'I don't ever want to relax my Natural hair' Mane Matters with Keren Hanson

Hi Naturals, how is the week going? 


Can you tell us who you are and what you do?

I'm Hanson Keren, I'm 20 years old; I recently just graduated from the Economics Department, University of Nigeria,Nsukka.

What are your thoughts about natural hair?
It's perfect,the texture is bliss.

When/why did you decide to go natural?
Last year December; My processed hair was really thinning out.

Did you do a BC or you transitioned? 

I transitioned. 

What was the experience like? 

It was tough managing both textures, so i usually resorted to braids.

What was/is your biggest fear about going Natural?
My biggest fear was how I'd look and how fast it'll grow.

Do you have a regimen you stick to? What is it like?
I do; Well my daily moisturizing, shea butter and leave-in conditioner application, weekly washing, co-washing and oil to scalp massage. I intend to add the hot oil treatment soon. Then of course my hair mask.

What emotional struggles, if any, have you faced since going natural?
Well initially, shrinkage was annoying, now i live with it.

Do you think you are in it for the long haul or is it just a phase?
Most definitely for the long haul. Don't ever intend to relax my hair.

There are people that definitely have negative comments about you hair, how do you deal with that?
I honestly don't have negative comments, what annoys me though is the  " is this your hair " question.

What's your must have product and accessory?
Leave-in conditioner and my satin bonnets and scarfs.

What is your go-to style?
Braid outs.

What advice do you have for anyone just going natural?
Patience, hair always grows, just appreciate your growth process.
