Our following guest is our Beautiful Ms. Rahkua,
She has beautiful locs since early childhood thanks to her amazing parents!!!
Here is her Natural Hair Story, do enjoy my darlings:
1) Please introduce your amazing self.
A: My name is Rahkua and I am a Mississippi native currently living in Los Angles, CA. I am a professional singer, actress, and model and I also love to work with children and promote education awareness.
2) Did you Transition, Big Chop, Both or Natural from Birth?
A: I have been natural from birth. My parents stated my locs when i was a toddler so I’ve had them for over 20 years now.
3) How long have you been natural?
A: 26 years.
4) What made you return natural?
A: I never left! 🙂
5) How hard or easy was your first year of being natural?
A: I don’t remember the first year because I was too young but in general the early years were a little bumpy because no one was really doing “the natural thing” when I was growing up so I got made fun of a lot. Luckily I was strong enough to stick it out because I love my hair and today’s society is a LOT more accepting.
6) What helped you the most, to remain natural?
A: My parents are natural and all of my siblings that lived in our house are as well so we had a network; we have a support system of encouragement and a standard of natural being “normal”.
7) Your 3 favorite products and why?
A: I’m not really a product person. I use whatever is cheapest and does what I need my hair to do lol. But I like Indian Hemp Grease and I’ve recently fallen in love with the various edge control products.
8) What do you love about your unique tresses?
A: The length and the ease of maintenance are probably my two favorite things about my hair. It’s SO versatile and I switch up my look often.
9) What is your least favorite task when dealing with your natural hair?
A: Wash day is definitely my least favorite. It’s so necessary to keep them clean and looking great but it just takes up such a huge chunk of time. Luckily I don’t have to do it very often.
10) How do you inspire other girls to return natural?
A: I maintain a natural hair blog and youtube vlog that shows the versatility and ease of natural hair and I’m am always encouraging when I see fellow naturals to keep on the path and those who haven’t made the decision yet to at least give it some research and maybe test it out. I try to always display beautiful, maintained hair so they can see a great example and have something to aspire to.
11) So far in your journey, what is your favorite hair style?
A: Though there are like 4-5 that are my go to awesome styles, I think I love the Bunned Frohawk Style best.
