Natural Rockers You May Not Know But Should: Shontae
Hey! My name is Shontae Bacchus and I’m 18 years old. I live in St.Vincent and the Grenadines, W.I. I’m currently doing my second year A Levels in Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics at the St.Vincent Community College. I’ve been natural for my entire life 🙂
What or Who inspired you to go natural? Did you bc or transition?
Although I’ve been natural my entire life I used to flat iron my hair a lot especially when I entered high school. I started managing the heat I put in when I entered college and began altering my hair routines and products based on my natural curl pattern.
Top three products and prices.
My top three products are Catwalk Curls Rock Curl Amplifier, Shea Moisture Coconut Hibiscus Curl and Shine Milk and Cantu Daily Oil Moisturizer. The Catwalk Curls Rock Curl Amplifier is my absolute fave! It sells for US $13.95. The Shea Moisture Milk sells for US $9.99 and the Cantu Daily Oil Moisturizer I buy locally for EC $20.00.
Fave go to hairstyle.
Definitely a wash n go and I usually diffuse my hair on the cool setting after I wash my hair.
If you had to give your hair a name what would it be?
If I could give my hair a name it would be something free spirited and simple, a name like River perhaps lol
If you hair is colored what do you use to do so?
I’ve never colored my hair but I would love to soon. Something not too loud to start with, maybe a dark brown or just some simple highlights.
Sum up your natural hair journey in three words.
Learning. Changing. Loving.
Any advice to the natural newbies?
Definitely to stay patient with your journey! Embrace the way your hairs grows and don’t be afraid to try out different products to see what works best for you. Finally, love your hair exactly as it is! 🙂
What was favorite compliment someone has ever given you on your hair?
I love being told that my hair makes me look exotic and unique. It also makes me smile when people say it’s “perfection” lol
If you could only watch one natural hair vlogger on youtube who would it be? why?
Sunkissalba, I adore her tutorials and the fact that she pays close attention to the products she uses. Plus she has such a beautiful soul.
Finish this sentence:
I Rock My Natural because it empowers me to embrace who I am.
