Ronke Raji Natural Hair Series - BellaNaija - October 20150012If you love crisp photography, makeup, fun videos on natural hair and bold hues, then you’ll love natural hair vlogger, Ronke Raji. The beauty photographer & makeup artist is one of our faves to watch, and she has started a natural hair series we are sure you’ll love.

The 9-part feature is aimed at dishing out information to the natural hair community, and will feature different women talking about their natural hair. The essence is to help different women with various hair textures figure out their individual coils, and get information from ‘seasoned naturalistas’ on how to care for, style and live life as a naturalista.

For the first episode, we get to hear from Cameroonian naturalista, Joyce Alouchka. She has Coily-Kinky natural hair and describes it as ‘tough’ to work with. She’s been natural for about 8 years now, and says the hardest part about being natural is learning to accept yourself irrespective of the views of others.

      #clapbackseason…lol… j/k…but, what does Americans trying to take over the world have to do with a natural hair blog that showcases women with all textures from all over the world??? sigh, there always have to be some hate I guess. Anyway, I think what you guys are doing is awesome. I follow you and Temi on YouTube and as a Nigerian with natural hair, I am truly inspired by you ladies! Keep up the good work. By the way, y’all are funny as hell.

    When my hair was permed with mama kubura edges, I used to beef naturalistas and their live and let die drama about their hair. Now that I have been natural for 4 years with shoulder length 4c hair, I have become a. Natural hair nazi. I am the chic stalking other naturalistas at whole foods asking trying too ask themm what products they use. And the few timed I’m not wearing a wig, I get loads of compliments, it’s not even funny

    Great hair, fun videos, pretty girls.

    I couldn’t get over Temi’s…. eh…. grammar though…. “No, you wasn’t”, “You was born in Towson”, etc. etc. Why now? I suspect you actually do know the right tenses…
