Tell us about your natural hair journey

In late 2015, I was forced into the lifestyle against my will. After I had a relaxer put in my hair, I got an allergic reaction. My skin erupted all over, causing hives wherever the processed hair came into contact with it. I didn’t have much of a choice since to begin my natural hair journey.

In June of 2016, I had all of my hair cuts done and began to wear it completely natural. Because I couldn’t discover many information on how to treat 4C Hair on the internet, I decided to learn everything about my hair on my own. As I got more experienced with product knowledge and styling, I launched Typical BlaQueen.

What are some misconceptions about 4c hair?

People often believe that because their hair is dry, brittle, and matted that it is 4C. That isn’t the case at all. Healthy 4C hair is smooth to the touch, able to retain moisture, and has luster and shine. The notion that 4C hair isn’t manageable is also a widespread misconception.

I’m here to tell you that it is! The first step in obtaining the look you want is to understand your hair. What does it respond favorably to and what components does it despise? This takes effort, though, because your hair has been subjected to chemicals for a while after you transition it. When you truly get to know your hair, you will truly begin to love yourself.
