Brandii // Natural Hair Style Icon

• Aug 5, 2011

Where do you live?
B:
Bedstuy Brooklyn, NY. I am a Creative Artist (actress, singer, emcee, commercial print model & hair model.)

Why did you go natural?
B:
I made the decision to go natural because I came to the realization that my hair in its natural state was more beautiful than what I had been rocking. I transitioned 9 years ago. I started wearing my hair in braids. I did that for a couple of months until i decided to cut it all off! I rocked a short curly do for a month & then finally I loced it up.

In what ways (if any) has going natural affected you?
B:
So many ways
Higher Self Esteem: I have never felt better about myself & my hair. Ever.
Patience: The transition to growing natural hair can be very tedious… especially if you want long natural hair.
Opportunities: Having natural hair has opened up doors I’d never even thought about going through.

How would you describe your hair?
B:
My hair is very soft and thick. It frizzes easily. It’s light weight and naturally brown from the middle to the tips of my locs.

What’s your regimen?
B:
My regimen is very simple. I wash, condition & twist with any of these products.
Shampoo: Jane Carter’s Hydrating Invigorating Shampoo, Shea Butter Shampoo By Shea Moisture, Dr. Bronner’s Pure Castille Liquid Soap, Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Herbal Shampoo
Conditioner: Jane Carter’s Nutrient Replenishing Conditioner, Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Leave In Conditioner, Shea Moisture’s Shea Butter Leave In Conditioner
Twist: Soft Sheen-Carson’s Let’s Jam Extra Hold

What mistakes have you made with your hair that you’ve learned from?
B:
The one mistake I made was not starting my natural hair journey sooner.

What’s the best/most effective thing you do for your hair?
B:
Leave it alone. When I’m not doing photoshoots or shows… I just let it be. Lol

Is there a blog/webpage where we can find you?
B:
My personal webpage is www.iambrandii.com and check out the flyest lyrical females from Brooklyn in the hip-hop game @ www.blakorfan.com

Anything else you want to add?
B:
If you are in Brooklyn or visiting and need your hair done, you can find my stylist, SABINA (the best in BK, maintaing my locs for my entire journey) @

Sweet Mother of Jesus!

This girl is gorgeous!!!!!

Her hair, her skin in both color and texture, and her figure(that waist) are phenomenal. I ain’t bull-crapping. If I saw her walking down the street, I would probably turn my head and stare or point out how pretty she is to my boyfriend.

Yup been thinking about locking up too. As my hair gets longer, locs look more and more appealing.
