Interview With Natasha, A Recent "Big Chopper"

Good afternoon Natasha.  Thank you so much for agreeing to participate in this interview.  I'm truly excited to be doing this interview with you... let's get started!

For those that don't know you, please introduce yourself and tell us how long you have been natural.  My name is Natasha Moore, my maiden name is Weir...  I have been fully natural since my big chop on October 24, 2011, I transitioned for eight months to a year.

So, what made you want to transition then decide to do the big chop?  At first I was transitioning but I was so bored with wearing weaves all the time so I slowly just started to wear my hair... It had been so long since I have worn my actual hair with nothing extra added.  On October 24, 2011, I was having a conversation with you actually and I went in the bathroom and I just cut it... Very liberating!  (insert Kinky Kinetik's blushing here - LoL)

What products do you use on your natural hair?  Right now honestly I'm not using anything but Olive Oil and Eco Styler Gel.

What's your hair type?  I am type 4A.  OK, so we have the same hair type.  Just so you know, some natural belles may have two hair types... not sure if that's a gift or a curse... :-)

What's your favorite style to wear while your rocking your TWA?  I love, love, love all types of headbands.  I didn't realize a headband could make such a huge difference!  Yes, they can... I love headbands... some can be a bit pricey though...

What's your daily regimen?  I wash my hair now once every two weeks, I cowash every week. Since I live in Florida, I can get away with a wet and go.

In thinking of a celebrity, who is your hair inspiration idol?  Solonge Knowles... I love, love, love her natural hair!
What, if any, influence did Kinky Kinetik have on you 'going natural?'  Kinky Kinetik has been one of my biggest inspirations!  From your style to the different hair regimens that you have given once my hair gets to a certain length.  I really appreciate that Natasha!

Have you considered (and or will you) going back to a perm?  I haven't considered going back to getting my hair permed.  I am however having a weave itch, with which I can satisfy with wigs.  So I have been doing great.

What (and/or who) was it that also helped you make the decision to go natural?  My mom, Kera (Kinky) Kinetik, Solange Knowles, and Fusion of Culture.  These people all played a key roll in me going fully natural.

What, if any, advice and/or suggestions would you give to someone who is looking to transition or do a big chop, yet are reluctant?  The only advice I can give is do it when you're ready and when you are 100%.  Natural hair is a process and its requires a lot of patience and creativity.  Don't use other people's hair quality or hair type as a reason why you want to go natural, everyone's curl and form is completely different. Do it for you and no one else.  Go 'head Tasha!!  Right on!! 

Well thank you so very much Tasha.  I really appreciate your participating in this interview.  Just so you know, I too love Solange!  I love her edginess, her music and that she's not ashamed to be natural in the industry, where you're judged on darn near everything.

I'm glad that I was an inspiration for you Tasha, as I try to be for those who are and/or want to 'go natural.'  I'm sure that this interview will also help someone who may be wanting to transition or just go ahead and do their big chop!  You have definitely inspired me to keep doing what I'm doing and encouraging others to rock their natural hair!

Keep it kinky!!
