We had the good fortune of connecting with Mishana Malahoo and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Mishana, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
For me risk taking can have a good or bad outcome. When I decided to leave my physical 9-5 job and work from home full time, I was still on the negative side of thinking that if this doesn’t work out then what’s next? Do I go back to working in an office?
Eventually, I braved up and put that negativity on the back burner and ran with the opportunity to work from home.

Fast forward to now, I have gained so many experiences and new skills that I didn’t know I was capable of doing.

Working from home gives me the opportunity to start my hair content page and I am having so much fun with it.

At the end of the day, I believe in taking risk with a positive attitude as the results may surprise you.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am a natural hair influencer. What sets me apart from others, I would say my personality and my content creation says a lot about me. I do what makes me comfortable and what works for me. I started my natural hair journey back in 2018. My hair was over processed and it was time for a change. Back then, I faced a lot of challenges and that’s because I didn’t know what I was really doing. I had no clue how to care for my natural hair. I bought products without even knowing if they were for my hair type. I didn’t do any research. I literally went in blind and hoping my hair would just get healthy with anything.
Eventually, persons started reaching out to me after I did my big chop and they started asking me questions, wanting tips, needing advise on what they need to do to get their hair healthy or even long.
That’s when I realized, I needed to fix me – what even works for me, do I have a hair type?

Today, I am proud of the person I have become on this journey. I have learned so much about my hair – the type, what is likes and I have been using my platform to help others too.

When you see me, you will know I am an individual who takes care of myself as well as trying to maintain a healthy hair lifestyle.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If my bestie was to visit me, it would be a week of fun! We would have a little road trip on the north coast in Jamaica.

We would book an Air BnB.
