Kadian: I have being natural since January 2013. I went natural because I have eczema which caused severe burning when I got my hair relaxed and also because of my fitness journey. I work out four days per week and my TWA just blends well with working out.
KiK: How did you go from relaxed to natural?
Kadian: I did a big chop.

I deep condition my hair weekly with Shea Moisture restorative Conditioner, Shea moisture Balancing conditioner ,olive oil and sometimes coconut oil.
