Hey my name is Tanika. I am a content creator. I create content around natural hair and lifestyle. My social media name is Missybeelondon

What’s the favourite thing you love about the work that you do?
I love sharing my hair knowledge and inspiring others who have similar hair to me.
To embrace their natural hair too.
Are you natural or relaxed? (is that your natural hair colour and texture)
I am Natural, I have been natural for a very long time. My hair colour is Black. I have short type 4 hair.
What are your go to products?
Well what you must do as a natural is deep conditioner your hair regular.
I deep condition my hair with heat because I have low porosity hair.
My favourite deep conditioners are Shea Moisture Jamaican black castor oil strengthen and restore treatment masque and Asiam hydration elation intensive conditioner.
A good hair moisturiser is needed, I am using ORS olive oil hairdress, and it keeps my hair moisturised for days.
What is your all time favourite hairstyle?
My go to hairstyles are twists, twistouts.
And for lazy days headwraps, afro puff or clipins or a wig.
What are your 3 top hair care tips?
Alway detangle your hair when damp, to reduce breaking
Deep condition your hair at least 2 times a month
Sleep with a satin hair bonnet on your head
Do you have a hair routine?
I don’t have a proper hair routine, but every hair wash day I deep condition my hair with heat, and spend a good amount of time massaging my scalp and just quality time needed to wash my hair on wash days.
And moisturising hair regular in between wash days, having my hair in low manipulation styles.
Describe yourself in five words?
I would describe myself as a problem-solver, independent, unique, creative, and funny.
What helps give you inspiration/motivation?
I get inspired by my fellow naturals not just in the UK but all over the world, how they create hairstyles and hair content.
I follow many on Instagram and YouTube
What are the top 3 things on your bucket list?
- Visit America
- To interview a superstar
- To win the Lottery 🙂
What made you laugh this week?
Judi Love @1judilove Instagram live nights called Quarantine dating, some of the things people say when they join in on her live made me laugh and shocked too.
Basically it like online dating, Judi adds people to her Instagram live, they tell her what they are looking for, and if people are interested in that person they DM those people. It’s like a new 2020 dating service in Lockdown, while we are all going through this pandemic self-isolating at home for our safety.
