Tell us about yourself:  I am an Owner/Stylist/Consultant of Napturally Rooted. I am a wife and mother of 6 which includes a set of fraternal twins. I enjoy my family and enriching the lives of my Husband and children. I love meeting new people and networking about beauty, health and spirituality.

How long have you been natural? Why did you go natural? I have been completely natural for 3yrs as of September 11, 2012. I went natural because I wanted to see my true hair texture and embrace it. I got tired of not being my true self and loving the real me. I was one to wear fake nails, colored contacts, relaxers, occasional weaves, etc. I wanted to strip everything away and just be ME. I did not want to get another compliment and feel obligated to inform the person that it was not my real this or that.

What is your hair type and texture? I am not really into hair typing but I have a mixture of 3c and 4a.

What products and techniques work best for your hair type/texture? Nzuri hair products have done wonders for my hair. I recommend them to everyone. They can be purchased from my site http://www.napturallyrooted.info. I also swear by protective styling the majority of the time and clipping my ends when I feel it’s needed. A great deep conditioning treatment for me is Aussie Moist conditioner coupled with Honey. Put on a shower cap and a bonnet and wear it over night and rinse the next day.

What is your hair regimen and how does it fit into your busy schedule? I shampoo my hair with KRA-Z Hair Gro Shampoo 2-3 times per month. I do not shampoo as frequently as I condition. I use the KRA-Z Hair Gro Conditioner weekly. I love conditioning my hair and sometimes leaving a little in or use it as a leave-in. I do deep conditioning whenever I take my hair down from a protective style. Most styles last two weeks but if I happen to take it down sooner then it’s usually after one week.

Any additional advice? Definitely pick up some Nzuri Hair Follicle Food 61-Ancient Miracle Growth Oil and some KRA-Z Grow Herbal Hair Vitamins from my site (http://www.napturallyrooted.info) to aid in growth, thickness and health of your hair and body from inside out. They work wonders! Be gentle with your hair and limit the amount of tools you use. Detangle in the shower right under the water with your hands. Keep those protective styles in and hair tied up at night.
