Natural Hair Queen Of The Week: Leidy

Hello ladies and welcome back to our weekly edition of “Share Your Natural Hair Journey“! For week number two of this segment, I am happy to introduce you the beautiful Leidy Rodriguez! When I first started my instagram account to document my hair journey, Leidy was one of the first people I connected with. I quickly realized her story was worth telling after getting to know her through her pictures and videos so I sent her an invite to participate. Just like Chloe: our first feature, I had the pleasure to ask Leidy a few question about her natural hair journey, and she was kind enough to share with us her story on going natural. By sharing with you  these ladies journeys, my hope is that you can find inspiration to keep you going or even start your own journey. So grab your coffee, kick back, relax and enjoy! Don’t forget to ask your questions…
