“Where there is a woman there is magic.”
You. You are a phenomenal women. In celebration of International Women’s Day on the 8th of March, we are doing something a bit different. Natural By Nature’s first love is and always be will be natural hair, and so we wanted to share with you some of the women who put natural hair firmly on the map! The global map that is! For all the bloggers, vloggers and those creating conversations about the beauty of natural hair and giving women the confidence to wear it like a crown; we salute you!
Made up of two friends, Jay and Tri, the dynamic London duo are unapologetically honest, never shy away from important issues in the natural hair community and are passionate about black empowerment. Make sure you support their latest venture the awesomely named book Kink which is made up of “personal mantras, powerful and uplifting poetry with sultry, vulnerable yet striking imagery of black females whom possess skin tones, hair styles, ages and hair textures that rarely shine in the media”.
