Featured Naturalista: IconicAfricana
Hello! My name is Temitope Olatunbosun (most know me by Felicia). I am 22 years old and a recent graduate.
What made you decide to go natural?
I decided to return my hair to its natural state because I truly missed the uniqueness of my natural hair. I saw my younger sister watching YouTube videos of ladies and their natural hair and I was completely inspired.

Did you Big Chop or did you Transition and When?
I began my transition from May 2011 to June 2012. I cut the relaxed ends as I began to see new and very thick growth.
Do you have hair goals?
I actually do not have hair goals necessarily but my overall goal is to keep my hair as healthy as possible. I just want to enjoy every moment of this natural hair journey.

Do you have hair length goals or hair health is more important to you?
I have always had very thick and long hair (4c) that is prone to breakage. Healthy hair is at the top of the list. I stick with a regiment that helps to maintain the overall health of my hair.
What are your favorite hair products?
I always make sure I use a few products at a time. My favorite products are Garnier Fructis Shampoo and Conditioner, Cantu Shea moisture leave-in and olive/carrot oil.
My regimen consists of washing my hair once a month. Water is my hair’s best friend! Moisture is extremely important. I also use simple styling with braids, twists and Bantu knot outs.

What advice would you give to someone who is considering going natural or a newly natural?
My advice for anyone that is on the natural hair journey or going natural is that patience is key. It is not an easy process but you will learn to enjoy and love every part of it. No matter, what you are beautiful!
