1BlessedNatural Feature: Freda Fro

1. What made you decide to go natural?

It wasn't really a decision. I just got too active to schedule in relaxers, so I just kind of gave up on it. In fact, I had no idea what effect a relaxer had or didn't have on my hair.

2. What were your friends and loved ones' reactions to your decision?

My friends were surprised, but liked my haircut. But my family....umm *rolls eyes* lol they're coming around. Plus, two of my sisters just discovered they have alopecia, so the doctor ordered them to stop relaxing.

3. What is your current hair regimen?

I co-wash whenever I feel like my hair needs it. I detangle with conditioner and seal in the moisture every night. Then I wet it and style the next morning. I deep condition once or twice a week, and I shampoo once every two months or less.

4. What is your favorite hair style?

A flat twist in the front, and the rest in a puff or bun

5. What are your 3 favorite hair products?

Silkience Silky-Smooth Conditioner, Spa-Haus by Silkience conditioner, and Dabur Vatika Enriched Coconut Hair Oil
6. What is the most important thing that you have learned about going natural?

I've learned to love my hair, and most importantly myself, because going natural made me truly confident.

7. What advice do you have for someone who is thinking about going natural?

It may seem hard at first, but trust me it gets easier.
