Our correspondent:. Why natural hair?
Kay: It’s the way I was made so I embrace my natural form. Our hair is very versatile and unique. What’s not to love about it ?

Our correspondent:. Looking at how long and hard it is to maintain natural hair, what motivates you to keep going with the decision?

Kay: -Maintenance isn’t really hard. The mindset that our hair is difficult to deal with is what keeps a lot of people from being natural in my opinion . Even if it was hard, I motivate myself because I want healthy and non altering chemicals damaging my hair and body.

Our correspondent:. What is the biggest challenge when it comes to keeping your natural hair.

Kay:- The biggest challenge is determining how I want to style it . I have a lot of hair and I’m also a mum and currently pregnant so I have to find styles that are simple.

Our correspondent:. Your advice to people out there growing their natural hair.

Kay:-My advice is to keep at it , love your hair , and be patient. Find a proper routine that works for you and be gentle with your hair. Don’t be discouraged by others who may say natural hair isn’t for you because it IS for you . It is how you were made. Also, don’t compare yourself to others. Everyone’s hair grows differently. Just remain consistent and watch it flourish .
