KP: I cannot pinpoint a bad hair moment, but when I first decided to wear my hair natural I had no clue what to do and I was very unhappy with how my hair looked in general. I was trying to learn from people who did not have my hair texture or the same length, so I had to dedicate some time to learn my hair. It is so important not to compare your hair to other people’s. You will never succeed that way.
HB: What are your do’s & don’ts of styling natural hair?
KP: I don’t have any don’ts when it comes to styling my hair because I live by the motto, “It’s just hair.” I don’t take things like my hair too seriously, but keeping my hair moisturized and stretched is very essential to my hair growth. I do not like my hair to feel dry, and that is very common for natural hair. I try to make sure that I deep condition my hair at least once every two weeks and keep it moisturized.
