Rockin Naturals: Deidra
My name is Deidra , I’m 27, born in Huntington Long Island, NY. Moved to Houston, TX with my parents and siblings when I was 4. Really I’ve been natural my entire life. Although when I was about, 7 or 8 my mom ran a perm through my hair which made my hair extremely straight. We (me and my sisters) were my moms experiments. But no i didn’t regularly get perms growing up. Maybe 5 in my entire life. To this day I am natural since 2009.
What or Who inspired you to go natural? Did you bc or transition?
Seeing pictures of my hair when it was healthy. I have a habit of coloring my hair excessively. I recently did like my 8th big chop April 29, 2015

How do you protect you hair at night?
You see, this is my biggest dilemma. I try scarves but I can’t seem to wake up with them on. Once upon a time I had a satin bonnet but my husband threw it away, he hated how unattractive it was for bed. I don’t blame him lol but I do miss my bonnet. More than likely ill be investing in a satin pillow case. I still put scarfs on at night.
