Natural Hair Meetup Day with Jiquay Glenn

Welcome back ladies and beaus! Checkout my interview with Jiquay Glenn, Jiquay Glenn also known as Naturally Authentic, and Co-founder of Hub City Naturals.

Jiquay Glenn, Naturally Authentic Co-founder of Hub City Naturals

Well, I created the first natural hair community meetup to Jackson, TN. I host the International Natural Hair Meetup Day. I wanted to discuss better products, services, and education. I planned my meetups to address the whole person, mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and physically. I never wanted anyone who decided to go natural to feel alone and frustrated. I started a blog naturally-authentic.com

international natural hair meetup day

I transitioned to being a curly natural in 2011 after being off the creamy crack for 5 years. I had always wondered how some girls could wear their own hair in a big curly fro. I knew that when my hair was wet it was very curly but when it dried it didn’t look that way. When I asked, I was told that only mixed girls hair was curly.

natural hair journey

The first link I saw was Tanika Ray’s Hair Journey on curlynikki.com.” I was opened to a whole new world!!! I had no idea that this world existed!! I saw so many different women who looked like me rocking the big curly hair. I was so freaking stoked!! I read for hours and hours until my eyes were burning, only to wake up and start it all over again the next night. Oh, and when I discovered the natural hair community on YouTube…that. was. all. she. wrote. I immediately announced to everyone, I’m going natural. Thus my natural hair journey began.

I asked Jiquay what she thought about the future of natural hair. Honestly, I don’t think of natural hair in that manner because most of us don’t see natural hair as a fad. It is simply just being ourselves, how we were born.
How have you retained hair length? I educated myself about paying attention to my hair for its behavior. The book, The Science of Black Hair has been a key thing for my process. Also, when I have an issue that I just can’t seem to understand I will watch YouTube videos to get some inspiration. The most important thing is creating a consistent regimen balancing between moisture and protein, especially since I have hypothyroidism, pcos, and anemia which can weaken your hair and cause major thinning. I changed my diet, take supplements, and drink lots of water…mostly.

What is your hair regimen? Ah, what a lengthy answer lol. When I am on point, I wash my hair every other week with a cleansing conditioner that has mild surfactants. Shampoo 1x a month. I use a protein treatment 1x every 2-3 months as needed. I deep condition every time I wash my hair. I make sure all of my products are all natural and focus on moisture. That works best for me.

Are you a part of a natural hair brand. Yes, I am a brand Ambassador for FCA Naturals.

natural hair meetup day with Jiquay Glenn

Why was it started, and how have you encouraged other women to become natural?

FCA Naturals was started by April Mckisick in Forest City, Arkansas. It began as a quest to find an all-natural healer for her grandmother to rub on her aching joints. During that time she and her friend Samantha began their journey to natural hair and decided to create all natural products to match their healthy lifestyles that weren’t so expensive. Thus FCA Naturals was born!
I’ve encouraged other women to become natural simply by being available to answer questions and taking the time to assist them on their journeys. In 2015 I began offering consultations to help women create natural hair regimens according to their individual hair needs.

What products do you use?

Some of my staples are FCA Naturals Citrus Wonder line. I am in love the FCA Naturals Wonder Essence Oil and the Chocolate Butter is Bae! I love Belnouvo’s Avocado and Shea Hair Milk, Camille Rose Naturals Aloe Whip Gel, and Curls Blueberry Bliss Gel. These are just a few but I have an extensive list of my favs on naturally-authentic.com.

What is your advice for retention for natural hair? Educate yourself of natural hair. Listen to your hair and pay attention to your diet. Intuition is a key point to taking care of your hair and body. What advice can you give to those who are transitioning to the natural movement?

Lose any thoughts of comparison and what you think your natural hair should look like and how it should behave. Be present to what it is and enjoy the journey. Your hair can teach you so much about yourself if you just pay attention.

What is Your Natural Hair Length / Height Goal 2017?

Welcome back ladies and beaus, I hope you brought the New Year in with much bliss and happiness. Often times we make New Year’s Resolutions to lose weight, eat healthier, and new year/new goals. We all desire to have a better year than the last. My resolution this year is to retain a healthy length of hair. On Instagram, I posted a picture of a short cut. I thought about going short, but I my year off with a box braided bob.

box braided natural hairstyle bob vs long hair What do you choose, Cut or Low Maintenance Hairstyles?

What are your expectations for your hair this year? I would love for my hair to widen in length. I want to be able to rock my hair from its natural state. I will watch to see if my hair widens with my height.

natural hair goal 2017

Many individuals in the hair community have the length hair t-shirts. What will your regimen be for these expectations? I have new products coming to me really soon.

true natural hair care products set

What is your #hairlengthgoal? I actually just want my hair to grow it’s genetically length way, if that means anything. I want my hair to be the healthiest I can be. I cannot wait to see how this low maintenance hairstyle does with my hair. I will make sure to clean my scalp and keep it hydrated. An itchy and dry scalp will not help in the process of retaining length. If your scalp is dry, it does not have enough moisture to grow to the end. At the end of the year, we will look at my hair for width in length. WISH ME WELL, AND WITH LONGEVITY FOR MY TWIGS!

Where is Natural Hair going to? I will be interviewing Jiquay Glenn, who brings a Hair Expo to Jackson, TN a place where I grew up. I also plan to attend to see what I can learn from other naturalists. Natural hair is a movement not a? Where is natural hair and products going economically and societal. What is the future of natural hair? We build this identity every day for women to have their own state of naturalism. Granted, it is a process of patience, but the love your grow from yourself and hair is the best feeling. A feeling of togetherness of what you say and do to your hair. Hairs to the New Year, Let’s get going!
