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

The summer of 2013 I found myself going through a heart break. I wanted to change a few things in my life and my hair happened to one of those changes. I guess you can say it was my Angela Bassett in Waiting to Exhale moment. I transitioned for 7 months and 3 weeks exactly.

Fave go to hairstyle.

After my bc I wore protective hairstyles for 10 months. My favorite protective style is yarn locs, which I did myself. My favorite style to wear on my natural hair is wand curls.

If you had to give your hair a name what would it be?

Actually I did give my hair a name. It’s Flo, because she flows in the wind.
