Naturalista Sharlayne

Hi, my name is Sharlayne, I’m a freelance producer and writer and I also run an art collective for POC called Project Noir. I live in London.

I’ve been natural for 2 years now. I big chopped last November and it was the best thing for my hair once I got rid of those straggly straight ends. My hair is flourishing and growing incredibly fast! I think I was afraid of looking a bit boyish, but I love my fro.

I returned natural because I’d been chemically straightening my hair since I was 14. It was generally healthy until a bad dye job and it was never quite the same so after a bit of confidence building I took the plunge. This is my 3rd time and this time its sticking! I love straight hair too but ultimately my hair is healthiest natural.

I would tell someone who is thinking about returning natural to do it! You won’t regret it; your hair will thank you and it will literally change your whole mindset on beauty and accepting your true self.

I really have simplified my routine since going natural. I only really use coconut oil, either in a spray bottle with water or scrunched through my hair. Other than that, I have Shea Moisture shampoo and Lush R&B which smells delicious and is nice for a lil boost of moisture. I slick my baby hairs with aloe vera gel from Holland and Barrett – it’s natural and can be used on hair and skin.

My favorite go to natural hair style is a quick afro puff with a silk scarf or I wear my hair in braids.

 

 

I don’t use any heat on my hair. I scrunch it with a cotton t-shirt and let it air dry. I also finger comb as much as possible. The key is the less you manipulate your hair the better.
