Can you tell us a bit about yourself, what do you do and where are you from?
My name is Shakira Nabakooza am originally from uganda but live in the UK. Am the former Miss Uganda UK 2011-2012 and am a professional model.

Have you ever relaxed you hair?
No I have never.

When did you go natural and why did you go natural?
I have had natural hair since I was a child and have never felt the need to relax it.

Most African girls say that maintaining natural hair is hard, do you agree?
Yes it is hard to maintain natural hair but if we girls can spend so much money on make up to look good why wouldn’t you spend any amount of money to have good looking hair.

What products do you use to maintain your hair?
I really don’t use a lot of things on my hair apart from Indian hemp plus I condition it every once in a while and always make sure I plait it before I go to bed and tie something on the hair, so it doesn’t get spoiled, because if  you don’t tie it,  before you go to bed and you do a lot of moving in the night, the hair will get messy.

Which advice do you have for girls that want to go natural?
I would give them a go ahead because we as Africans we need to go back to our heritage and not be corrupted by the western society
And all these celebrities we see on tv or admire.

    YES, I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: INDIAN HERBS are the answer… It works TRUST ME… But of course, one needs to be patient as well, it doesn’t work over night 🙂

    Indian Herbs can be bought here in DK.. Many of the the foreign shops around Vesterbro (specifically one on Vesterbrogade, where I bought my own shampoo- and conditioner powders) owned by indians and/or pakistanis have them.
