Mane matters with Magdalene Ohikere

AN: Can you tell us who you are and what you do?
I am Ohikere Magdalene, I am a microbiologist by profession. I also have a huge crush on music, dance and drama. So i can be best described as a dancer/singer/actress.....
Relaxed Hair

AN: What's your thoughts about natural hair?
My thoughts about natural hair is "Nature" which can not be made by mankind it's in every one. it's a beautiful thing that cannot be cheated, natural Hair is a beautiful gift from GOD.

AN: Why did you decide to go natural?
Well I got tired of relaxing and my hair getting burnt and getting a good relaxer and all. I also detest anything hot like dryer, straightener and all.

AN: Did you do a BC or you transitioned?
I got tired of the transition stage in March 2014 so I just went for a BC
Trying to transition 

AN: Any fears about the BC?
No, 'cause I love challenges and taking bold steps

AN: What has your experience been?
Awesome, though still in a pretty tough time trying to make time for my hair and getting perfect result.

AN: What was/is your biggest fear about going Natural?
The question "Would I be able to get it right?" but as you can see, i'm getting a hold of it

AN: Do you think you are in it for the long haul or is it just a phase?
Definitely I am in it for a long haul. I never give up and I won't .

AN: Do you have any hair regimen you stick to?
Still on that research and finding out what works for me.

AN: Whats your go-to protective style? 
For now, My hair :) Its still too short to do anything different.

AN: There are people that definitely have negative comments about you hair, how do you deal with that?
So far, I've not gotten any negative comment about my hair. But if and when I do, the easiest thing to do is just ignore, everyone is entitled to their opinion.

AN: Whats your must have product and accessory?
Recently, I found out about the Deep conditioning, I love what its doing to my hair, and I can see progress. 

AN: Whats your advice to anyone planning to ditch relaxers?
Just do it! 

Thank you for your time.
