1. How long have you been natural? Did you transition or big chop?
I've been natural since 2000 and did so by transitioning. No one big chopped back then, however, after having my son in 2013 I experienced a LOT of post-partum shedding and breakage. As a result, I did my first big chop in February of this year, and haven't stopped cutting it since!

2. How would you describe your hair texture?
Type 4. Kinkt Curly.

3. What is your go to style and how do you maintain it?
Twist outs. EASY as pie.

12. What would you say is your most prized item in your closet?
I really don't have a prized item. My moto jacket collection is pretty extensive, however, so I would say they are very prized.

Bloggers

14. Since you are obviously a ChicNaturalista what would be a bit of fashion advice for our readers? I would say that style and your style will always evolve. The more comfortable you are with yourself the more risks you will take. Just be yourself and have fun!
