'I think Natural hair is just a phase for me' Mane matters with Odina

Hello Naturals,

Happy New month. How is the week going?

Meet Odinakachi

Can you tell us who you are and what you do?
My name is Umeizu Odinakachi and I am a student.

What are your thoughts about natural hair?
I think its fun once you realize what you are into.

When/why did you decide to go natural?
I went natural on the Feb. 2015 because of what a so called " hair stylist" did to my hair.

Did you do a BC or you transitioned?
BC of course

What was the experience like?
It was cool and it gave me a new look.

What was/is your biggest fear about going Natural?
My biggest fear is that my hair may never grow again.

Do you have a regimen you stick to? What is it like?

Regimen? I deep condition every month, I do the onion treatment and massage my scalp with JBCO.

What emotional struggles, if any, have you faced since going natural?
INSULTS and comment like " ewwwww this doesn't suit you or what were you thinking before shaving off your hair".

Do you think you are in it for the long haul or is it just a phase?
I think its just a phase.

There are people that definitely have negative comments about you hair, how do you deal with that? 
IGNORE them. Am entitled to my own opinion.

Relaxed hair
What's your must have product and accessory?
Castor oil and head bands.

What is your go-to style?  

What advice do you have for anyone just going natural?
It must really be your decision. And your must be informed by following natural hair blogs and watching videos and of course asking questions.

Where can we find you?

Till then


  1. What did the stylist do that made you go natural?

  2. Your hair will grow back and I hope it makes you consider to be natural for the long haul.

  3. I like the fact that you admitted it's just a phase, you're an honest person. If you ask me, your natural hair suits you better and it looks healthier too. I'm not natural... I don't have an "agenda" but I gotta say it as it- you look so beautiful with natural hair.
