Whats your name?
Monica, monicajoi on YouTube
Where you from?
Raised in Michigan but now I live in Atlanta, Georgia.
How long have you been natural?
What made you want to go natural?
I hated the money and time I wasted in salons, my fine hair was dry,had no body and I finally realized I had a choice.
Whats your hair routine?
I co-wash weekly or bi-weekly depending on my style.( I shampoo once a month.) I moisturize with Qhemet Biologics Burdock Root Butter Cream and seal with Lil Better Butter.I almost always style my hair while its still wet. I pre-poo depending on how dry my hair feels that week.
Whats your favorite hair product?
I’m biased, Lil Better Butter because I make it (free) but V05 conditioner is close second because it 99 cents, LOL.
What troubles you most about your hair?
After three years, I’ve decided my hair isn’t the problem it’s probably something I’m doing or not doing to it or for it. I am also a puff monster so if I can’t do anything else I make a puff. 😀
Whose your hair inspiration?
Jill Scott and everyone else I ever saw in my life with a fire natural ‘do.
What advice would you give to newly naturals?
Moisturize, Research and be honest with yourself. Many people think cutting off relaxed hair will transform them into a new person. You will be the same person with short hair, so don’t plan to become a home stylist if you haven’t been practicing or plan to make a big change.
