Liberian Naturalista: Your's Truely

Hello All! So, I have decided to add yet another new topic to the blog known as "Liberian Naturalista". These posts will showcase Liberian women with natural hair. I have decided to start off with myself. The above pics show my hair growth since 2009.

1. Tell us your name and where you are from

-My name is Chiquita and I live in Monrovia Liberia by the way of Silver Spring Md (USA)

2. What is your profession, and is your hair considered a positive or negative in your field?

-I am a hospitality specialist, blogger, and entrepreneur. Now that I work for myself I am able to rock my hair as I please. When I was an employee my boss and co-workers would look at me like I was a crazy person some times due to the way my hair was styled, but I kept confident and loved myself no matter what.

3.  How long have you been natural?

-I have been natural since the Fall of 2009 (3 years this August)

4. How do you style your hair?

-When I first BC (big chop meaning cut my relaxed hair off) I would wear my hair short and very coily. As it grew I started to go to natural hair blogs and You Tube to learn how to take care of it. I am a huge fan of twist outs, but when my hair becomes a hassle I will throw it in a creative braided style for a while.

5. What is your hair regimen?

-I wash my hair with shampoo maybe once a month. Every Sunday I Co-Wash (wash my hair with conditioner only), then deep condition it with a special mix of honey, castor oil, coco nut oil, olive oil, and hair mayonnaise. When styling I spray it with water, add leave in conditioner, and seal it with Shea butter.

6. How would you describe your personal style?

-I love fashion, so I wear it all and make it look fab!

7. What advice do you have for others that are considering going natural?

-Do not care what anyone else cares about your hair, if you love it then thats all that matters.
