An Interview with Black Hair Magazine Editor: Keysha Davis

Name: Keysha Davis
Heritage: African-Jamaican
Location: South London
 The best thing about what I do is ...
To be able to connect with so many amazingly inspiring women
If I wasn’t doing what I’m doing, I’d be ...
working in the field of psychology or buying and selling property.
Being a black woman is...
the best thing ever. Despite the shroud of negativity that often surrounds black womanhood, I don’t think there’s ever been a better time to be a black woman, we are certainly enjoying a moment.
I think beauty and fashion diversity at the moment is....
getting there. There’s a lot more inclusivity in fashion and beauty than there was say 5-10 years ago. I think that’s owed largely to the amplified voices on social media that are calling companies out for failing to be reflective of the beautifully diverse planet we live in.
My favourite hair style was...
I had the T-Boz (TLC) asymmetric bob in my early 20s. It was everything.
I look after my hair & style on the go by...
ensuring that I use a daily moisturiser as my hair tends to get dry.
My hair care routine is...
I cleanse every fortnight, maintain daily with a moisturiser (Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk is my current fave) and braid my hair up at night and cover with a satin headscarf.
I try to maintain healthy hair by...
Ironically, I can be extremely lazy with my hair, but I try and deep condition at least once a month.
You’ll never see me wear my hair....
I say never say never. There’s no off limits for me with regards to my hair. I’m not as experimental with my hair as I was during my younger years, but I’ll try any style at least once.
My biggest hair regret / disaster was
I had a terrible weave when I was in my early 20s. I was going for the Mary J trademark blonde weave but ended up with an eyesore bulky ginger mullet.
 The quote I live by......
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams – Eleanor Roosevelt.
 My favourite hairstyle ....
A healthy and nourished ‘fro.
The hair product I can’t live without....
 My secret hair tip....
Applying bendy rollers to natural hair significantly reduces shrinkage and loosens tangles.
 My worst hair habit....
not getting rid of split ends as soon as I should do.
My spirit hair style is....
A big curly afro.
Favourite way to wear your hair:
Natural Braided
 The hair tool I cannot live without...
Biggest Hair Challenge....
Wearing it out regularly without getting copious tangles.
 If I was stuck on a desert Island, my three hair items would be....
Because....
I’ll be able to wear my hair as I currently do.
The best piece of advice I’ve received is...
Everything materialises at the right time. Trust the process. 
To me, hair means...
My hair is very important to me. I feel it is intrinsically linked to my identity, and also a visual representation of my heritage. On a more superficial level, I love the never ending styling options that my hair presents, it provides me with another outlet to express my creativity
 I would tell my younger self...
That your quiet geekiness and self-perceived weirdness will actually work to your benefit.
I’d love to dye my hair to....
purple. I’m working on it.
 If I could swap hair with anyone in the world living or dead, who would it be and why?
No one
because...
I‘ve really learned to love my own hair, but I do have a bit of a hair crush on YouTuber Neffy Fro Fro AKA Laila Jean Washington
Beauty is...
fun, empowering, creative. 
My advice to young black women who struggle with confidence is...
We are all a work in progress, so be gentle with yourself. Your confidence will grow with age and experience.
What message do you want to give to all women of colour who struggle to love their hair and themselves...
learn to not compare yourself to others and embrace everything that makes you uniquely you.
