Natural Rockers You May Not Know But Should: Roxanne
My name is Roxanne and don’t you know…I just cold rock a party and I do this show! I am in my mid 40’s. After my birthday in November I will have to say I am closer to my 50’s. According to the Generation X Report I’m a Gen Xers, people born between 1961 and 1981, who are highly educated(yes that’s me), active(not really), balanced (yes always striving), happy (yes except for Mondays) and family oriented (yes this is what I live for). Well 4 out of 5 isn’t so bad! Yet, my greatest testimony has been being blessed to be a mama of three awesome children that keep on giving me life!
What or Who inspired you to go natural? Did you bc or transition?
I have been on my natural hair journey for years. Deep down I knew “hair crack” wasn’t good for me but I was addicted! Every decade I would do a “big chop” as an intervention. My natural journey would be going great and then “hair crack” would come back into my life telling me that it would treat my hair better this time. I would fall for the “lyes” everytime. Around the year 2000 I finally gave up “hair crack” thanks to my children, who at the time were 11, 5 & 3 years old! It was important for me that they grew up seeing their mama embracing and loving her natural beauty with confidence. I have gracefully learned that I am imperfectly perfect and that “hair crack” is “wack”!
Top three products and prices.
My number one “go to” is Water and my water bill reveals the struggle between my hair and the grass. The next runner ups are:
Aussie Moist Conditioner (32oz) $6 Never lasts long enough!
Apple Cider (16oz) $4 This lasts forever!
Pure Glycerine(6oz) $6 This lasts forever!
Fave go to hairstyle.
Wash and go and let it grow like the Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia Pet!
If you had to give your hair a name what would it be?
Liberty because it expresses itself free from restrictions and controls.
Have you ever tried hair shadowing? Deep Conditioning Color? Splat washables?
As for hair shadowing, I must admit I have lurked in the shadows observing curly hair divas in amazement!
As for deep conditioning color, I have never tried that. It sounds a little risqué! Can this be done in public or does it require private sessions? I like to be transparent…no secrets!
As for splat washables, are we talking about the Batman & Robin fighting scenes, “Splat! Pow! Bam!” I am totally against violence! All joking aside I was spraying & washing before splatting & washing came around! Either way they both are daring ways to make a statement, “KaPow!”
If you hair is colored what do you use to do so?
I am currently using Turning Grey by Mother Nature which is totally driven by my genes. I have highlights throughout my entire head. I am thinking maybe my grey hair would respond well to a private “deep conditioning color” session that I could showcase in the public!
Sum up your natural hair journey in three words.
Self Loving Power
Any advice to the natural newbies?
Your natural hair journey is specifically designed for you and you should not compare it to others! It is a process that requires patience as you abandon the world’s definition of beauty and embrace your God given inner & outer beauty!
What was favorite compliment someone has ever given you on your hair?
When someone says, “Is that all your hair?” As they find some unique way to check for tracks in my scalp. “Oww! Excuse me but what are you doing?” As I cautiously back away from them smiling but wondering if it would be inappropriate for me to “Splat-Pow-Bam” them! Which I would never do because I believe in “Peace, Love & Hair Grease”!
If you could only watch one natural hair vlogger on youtube who would it be? why?
I couldn’t just pick one, it would be like “cutting off your nose to spite your face”! Collectively they represent the whole body of the natural hair movement with their unique perspectives and experiences.

I Rock My Natural because I am Free at Last, thank God Almighty, I am Free at Last!
