Hi, my name is Sola, and I am a mom of two girls, ages twelve and nine. We love all things natural hair and share that passion on our YouTube channel, DiscoveringNatural. When we are not making videos, we love to spend time as a family, traveling and also cooking.
I have been natural since November 2012.
My oldest was relaxed when she was younger because I didn’t understand how to care for her hair. So after I transitioned her, I decided to stop relaxing my hair so as to be a role model to my two daughters and to show how beautiful we are with our God-given hair.
My advice to someone who wants to return to their natural hair is to firstly make sure you are doing it for the right reasons. Do your research. Understand that your hair will not look like every other naturals’ hair. It will be your own unique hair and it will be beautiful. You will have days where you are not in love with your hair, those are the days where you should open yourself up to learning about your hair.
Some of my favorite products:
Shampoo: Sheamoisture Jamaican black castor oil shampoo. Deep conditioner: Aussie Moist 3 minutes 3x
Leave in: Sheamoisture restorative conditioner
Moisturizer: Eden bodyworks curl defining cream
Styler: Eco Styler Black castor and flaxseed oil gel
My favorite natural go to style is twists with my own hair.
