Don’t you just love natural hair features as much as I do?
I was approached by the lovely India Lindsey who came across my blog and saw that I occasionally feature some natural hair girls and asked if she could be featured on my blog. My response? OF COURSE! 😀
My name is India. My friend’s name is Shay. We are both 22. I’ve been natural since July 2011 and Shay has been natural for about a year. I decided to become natural my senior year of college. I had severe dandruff and I wanted to start my hair fresh! Being natural sort of came by accident but I loved it so much that I continued not perming my hair! My hair regimen consists of a bi-weekly co-wash and deep condition, a nightly seal of (water, oil and eco-styler gel) for my twists and a trim every three months.
We started the Instagram page @NaturalQueens in March 2013 as a way to connect with other naturals. My advice to other naturals would be “don’t try to control your hair, natural hair is suppose to be free and wild. In the beginning it will seem hard and it will seem as though everyone has a better texture than you but being natural means embracing your texture and finding what brings out the best of YOUR hair!”
