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.

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?

BEST CLARIFYING SHAMPOO FOR LOCS

I have tried many shampoos in my locs to determine what is the best clarifying shampoo for locs that will give us that deep cleansing action that we need periodically.   First, lets talk about what is a clarifying shampoo and how to effectively use them in your locs. Clarifying shampoos are meant to deep clean your hair/locs - removing all dirt, oils, products and debris. However, clarifying shampoos can be quite harsh on the hair leaving it dry and brittle but clean. Because of the drying effect, I highly recommend following up with an oil rinse or a moisturizing shampoo. If you use conditioner in you locs, then you can go straight to conditioning. Sadly, not all clarifying shampoos are made equal and thus not all effectively clarify the hair/locs. I have tried many different clarifying shampoos that leave my hair dry and feels squeaky clean but I can clearly see that it is still dirty. Even shampoos that I swore by when i was loose natural and even in the first few years of m
