Style Diary: Gemtrendsetter



I decided to grow my hair out 2 1/2 years ago out of boredom mainly, but also because my hair could never grow pass a certain length.  I transitioned for almost 4 months and did a self big chop, cutting off 10 inches of relaxed ends.  Since my BC, I have enjoyed my hair at every length while learning to do many different styles.  Natural hair has been very satisfying for my hair A.D.D. that’s for sure! I would describe my texture as kinky, tightly coiled (the size of mini cork screws), densely thick and soft like cotton.  

I document my journey and styles on my Youtube channel @Iamsonotmyhair,  post photos frequently on Instagram @Gemtrendsetter and sell tee shirt designs at! Come check me out!

    This is really encouraging! I’ve been working on my hair for 6 months and though it’s much healthier I haven’t seen much growth. Your hair seemed that way in the beginning too but then it grew a ton in just 2 years.

    Oh man! Didn’t know you interviewed her! I love her channel. She was one of the first people I followed when transitioning ’cause we were both transitioning at the same time. Love her creativity. Thumbs up!
