My name is Chime Edwards and I’m from a small, quaint town called West Point, MS.
2. How long have you been natural?
I have been natural for 3 years and 3 months. I big chopped in February 2009! Time has flown!
3. What do you do? Is there a resistance or compatibility with your hair in your field of work?
I am an Independent Living Specialist for a nonprofit organization, Southern Christian Services. I teach a class daily that prepares youth who are in foster care to live independently. The “dress code” is business casual so I don’t stress too much about how I wear my hair since the work environment is pretty laid back. I just don’t wear my hair too wild (ya know, roll out of bed, fluff hair and out the door) to work but everything else I rock.
4. Describe your hair.
My hair is massive. It’s soft. Wild. Free. It does its own thing like me.
5. What is your regimen?
I wash my hair with conditioner every 2 weeks. I use shampoo when needed. Sometimes I may use shampoo every 2 months and sometimes I use it back to back. It all depends on how dirty my hair is. I deep condition my hair every time that I wash it. I apply coconut oil to my hair (focusing on my ends) daily.
6. What is your best hair advice?
Find the greatness and beauty in your hair. Love what’s yours. Don’t be envious of someone else’s tresses.
7. What is the strangest comment, request or hair story?
lol I don’t know where to start! A girl commented on one of my videos and said that I was kinda scary because I reminded her of a cult leader because my hair was so long! lol I received another comment on YT from a lady who told me that she knew I had hair growth secrets and if I didn’t share them my hair would fall out! lol I could really go on forever!
8. How would you describe your personal fashion style?
A melting pot lol I don’t like to look the same all the time. One day I may want to rock a preppy look…the next Bohemian look…the day after, a snap back cap and a tank. I like to change it up. I do lean more towards tribal prints and the Boho look but I love all styles.
