Hey beauties! I’ve realized my beauty and hair posts get most of my traffic (check the sidebar —–> for my MOST POPULAR posts), so I’ve decided to serve up more beauty related material.
Natural hair is tough to maintain! A lot of people have been going natural lately, including moi, so I thought it was best to scout for some SERIOUSLY HOT naturalistas on the web and ask them what they did to maintain their nappy locks.
Not everything may work for everyone. But sometimes it’s just good to know what others are doing, how they are doing and what’s working for them. Get ready to be blown away by this segment. I’ve got a whole list of naturalistas lined up. If you’re on a natural journey yourself and would like to share your growth and tips please email firstname.lastname@example.org.NOTE: This feature is NOT bloggers or vloggers only. ANYone who is a naturalista is welcome to share. Let’s crack on.
We’re kicking off ABY Naturalista with the fierce Brittney. I asked her a few fun questions and here’s what she had to say:
A lil intro…My name is Brittney aka Naptural Elenore! Im from Cleveland, Ohio. I love all things beauty. I make regular youtube videos and post makeup and hair looks on instagram.
Your roots… I’m African American and European
What was your hair like before you went natural? Before I went natural my hair was relaxed.
Why did you decide to go natural? I actually decided to go natural by accident. I was wearing wigs due to hair damage and I eventually got a lot of “new growth” from not relaxing my hair for so long. I was motivated to Big Chop after watching other youtubers.
Did you big chop (BC) or transition? I transitioned for 6 months and then Big Chopped.
How long have you been natural? I’ve been natural for one year and eight months.
What’s your regimen? On wash day, I use an apple cider vinegar treatment for my scalp, pre-poo with coconut oil, co-wash, deep condition and then style my hair.
Do you protective style or go with the flow? The only protective style that I do is when I twist my hair for bed and put on my satin bonnet. If Im not going anywhere the next day then my hair remains in twists.
Your go to style…Two strand twists 🙂
Any styling tips? Always protect your hair when you go to sleep to prevent breakage. Also, since our hair is naturally dry, moisturizing it daily gives hair elasticity. Remember to seal in the moisture with a butter or oil.
Have you ever been tempted to relax? Nope!
Favourite products…Conditioner! Whenever I go to the store I’m always putting conditioner in my cart! Lately I’ve been really liking Tresemme Naturals and Eden Body Works deep conditioner.
