Ericka went natural 6 years ago after watching the Chris Rock documentary Good Hair – read on to find out more about her story.

How and why did you go natural?

I returned natural by big chopping. I decided to return natural after watching the movie ‘Good Hair’ by Chris Rock. My breaking point was seeing the chemical reaction between a relaxer and a Pepsi can and I began to think what it could possibly be doing to my hair, scalp, and body.

What is your current hair care routine?

Currently, I shampoo my hair weekly to bi-weekly depending on my hair and scalp needs, deep condition each time I use shampoo, I moisturize upon my needs. Overall, I listen to my hair and do as my hair needs.

What is your favorite thing about being natural?

My favorite thing about being natural is that I grew to be more in love with myself. I love the versatility of my kinky coils.

What would you want someone who is newly natural or considering going natural to know?

I would want them to know that it is life-changing, it can be challenging at times but it is rewarding.
