Tell me a little about yourself and your hair journey. (Name, where you’re from, etc):
My name is Tamika Lee and I’ve been natural for 9 years. I am a Delaware native by way of military. I went natural on accident while attending college. When my close friend told me I couldn’t wear a weave or braids in her wedding, I was devastated. Braids were easy to manage and were my go to style for the past year. I opted to straighten my healthy hair for the big event and the end result was all the proof I needed to remain chemical free. It was the shiniest and healthiest I had ever seen it. Being natural allows me to be my BOLD beautiful self.
How would you describe your hair?
I would describe my hair as B.O.L.D. (Beautiful, Outstanding, Lavish and Determined) my hair has a personality of its own. I mean seriously some days she has a complete attitude and no style will work. But other days she is flawless and my pattern embraces its curls, kinks. Either way I LOVE my hair.
What do you love most about your hair?
I love my hair because it allows me to express exactly who I am without using words. It has a mind of its own (which I love) and makes a lasting impression. My hair has versatility and my texture is unique.
What are (or were) some of your favorite transitioning hairstyles or current dos?
Some of my favorite transition hairstyles were braids!! I wore braids like they going out of style (lol). Then to switch it up I wore a full sewn in.
