IMG_2103_2

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.

  Anything you want the readers to know? Inspirational words? The secret to having healthy hair is patience. A lot of naturals think that natural hair is stronger than chemically-altered hair when actually it is more fragile. So the more TLC and the less manipulation along with keeping your natural hair moisturized helps with obtaining and maintaining healthy natural hair. Embrace your natural tresses and it will reward you in the long haul. Stay Naturally Beautiful.
