Natural Beauty of the Week – 1/26/2011

By:  NaturaLeah On:  January 25, 2011 2 Comments

This week we celebrate the natural beauty of Miss Kenya Thomas, our Living No Lye Natural Beauty of the Week!

Keep reading to find out more about Kenya and why she decided to go natural.

Hi, Kenya.  Thanks for joining us today.  Can you tell all the lovely ladies and gentlemen out there where you’re from and where you’re living now?

I was born and raised in New York.  Then, I moved to Valdosta, GA when I was 13, and I’ve lived in Atlanta since April 2010.

Cool.  Your hair is looks great.  Have you always had natural hair?

No I haven’t.  I’ve been natural a little bit less than 2 years now. I had always wore it long, and with bunches of colors until I signed with my first talent agency.  It was agreed that me having my hair natural would be most marketable.

It’s refreshing to hear that they recognized that natural beauty is “marketable.”  So do you have any must-have products?

To be honest, I don’t really have a favorite product.  I’m not really a label brat, I just kind of use what does the job.  Although I definitely make sure to stay clear from any product with the usage of petroleum and fragrance in it’s ingredients.

Sounds good.  It’s so important to know what works for your hair and what doesn’t.  Well, before we go, is there anything that you have to say to the men and women out there?

Yes! Love your natural hair! African Americans are the ONLY race that can grow our hair in a texture like such!  Don’t destroy your identity because you don’t feel good enough.  That doesn’t mean you can’t wear weaves, wigs, and extensions, that just means you shouldn’t ignore what God gave us!  Don’t forget there’s only ONE you – And nobody can compete with that!

Great advice, Kenya!  And great pics, by the way!  For more information on Kenya, visit her website: Wix.com/Kenya_C/Thomas

    Ran into this Natural Beauty at Firestone Auto Care in Atlanta. Not only does this girl maintain her lovely locks, but her car too! :) Nice meeting you Kenya!
