Meet Anya: A Little Naturalista Who Loves Her Hair (Pictures)
Latest posts by Dianne Austin (see all)
Our niece Anya is a beautiful young girl who is in love with her natural hair. She loves trying new looks and truly appreciates the uniqueness of her hair.
I decided to interview her to learn more about her natural hair love affair.
She also shared lots of great pictures of her journey over time.
Here’s what she had to say:
NHCN: What do you like most about your hair?
Anya: What I like most about my hair is I looooove the fluffiness and how it gets soooo soft after I take a shower.
NHCN: What do you like least about it?
Anya: It’s starting to be really hard to brush my hair. I hate it when it gets really hot and I get soooo sweaty.
NHCN: What are your favorite ways to style your hair?
Anya: I like to brush my hair in a fro and just brush my hair to the side or in little buns.
NHCN: How do you take care of your hair? (Do you have a favorite shampoo and conditioner? Do you blow dry your hair or let your hair air dry)?
Anya: I don’t have a favorite shampoo or conditioner I like to air dry my hair.
NHCN: What tips or advice would you give young girls with natural hair?
Anya: I don’t really know. Just take care of your hair and get it cut when the ends are split to take care of it.
NHCN: Do you have any other thoughts that you’d like to share about your hair?
Anya: Not any in particular.
Thanks for sharing with us. Your hair looks beautiful!
