Sarone, Kemi and Ammy

At the Balistiq launch party, I had the pleasure of meeting these three lovely ladies. This group of friends highlight the beautiful diversity in texture and curl patterns natural hair has to offer. Slap em’ on a billboard and sales in relaxers would plummet, is all I’m sayin! Read each of their individual hair bio’s below.

As you are from an African background, did you find it easy to tell your family you were going natural? 

‘They weren’t too happy when I told them, but after I cut it there wasn’t much they could say or do. Overall they were supportive, as all my family have natural hair so it was normal for them.’
