Holland - Astrid is a Life coach From Hoofddorp Holland. She is 46 Years old and has been natural since the 90's. Astrid used to wear her hair in braids and weaves until last year when she met the love of her life, an English man, who's name is Edrissa. Edrissa just loved Astrid's hair in its pure natural form without the braids, so Astrid started to wear her own hair out more often.
Astrid always styles her own hair. When she first went Natural, people used to asked her why she didn't perm her hair, and some of them looked at her funny, but she didn't care. Astrid is very proud of her natural hair. Astrid and her Edrissa are in a long distance relationship between Holland and England. Whenever she is in England she is shopping for the hair products that are not available in Holland. Astrid says she loves seeing so many black sisters wearing there natural hair out, especially the younger ladies that are becoming aware that they are beautiful just the way the are.
