Introduce yourself, what do you do?
My name is Zenita Collie aka TruleyTalentedBeauty and I am a digital content creator. I originally went to school to study accounting but in my junior year of college I fell in love with digital marketing and content creation. My goal is to act as a medium between education and entertainment within the beauty industry. Eventually I hope to play a role in global campaigns and really make a dent in the beauty industry as a whole.
What’s the favourite thing you love about the work that you do?
The most rewarding part is being able to inspire people to embrace their own kind of beauty.
Are you natural or relaxed? (is that your natural hair colour and texture)
I’m 100 % natural in texture and in hair color.
What are your go to products?
Honestly, it depends on the style i’m going for but I always have to have some Shine N Jam with me, a bottle of blended oils ( Jojoba, vitamin e , argan, etc) and TGIN Butter Cream Daily Moisturizer. I recently did a YouTube video on my product stash which breaks down all my staple products and tools by category!
What is your all time favourite hairstyle?
I love a good high puff! It screams volume without having to have my hair in my face.
What are your 3 top hair care tips?
- Less it more : My hair does better when I don’t touch it. You don’t have to consistently have your fingers in your head for it to grow and be healthy.
- Don’t compare : Hair isn’t one size fits all and that’s ok! Comparing your hair journey with someone else’s isn’t going to change what’s on your own head. Do whatever works best for you.
- Moisturize your scalp! : I get asked all the time about hair growth and my answer is always the same.. moisturize the scalp. It’s the part that contributes the most to hair growth yet it’s typically the most neglected.
Do you have a hair routine?
I’m a styling natural so most of the time I switch up my look every 2-4 weeks. The only thing I do consistently is give my hair a time out before I switch to my next style. I like to just leave it in my “romeo” braids and let it chill out before the next wash day.
Describe yourself in five words? Talented, Creative, Caring, Curious, & Goofy.
What helps give you inspiration/motivation?
People, people give me inspiration. Especially my close friends/family and people I admire. Sometimes I feel like there’s no way for me to achieve a certain goal or move forward. Then I’ll see someone experiencing similar doubts push through their circumstances and it gives me a bit more hope and drive to push through whatever I’m going through.
What are the top 3 things on your bucket list?
-To be featured in a huge Campaign.
– To open and create my own cosmetology institution.
– To work with Rihanna.
