Hello! My name is Qwania and you may recognise me as natural hair blogger of Naturalista4me.

I’m from a small town that is popular for their sweet onions – Vidalia, GA and married with four children, recently taking a leap of faith by relocating to Tennessee to grow in my purpose.

My natural hair journey began in 2012 when I big chopped after transitioning for one year. I did not plan on returning natural when I stopped relaxing my hair, I just did not want to relax my hair while pregnant, so I wore protective and transitioning styles. July of 2012 my husband gave me a big chop and so the journey began.

I have always had a love for hair as my grandmother had a salon when I was a child. I spent many days and nights there watching her, and the other stylists build confidence in their customers. I began to practice doing hair on my grandmother’s mannequin doll heads at the young age of seven. Not only am I passionate about hair care but I am passionate about the overall well being of a person.

I do not remember my grandmother styling natural hair, but I do remember the smells of relaxer, jerry curl kits, spritz and hot curler stoves. After my big chop I had to teach myself how to care for my texture. In the beginning, my hairstyles did not always turn out how I expected them too, but I quickly learned how I could turn that failed hairdo into something that works.

I decided to start a YouTube channel, Naturalista4me, to share my journey. I am now on a semi free form loc journey, but I still share information about all-natural hair types, loose and locked. I also have two daughters whom are loose natural. I transitioned my oldest daughter from relaxed to natural and my youngest has never had a relaxer.

I approach hair growth differently than many as I focus on it from the inside out. For example, many whom are dealing with hair loss or thinning hair have underlying health conditions that are a contributing factor. We can purchase every product on the shelf but if our inner is not healthy, it will reflect on our outer appearance (skin and hair).

I am passionate about sharing my knowledge with everyone and boosting confidence around the globe. I organize and host workshops so that I can be face to face with others and connect. I love to connect. I hope to see you at a workshop someday!
