Suggested questions for your Roots Reunion natural hair interview.

The interview questions are mainly to help guide you an jumpstart the conversation. You do NOT have to answer all of them. Pick one or a few questions to answer or feel free to come up with your own. If you have been involved with A Nappy Hair Affair there are some questions related to that and we would love to hear some reflections about that Our hair is a passionate topic but try to keep interviews brief, no more than 10 minutes or less. Thanks!
