She said: "My afro mens a lot to me.
"It's taken me 16 years to love my hair.
"I used to get bullied heavily for it. At school, people would throw paper balls in it, say I was electrocuted and it was untamed.
"Even in the workplace people said I should straighten it.
"I started watching YouTube videos in middle school and taught myself how to do my hair."
Now Justice helps other Black women love their natural hair and offers hair care tips.
She added: "If you want to grow your afro, don't wear it out and put it in twister braids instead.
"Oil your scalp every other day with rosemary or jojoba oil and a carrier oil."
