Natural Beauty of the Week – 12/1/2010!

By:  NaturaLeah On:  November 30, 2010 0 Comments

Meet our first Natural Beauty of the Week, Sharmelle Brooks!

This beauty is originally from Wisconsin, but has lived in the Atlanta area for nearly 3 years.  Take a look at what she had to say about living naturally.

How long have you been natural and how was your transitioning process?

I have been natural for nearly 11 months.  I cut my own hair on January 1, 2010 after 8 months of transitioning with sewn-ins and braids.

Tell the ladies what some of your favorite products are right now:

I have two favorite products. One is Shea Moisture’s Organic Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque.  I use this as a leave-in moisturizer, but it can also be used as a deep conditioner.  I also love Lush’s Revive and Balance (R&B) Hair Moisturizer.  These are the only two products I’ve used that moisturize my hair without leaving a greasy film.

What advice to you have to offer to ladies on their natural hair journey?

Be you!  Don’t let anyone make you feel that you have to look a certain way.  Create a look for others to follow you.

Her final words:

I’m living no lye….and saving money doing it.

Congratulations, Sharmelle Brooks, our first Natural Beauty of the Week!
