As we feature different Curly Queen every month, they will also be featured in our Monthly Magazine Insert. This July, let's welcome our JULY CURLY QUEEN, Amaya! Here's her Question and Answer and let's get to know more about her!

Name: Amaya Wright

What is your Social media handle? @alwaysamayaa

Why do you want to be the featured Queen and share your story?

I want to be the featured Queen to be able to tell all my curl friends that it's a hair journey for a reason not a walk or a stroll but a journey. Never give up on your hair, it's a wild

journey but it's worth it.

What is your go-to styling product?

My go - to styling product is NYM Curl Talk Gel

What does a “wash day” look like for you?

Wash day is an all day event I Pre-poo ,shampoo , condition, deep condition with heat then I style my hair.

How would you describe your "hair type"?

3A/ 3C. Spirally with a hint of kink.

What was it like growing up with your hair type?

Growing up with my hair type forced me to learn how to do my own hair early on. I would always go on YouTube and search new styles and even learned how to braid .

Growing up with my hair type I also got those questions like “ did you curl your hair to get it like that ?”. To this day I still get that question. Regardless I have always loved my hair .

What is the worst product that you have used in your hair and why?

The Mane Choice Exotic Cool Laid Shine Hair Oil is the worst product I’ve used. I love a good oil to scrunch out the cast and give me a little extra shine however this product did not do anything for me at all, no shine and did not break my cast . Safe to say it was a waste of money.

If you can tell anyone starting their journey health or hair, what would it be?

Embrace the curls. They come with their good days and their bad ones but never give up on them.

Message from the Queen

Cut off that damage girl I promise it is worth it and don’t forget to deep condition weekly. Enjoy your hair at every length..

"Health over length always and forever"
