What is your name and your profession?
My name is Keisha & I am a Occupational Therapist Student
Why did you go natural?
The reason why I went natural is because I got tired of the creamy crack (relaxers) making my hair so thin and choppy looking. In the beginning getting relaxers was nice but as time went on relaxers were damaging my hair and my hair needed a breakthrough. So I thought to myself why not go back to my original roots.

What are your staple products and hairstyles?
My staple products are: Castor Oil, Shea Moisture Curl Enhance Smoothie, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Shea Moisture Leave In conditioner, Eco Syling Gel. The hairstyle you would probably see me rocking the most is a braidout or a fro hawk. Those are my two favorite styles that never fails me.
What are your natural hair goals?

How do you keep your hair intact overnight?
I would usually re-twist or re-braid my hair overnight and sleep with a bonnet.
How do you maintain length?
I maintain length by always keeping my hair stretched as much as possible. Simply with a braid out, adding water to my hair tends to make it shrink a lot so i try not to add so much water.
Name 1 reason you went natural and why you love being natural.
I went natural because I wanted to prove friends and family that I can still be/look/feel/beautiful with my kinky coily hair. I love being natural because its a part of me and it makes me feel free. I love the versatility of my hair and the many different unique styles that I can create. My hair always keep people guessing.
