So excited to post the first Journey Feature. Meet Rachel Kenlaw, a senior Supply Chain major from Washington DC. I asked her a few questions about her natural hair journey.
Here is what she had to say.
1. How long have you been natural? Why did you go natural?
I have been natural my entire life. In high school I begged my mom to relax my hair and she refused-so I started pressing my hair incessantly. Once a part of my hair broke off she took away all my heat styling tools and literally forced me to learn my natural curl pattern. Fast forward to today, I started my locs 4 months ago and it has been one of the best decisions of my life.
2. What are your favorite products?
The ManeChoice gel, Mielle Organics Babassu Oil Deep Conditioner, Mielle Organics Vitamins, Shea Moisture 10in1 Deep Conditioner, Avocado Oil, Flaxseed gel (home made you can find the recipe online)
3. What are your least favorite products?
Coconut oil (my hair does not respond well to it), Ms. Jessie’s (any product), Mixed Chicks
4. What edge control do you use
Mielle Organics Edge control is the best I have ever used. It holds your hair and is made with all natural ingredients that won’t break your edges.
5. Where do you see your look going next?
I just want to take great care of my locs as they mature by ensuring that they are moisturized and I am consuming healthy foods to help nourish my scalp.
