Tell us a little bit about your background.
My name is La Shawn Wallace I am from San Diego, California I have lived in Dallas, TX for over 10 years. I have been in the Auto Insurance industry for over 7 years. I also have my own business I design clothes and shoes.
What are your reasons for going natural?
I decided to go natural after I cut my hair. I loved my new growth hair texture when it started growing back. Since then I decided I no longer needed a relaxer.
Did you transition ( or did you BC)?
I did not big chop I transitioned by wearing weaves and braids for about one year. My hair grow out really quick. Trimming my ends I finally cut the rest of the relaxer off.
I had struggles in the beginning when my roots where curly and my ends still had chemical damage. Some days I wanted to give up. So proud of myself for sticking with the journey.
What’s your go to style? What’s your favorite product and why?
My go to style would be a twist or braid out. With these styles I know I would have a great hair day. My staple products would be Shea Moisture Style Milk and Aunt Jackie’s Ooh La La Curl and Coil’s. These products I love they give me definition and shine. There are so many products out there I need to try.
What advice would you give someone just starting out?
My advice I would give to someone starting out. Would be to be very patient. The transitional stage is a process. I would tell them to follow fellow natural hair bloggers for tips and advice.
My hair crush is Yolanda Renee I love her personality and style. I feel we have the same hair type.
