Hope you all are having a wonderful day!
I have been nominated for the “Fashionista Award” by Kesia Claysie from Islandkynks: Styling Tips for a Natural Gal! Thank you Kesia! I truly appreciate it, you are wonderful!
1) What motivated you to start blogging?
I really wanted to share my natural hair journey with other women that were interested in natural hair! I found it really helpful following the journey of others and I was inspired to begin blogging myself. I hope to help, inspire, and encourage women to continue in their natural hair journey and hopefully learn something from me and my failure and triumphs! I also hope this can be a platform for women to express themselves and continue to have conversations about natural hair and self image in general.
2) Favorite movies?
Selena, Brown Sugar, The Mummy, Love and Basketball, My Best Friend’s Wedding, Slumdog Millionaire
3) What is your dream career?
I would have to say my dream career would be an owner of my own natural hair care line!
4) Top wish list items at the moment?
Becoming fit and starting a healthier lifestyle, create the perfect hair care product that would work for all hair types lol, getting a job in engineering at a pharmaceutical company
5) Favorite television shows?
Scandal, Orange is the New Black, Suits, and CSI: Miami
6) What store do you find yourself shopping in the most?
Walmart, Walgreens, and Forever 21
7) Favorite fashion designers?
Don’t really have one, I’ll wear anything I think is cute no matter the label!
8) Describe your dream vacation?
I would love to travel to Greece and experience a different culture! I would love to learn about the history of Greece and visit the museums! I would also love to lie on the beaches all day and enjoy the Mediterranean cuisine! I love to eat lol!
9) What are the goals for your blog?
My goals for this blog is just to give women a platform to speak about natural hair and anything else related to self image and self love! I also hope they can learn and grow with me in my natural hair journey and learn from my errors! I believe blogging creates an amazing platform to meet so many other amazing people, you can learn so much from other peoples experiences!
10) If you had the opportunity to interview a celebrity, who would it be?
Elle Varner, she seems so down to earth and I love her hair and her music!

Let me just say that everyone, no matter race or gender, is welcomed on Hair A.D.D. I, also believe, that women of color experience more backlash and negativity pertaining to our hair than any other race. I believe that women and men of any race can share their journey, but recognize, that people of color experience much harsher criticism than other races when it comes to standards of beauty. Curlynikki was never racially exclusive, or exclusive to women with only certain curl patterns or a certain texture of hair, which in my opinion, means it is a space for anyone to share their journey. Many women and men have their own stories to share dealing with self image issues and self confidence that can stem from looking different than the ideal standard of beauty. I do understand the arguments of “sharing our space” with different races, but in my opinion, as long as other races can respect “our spaces” without trying to falsely internalize our struggles, they are welcome to participate. Curlynikki’s site was created “to serve as an online hair therapy session for those struggling to embrace their naturally curly hair….as a platform for each of you too share your experiences, frustrations, and triumphs of being naturally glamorous,” (About Me page on curlynikki), she never claimed that her brand or website was eclusively for women of color, but of course it was very natural to make that assumption. I definitely feel like women of color need a space specifically for them, but it doesn’t hurt to allow others to participate, as long as they recognize why that particular space was created and respect it. Either way, I believe we can have an intelligent conversation about this matter! Please feel free to leave your opinions respectfully below in the comments section. Let’s have this conversation!
