This will be the pioneer post on my Fro friend series and I am very excited as I will be featuring people with natural hair who have been doing something right so we can learn from their hair journeys. It will also promote their fields so we can check them out and see what they are doing and what is awesome about them!
I would be kicking off this Tessie Samaila who is a natural hair girl I met on Instagram and found to be lovely!

Why did you turn natural? There is no special reason, when I started making my hair my mum said don’t relax your hair yet and it has been like that since then.
What is your favorite thing about hair? The fact that it actually makes me prettier.
What is your least favorite thing about hair? Well I will say the stress of having to make it look neat everyday is really time taking and annoying.
What is your hair goal? Moisture, Length or Volume? Well it would be volume and length. Have you seen Ty Bello’s hair? Well, exactly like that.
What three hair products or tools can’t you do without in a week? My hair cream from Chebe hair products, Shea butter and probably a leave on hair conditioner.

How do you deal with the urge to compare your hair with others? Telling myself that would the right steps I will get there.
Have you ever been segregated or treated negatively because of your hair? Yes a lot especially in saloons when I go to wash or make my hair there is always this segregation of your hair is natural you have to pay more and am like really so it is a crime to keep a natural hair.
