Natural Hair Crush of the Week: Danielle MzSkeen


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

I decided to go natural on accident. After moving to NYC from Florida, I went to a new hairdresser to get a perm and hated the way it came out. I decided to start going to the Dominican hair salon to get blow-outs and eventually I decided to just go natural after I felt the texture of my natural hair as opposed to the permed ends! I’ve been natural now for almost a year. . .it will be a year October 29th.

NB: What are your natural hair goals?

My natural hair goals are to maintain optimal length and healthy hair. Most people have either or. . . I want BOTH! I want long, healthy hair!


NB: Who is your natural hair crush??

Originally, my natural hair crush was host, Tanika Ray, HOWEVER, our hair textures are not the same, so now, I like Yaya and YOU…Natasha of!!

NB: What is your current natural hair regimen?

I typically co-wash every other day and shampoo every two weeks. Once a week, I dedicate a day (usually Sunday) to really focus on my hair by doing deep conditioners and hot oil treatments.

Her bantu knot out on the right is everything!! love it!

NB: Describe your personal style

My personal style is “casual chic”. . . I go for comfort first when choosing outfits. I love bright colors and bold prints! I don’t like to be too matchy-matchy though!

NB: Any tips for transitioners?

DO NOT GO TO THE DOMINICANS!!!! LOL I did that and that is how I messed up! I have heat damage because of that. I will also tell transitioners to start using natural hair products NOW.

NB: What is your staple all natural hair product?

Eco-styler Olive Oil Gel

    Hi Margaret!

    thank you!! For the bantu knots, I did them on clean hear and used "shea moisture curl enhancing smoothie". It lasted for about 4 days. We got some really bad rain here in NYC so the humidity and everything really messed it up! Try it!
