“My natural hair journey has been all over the place! I wasn’t brave enough for a big chop back then, so I transitioned in 2011,” she said. “From there, I became known for my beautiful twists outs and slicked ponytails. Three big chops later, I decided to keep my TWA. It has become my signature and there is no turning back for me. Although I’ve had long hair most of my life… Short hair is ME!”

It’s amazing to find a signature style and stick with it. Most people spend their whole lives working to find something about their appearance that makes a statement about their personality… Or find products that perfectly fit that style. She found that in our Thirsty Curls Leave In Curl Revitalizer, which ultimately helps her achieve the sleek look gaining many admirers on Instagram.

“As a native Houstonian, I discovered the Uncle Funky’s Daughter brand back when it was a storefront in the Rice Village area, but didn’t try any products back then,” she said. “Later, I received a sample of the Thirsty Curls in an event goodie bag and fell in love! Thirsty Curls keeps my short cut looking juicy and defined, and is now one of my go-to leave ins.”
