1. Tell us your name and where you are from?
My name is Carolynn but I go by TheHeartfeltHoney within the natural hair community (youtube/twitter)
2. How long have you been natural?
I got my last relaxer in the fall of 2005. I cut all my relaxed ends off in 2007 so I count from there and say 5 years!
3. What do you do? Is there a resistance or compatibility with your hair in your field of work?
I work as an Administrative Assistant and I have to say when I first started, I was a little worried about how my hair would be recieved but I was pleasantly surprised. I get loads of compliments on my hair and there are lots of natural women here. We even had a small natural hair meet up to exchange information
4. Describe your hair.
My hair is a kinky coily blessing from God! lol jk But seriously my hair is kinky and I love it!
It depends on how I’m rocking it. Right now I am rocking what I’m calling “Big Twist
.” I clarify them weekly and seal with grape seed oil. I moisturize my scalp with Jamaican black castor oil spritz with my homemade serum.
When my hair is loose I primarily wear braid outs and co-wash with tresume naturals conditioner. I braid my hair in about 12 sections using my homemade whipped shea or whipped mango butter. I moisturize my scalp with Jamaican black castor oil and spritz my ends as needed with my homemade serum.
6. What is your best hair advice?
Do what works for you! Get to know your hair outside of what the trends and gurus are saying and respond accordingly.
7. What is the strangest comment, request or hair story?
Somebody once asked me did I get caught in the rain lol I just laughed.
8. How would you describe your personal fashion style?
I am the ultimate jeans and t-shirt kind of girl. My favorite outfit is a spaghetti strap shirt and jeans. I also like harem pants but I digress… When it is time to go out, I will throw on a dress because its nice and easy. I’m very laid back and will dress up anything with a few accessories. I keep it pretty simple.
9. Do you have a blog/website?
Yes, check out my blog HoneyCee.Blogspot.com
I cover a host of topics there including book reviews, vegetarian food, recipes and daily affirmations. Oh! and I love music which is very evident with my “Song of the Day” posts. I’m also on you-tube:TheHeartfeltHoney
10. What makes you a bush babe?
I’m the child of a B-more mother and Brooklyn father you don’t get more urban than that! lol Plus I’m inspired by city life. I believe some of the most beautiful and authentic things are created here. We really know how to turn nothing into something.
