TLDR: I am not an “influencer” or YouTuber, but I will continue to film if you all promise me something...
They asked me the absolute DUMBEST questions on the pink carpet. “What is a makeup product a girl should never live without” - “what would be a funny beauty trend”. These interviews will probably never see the light of day because I made this face —> 🤮 on camera. •
I just couldn’t take the press seriously. Going down the line, I felt more & more disappointed by the dumb questions....
I reached the very end of the line & spoke to a magazine ran by WOC. They asked me about my bio #RepresentationMatters, changing the beauty industry narrative, turning our flaws into our most beautiful traits. •
I felt alive again. Now that’s what I’m here for 👏🏽 Let’s talk about issues that matter. I want to publicly state that I am not an “influencer”. I have only promoted two brands - @DevaCurl & @TropicIsleLiving. Why? Because it’s all I have been using for the past 3+ years. I have no hidden agenda & only have shared the truth with y’all. I *try* new products now & then just because they are mailed to me, but I have never promoted them on my feed. Haven’t you noticed?! They didn’t work for me so why try to influence you to buy them? 😶
YouTube is not my job - not yet. The 6 videos I have uploaded are about hair. But life is not about ~only~ having a good hair day - it’s about what you do while having a good hair day. •
My life significantly improved once my hair wasn’t an issue. It gave me the confidence to go out there & become a community organizer, to engage with government officials, to run a small business. Surprisingly, I couldn’t do any of those things effectively without my curls acting right 😅 so I will continue to film tutorials if only y’all promise me something; •
Once you achieve your dream hair, please go out there and do something meaningful. I will only feel motivated to share my techniques knowing that the people watching are going to make positive changes in the world 🤷🏽♀️ That sounds so corny & I hate myself a lil bit rn, but I am dead serious. Virtually pinky promise me & you shall receive more hair videos ⬇️ 👀 #losangeles #beautyconla
