My name is Nkenge Jones….for convenience I go by GeGe. I was born and raised in Washington, DC but reside in Montgomery County. Music is life and my mood is usually the DJ. I write poetry from time to time but usually when my soul needs a release. I love art and local artists, I need to try to get out to more events. Jay Z is my favorite rapper, Jill Scott is my big sister (in my head), my daddy is the greatest man (I’m biased) and if I could wear flip-flops every day I would. I currently work for Montgomery County Government in the Department of Health and Human Services.
I started my natural hair journey February 27, 2011. My transition period lasted 7-8 months then I big chopped April 15, 2011. The feel of relaxed hair and new growth was too much for my life so I let it go and Ms Ma’am was born. Ms. Ma’am is what I named my hair (that’s my baby). She can sometimes be a handful but I’m enjoying learning her; so far I know she’s all about that raw shea butter life. I can’t say I have a staple product (well outside of shea butter) but my staple style is a puff. I LOVE PUFFS!!!!! I know of naturals who have had negative feedback about their hair; I guess I’m pretty fortunate because either no one has said anything negatively directly toward me or I don’t care enough to listen.
