* Tell us a little bit about your background (Name, background, etc,)
Hi curlfriends, it’s your girl Frankie Monroe. I was born in Houston Texas but have lived all over Texas and a lil in California.
I went natural after having my first child. My daughter gave me the courage to finally go natural in the efforts to live by example to build her self confidence and acceptance of self.
•How did you transition (or did you BC)?
One night I just went for it and chopped it all off! It was liberating and scary all in once.
•What emotional struggles, if any, have you faced since going natural?
At first it was hard because I had no clue how to really get the results I wanted. After letting go of the image I had in my head of what my hair should look like I began to really see what my hair could do.
•How do others respond to your hair?
I get lots of love. Especially after going blonde.
•What’s your go-to style?
I use to always do twist outs.. now I do a perm rod set and I have never been happier.
•What’s your favorite product and why?
I would say my favorite product is Cantue Leave In conditioner.. I used it when relaxed and I love it even more now that I am natural.
•What piece of advice would you share with someone who is just starting out?
Have patience and relax. It’s not going to be easy at first but it will get easier.. I promise.
•Who is your hair crush?
Mmmm… I have one in particular.. Arielvscupcake
We are in the works of collaborating on a video and I am so in love with her hair and makeup skills.
