In three sentences or less describe yourself
I am a happy, spontaneous and ambitious girl (or actually ‘woman’, because I am 27! LOL), wife and mother of two kids. I really enjoy my life and everything that I do. One of those things is writing for my own website www.myblackhair.nl which I created with my twin sister in 2009. We love to inspire all black women in the Dutch speaking country’s, whether their hair is natural, straightened or weave’d up.
What city and state do you live in?
Suriname, South America (I was born and raised in The Netherlands, moved to Suriname in 2011)
How long have you been natural?
Almost 3 years
How did you kick off your natural hair journey?
- Big Chop
What product in your natural hair arsenal is your absolute favorite?
I love (Jamaican black) castor oil right now! I think it’s one of the best oils for us ‘type 4 girls’ with thick hair.
What is your go-to hairstyle?
Currently I have two hairstyles that I like. The first one is twists with a fake bun by using Marley braids (see pictures). The second one is the twist out! The first one is very simple and after a few days I just unravel all of my twists for a defined twist out. By day 3 or 4 of my twist-out, it’s time to wash my hair again. To make my twist (out) I always use a curl crème or pudding. Current fav’s are the curl crème’s from Jane Carter Solutions and Curls Unleashed (ORS). And of course I am using my castor oil to seal my ends. When I get tired of my natural curls I like to put box braids in my hair.
When it comes to hair, beauty and fashion is there a website, blog or vlog you can’t get enough of?
When it comes to hair I really like the following YouTube channel: ‘My Natural Sisters‘, ‘Sadora J‘ and ‘NaturalMe4c‘. Fashion wise I like to follow Shirley B. Eniang from Meek ’n Mild.
Is there an online store like ASOS or Curl Mart that you love shopping at?
My sister and I have our own webshop ,called www.ohmyhair.nl. So, I like to shop there 😉 In Suriname I can’t find all the products that I want. So most of the time my sister sends me products.
