Dominique Cherry, Communications Major

KODI Designs William 'Cody' Dagen IV, HBN Contributor from Chicago (Photographer/Videographer) interviews UIC Student Dominique Cherry

I’m a Communications major (University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana). I’ve been natural for two and a half years now. I can definitely say that my natural hair journey has been a process in the making. I’m still learning new things about my hair everyday. As a Chicago gal, it can be pretty challenging for me to manage my hair since there could literally be four seasons in a day! I usually rock an Afro puff with a decorative head scarf and a pair of gaudy earrings as my go-to style.

My ultimate goal is to really learn the chemistry of my natural hair. I continually deep condition my hair and use the two-strand twist method for sealing moisture before I go to bed at night. I’m always looking forward to using new products while keeping a simple hair regimen. I truly enjoy the versatility and the freedom of being a natural.

Outside of being a natural, I aspire to pursue a career within the art industry and media relations. My hobbies include painting, photography, videography, reading and being a complete movie buff.
