I always say I'm essentially a writer because that's the one thing I knew I would do as a child. Telling stories for people who can't and sharing experiences is at the core of my existence. So I fused my passion for storytelling and writing into brand management and creating visual content around natural hair.
Each person's relationship with their hair is personal, that's why we love highlighting many different perspectives here. Today we bring you three stories: Nadia, Ninia, and Patience tell us a bit about themselves and their experience, enjoy!
We were so impressed with the super talented Victoria Simba, and hope you are as delighted as we were with this wide ranging conversation on Living a Creative Life and finding Encouragement through the Journey. Enjoy!
What are some common misconceptions you hear about hair loss or aging?The main one would be that nothing can be done about it. Medical research continues to discover potential treatments. One shouldn’t struggle in silence. A good place to start is to seek out advice from a healthcare professional.
My hair has been relaxed, texturized, and locked. I have very tight curls, so when it was natural, it was hard to manage, when it was chemically treated, it always broke off eventually, often at the crown. I could never retain length, so I had to keep it quite short. Now, just 2.5 years after starting my locks from a very short afro, my hair is the longest it has ever been and it's quite easy to maintain.
