Feature: DatFunkyFro

Happy Thursday Everyone,

I am so excited to present to you our very first Curly~n~Natural feature of the month. DatFunkyFro! Isn't she beautiful!

1.How long have you been natural?
This is my second natural hair journey.I did the Bc on March 2010 and before that I transitioned for 6 months. The first one only lasted about one year.

2.What or who inspired you to go natural?
The love of my kinky, curly hair made me go natural. At the time, I didnt know so many women were also natural.

3.What is your favorite natural hair style?
I have two. A bun and a frowhawk. Though I dont really rock these, I love them and can't wait to reach the length that will easily permit me to wear them.

4.What is your favorite natural hair product?
Three things my hair loves are : coconut oil, shea butter and black soap

5.Why do you love being natural?
I love being natural because I am being myself 100 percent. I love being natural because I feel so at ease rocking my God given hair. Most of all, I love being natural because I can wear an afro today, or a twist out tomorrow etc. The versatility of natural hair is just simply amazing!

6. What words would you use to inspire and encourage other naturals or someone who is thinking about going natural?
I would say : "Be confident! I cannot stress this enough. When going natural, do not expect encouragement from others to build your confidence because that encouragement might just not be there. Confidence is the first key to wearing natural hair. The second key is knowledge! Arm yourself with knowledge to know how to maintain your hair! Stand tall and wear your ‘fro with total self-assurance."

*My sis DatFunkyFro also has an awesome blog,

And again ladies thanks for your support! If you would like to be featured, answer the above questions in your own words and email them to me @ Dont forget to attach some pictures of your beautiful selves! God bless you!


  1. Thank you so much sis for featuring me! I am truly honored!
    God bless you!

  2. Shea butter works better at sealing in moisture than it does at moisturizing. If you use a water based leave-in spray then the shea butter, you should be good to go. Unrefined shea butter is hard, so if you get it add a little oil or aloe vera juice to it and whip it with a mixer to make it creamy.
