hair for a long time but my hair has never really grown past a certain length. Once I started cosmetology school I understand the damage I was doing to my hair my constantly relaxing it and bleaching my hair. It was then I had to make the choice to either have pink hair or relaxed hair so pink won. Haven’t regretted it a day since and that was 5 months ago. There are some days when I’m bummed out by a new style I tried didn’t work out or shrinkage gets the best of me but then I remind myself why I started this journey to begin with.
Top three products and prices.
I am a huge fan of the As I am product line. I use their Coconut CoWash($9) , Leave in Conditioner ($8) with the Curling Jelly($12). I like to mix in a little bit of Eco styler and the curls unleashed curl booster to get those define curls and soft but long lasting hold.
Fave go to hairstyle.
Finger coils! Can’t go wrong with them.
Have you tried hair shadowing?
If yes, what do you think?
If no, would you?
I have never tried hair shadowing before because I chose to dye my hair pink with pravana vivids but maybe once I get tried of keeping up with it I’ll give the hair shadowing a try.
Sum up your natural hair journey in three words.
Lots of work and rewarding.
Any advice to the natural newbies?
Trying to figure out what works for your hair takes times, so have patience. Try lots of products and different curl patterns to see what you love.
