A Hair Story: Amanda (Lethal Pleazure)
Natural Expression: How long have you been natural?
Lethal Pleazure: I have been natural for 1year and 6 months, but actually growing my hair for 1yr 4 months.
Lethal Pleazure: My decision to go natural was not for any "spiritual awakening" or the need to discover who I was, etc. I was spending a lot of money at the hair salon...every 2 weeks in fact. Soooo, I was like "Um yea I'm gonna do my own hair" and decided I no longer wanted chemicals in my hair. I first decided to grow out the relaxer but still get my hair straightened. I then saw the versatility of natural hair and made a decision to just rock it!
Lethal Pleazure: I transitioned for 7 months with micro braids, and then did the BC.
Natural Expression: What is your Hair Type?
Lethal Pleazure: That is such a difficult question...hmm, ok at the nape of my neck there are loose "S" curls...going up there are spring coils...the sides are more cottony coils...the front left is wavy..and the front right is kinky coily..the nape is kinky curly/wavy. Lets just say I'm HIGHLY TEXTURED.
Lethal Pleazure: Going natural forced me to have more confidence..I also felt very comfortable about being an individual. It also enhanced features on my face that I've never noticed.
Lethal Pleazure: It has made me more aware of what I put inside my body and my overall health. Ive also learned a thing or two about hair and ingredients ;o)
Natural Expression: What would you tell someone who's considering natural hair? And why they should?
Lethal Pleazure: If someone is considering going natural i would first tell them to research and make sure that this is what they want to do. I think that the glorious thing about living is that we have a right to do as we please. The only thing that I request is that one is knowledgeable about the decisions that they maker, whether is being natural or relaxed.
Natural Expression: What products are you currently using?
Lethal Pleazure: I'm currently using products with very high moisturizing abilities; Yes to Cucumbers shampoo and conditioner, Qhemet Biologics Amla Heavy Cream, Organics Lock and Twist Gel; coconut oil, olive oil, etc. I deep condition with Organics Replenishing Pack/ or Hot Oil Six;p
