Markquisha // 4A/B Natural Hair Style Icon

Avatar • Oct 7, 2012

*Prepared for BGLH by Meosha Tall of 1MeNaturally

Introduce yourself!
M:
Hello beautiful world 🙂 My name is Markquisha. I’m from Fort Wayne Indiana and I currently reside in Detroit, Michigan or the “D” for short. What up doe..:)

Why did you make the decision to go natural?
M:
I started to notice thinning edges and see through hair!! The long thick hair I had was disappearing right before my eyes so I got on my laptop and typed in “How to get my hair healthy again” in the google bar and what popped up took me by surprise 🙂 I saw so many beautiful Natural haired women and I was convinced instantly!!! I never knew I had a choice smh!! Like many of us we grew up getting a relaxer and that was that!! So I did a big chop on June 10th 2010 and it’s been two years and four months.

How would you describe your texture?
M:
I would say my hair is around 4a-4bish with thin to medium strands. My hair is very picky unlike its owner about products. She doesn’t like everything…lol She loves just being left alone for the most part, but my HIH disease makes it hard for that to happen…lol

Describe your styling regimen over the course of the month.
M:
I currently do the Curly Girl Method. My current regimen I go by is to clarify once a month with the As I Am Curl Clarity Shampoo then once a week I co-wash with the As I Am Coconut Co-wash, or I use Trader Joe’s Nourish Spa Conditioner. (If you haven’t tried their products I highly suggest trying them because they are most Def the Bidness 🙂 Then I use the As I Am Leave in Conditioner and either do twists or a wash and go. When I rock my twist outs I only use extra virgin olive oil to seal my twists and use the leave in conditioner as my styler. I twist up and remove the twists in the morn. (To maintain this style for the week I simply retwist at night)

I rarely rock twists in my hair as a style because I just don’t like how they look on me :/ and when I rock a wash and go I use the Garnier Fructis Pure Clean Gel and I pair it with the clear Eco. (To maintain this style I sleep either on my satin pillowcase or bonnet, then in the morn I touch it up with water and gel to de-frizz some areas) I really love the big twist outs I get…but prefer the wash and go because it makes it easier when I work out.

Describe your favorite go-to hairstyle for days when you don’t have a lot of time to style.
M:
When I rock my wash and goes I don’t worry about it. I just do the style and that’s it, but when I rock my twist outs I do use the stretching method and that’s just twisting it back up every night.

What are some of your problem areas (if any) that require special care and attention?
M:
Since I wear my hair in its curly state I noticed that I don’t have uniformed curls all around and in the very front of my head it’s much looser than the rest…more wavy, so I either use my fingers or straws to get that hair to blend in with the rest.

What are 2 do’s for your texture?
M:
I would say two do’s are Moisturizing and Detangling 🙂

What are 2 don’ts for your texture?
M:
And two don’ts would be constantly Manipulating my hair and Heat styling!!

Is there a blog/webpage where we can find you?

Had to re-read the entire piece to check whether she asked for your opinion on her hook. ‑_- Love your hair Markquisha happy to see a 4A/B trying curly girl method because I’d like to try it too. Oh, and get as many piercings as you want, wherever you want. Canceling out ‘Ms-write-everything-on-my-mind’s madness.

What does this post have to do with Toya Carter?? Furthermore, who cares about this woman’s piercing?? The post is about her HAIR and she still looks great 😛 Stop being a bully, it’s not cool.

I feel so sorry for you. You’re obviously unhappy with yourself, so you’re projecting all of that onto this woman who is clearly more comfortable in her skin. I do hope that you grow…

Ermmm and who needed your opinion!? You need to learn to SHUT UP if u have nothing better to say. How would u feel if ppl say every nasty thing that pops into their head when they first meet u? Learn to say the positive and swallow the negative. Its not cool to just air your opinion abt someone (esp when u don’t knw the person) without thinking abt the impact. Be considerate!

Sometimes commenters forget that the folk in the photos are people with feelings too, and that those feelings can be hurt. I think you look awesome, sassy and stylish, your hair looks great, and the gap in your teeth is really cute.

Don’t sweat it, she obviously has a chip on her shoulder. Carrying-over some bitterness about a post from a day or two ago, SMH. She was the first person to comment…obviously just waiting to attack whoever it was, and it happened to be you. You look great hun, piercing or no piercing.

I understand exactly what you’re saying…having a Big Brother always produces disaster. But spreading positivity is beautiful, and I have to say if only I could get my twists to look that JUICY! That twist updo looks amazing, and I must agree that she has piercing eyes.

Every bit of what I see in your pics is beautiful. I’m not surprised it isn’t well appreciated by some people after all, it isn’t the common type of beauty. Society often deters people from being different but history is full of people who looked different and started a new path within which a lot of us now proudly walk through. Something tells me you actually get a high from the discouraging words you’ve been told. Some people are (oddly) driven by such. It’s a great quality to have, really.

You hair is beautiful, I so wish for the day my hair is like yours, but I’m happy with what I have, patience it will be my second year and loving it you piercing is you it makes you unique people really need to get a grip and find some kind of happiness being on the attack like that can cause heart attacks its not that serious to be so mean just because!!! Grow up!

HERE WE GO AGAIN WITH THE NEGATIVITY!!
The first thing I saw was a gorgeous head of jet black hair, full and chunky strands, followed by gorgeous almond shaped eyes. She’s a stunning looking woman with a unique sense of style as far as I’m concerned and that all that matters.

Marquisha is pretty and if she was in the CharJ video Deuces—she can rap! I kinda fell in love with her–teehee–in that video–she is hot! Her hair has GROWN!!!!! Wonder what she uses for growth?

I am not a fan of piercings and hate I fed into the tattoo phase–it reeks of trying to hard and it doesn’t go with my persona or my career (middle school teacher and college instructor). 🙁 I wish I could get these things removed.
