What would be your advice for someone transitioning from relaxed to natural hair for the very first time?
Transitioning is a personal process and you can do whatever suits you best so don’t get caught up in trying to “do it right”! If you want to big chop, big chop, if you want to wear protective styles, wear protective styles. You choose your journey. When I transitioned in college, headwraps were a great help for me. Being new to natural hair, some of my styles did not come out quite right, on days like those, headwraps saved my look!
What role does your brand play in the broader Natural Hair community?
Cee Cee’s Closet NYC celebrates the beauty and diversity of black women. We create our wraps with the purpose of empowering our customers to see the beauty in themselves and their heritage while also expressing their creativity. Much like your natural hair, your wrap is a canvas and you can create any look that makes you feel beautiful and confident.
How does your brand embody CurlyInCollege’s mission of “Embrace who you are, not who others want you to be?”
At Cee Cee’s Closet NYC we view headwraps as a form of self-expression. It’s all about you and what makes you regal. Any way you style them is the right way to style it!
What advice do you have for college students who may feel challenged on their natural hair journey?
Your hair is an expression of who you are but it can be a lot some days. Do what suits you and the time you have available. It’s OK to give yourself grace throughout your journey.
