Naturalista Jamellia

My name is Jamellia McFarlane but friends call me Millie. I was born in Queens New York but raise in Florida. I’m 27 and a social worker. I have been natural since Nov 2011- so 6yrs.

I returned natural because I had shaved the side of my hair and wanted to start over. I was doing weaves, but my hair was so uneven and had damaged ends, I needed a fresh start.



If someone is thinking about returning natural I would say to them that we should have never left but everybody has their own journey. When I was growing up, I was a box braids baby because I had thick hair, was tender headed, and my mom didn’t know what to do with my hair because I would always cry when it was time for it to be done. Side note, my mom has dreads currently. But anyways, eventually I begged her to perm it. Yea perms made my hair kind of manageable but also lifeless because it damages the curl pattern. Plus, if I knew how to take care of my natural hair, stopped looking at other cultures hair, and wishing/trying to reach their hair goals, my hair would be so different. Shoot I should have just locked up anyways because I was wearing braids all the time but that wasn’t my mindset, so then I became dependent on weaves until my big chop in 2011.


I feel as black women we are creative, and weaves are as a craft to us, but we shouldn’t be so wrapped up or dependent on it that if we don’t have it, we don’t feel beautiful. Our hair DOES GROW, it just needs some patience, less expectations, as well as sun, water, and oil. We have the definition of beautiful hair.

P.s if I would have locked my hair when I was younger, it would have been down my back by now. Probably would had higher self-esteem because my hair was a low point of me. But I’m happy where I am now, and this hair journey I’ve been on. I wouldn’t change it for anything. In 2 yrs., my hair has grown tremendously with locks. I’ve found a way to finally care it by patience, self-acceptance, and love.



I’m always down for new oils but my go to’s are Coconut oil, Jamaican black castor oil, tea tree, and water lol.

My favorite hairstyle is half up and half down.

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 Sola


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:
  1. Shampoo: Sheamoisture Jamaican black castor oil shampoo. Deep conditioner: Aussie Moist 3 minutes 3x
  2. Leave in: Sheamoisture restorative conditioner
  3. Moisturizer: Eden bodyworks curl defining cream
  4. Styler: Eco Styler Black castor and flaxseed oil gel

My favorite natural go to style is twists with my own hair.

Naturalista Tracey

Hi my name is Tracey.  I am a month shy of turning 49 years old, I am also a wife and a mother.  I am currently attending school to become diagnostic medical sonographer.  I have been natural 12 1/2 years.  In 2004 I was laid off and could not continue to perm my hair.  So I started getting my hair braided.  One day I went to get my hair braided and asked the stylist, “If you cut the permed hair can you braid my hair?”  She answered yes and the rest is history.
I would encourage anyone wanting to return natural to love themselves, be confident and don’t allow anyone to make you feel bad about your decision.  It does take patience, you must find what works for you.  Your natural hair is beautiful and so are you!
I love bentonite clay to clarify my hair and scalp, Giovanni Smooth as Silk conditioner, Shea Moisture’s Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Hair Masque, Mielle Organics Moisturizing Hair Milk, NeKeShea Butternut Leave In Conditioner, and Vitamin E oil.
I have two go to styles:  Wash n Go’s and mini twists.
However, I am taking a turn in my natural hair journey.  I began my loc journey as of 2-12-16.  I hope that you will join me and watch the progression of my loc journey.

Naturalista Jamela


Hi, my name is Jamela S. I am a US Army veteran of 8 years. I am currently in school for Network Engineer working on my Associate’s degree. I have natural hair and I love it. Going back natural was the best decision I could have made for my hair. I now have BSL(Bra Strap Length) hair and my goal is WL(Waist Length). I wash my hair with a shampoo once/twice a month and I co-wash as needed. I always follow up with a deep conditioner and rinse with cool water.It took me a while to figure out what my hair needs to be great,  but I enjoyed learning along the way. At times, I wish I would have gone natural sooner, but I don’t think I could maintain it as good being in the military.

I started my transition in June 2012, and I big chopped on Dec 2012. This year in December I will be at 5 years natural. I returned natural because I realized that my hair was thinning out, breaking, and wouldn’t grow, I had no edges and no hair at the nape of my head (Lower neck, or the kitchen as some call it). After taking out a set of kinky twist, I made my decision. At first, I was skeptical but I am glad that I continued my journey.


If someone was thinking about returning natural, I would tell them that being natural can be a lot of work but it is well worth it. If you transition your way through, make sure to handle your hair gently because you are handling two different textures and the ends are very sensitive. You will want to keep your hair moisturized so that it doesn’t get dry and brittle. Always detangle your hair gently, and don’t use heat often. I use heat once or twice a year. Once you find the right products that give your hair moisture you will become in love with your hair. Oh, and you will have shrinkage all that means is that your hair is healthy embrace it! Wear your crown with pride!

I have been through a lot of products, but I have finally figured out what works best for my 4c hair. I love oils such as my favorite Jojoba oil. I also use Olive, Castor, and Avocado, and sometimes coconut oil. I mostly use Jojoba, Avocado, and olive when styling, and coconut oil when conditioning.  Products I use regularly are, Herbal Essence Hello Hydration or Aussie Mega Moist conditioner, Dark and Lovely AU Naturale Coil Moisturizing Soufflé, Aloe Vera Gel, and whipped Shea Butter that I make myself. I also use organic honey for my deep condition and ACV (Apple Cider Vinegar) as a rinse.Other products I have used are Suave Naturals Shampoo and Pantene Co-Wash.

My favorite go to hairstyle are twists, they are low maintenance and they allow for my hair to rest and grow. When I install my protective twists I usually leave them in for 4 months with a re-twist every two weeks. I also love puffs and twist out, the puff is easy to do after wearing my hair in a twist out.

You will want to find out a routine that suits you, this may take time. Just be patient and give your hair the love it deserves.
