Introducing Natural Hair Crush of the week:Sheena Harris


NB: Why did you decide to go natural? How long have you been natural? 

I went to Iraq in 2003. While there I embarked on a course of self discovery. During that exhibition I begin to feel as though my beauty did not extend beyond my hair. This discovery scared me into self consciousness. After nights of contemplation, I finally decided that by beauty came from within. With this I chopped off all my hair. What a great revelation. I have been beautifully natural for almost 8 years now!!!

NB: What are your natural hair goals? 

I have no desire to ever perm my hair again. In its natural state, I wish to explore all of its many possibilities. In the next six months I want to shave my hair into a brush cut.

NB: Who is your natural hair crush?? 

I love Goapele’s hair and style. Although my hair looks nothing like hers!!

NB: Describe your personal style. 

My personal style is easy going. Because I’m a grad student I love get up and go styles. I don’t mind sitting under the dryer for 2 hours as long as it can last for a month.

NB: Any tips for transitioners? 

If I had any advice for a person transitioning, I would say “Just Do It!!” The longer you wait, the further you are from your beautiful natural hair!!

NB: What is your staple all natural hair product?

At the present I use organic root stimulator.

NB: One word that describes your natural hair.
