"I feel now more than ever, I'm very in love with my natural hair. It's definitely been an up and down journey of not wanting to be seen without something that's not mine on my head. Now, I’m embodying and embracing, every aspect."

What are your hair goals at the moment? 

I think now it's just about really owning every aspect of my hair and knowing that there's so much you can do to it.

 

I really just want to grow my hair. There’s a girl I’ve seen online that’s got this massive natural afro. I remember when I first started my hair journey and started getting monthly treatments. I showed my stylist a picture of the girl’s hair and I said this is what I desire, and we’ve been monitoring it since

 

It’s been four months now and I’m getting there. I’m waiting to get my hair right here to my shoulders, that’s exactly why when I saw the Fluff n Fro, I was like ‘this is what I want my natural hair to be’.

I just love experimenting. I think you can tell it on my page that I have a different look every other day. For me it's all about being able to express how I feel and I believe that anything that you want to express, you can do it through your hair.

"I really wanted to know what it felt like to take care of your hair in the same way that you take care of your body or your skin. Since then, my love for my natural hair - it is up here!"

What does RUKA (to do hair like never before) mean to you?

Everything... I am obsessed with trial and error when it comes to hair, like hair is such a big part of my job, but also how I feel inside. If my hair looks good, I feel amazing.

 
I believe that being experimental with hair allows us to almost embody a different form of self. For me, when I have my curly hair, the instant energy I feel is, you're a bad b, nobody can step to you. And when I had my straight hair on my birthday, that was supposed to be the most glamorous version of myself, and I embodied that.

 
And when I have my hair out and It's like curly and it's big, I feel like a queen so for me, my hair is just such a big part of representation. It can be a representation of anything and where I am in that moment.

Thanks for today!
