This is a very topical episode as we discuss Audrina’s natural hair journey and her fight to wear her natural hair at work and ultimately being diagnosed with Alopecia, forcing her employers to allow her to wear her hair natural.

  • How she was unable to wear her natural hair at work due to her employers

  • Why she was "forced" to go natural 

  • What it was like transitioning from straight hair to natural hair in real time on-air
