Wonderful! Honestly, this is so amazing and I still canâ€™t believe it. Being one of the Motions Naturally Fabulous girls has been a great experience and opportunity.
Well I was at work when I heard the news, so it took all my will power to not act ridiculous in my cubicle. But I do remember going into my bossâ€™ office and dancing like a crazy person. After I closed the door that is.
No and it is a dream come true. Just to have a company like Motions thatâ€™s available every where I shop for hair like mine is awesome. But to also be able to help introduce the Motions Naturally You product line to the world is an incredible experience and such an honor. Â
The Motions Hydrate My Curls Pudding is definitely my favorite product from the line. I like to wear my hair in two strand twists and it really keeps my twists shiny and moisturized.
Being able to participate in a real professional photo shoot with Motions and Essence was unreal. It was like a dream. The other Naturally Fabulous girls and I were just so amazed that all of it was happening. Then on top of that to be in a magazine like Essence for the world to see is just incredible.
To be honest I was extremely nervous. This was my very first real photo shoot and I of course was a bit anxious. But it was also one of the coolest things I have ever experienced. Â There were so many people and I think we took hundreds of pictures. I would definitely do it again!
The photos are just beautiful. All 3 of us look amazing. Our hair and makeup came out wonderful. I am such a simple girl so it is a shock to see myself all made up. Â But they really are just beautiful pictures.
I have been natural for 4 years. The main reason I wanted to give up my years of relaxing was because I have always wanted big beautiful hair. The bonuses that came with being natural is that my hair is the longest and healthiest it has ever been. But I have worked really hard to be gentle and take excellent care of my hair. I don’t see myself ever relaxing again.
I feel like one of my goals has been accomplished. I have a natural hair YouTube channel and that was my intention when I started making videos. That is exactly what I am setting out to do. I want to help people especially women feel good about their true selves. This includes hair, career and just their lives in general. It feels great and I hope to continue.
I have gotten so much support and love from my family, friends and followers. It just feels so good for people to support me and be proud of what I am doing.
My advice for anyone with or wanting natural hair is be patient and enjoy the experience. Its easy to get swept up in someone else’s hair and journey and you miss enjoying your own hair at its different stages and lengths. Â Learn what your hair likes and experiment with different styles and products.
