Meet Carolina aka Miss Rizos. She is a Dominicana and is leading the natural hair movement in the Dominican Republic. Miss Rizos founded www.missrizos.com after going natural a year ago after 15 years of ‘alisado’ or relaxers. This is huge especially in DR. When I visited, I saw about 3 women who wore their hair without a relaxer. My host said people immediately asked if I were from Brazil or Curacao because I could not be from DR because I wore my hair curly. Miss ‘Curls’ is here to offer her support, advice, tips and amazing personality to those seeking the natural way. Visit La Tiendita de Lolita. Follow her on twitter for updates!
