When I decided to stop chemically straightening my hair after years with a perm, I turned to the blossoming natural hair community on YouTube and Instagram for styling solutions. There, I found girls galore who used the Internet to share tips and product recommendations for kinky, coil-y strands.
It felt like I was part of a new exclusive club, and since watching my first flat-twist tutorial, I've been a committed member. I can admit to canceling my Saturday night plans to spend time perfecting my braid-out or running late for work because my wash-and-go attempt ended in an epic fail (and a hat).
Over the years, I've watched #teamnatural grow into a big business. Some of my favorite bloggers have turned millions of followers into money-making beauty deals. Naptural85 (my personal curl crush) was just featured in Carol's Daughter's ad campaign! These Afro gurus have become the new example for black female entrepreneurs.
