Hey Queens, I’m sure you may be wondering who I am – so let me tell you. If you haven’t already figured it out my name is Patrina and I’m a natural Queen like yourself.
I have been natural for 11 years now. I started with my hair with earlobe length hair, and now my hair is waist length. My journey didn’t start out in the natural hair world, I’m actually a classically trained Public Health researcher. With my time in my profession, I worked with top Universities and government officials and decided to turn a new page in my book called life after the last administration ended.
11 years ago, I was fed up with my brittle and dry hair so I began to explore how to take care of my hair better. I was tired of wearing weaves and hair pieces. While on my quest to healthier hair, I came across a whole community of naturals who had long healthy hair. As I studied their healthy hair practices, and the products they were using I started to notice my hair was finally growing and thriving like never before.
Fast forward to present day, once I started to read and research more on the ingredients companies use in their hair care products that are geared towards African American women and children I was appalled at what I found. So I started to make my own hair care products. The first product was whipped shea butter now called Butta Butta Cream. I knew I needed to find all-natural pure ingredients. Once I found the right mixture of ingredients my hair became moisturized, fuller, and longer than I ever thought it could. So I know for a fact it’s due to switching out store brought products for my own. Click here to buy Butta Butta Cream
I am a person who finds great comfort in serving others who are in need whether it be within the academic world or within my own community. Since starting Natural Hair Queen I have read and listened to so many of my readers who struggle with dry, brittle, and short hair.
There are many different reasons as to why the knowledge is not there, but many times, it’s because they were never taught the proper way to care for their hair as this is my main reason too. It is my hope that my website and products start to help and inform women of their own hair.
