Shondell Babb, Certified, Natural Hair Consultant (CNHC)
I have been part of the global, Natural Hair Movement since 2004. But, living in Winnipeg, MB, I struggled to find the right hair products as there were no options for managing and styling Black, super coily, natural hair at the time. I decided back then I was done with the ‘creamy crack’ (relaxer) when I found out how harmful it was to my body. Online shopping wasn't as advanced as it is now, so I spent $100s of dollars trying to care for my hair with mediocre results. I gave up and chose to wear protective styles of braids and twists for years.
I have thick, very densely packed hair that has a 4-C Type curl pattern. This means my curls are the same size as the spring inside a ballpoint pen. I realized that I needed to educate myself about my hair and the products it needed. I educated myself about curly hair science, product ingredients and why having a hair routine is necessary for managing curly hair. I have been a Certified, Naturally Curly Hair Consultant since 2018.
Because of my challenges with managing my own curly hair, I fully understand what you or your child have been going through. I am passionate about helping women, men and children of all ethnicities and hair types that have waves, curls, kinks and coils to embrace their natural hair.
