Natural’s Spotlight: Todernesia


1. Tell me about yourself
I am a mother and I live in Columbus GA and I am a member of the best sorority Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. We are celebrating 100 years!!!

2. How long have you been natural?
I just did my big chop, so I’ve been completely natural for one week lol.

3. Did you transition or Big Chop?
I transitioned for 23 months. I was able to transition by wearing weaves, braids, and kinky twist. I refused to deal with my two textures,so keeping it covered and protected worked for me. I decided transitioned after being burned by relaxers and having under processed hair. Too much money to keep wasting.

4. What is your biggest hair challenge? How did you overcome your challenge?
My biggest hair challenge was making sure my natural and relaxed hair did not break off at the line of demarcation. I wanted to be able to cut my relaxed end off when I was ready and not because of breakage. I was able to defy breakage by making sure I kept my hair moisturized, deep conditioned, and not use too much heat.

5. What is your hair regimen?
I’m still developing my regimen but I wash my hair every two weeks unless I have a lot if product buildup. I deep condition at least once a month.Using a leave in conditioner is a must. I always use oils and butters to keep my hair soft and manageable. During the summer, I only co-wash and that seems to work. The humidity in GA is something serious, so my hair soaks up everything.

6. What is your favorite style?
My favorite style is a twist out. I’m having fun creating new styles. I’m having fun learning about my hair likes and dislikes.

7. What is your fashion style like?
My fashion is quick, easy and comfortable. I have a 9 month daughter who is crawling and into everything. I am also a teacher, so I have to be quick on my feet. I love dress up jeans and blazers. Jeans are a life savior.

8. Where can we find you on line? What else would you like to add?
I’m on IG@16paradise and FB @todernesiaford. I would love to have you follow me as I embrace my natural journey.
