As you all are aware I am a member of the Natural Hair Blog Directory, a place where many bloggers like myself can first of all be found by all of you lovely people and secondly find one another and share knowledge. There are so many of us and we all have such unique experiences that it’s a wonderful thing to be sorted out to connect with readers that can best identify with our journeys.

Well this week I received a lovely letter from another natural hair site with a chance for you all to jump in the networking fun.

NEW BLACK HAIR SITE CELEBRATES SUCCESSFUL NATURAL-HAIRED WOMAN EACH WEEK

BlackNaturalHairstyles.Org Features a Naturalista of the Week

 

(New York, NY – April 14, 2014) – As a plan to introduce a new generation of women with natural hair as women who pursue positive achievements in business, entertainment and social justice, new natural hair website BlackNaturalHairstyles.org will feature a new “Naturalista of the Week” on their home page each Monday.

“We want people to understand that natural hair is beautiful hair,” said site co-founder Tiffani Knowles. “You can be a sensational actress, a cunning lawyer or a passionate public advocate all while rocking a mean twist-out.”

Brackenson and Knowles Enterprises, LLC (BKE), the company that five years ago gave birth to the online art and culture, faith-based publication NEWD Magazine, launched BlackNaturalHairstyles.org this year on the final day of Women’s Month –  March 31.

Naturalistas themselves, co-founders Yannick Brackenridge-Jackson and Tiffani Knowles, launched the site as a testament to the power that women have when they join forces to honor what is naturally theirs.

Over the past decade in the United States, women of color in business and industry have chosen to reject permanent relaxers and embrace their naturally curly and kinky tresses.

To celebrate this new movement, the website will honor a new woman each week who professes that she does not or is no longer using chemicals to maintain her hair and is also positively impacting her community and world.

The website will give each naturalista her own page with a collage of a few of her own stunning natural hair photos, a mini-biography with how they’re impacting their community and a chance to share their favorite doos and styling products with the world.

Ghanaian model Priscilla Dwomoh, an advocate for Looks for Books – a non-profit that improves education in destitute communities in Africa, is our first “Naturalista of the Week.”

To nominate yourself or a fabulous naturalista you know, send your biography and 5 stunning photos to info@blacknaturalhairstyles.org.

    • Soooo…. about that… I’m not anti-weave. I think when done professionally it can be a great protective style. I can’t say that I subscribe to the notion of “bona fide naturalista” I think we’re a diverse sub-culture and there’s not right/wrong way to do it. I have fallen more in love with my Fro, but a wig/weave is not beneath me…… This just inspired another post. Thanks!! 🙂 I’ll work on gathering my pictures
