Naturalista Chinaza

My name is Chinaza Favor. I’m 20 years old and  I am 6’1Ft tall. I’ve been natural for two years and four months now. I had my hair cut because I used flat iron on my then natural hair and it got damaged so I had to start afresh.

To anyone thinking about returning natural, I advise that you don’t hesitate to do that as it’s going to be the best decision you’ve ever made for your hair. It’s also fun because you’ll be experimenting with different ingredients and the styles that you can make with your natural hair is unlimited.
My favorite products are Nature’s Gentle Touch Shampoo Castor oil and recently, I got this conditioner that I love so much, it’s XHC Tea Tree Moisturising Conditioner. Not to forget WATER.
My favorite hairstyle is ponytail, all packed to the back and Afro. There are so many tips for natural hair but I’ll give just a few; Spray water on your hair everyday, don’t comb your hair when it’s dry( it’ll break), try to deep condition your hair at least every once a month, take your hands off your hair!  By that I mean, don’t always touch your hair and lastly, avoid over manipulation of the hair and very tight hairstyles. Drink enough water, just enough.
You can get in touch with me on Facebook with the name Chinaza Favor.

Naturalista Destiny

destiny 2

My name is Destiny and I reside in the DC metro area.  I’m a southern belle/country gal from North Carolina with a doggie name Nini as my best friend (instagram/nini4ya).  I am an enthusiast of natural hair, natural/herbal living, doggies, crochet/knit, cookery and music.

I’ve been natural for 11 years. I have always been a “black sheep” in my own universe, rejecting all of the negative “isms” around, so it made sense for me to be natural.

Many times I’ve encountered women who inquired about being natural but most of them stated they either could not pull it off nor have the time to care for it.  I counter with sharing that my motivation for being natural was to finally be ME-not a VERSION of me…and be comfortable and in love with my own beauty, unconditionally.  So my advice was to get to that special place first then research, tryout and learn your natural hair with an abundance of patience on deck 🙂

I’m not a product junkie because my low porosity strands hates any white or alcohol filled product (product buildup) Most of my products are natural diy.  I wash and condition with either bentonite/rhassoul clay, seal with natural oils like almond, apricot, jojoba or with a botanical gel like Kinky Curly Custard or shea butter.

My 3 favorite natural styles  are braidouts, bantu knots and washandgos.

Naturalista Stephanie


Hi Naturalistas! My name is Stephanie aka Keep_kicking_it_naturally on social media and this is my second time returning to my natural hair roots. I first started my hair journey back in 2007 when I just wanted to grow my hair after joining an online hair group.

I was relaxed and the idea of stretching my relaxers and using minimal heat to achieve length without damaging my hair appealed to me.  Then as I was stretching my hair, I fell back in love with my texture. I’ve always loved my natural hair but once I was relaxed, I just figured I would just have to deal with relaxed hair forever and would have to do roller sets if I wanted curls. I became pretty good at doing roller sets.  The idea of big chopping to get back to my natural texture was such a foreign idea to me, but at last I gave it a try, although it was short lived.  I wasn’t quite ready, confident in myself and nowhere as knowledgeable about hair as I am today.


After a few high heat blowouts, bleached hair, weird comments from people, and so many other trial and errors; I relaxed my hair again. Only to hate it more!  I started my second natural hair journey July 1, 2013 and I have no plans of turning back. I amaze myself at how dedicated I am to my natural hair journey.  

I will tell anyone who is considering going natural to give it a chance. There is so much support out here to help you along the way.  You may like it, hate it, or love it.  You’ll never know until you try. There are challenges so be prepared for bad hair days—I’ve had plenty being relaxed and natural.  But the experience of caring for and maintaining your natural, your crown of glory, is very rewarding. 

I don’t have too many favorite products but my hair loves Shea butter, olive oil, Jamaican black castor oil and Eco style gel.  I purchase Suave Tropical Coconut Shampoo and Conditioner regularly for my wash day and lately I like Cantu Curling Cream. 

Right now, I couldn’t survive the work week without a good twist or braid out. It works for me because it last for the entire week until the next wash day. In the summer time I love doing wash and go—so I’m really ready for summer!

