Sydnye is a friend of Shari’s. I’m happy to have her on BGLH 🙂

Where are you from and what do you do?
S:
I’m from Houston, Texas. I have a PhD in Human Development and Family Sciences. I’m an early childhood mental health consultant.

When did you go natural?
S:
2002. I never liked having my hair chemically straightened. I stopped relaxing my hair a few years before that. When I got the courage to chop it off I never went back.

Shari tells me you’ve had locks before. Why did you make the transition to free-strands?
S:
I had locks for 3.5 years. I cut them when I felt maintenance started to take too much of my time because I did them myself.

I have worn all styles of braids since I was a child; cornrows to micros… My aunt braided my hair from 0–18 years. I used to change my hair style all the time. I am not fearful of cutting my hair.

What style do you love to rock?
S:
I wear my hair in styles that do not require frequent professional styling. I am active and I swear a lot. I don’t like styles that interfere with my lifestyle.

What do you use in your hair?
S:
This is an ongoing battle. When I find the right products, I will tell the world! When I had locks, I really liked the way the mango lime products held my locks.

Do you prefer natural to relaxed?
S:
Natural. My last chemical burn was the last straw.

Very nice :-), I commend you Syd and all my natural sistas. I didn’t always understand how much inner strength it takes for sistas to be (and become) natural and “go against this Eurocentric grain” in “our” conformist society. I always thought natural hair looks better on black women, it’s easier for me to see the beauty that god has given to y’all.
