FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

What camera do you use?

I use the Canon 80D with a 18-55mm & 50mm lens for my blog photos and YouTube videos.

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

I use Final Cut Pro to edit videos. For photo editing, I use Lightroom 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?

Currently, I'm loving Berry Curly's new natural hair brand, Creole Belle Organics. I have been using the products for over one month and have achieved stellar results each and every time with zero flakes. Bless up!

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.
