FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

What camera do you use?

I use the Canon Rebel T5 with a 18-55mm & 50mm lens for most of my blog photos. For vlogs and YouTube videos, I use the Sony Alpha a5000.

What programs do you use to edit your videos and photos?

I use Final Cut Pro to edit videos. For photo editing, I use Photoshop in the Adobe Creative Cloud.

How would you describe your hair type/curl pattern?

I consider myself a mix of the 4's. I have a little bit of 4A, 4B, and 4C.

Your go-to natural hair brand?

Camille Rose Naturals is my go-to brand right now! Seriously, it's the one product line that works perfectly on my hair every single time I use it.

What advice would you give a new blogger?

  1. Do not start a blog for free products or Internet fame. Start a blog because you have passion for what you're talking about.

  2. Success does not happen overnight. Every influencer I know who has been super successful has worked very hard for several years. Opportunities are not handed to you or spoon-fed. Be ready to work and be a girl boss!

  3. Always be authentic. The followers you gain and brands alike can sense when you're not being authentic or are simply doing it for the money. Be honest in your reviews and when you begin to partner with brands.
