Where do you live?
T: My name is Tiffany. I currently reside in the beautiful sunshine state, Tampa! I work in the customer service department of a process server company.
Why did you make the decision to go natural?
T: I attempted about three years ago and failed because I gave into all the negativity around me; ALL the ‘You don’t have a good grade of hair’ and the ‘Your hair will be nappy and unruly’.
When and how did you transition into natural hair?
T: I transitioned for about 11 months. My goal was actually a year but I couldn’t take the two different textures! Sooo I decided to just do the big chop and start living… lol. I will be 1 year natural on February 23. After the big chop I felt so liberated and free. I love my natural hair and I’m not ever going back to a perm! NEVER!!!
What lessons have you learned in the process of going natural?
T: Going natural has taught me a lot about my hair and what’s good for it and what I should not use. I would say one of my biggest mistakes was putting products that contain mineral oil and petroleum jelly in my hair.
What do you use in your hair?
T: I am a product junkie and I’m new to the natural thing so I’m just trying to find things that work for me. I actually want to add color so if you have any safe suggestions on color products.
I co-wash every 3 to 4 days with Suave Tropical Coconut Conditioner (this is a fav), Kinky Curly Knot today, Aussie 3 minute miracle, Desert Essence Green Apple & Ginger Conditioner or Giovanni VITAPRO Leave in Treatment.
What’s your favorite style?
T: I would definitely have to say that my signature hairstyle is one side braided and the rest of my hair is in a twist-out sooo love it !
How does your hair express who you are?
T: It is wild and unruly and very different! JUST LIKE ME!!!
