About Naturally You! Magazine

I went natural in 1997 – yes, over 20 years ago!

Soon after I went natural, my sister and mom did too.

In 2003, my sister and I were inspired to start a natural hair and lifestyle magazine – the first of it’s kind – and it was published in print for three years.

At that time, the current iteration of the natural hair movement was in its infancy. There were some people who had been wearing their hair naturally for years, but celebrities such as Zhane, Lauryn Hill, and Jill Scott had brought it into the mainstream.

My sister Toya and I were part of an online hair forum called Sisterhood Plus, and that was our lifeline to other naturals.

This was in the days of MySpace and Fotki; pre-Facebook, no YouTube or Instagram. Many of the natural hair websites we enjoy now didn’t exist.

The small but growing community of naturals online was tight-knit, supportive and empowering.

As we grew in our understanding of how to care for our own natural hair, we wanted to share what we had learned with as many people as possible, and so Naturally You! was born.

Three years later, we had 11 issues in print and a flourishing community. Unfortunately, our expenses continually outpaced our revenue, and we made the decision to close that chapter.

Reunited and It Feels So Good

In 2018, I relaunched this website to reconnect with the global natural community. Here, I share what I’ve learned in more than two decades of wearing my hair naturally. Tools and tips, successes and failures, and the simple wisdom that has stood the test of time.

Natural Hair / Natural Life

As we’ve traveled our natural hair journeys, the natural mindset has expanded to other areas of our lives. This includes food, family, wellness, and more.
