Hey Everybody, so I am going to begin a new thing called Spotlight, were I will showcase women or men, mainly women, who deserve to be recognized for their healthy and beautiful natural hair. The purpose of this is for you guys to get to know why they embraced being natural and how they do it, including their hair care routines, and their tips and advice that would benefit you in your own natural hair journey. Personally I’ve learnt a lot!
Each month I will try and ask different questions and I will try and target different individuals including bloggers, professional natural hair stylists, natural hair event planners, vloggers, etc.
Today I am placing a young woman, who goes by the name NaturallyMichy, in the spotlight! She is an experienced YouTube vlogger (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUWtP1_WUVExmbU6XM_5-rQ) as well as the owner of a natural hair blog (http://naturallymichy.com/).
Her videos and blog posts are very informative and easy to understand and I believe she is a great person to learn from so I am glad that she agreed to share her Natural Hair experience with us and how she achieved such lovely healthy hair.
Let’s see what she has to say:

So here is the scenario for those who did not watch this episode. The main character of the show is Mary Jane Paul and she has her own news/broadcasting show. This is where she works: Continue reading Being Mary Jane: No natural hair to work?!
6. YaYa Dacosta:
The absolutely stunning and elegant American actress and fashion model is one of the few celebrities who have been natural their entire life, even at the age and environment when it was not cool to wear natural hair. YaYa teaches us that it is okay to be different and not conform to society’s standards of beauty. Everyone should feel beautiful with their natural hair.
