Rockin Naturals You May Not Know But Should: Jada
Name: Jada Jarvis
Location: New York
What you do for a living?
As of now, I’m in high school focusing on performing.
How long have you been natural?
My mom and Alyssa Redenti totally inspired me. I’ve grown up with my mom and she’s always had long long hair and I never really payed attention to it. And then I saw Alyssa Redenti and I didn’t know it was possible to get curly hair so long! And the only way for me to even try and attempt to get my desired length, is to leave it natural and stop messing with it!
What are your current hair goals?
I want my hair length to be a little past my belly button.
Is there a product you have used that you would NEVER use again? Why?
An organic coconut remedy I bought from a cheap store. NEVER AGAIN. I used it and I had to go out, and it was a little cold out. And walked out and the product legitimately FROZE my hair in place and it was in braids, it got so hard I started panicking. I eventually rinsed it out with warm water and fixed it, but that was one of the worst feelings ever.
Do you have a favorite go to hairstyle?
I just keep my hair in braids as a go to hairstyle.
How do you protect you hair at night?
Haha, I don’t have an official name for it but when I’m doing something with it I always say “come on buddy grow, you need to grow buddy.”
Heatless, moisturize, condition!
Any advice to the natural newbies?
“I just wanna sleep in your hair. It’s like your own personal pillow!” Always makes me laugh.
If you could tell your younger self NOW something about your natural hair THEN what would that be?
“STOP STRAIGHTENING YOUR HAIR EVERYDAY!!!”
I used to do it so much and God it was so damaging. But now, I haven’t applied heat to my hair in a little over two years.
Do you have a favorite YouTube Vlogger?
I do! If we’re talking specifically about hair/guru/beauty wise though, I definitely would have to say Jadah Doll!
Finish this sentence:
I Rock My Natural because I finally learned to appreciate it. I believe that it’s because I didn’t know how to properly take care of it, but now that I’m getting a hang of it, I’m starting to like my hair a little more.
Keep Rockin Jada!!
