The natural hair movement is reminding Black women everywhere that we were born to slay just the way we are. In case you did not get the memo, natural hair and beauty influencer Kish Burries is here to reinforce the message. With more than 45,000 followers on Instagram, this social media maven is here to make sure your kinks, coils and curls are intact and your edges are laid for the gods.
Having participated in several panels such as the Living No Lye Tour, Kish has dedicated her journey to showcasing live styling demos, hair growth tips and techniques, as well as personalized healthy hair care regiments. She’s basically the best friend you wish you had in real life, but fortunately for you, she can be your social media companion.
While many believe being a public figure or a social media influencer is a walk in the park, Kish will attest wielding that influence is no easy feat. From the content creation process to the endless campaigns and cross-promotions, it is easy to forget to make time for self-care.
How does Kish handle the pressures of the new world of digital relationships? Luckily, the Florida native has a supportive husband who makes sure his wife stays healthy—both emotionally and physically. In an interview with Team Beautiful, Kish said, “I literally take the time out for myself to work out, to go see a movie. My husband helps me a lot with this, because I’ll do so much work to the point I haven’t eaten or I’ll get two to three hours of sleep, and he’ll tell me some days cut it short, take some time to meditate, take some time to pray or go work out.”
We all can attest to how easy it is to get caught up in doing it all, that we forget to make time for ourselves. But keep in mind beauties, nothing is more important than self-care.
