My name is Aledra Linen I’m 21 years old and I live in Georgetown, SC. My #1 rule in maintaining my natural hair is deep conditioning at least once a week or every two weeks. I also do protective styling by doing twist outs or wearing wigs. My older sister who is currently fighting leukemia was the reason I became dedicated to becoming natural.

I did the big chop July 3rd, 2016 so that means I’ve been natural for 9 months. I was extremely nervous about cutting my hair but so far I’ve enjoyed my natural journey. I manage my natural hair by deep conditioning at least once a week n doing protective styles such as twist outs n wearing a wig on occasions. I drink lots of water and eats lots of fruits and vegetables. I also convince my mother to do natural.
