Hey Guys! This week's featured Naturalista is none other than the lovely Tiffany Shawn from www.mynaturalreality.com. I love this girl. A very supportive fellow blogger and lover of all things natural. Her blog and YouTube channel is a go to bible on hair care, fashion and inspiration. Check out her story below and follow her everywhere. Enjoy!

Where are you from?
Tiffany, born and raised in St. Louis

What’s something we wouldn't know by looking at you?
I'm 32 :) I am told I look much younger. I'm a fairly quiet person who isn't at all into networking, but it's something I'm slowly becoming more comfortable with.

How long have you been natural?
I had my last relaxer May 2010 and cut the relaxed ends on Dec. 26, 2010.

Did you do the Big Chop or did you transition to natural hair and When?
It was more of a big chop. I could only stand to transition for 6 months before the different textures worked my nerves.

Did you have a support system?
Very much so...the majority of my family and friends are natural and behind my back, they share my website and YouTube videos with others. I love them!

What is more important to you - Hair Length or Hair Health?
Hair health...can't have the length without the health!

What are some of your favorite natural hair products?
  • Oh it's too many to name lol. I can share what's getting the most play right now:
  • Miss Jessie's Super Sudsy Slip Shampoo and Super Sweetback Treatment
  • Ouidad Co-Wash
  • Coconut oil
  • Lace Natural products (yeah just "products" in general; everything I've tried, I love)


What is your natural hair regimen?
Honestly, I don't have a regimen because I can't keep up with it. For 7-8 months in 2013, I was cowashing every other wash but then that faded away as I forgot the schedule. So at this point, I just focus on keeping my hair clean, I try not to manipulate it too much between washes, and I deep condition for about 10 minutes in the hot shower every wash (it's my version of a steamer:)).

What advice would you give to someone who is considering to go natural or a newly natural sista?
Be yourself, everyone else is already taken. That's not my quote, it belongs to Oscar Wilde. But it's true for so many facets of life. I will look at other women and think "wow her body is amazing...her hair is so long and thick..." and so on, but at the end of the day, I can only be me.

Where can we find you?

DIY Moisturizing Leave-in Spray for Natural Hair

DIY Moisturizing Leave-in Spray for Natural HairGoing down the natural hair aisle at the beauty supply store can sometimes give us a real headache when we see the prices. Does natural hair products need to be this expensive? Does it have to be this hard to find a good moisturizing leave-in spray without breaking my pocket? The answer is no. You can make your own DIY moisturizing leave-in spray for your natural hair with ingredients that you probably already have in your house. 

Words of Encouragement

Hey Loves!

A few days ago I was very down on myself and needed some encouragement. My boyfriend sent me the following words to uplift my spirits and it did.  I feel like it will help some one too so please read below.

Me: God can I ask you a question?
God: Sure
Me: Promise u won't get mad

God: I promise
Me: Why did u let so much stuff happen to me today?
God: What do u mean?
Me: Well, I woke up late,
God: Yes
Me: My car took forever to start,
God: Okay
Me: at lunch they made my sandwich wrong & I had to wait,
God:Huummmm...
Me: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call.....
God: All right
Me: And to top it all off, when I got home ~I just wanted to soak my feet in my new foot massage & relax. BUT it wouldn't work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did you do that?

God: Let me see, the Death Angel was at your bed this morning & I had to send one of the other angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that.
Me (humbled): OH
GOD: I didn't let you…

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

Hi Loves,

I always get asked about how do I interlock my locs and the rotation I used - whether its 2-point or 4-point rotation. Some people also use the term 2-way or 4-way rotation.

In the video below, I illustrate on my own locs, the difference between the two methods. you can then compare for yourself, if there is a difference between the two by looking at my locs.



Do you interlock your locs? Share below which rotation do you use?
