I am 20-year-old freelance natural hair blogger who hails from the island of Jamaica. I have been natural all my life, however, I started caring for my natural hair in May 2013 after being introduced to Nina Pruitt's youtube channel. After that, I subscribed to a lot of natural hair blogs, watched youtube videos and was addicted to Pinterest natural hair boards so I could learn more about my hair. I have always had long hair when I was younger however when I entered high school the state of my hair changed when other people started caring for it. I started applying what I learned from the videos, posts, and pictures about hair growth, regimens, product usage, moisture and length retention to my hair. And, I was able to grow my hair from armpit length to bra length. 99.9% of the time my hair is in a twist out or a braid out because that's the style I love the most. I became a freelance natural hair blogger when I wanted to earn money and considered what I would be good at. I knew I could write natural hair articles since I love natural hair, watch videos regularly, give hair advice to other girls, and care, nourish and embrace my mane. I hope you enjoy my guest posts as much as I enjoyed writing it. Finally, remember that you are beautiful with your natural hair!
