K: I’m technically a Gypsy at this point in my life but I frequent Canada, Jamaica & USA. I am a recording artist, songwriter & aspiring fashionista.
Why did you go natural?
K: When making the decision to go back natural I was definitely at a point in my life where a lot of big changes were taking place for me, it was just another one of those things that just felt “right” at the time :) I made the decision to go natural in January 2010, toke out my weave and never put it back in!
In what ways (if any) has going natural affected you?
K: It’s effected my entire image as an artist. I love rocking my afro on stage. It’s also allowed me to grow in confidence when performing and in everyday life. There’s just something about an Afro that makes you feel like a true DIVA!
How would you describe your hair?
K: Texture = curly/coarse
Thickness = Full
Behavior = Likes to go “Poofy” on me
What is a brief description of your regimen?
K: I use Kenra (Moisturizing Shampoo, Conditioner, Nourishing Masque & Leave in Conditioner) along with Chi’s Silk Infusion. I wash & condition once a week, use the nourishing masque once a month. I also apply Kenra’s leave in conditioner every other day and Chi’s Silk Infusion as needed. A diffuser is my hair’s best friend!
How do you retain length and moisture in your hair?
K: Kenra products are great for moisture and I also see my stylist Janet Jackson of JouJou Hair Salon in Toronto, Canada for her Blue & Moisture Treatment as often as i can!
What mistakes have you made with your hair that you’ve learned from?
K: I honestly feel relaxing was one of my biggest mistakes and regret it to this day (I relaxed my hair for a good 10 years of my life). Yes it helped my mom deal with the mass amount of hair on my head as a kid but it completely changed the strength and texture of my hair. If you can believe it my hair actually used to be thicker and curlier!
What’s the best/most effective thing you do for your hair?
K: My stylist’s specialty treatments
