4A Natural Hair

What is your name and your profession?
Sage Edgerson, Fashion Student at SUBR

Why did you go natural?
I initially wanted to go natural my junior year of high school but didn’t know how to transition properly so I was forced to get a perm. When I got to college I wanted a change. By then I had detached myself from my hair and it’s length and was ready. I’m sort of a risk taker and love to try new things so going natural was a no brainer for me. I’ve seen many celebs cut their hair (the starting of the natural hair movement) and it motivated me even more to do it because of the freeness of the look.

How long have you been natural and when did you BC?

I’ve been natural almost 4 and a half years, I big chopped on New Year’s Eve of 2010

What are your staple products and hairstyles?

-My staple products are
Motions Curl Cream
Shea butter leave in conditioner
Tresemme Anti Breakage Conditioner
Pantene Co Wash

My staple hair style is a wash and go or now it’s become a wash and blow dry because of how much hair I have. I mostly wear my hair in a fro because I haven’t mastered any other styles that work for my hair.

What are your natural hair goals?

My goal is to grow my hair as long as it can get. Sooner or later I’ll probably be locking up when I’m ready to do something else with my hair.

How do you keep your hair intact overnight?

I wish I could keep my hair intact overnight. Mostly I put my hair in a puff or sometimes leave it as is in a fro but I’d really like to invest in an extra large hair bonnet.

How do you maintain length?

I believe in a strict weekly regiment (deep conditions, detangle) and little to no heat (with the exception of a blow dryer with a diffuser on warm then doing a cool blast). I wet my hair with cold water each time I do a wash & go. Protective styles have helped also. Plus lots of water and trying to eat well!

Name 1 reason you went natural and why you love being natural.

I went natural because I wanted a change. I love being natural because it allowed me to see the real beauty & fierceness in myself. Going natural pretty much changed my outlook on things.

3c/4a natural hair styles

What is your name and your profession?
Catherine – I’m a Nonprofit Program Associate for a small nonprofit in Washington, DC

Why did you go natural?
I’ve never had a relaxer (my Mama hated getting hers relaxed and thought it would make all of my hair fall out) but I flat ironed my hair constantly growing up which made it so dry and limp. And my poor ends were a mess. Not only that, I was tired of how long it took to flat iron my hair when it would only last a few days before starting to frizz and lose its style.

How long have you been natural and when did you BC?
I fully embraced my beautiful curls in 2009. I didn’t do a big chop, but began to wear it curly and slowly trimmed off the dead ends.

What are your staple products and hairstyles?
I LOVE coconut oil! I use it every day. Most of the time it’s all I need to maintain 2nd, 3rd, and even 4th day hair (mixed with a little bit of water and lavender oil). My favorite brand to use is La Tourangelle 100% Organic Virgin & Unrefined Coconut Oil.
I also can’t live without my Kinky Curly Knot Today Leave-In Conditioner, Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie, and Kinky Curly Curling Custard. I also make sure to massage tea tree oil onto my scalp when necessary, and rinse my hair with a cap-full of Raw Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar once or twice a month.
My go-to hairstyle is a wash and go, but I also love wearing a bantu knot-out.

What are your natural hair goals?
I love fullness and length so my ultimate hair goal is for my hair to grow to the middle of my back. Other than that, I just strive to keep it healthy and happy as best I can.

How do you keep your hair intact overnight?
I wear my hair in a pineapple every night and sleep on a satin pillowcase. I would love to wear a scarf or bonnet but those always fall off in the middle of the night!

How do you maintain length?
My hair has always been fairly long, but I do my best to not manipulate it often. I’ve especially noticed a difference since I started finger-combing it. Overall, it seems happiest when I let it do whatever it wants.

Name 1 reason you went natural and why you love being natural.
One of my best friends in college had (and still has) gorgeous curls and encouraged me to put down the flat iron and heat, and I haven’t looked back since. I love how big my curls are and how unruly they can be at times, but mostly I love how much more comfortable I feel with them compared to when I wore my hair straight. I feel more myself and love embracing the way God intended my hair to be.

Where else can we find you on the net?
I can be found on Instagram @misstouche. I mostly post about healthy food and hair!
