Virginia

What’s the natural scene like in your area?
In my area, I see naturals sprinkled here and there, but generally in
the DMV area natural hair is booming. I love seeing so many ladies and
gents embrace their natural beauty! =)

Additional comments regarding your natural hair:
I love my natural hair, and showing my friends and family that going
natural isn’t as hard as it seems. So many people think they can’t go
natural simply because of a lack of knowledge. So I’m here to share
all of my knowledge with my loved ones & anyone else who needs it.

Virginia is showing up and showing out this week!  I love it! Please welcome another beautiful lady from the Old Dominion state, Alison:


Name:
Alison

What state are you representing?
Virginia

How long have you been natural?
over 10 years

What’s the natural scene like in your area?
The natural scene is very strong here in the Northern VA/DC Area. As a
matter of fact, chics with the perms in this area are the ones that
get the “side eye” now. :)

Additional comments regarding your natural hair:
I love my natural hair. And I continue to encourage my friends and
family to go natural as well. Too many woman are using chemical
relaxers to straighten their hair, and little do they realize how much
damage it is doing to their manes.

Check out and welcome newly natural Alexia representing the Old Dominion state:

Name:
Alexis

What state are you representing?
Virginia

How long have you been natural?
4 months

What’s the natural scene like in your area? Additional comments regarding your natural hair:
I went natural 3-4 months ago. It was the best decision of my life. My mother started perming my hair when I was 4, so my whole life, up to the age of 19, was centered around perms, weaves, hot combs, and flat irons. I would plan my activities around my hair, no swimming or sweating when my hair was straightened. It was so stressful always worrying about “the frizz”. I’m from Alexandria, VA which is very close to Washington, DC. It feels good to see so many women rockin their teeny weeny afros with pride. Whenever I see a woman with her natural hair, it makes me further appreciate how beautiful us African American women are. The city of Washington, DC is “chocolate city” so you see a lot of African Americans embracing their roots rather than trying to hide and eventually damage.
