    When it comes to shopping for our natural hair it becomes a means of trial and error. We buy products, we try them and later to find out that our hair does not like that specific product. It shows when our hairstyle did not turn out as expected, too much product build-up, white flakes etc. You name it!!!.

    This is the after effect of watching a million and one Natural Hair YouTube Vloggers. We watch these videos and then are later being introduced to these natural hair products, hairstyles, natural hair care tips that might work for us. This in return results in lots and lots of impulsive purchases. Our house now becomes an at home salon or the looks of a hair section in the drugstore aisle. Read more

    Natural Hair Feature: Bianta

    Tell me about you, a short bio

    About myself? Well, I go by the name of Bianta. I am a young St. Maartener born and raised. I have an interest for trying out new things.
    How long have you been natural?
    I have currently returned to the natural lifestyle late November 2016.
    Have you ever had a relaxer? Why did you decide to go back natural?
    I have been relaxed twice. When I entered high school and for the next time in September 2015. I never really decided the first time I went natural in 2013. I just had a two-sided Mohawk totally undecided and I did not add in any cream until mid to late 2015. I found the natural hair way too coarse to handle so I texturized it (biggest regret ever). My hair started breaking and my ends became damaged, so my hairstylist Ms. Rachelle of Addicted Hair Lounge did a great job chopping it all off and giving me a permed pixie cut which I loved. I went back to the creamy crack one time after and had not returned since. My hair was getting back all natural during the course of 2016 and right before my birthday in late November of 2016 I was surprised by my boss and two office colleagues and dropped off at the Addicted Hair Lounge for a natural big chop by Ms. Rachelle again. This decision was planned in advance but not decided for the given moment it happened up until it was time to really make a decision on the salon chair and I just went for it.

    I have been natural for 2 years and 4 days today.

    Have you ever had a relaxer? Why did you decide to go back natural?

    Yes, I had relaxer back when I was living in Holland in 2014 and when I came returned to St. Maarten my hair was a disaster; it was severely damaged, so I decided to go back natural.

    Did you go through the transitioning process or big chop?

    I did the big chop off the bat.

    What is your hair regimen like? How often do you wash your hair?

    My hair regimen hmmm… I have 1 spray bottle that I mix a few things and spray my hair whenever I feel like mostly. I wash it every 1 to 2 weeks.

    I want to dye my hair but honestly, I am scared, so I probably won’t.

    Have you ever considered going back to the creamy crack?

    Hell no! I did not chop it off just to go back lol, and I can just easily get a wig if I want to wear my hair straight.

    Do you think that your natural hair gives you an extra flair?

    Um no, I don’t think it gives me an extra flair.

    Does it add to your personal style?

    Right now I don’t think it adds to my personal style, I don’t really do much with it.

    What are some of your go-to styles?

    My go-to styles are simple such as wearing a high puff, single strand twists and twist outs.

    Do you have a length goal?

    I don’t necessarily have a length goal. I just want it to be bigger lol.
