Nigerian born, natural hair Youtuber, Temitope Adesina best known by her brand name – Naturally Temi is definitely hair goals.

The self-taught hairstylist joined the natural hair gang in 2012, 7 years ago, and ever since she hasn’t looked back. Looking at her growth it’s hard to believe she is Nigerian but that’s where hard work, perseverance and of course a ton of hair products come in.

One major challenge for ladies with natural hair is “How To Style It”. They see a lot of cute hairstyles online but are not sure how to pull it off.

Well, today we’ll share with you easy natural hairstyles as seen on Naturally Temi’s Instagram page.

Let’s talk hair manipulation. One of the reasons why my hair has flourished is because I don’t manipulate my hair often. In this photo, my hair looks amazing and the style is dope but this is a style I would do only once in a while because of the constant manipulation I would have to do. When I do my regular Braidouts, twistouts, perm rod sets, etc. I do my hair while it is wet to cut down on extra breakage. Because my hair is type 4 and extremely thick, if I do my hair when it’s dry then it takes a bunch of extra work from detangling (which will cause excess breakage), styling, and ultimately feels super dry. It’s just not worth it to me which is why I style my hair when it is soaking wet 90% of the time. Actually, 95% of the time. I don’t have to worry about moisture too much during the week because water is the ultimate moisturizer and I seal it with an oil or my leave in and then style my hair. By the time I unravel the twistout it feels moisturized and I won’t have to moisturize it until about 3 days later and most times I won’t have to moisturize it at all until my next wash day. Of course the porosity of your hair plays a part as well. But yes, low manipulation is key, I don’t re twist my hair during the night, I just put it in 3 ponytails and throw my bonnet on. Hope this helps some of you. . . . #naturalhairdoescare #4chairchicks #myhaircrush #teamnatural_ #teamnatural #naturallyshesdope  #berrycurly #kinkychicks  #protectivestyles  #voiceofhair  #naturalhairloves #respectmyhair  #unconditionedroots #healthy_hair_journey #hairnbeautydirectory #naturalhair #blackboldandnatural #naturalhairbloggers #essencemag #naturallycurly #naturalgirlsrock

Growth is something that is always constant. Last year, there were some things I tried changing about myself that made me feel extremely vulnerable and uncomfortable. I know growth and change isn’t comfortable but it seemed forced and that I wasn’t being honest with myself. I was becoming someone that people wanted me to be and not who I truely felt I was. So, this year, I decided that I’m no longer forcing things on myself. If people can’t deal with who I am at the core, then that’s there problem. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying I choose to not grow, I just choose to not be anything other than who i truely am, just because others want me to be different, if that makes sense.
