We are debuting a new series called, Naturals on the Run. It will highlight naturals divas in the community.
Meet Tristine who big chopped 1 year ago (August 2011) and has been loving it ever since!
She was first relaxed at the age of 6 or 7, and experienced excessive breakage and shedding. Her next relaxer was in high school because she wanted to fit in with the "in-crowd". After experiencing issues with growth and breakage, Tristine decided she wanted hair that was healthier and half the cost! She decided to transition while pregnant using braids as her preferred method.
Being a mother, she has a very simple regimen. She washes, moisturizes and seals using products from the Shea Moisture line as well as the Carols Daughter line.
When asked what advice she'd give to anyone contemplating going natural she replied, "It's the only way to go for healthy hair".
Tristine has a 4 year old daughter whom she plans on keeping natural until she's old enough to decide what she wants for herself.
We think Tristine is a beautiful inside and out! Thanks for being our first Natural on the Run!
