I am Whitney Madueke. I am 19 years. I live in Lagos,Nigeria. I am currently an undergraduate law student at the University of Reading, England.
My last relaxer was on the 20th of June,2012. I transitioned for months before deciding to go natural, as my hair kept tangling and breaking. The cold weather was not helpful. On the 13th of march,2013. It was a bright sunny day, after reaching the peak of frustration with my hair, I decided to have the big chop.
Boy, was it scary. As my sister chopped off hair, my smile was turning into a frown. I thought I had made a big mistake, as I only had one inch of new growth. The encouraging words of my friend “You look pretty”, helped boost my confidence. I told myself, I was beautiful at every glance at the mirror. Truly, my confidence grew tremendously.
On 1st of June, months later, it inspired me to start my vlog and blog – Leazz Way, on natural hair, style and beauty. It has helped inspire others, to embrace the beauty that is their hair in all its diversity. I am a 4c girl, with low porosity hair, high levels of shrinkage. I love it, nothing like it. I enjoy my wash days, when I use products like: V05 conditioner and/or shampoo, Castor Oil, Indian Hemp and my Shea Butter Leave-in Conditioner. I use the Shea Moisture deep treatment masque more during harsh weathers. I wash my hair every 2 days, in between I usually drench my hair in water. Its more manageable for me. I have a diary of my hair routine, which helps me maintain my hair even more.
My hair is me and I enjoy me.
