Black Women With Style: Debra of Star Five Pieces

What made you decide to go natural, and how long have you been natural?

 My main inspiration was my daughter. She is 10 years old with a head full of gorgeous thick curls and I don't want her to ever feel that what we are born with isn't good enough. Another reason was the desire to have a healthier hair regimen and healthier scalp. Since I have gone natural, I find it easier to style my hair than when I had a relaxer all those years!

               What are you favorite products to recommend/use

My favorite products are Hick's Total Transformations Edges, the Taliah Waajid product line, sweet almond oil and coconut oil.

               How does natural hair fit into your personal style?
 I have so many favorite styles. I change my hair often at times. But if I have to choose, I would say a well-defined twist out. Although, my husband's favorite style that I wear is a simple bun. Natural hair fits perfectly into my personal style because it's really a part of my true self.. 

                 What is your definition of personal style?
I define personal style as something that truly cannot be defined. Personal style is an individual art. It can be influenced by lifestyle, careers, family, beliefs, etc. It's not just about fashion. Personal style has to mean something.

                Where else can we find you on the web?
