Where are you from?
Northern Virginia

How long have you been Natural?
7 years in November

Tell us your hair story. Why did you decide to go Natural?
It's funny because when I was 16 years old I told myself I was going to go natural when I got "old" which old to me then was 26...lol! Well, when I just turned 25 year old I decided I didn't want to relax my hair anymore. So my last relaxer was Aug. 10 2002. I began transitioning at the end of August. I had no real reason (like hair breaking although it was breaking) I just knew it was time and I was ready. I transitioned for three months doing cornrows, roller set, and braidouts. After three months and finding NP I couldn't take the two-different textures anymore so Nov. 21, 2002 I did my first big chop. After that I never looked back and since I've did the big chop three times. I've had locs and chopped then chopped again Feb. 2007.

What do you like most about being Natural?
I like the fact that it really is versatile; if I wanted it straight I could straighten it (although I haven't) or I could wear it "curly". I like that my natural hair is not the norm and it's me. It's what I came into this world with.

What technique has helped you the most?
Oh man! I think that protective styling as well as no combing is what has helped me. The best thing is I'm still learning my hair even after seven years! It's got a lot of character and personality.

Okay, tell us about your website.
I don't really have a website it's more of a photo sharing site. It's where I can post pictures of my journey so I can look back and see how far I've come and the fact that other women can look at my pictures and feel inspired is just a plus. It's http://www.fotki.com/kinkycoils

Your advice to the readers:
Love who God intended you to be. Love yourself first.

^^I agree! The twist-out is gorgeous, my hair puffs up because of humidity.
