NS: What is your natural hair story?
Sheena: I have been natural since around 2003 off and on. The first time I did the big chop. I have cut all my perm off 3 times now.
NS: Really! How did that happen?
Sheena: The first time I was just tired off the perm and ready to be natural. The next time I cut it was after my other best friends wedding. She wanted everyone in her wedding to have a straight hairstyle. The last time I cut it off was for Sisterlocks.
NS: Wow! You are a really good friend. What advice would you have to womyn considering the big chop or going natural?
Sheena: Just do it! It's better and free.
NS: How did you feel when you got rid of all your hair and how did you do it?
Sheena: Well the first and second time, I used clippers. The second time is was real short almost bald. There was nothing to hide behind. At first I really didn't like it, but it was me and I got used to it. The last time, I just cut it into a short afro to start Sisterlocks.
NS: How did your family react? How about men?
Sheena: The only person that had a negative reaction is one of my close friends. At first I felt boyish, but men still were interested. My family didn't react either way.NS: Your hair looks fabulous. Julia did a great job.
