Natural Beauty of the Week – 3/2/2011

By:  NaturaLeah On:  March 03, 2011 0 Comments

This week, we celebrate the natural beauty of Melissa Creary!

Read below to find out more about this week’s Natural Beauty of the Week…

Thanks for joining us today, Melissa.  Can you tell our readers a little bit about yourself, like where you’re from and how long you’ve been natural?

Sure!  I’m a scientist and PhD student who loves taking pictures in my free time.  I’m from Atlanta, Georgia and I’ve been natural for about 2 and a half years.

Great!  So, you’re a photographer?  Do you have a website where people can see some of your work?

I sure do.  Just go to my photography blog to see a few of my pics.

We visited your site and you’ve got some great shots.  Congrats!  So, do you have any favorite hair products that you’ve been using lately?

My favorites these days are Jane Carter Shampoo and Conditioner, Kinky Curly Knot Today as a leave-in conditioner, and DevaCurl One Conditioner.

Awesome!  Well, we see your hair is well-conditioned :-)  Do you have any advice for the ladies out there who are transitioning or considering going natural?

Going natural was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.  It’s versatility at its best!  The road may be long and frustrating (and maybe even weight gaining-I didn’t work out too much during the transition), but it’s worth it.  Don’t go it alone:  find an expert in the transition and surround yourself with supportive folks to help cheer you on!

That’s definitely great advice, Melissa.  You look great!  Congratulations on being our newest Natural Beauty of the Week!
