Hii lovelies!

My name is Talaya, and once I went natural, I NEVER went back! Lol. I’ve been natural for about a year and a half now. I’ve cut my hair into a pixie style several times now, but it wasn’t until my last big chop that I became 100% natural and stopped getting relaxers. I absolutely love all natural hair. I feel that it is so beautiful and brings so much personality to the table! I cut my hair in May of 2015 and let it grow until August of 2016 before I decided to chop it all off again lol. (I do that A LOT)

I’ve always had naturally curly hair, but I’ve always gotten relaxers, I would dye my hair, bleach my hair, and straighten it like crazy. It wasn’t until I realized that my curls were completely fried and stringy and straight that I knew I had to take that plunge into the natural world. Now, with that being said it was never easy lol. My curl pattern changed so frequently and products that worked for my hair in the beginning stopped working about month 3 of being natural.

I’ve had to play around with different styles until I was able to feel super comfortable with this new look on myself. I started off using only Shea Moisture products (they’re amaze balls, btw) and now I use pretty much any bomb curl products under the sun! I never had to go through the transitioning stage since I big chopped, so I’m not sure how that process goes, but with natural hair patience is always KEY! My #1 rule to maintaining beautiful, healthy curls is to keep them well fed! By that, I mean keep those babies moisturized and trim when needed.

Treat your curls like you treat your body (in the most healthy way lol) and you’ll flourish! I honestly would not trade my decision to go natural for anything! I feel beautiful and ready to take on anything thrown my way. I am so free with my natural hair and I have more confidence than I’ve ever had. I love that I can help other women with their questions about natural hair and just being able to inspire women to love themselves whether they’re natural or relaxed. If you’re questioning whether or not to go natural, honey GO FOR IT ! We all welcome you with open arms 😊
