Riley Burrus explains her hair journey 

Back in September 2023, when Riley decided to go fully natural, she hopped on TikTok to share more details about the process. 

“I also took out my braids the other day, like, randomly — knowing that I don’t actually know how to do my real hair,” she said in the video. “So the past couple of days have been a real journey. The past few days have consisted of me asking my mom, ‘OK, how do I — what should I do when I go to sleep? Should I twist it? Should I brush it?’ I have a million questions and she’s sending me a million products.”

Riley said styling her natural hair is also quite time-consuming, so much so that it’s made her late on multiple occasions. 

“I’m not used to that. I [used to] throw on a wig and go,” she continued. “But now it’s, like, OK I have to brush my hair out, unbraid it, brush it, put products on it — it’s a lot.”

Even so, the Georgia native seems happy with her current journey and we're so here for it!
