Danielle // Natural Hair Style Icon

Avatar • Nov 11, 2010

Where do you live?
D:
I live in Houston, TX! And I’m an undergraduate student until December 🙂

Why did you go natural?
D:
Simple. After years of wearing other people’s hair, I wanted to wear my own. I began transitioning about 2.5 years ago. I basically wore weave until my hair grew out. I definitely feel more comfortable with myself, and I’m also able to inspire others to embark upon the journey as well.

What’s your regimen?
D:
Oh boy! It depends on how I want to wear it. I typically wear twists/twist outs throughout the week and I use a combination of oils (i.e. coconut, jojoba, and castor oil), and a cocoa mango butter concoction. If I don’t have that, I turn to Miss Jessie’s Baby Buttercreme, or Carol’s Daughter Healthy Hair Buttercream.

How would you describe your hair?
D:
Kinky, thick strands, dense and very porous

What mistakes have you made with your hair that you’ve learned from?
D:
I have been fortunate to learn from the mistakes of my natural friends/mentors, but I did make the mistake of ignoring knots. I know better now!

What’s the best/most effective thing you do for your hair?
D:
Deep conditioning treatments

Anything else you want to add?
D:
The natural journey is long and difficult, but hang in there! You will love your hair and it will love you right back! It’s corny, but it’s so true.

I used to really love the features on BGLH, showing ladies with different hair types from all over the world. What stood out most was the number of pics.…which I felt made the site stand head and shoulders above the others. These days the features are there but there’s only 1 or 2 shots rather than many to admire. Look at Danielle’s beautiful head of hair! That deserves more than just 2 photos!

You’re hair is so gorgeous Danielle. I’ve been natural for a little over 2 years and my hair is not even close. I am going to have to try new things to get it to grow. Thanks for the pictures!

LOVE your hair! Great inspiration to continue on my natural journey. Last relaxer was in April of 2010 so I’m a little over six months in. Can’t wait to see how much growth I have this time next year. Might need to start a photo journal

Can we have more about your modeling info? I know we’ve all seen this girls photos (beautiful as they are) all over the internet so can we get a little on the modeling background and natural hair in it, etc.

@anon… There isn’t much to my modeling background. It started as a hobby, but recently (as in the last few months) I’ve decided to take it more seriously. After I graduate in December, I plan to market myself more aggressively. Many of my friends (along with myself) have seen my photos circulating around the web, so I guess it’s good Ive been seen. I would like to concentrate my craft in the natural hair realm, so Godwilling that will cone to fruition. If you have any suggestions for me, pass them my way!

This is funny, I’m a grad student/visual artist. My artwork focuses on women with natural hair. One day someone (another grad student) slid a picture of Danielle under the door of my studio, they thought that she would fit right in with my work. When I saw the image I was like “wow this is a beautiful women, and I love her hair!”
