Natural-ness in: Mississippi

Sometimes I receive really good submissions, but the sender does not attach pictures for whatever reason.  I received the submission below a few weeks ago and I’ve been waiting for pictures, but have not heard back.  I really like her answers, so I decided to post it anyway.  I did not to add her name, in case she changed her mind about being featured. Please check out Miss C’s replies below from the Magnolia State. (Note: If this is your submission, it’s not too late to add your name and pictures)

Name:
Miss C

What state are you representing?
Mississippi

How long have you been natural?
10 years

What’s the natural scene like in your area?
I’m starting to see alot more natural sistas here than I use to see
when I first went natural. But I noticed that for alot of them, being
natural is just a phase here in Jackson. I would like to see more
women wearing natural hair longer periods of time or better yet
FOREVER 🙂

Additional comments regarding your natural hair:
I have worn my hair in a big afro thru out the years, but my favorite
style has been a twa. Right now im wearing a twa, but I miss my afro,
so im growing it back out, hopefully permanently this time.

I am thrilled to present Shaughnessy representing the  Magnolia State.  I believe that she is the first person that we’ve featured that started out with locs, successfully removed the locs and is now sporting her loose hair.  Yes ladies, it can be done!  She sent in both loc’d and loose pictures and she’s beautiful either way! Check her out:

I rocked locs for 7.5 years and I picked them out last November (took
6 weeks). Now I’m learning to care for my loose hair and I’m really
enjoying it.
