Where do you live? I live in NYC
What do you do? Attorney by day, blogger by night.
How long have you been a natural gal? It's been about 4 years I think, but I never really counted.
What do you love about being natural? I love it's versatility. I know it suits me more than anything else I did before. I also enjoy the camaraderie and community of beautiful women who have found peace with their hair.
What's your hair regimen? This is my ideal regimen but as we all know, life happens and sometimes I take short cuts. But when I'm on my best behavior, it includes, a wash/co-wash once a week, followed by a good conditioner. A treatment every other month (I know I can do better) and I usually start my hair out in twists, from there we get twist- outs, and afros or buns. It depends on my mood and where I have to be that week.
