Naturally Fierce Feature: Justine

Hola! My name is Justine, I’m 23 years young and I currently reside in NYC. This fall I will be heading into my last semester of college (YAY!) to complete my bachelor’s in Political Science. I have been on, what I like to call, “My Healthy Hair Journey” since 2012. For the past two years, I have not only learned how to properly care for my hair, but by accepting my curly locks for the natural beauty they are, I have also gained so much confidence in myself. How long have you been … [Read more...]

Naturally Fierce Feature: Jocellyn

I don’t press my hair unless it’s my birthday or a special occasion where I need to be classier and not … [Read more...]

Naturally Fierce Feature: Ashley White

My name is Ashley White and I’m 24 years old. I was born and raised in Detroit, but I currently reside in Farmington Hills (a suburb of Detroit).  My hair journey has been interesting to say the least. You could say that I’m a newbie and I’m still figuring out what works for me and what doesn’t. What’s been funny about my hair journey is that in those moments where I wanted to give up on being natural, someone would come up to me and say “I just love your hair.” How long have you been … [Read more...]
