Fierce Curly Feature

Image

Hello Dears,

This month’s Fierce Curly is a sista with so much style and confidence, that I had no choice but to feature her. She has the most beautiful chocolate rich skin, and doesn’t let her complexion stop her from wearing all the colors of the rainbow to express herself. (which she does well 🙂 Everyone get to know Sophia!

1.What made you decide to become natural?

I decided to return natural again After I promised my grandmother That I would while on her sick bed.This is actually my third time “going” natural.

2. What sets you apart from other naturals in regards to your style ?

My style is that more of Urban Boheiman Chic I can say. I love to mix and match stylish items from all eras and trends and Rock it. I can be laidback casual, or Boheiman Rock Star the next.

3. What are the three products that you can’t live without ?

Natural Love ButterCreme, Tangles and Beyond Conditioner, and Hairitage Hydration Soft Coconut Marshmallow….And Water if i can add that.:)

4. Would you promote natural hair to younger girls? Why or why not?

Yes. I have actually been teaching a few young teenagers that recently return natural with this last year. It allow them to see their hair in its natural state. It also allow them to embrace the hair and image that as given them at birth and to love that image no matter what. Teaching our young ladies Self-love is always an outstanding goal.

5. What do you love about being natural ?

The Versatility. I can be “straight” one week and then have my curly coils the next. I still can have color(dye) my hair, style, and be creative. Ive been blessed to meet some amazing women on this journey as well. Natural I Will Stay. Im Not Going Back This Time. 🙂

Most Moisturizing Braidout Ever!

Last night I oiled my hair with Tropical Traditions Gold Label 100% Coconut Oil. Chile let me tell you what I added to it to get the most moisturizing braidout ever!

Ready?! The Blue Magic Hair Grease! Remember in a past post I shared with you all that it was a great sealant ? I had to show you all I wasn’t pulling your leg. Why go out and pay all that extra money for something you can get at an affordable price right in your neighborhood? Everyone might not agree with me ,and choose to still order and pay high shipping cost for a brand name .That is fine, I’m just simply sharing what I found for cheaper and is more accessible. 
I made sure to run the coconut oil over each strand of hair pulling down with a closed palm. Sure enough my hair started to wave, it honestly don’t take much for my hair to curl or wave , water and conditioner will do the trick , sometimes only water.  If your hair is a bit more reluctant then you might want to add something on top of your oil for hold. Anyhoo, next I put the Blue Magic Grease on top using the open palm technique and braided.

Just because I wanted to I added my castor oil mixture to my scalp in the areas I feel need to be attended to. From there I braided and put on my satin hair bonnet.

Fabolous Curlie Kids Hairstyles!

Here is a two strand twist front, with a top knot done on Type 1 hair. Even though this natural kid’s hair is straight her mom was still able to get the twist to hold. The key to getting the twist really tight is to get as close to the scalp as possible. With this hair style she can easily tie it down at night, and remain cute during play time. I think this is a great style for a natural of any age.
