Naturally Fierce Feature: Dāsha

0
1. Tell me a little about yourself and your hair journey. (Name, where you’re from, etc)

-Well, my name is Dāsha Jordan and I’m a 20-year-old college student. I’m from Atlanta, Georgia, which means unpredictable weather and a lot of outfit changes. My hair journey has been anything but easy. I’ve gone from being natural to getting braids to having a perm and back natural. All throughout this process, I’ve dealt with heat damage, over manipulation, lack of moisture etc. Honestly, it’s a learning process and I’ve learned the most when I’ve made mistakes with my hair.

2. How long have you been natural? Have you always embraced your curls?

-I’ve been completely natural for about 3 years but I was transitioning for about 3 years before that. In the beginning, I wasn’t so sure about my curls so I would get them pressed.  But, after a while I got more comfortable with them (as well as looking up some good tutorials and tips) and I started to love my kinks and curls. Now, there’s not a person in this world that could tell me anything different.

3. What motivated you to transition? Were you a transitioner or a Big Chopper& why?

-Well for the first couple of years, I would get weaves and wear them consistently. So one day I thought “ what’s the point of getting a perm when I’m just going to get it braided back up and weave sewn on?” From then on, I decided to just transition to natural while wearing weaves. Big chopping just didn’t seem like an option.

4. How would you describe your hair?

-I would say that my hair is a thick texture with a mix of curls and coils. Like most naturals, my hair has a few different curl types but I find that its mostly tighter curls. It also tends to frizz out after the first couple days of a style which I don’t mind.

5. What do you love most about your hair?

-I love the thickness of my hair the most. When it comes to styles that don’t come out quite right, it’s never a problem. I can always fluff my hair and push it into a puff to hide a failed attempt at a style.

6. What has been the most memorable part of your journey? Has it been easy or difficult or both?!

-The most memorable part of my journey was when just last year I started doing a lot more research and seeked more information about how to take care of my hair. I realized that I wasn’t properly moisturizing my hair, I wasn’t deep conditioning, and I wasn’t properly detangling. I decided to make a change and incorporate certain things into my regimen to improve the health of my hair. Overall, My journey has been anything but easy but the more information you know, the better you get at handling setbacks.

7. How has dating been while natural?

– Well a lot of the guys that I’ve dated haven’t been affected by the fact that I’m a natural woman. Many tend to miss my from when I switch up my style and ask why I changed my hair

8. Do you have any styling tips?
– Well just the basics; always unravel your style of choice(bantu knots , two/three strand twists, etc.) when your hair  completely dry for the most definition.
– Make sure to incorporate proteins in to your regimen when you feel your hair is mushy, doesn’t hold moisture and the elasticity of your hair has changed
– What you put into your body is reflected on your skin and I your hair so drink a lot of water.
– If you use a pick to fluff, make sure to stretch the section and then pick from root to the end.

7. What are (or were) some of your favorite transitioning hairstyles or current dos’

​-Some of my favorite transitioning hairstyles was weaves; I’d suggest using a closure or using as the least amount of heat as possible. I loved to wear box braids, Marley twists, yarn twists and braids as well as faux locs.

8. What have your experiences been as a ‘natural.?Any memorable reactions from family or others?

​-Well for the most part, I’ve gotten positive reactions from the people around me. Once back when I was just becoming natural, my grandma would say, “ what’s going on with your hair? You need to go get it pressed. “ Other than that, all other responses were positive. Some people didn’t believe that it was my real hair because it looked so nice.

9. What is your hair regimen (including fav products)?

​- Currently, I’m working to maintain shampooing, conditioning, and deep conditioning once a month. In between shampooing, Ill co-wash and deep condition. Once a month, I will do a hot oil treatment to maintain or add shine to my hair. Once my hair has been cleaned, Ill-use the LOC method to seal in the moisture and prepare for whatever style I choose. Sometimes, depending on if my hair feels dry during the week, Ill re-moisturize my hair. Some of my favorite products to use are the Jamaican castor oil fro butter, Shea Moisture coconut and hibiscus curl enhancing smoothie, African pride olive miracle growth oil and lush soak and float shampoo bar.

10. What are some of your favorite natural hair websites,YouTuber’s, or blogs?

​- Some of my favorite sources for natural hair information are Naptural95’s YouTube channel, Journey to Waistlength’s YouTube channel, Discovering Natural’s YouTube, MyNaturalSista’sYouTube channel, and Curlynikki.com. Even doing a quick pinterest search has helped me out.

11. Anything you want the readers to know? Inspirational words?

​-Being a natural haired individual will not be an easy journey. You will have misunderstandings, setbacks, and accomplishments.But On your journey, you’ll learn a lot about yourself and hair as well as become a lot more comfortable with your hair even when it doesn’t come out BOMB.com. Its best to be patient and only focus on the health of your own hair. Try to find the products that work well for you. Never compare your hair to anybody else because then you start to doubt your decisions and become frustrated that your hair isn’t where someone else’s hair is.