Naturalista Joanne


Hi, my name is Joanne Guiste and I am a naturalista from the Nature Island of the Caribbean, Dominica. I have been natural for just over two years.  I did my big chop on October 7, 2014.
The main reason was for the health of my hair.  I had started experiencing excessive shedding and lots of pimples in my scalp which brought on pain, more shedding and tears. Going back natural was in an effort to get back my hair to the healthy state it once was and to grow it to be as thick as it was before I started relaxing.


My advice to someone who wants to return natural is to do it because it’s something you want to do and not because everyone else is doing it.  When I decided to go back natural I had not realised that there was so much hype about the ” natural hair movement” because I went back natural for me.  So in choosing to return to natural don’t get caught up in all the “science” that is associated with taking care of your hair.. the journey will not be easy but love your hair for what it is and learn your hair so that you know and understand what it needs… and always remember “health before length”.. healthy hair will grow.

Some products that I use are the Shea moisture brand of products and currently I am using the Jamaican Black Castor Oil line.  I use my home made Shea and cocoa butter cream, as well as home made castor and coconut oils.  I use other oils such as jojoba, olive and vitamin E.  I use a local brand called Ny’s naturals and Eco styler olive oil gel for styling.


If I had to chose a favorite natural hairstyle I would have to say twists… Because I have the option to make small or medium sized or even large twists and wear them in pin up styles or loose… and what I love about twists is when you take them out it becomes a new style that can further be transformed into a number of other styles.


Some natural hair tips!
– remember your hair is unique to you so learn it and love it for what it is
– water is your best friend and not just on your strands but for inside as well.. be sure to drink lots of water
– eating healthy ensures your body is healthy which in turn extends to the health of your hair
– and just have fun with your hair…. you will be amazed the styles you come up with by just experimenting and having fun with your hair

Naturalista Tia



Hi, my name is Tia. I’m a 37 year old mother of two. I live in Greenville SC but Baltimore will always be my hometown. I have been natural for the last 16 years.


My reason for returning back to natural is because I was unhappy with my hair. I felt like it didn’t fit my personality. My sister is a hair stylist so I’ve had just about every hairstyle from short cuts, to weave, to braids. Tried them all with my relaxed hair. I decided to try no chemicals so I got it cut short and let it grow out and been loving it ever since.


If you are wanting to return natural, you have to have an open mind and be in love with your natural self and not anyone else’s natural self. Everyone’s texture is different so I always hear people complain or be disappointed that their texture is too loose or too tight and they see all these pictures of other people’s curls and expect that.


I also advice you to learn your hair. Learn the texture, the porosity, the thickness. This will help with choosing the right styles and products for your hair.


With my hair being loc’d now I don’t use too many products. I shampoo with Dr. Bronners Peppermint Castile Soap. I also oil my scalp with a homemade mix of jojoba oil, avocado oil and tea tree oil and spray it daily with rosemary and sage infused water.


My favorite go to style when it was loose is a wash n go on my short tapered cut. Quick and easy.
Right now I am semi free forming my tapered cut so I just spray, shake and go.

Naturalista Sabrina


Hi, my name is Naturalista!! I did the big chop on 2.27.13 and today is my anniversary of 4 years. I have done the big chop several times before deciding to let it grow and I don’t regret a thing. I must admit that I am a natural hair fanatic and a product junkie. I attend hair shows and sport natural hair t-shirts on a regular.

Big Chop

My motto is what works for me may not work for you so experiment with products or groceries until you find your MOJO!! I love old school products like pink lotion and AmPro styling gel, the newer naturals steer away from these products because of the ingredients but they are not harsh on my tresses and I love them. I am also a WordPress blogger, YouTube Vlogger, Instagrammer, and Facebook guru.

If you are planning on going natural just know it takes perseverance and a strong will to travel this path because natural hair is work. Your hair will not look like the girls on Instagram, YouTube, or Facebook because we were all blessed with different textures.

Don’t try to be like someone else, be you. That is what makes you unique. Embrace your 3b, 3c, 4c whatever you were born with because its apart of you. Never listen to the naysayers because they want to join the natural club but are afraid of the stereotyping. My last tidbit of advice – enjoy the journey and embrace your kinks.

I try to keep my hands out of my hair by wearing a protective style during the week like twists or braids; don’t be afraid of your hair fall in love with it and doing that you will appreciate your hair more.
