Natural Rockers You May Not Know But Should: Maureen


My name is Maureen Tardy-Powel. I live in the city center of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I work as a stylist, model and  I bake cakes. I have been natural since the longest. I cant even remember. If I wanted my hair straight I would flatiron it. I always hated relaxers or sitting at the salon.



What or Who inspired you to go natural? Did you bc or transition?

Nobody inspired me. I always had a thing for afro’s and big hair. I guess I had a big chop not knowing it was a big chop I just wanted my hair really short one day. So I shaved it more than once.



Top three products and prices.

Gosh. I don’t know. I use whatever whenever. I really suck at that. I like castor oil,shea butter and argan oil. Prices I really dont know or care. Argan oil I do get in Morocco cause its cheaper there.
