I’m a YouTube fanatic! I love it so much I even started making my own videos. Before I decided to go natural, I discovered tons of videos where ladies would explain what they did for longer, healthier hair. When I noticed how damaged my own hair was, I turned to the internet for an answer. All of these videos kept popping up. Some were about the best flat iron to use, while others showcased hair styles that required little to no heat.
Not knowing where to begin, I used the YouTube search bar to locate videos on growing african american hair longer. I found a video by Saleemah Cartwright, founder of Hydratherma Naturals. It was a picture slideshow of her hair from completely shaved to length down her back! I later found MacherieHair’s video (no longer posted)on how she does a silk wrap after doing a rollerset for straight and bouncy hair. This one was a shocker! In the beginning her hair is completely wrapped in saran wrap. Then she starts to comb it out…whooaa! Her hair was long, healthy and full of body. So that was all it took…I was completely hooked. The videos about growing healthy hair led me to where I am today.
The Natural Hair community on YouTube is growing larger by the minute. I joined in the Fall of 2008 and can see that there are a lot of new naturals hitting up the site. It’s fun to share our experiences and give advice to those who are starting their journey. It’s a great resource for naturals because you get to see how others care for their natural hair. Since everyones’ hair texture is unique, you get a better idea of how a style or technique may work for you.
I still check out YouTube videos when I’m looking for a cute new style or to watch product reviews. I stop by each day to respond to comments and questions from my own subscribers. You can check out my YouTube Channel here. See you on the Tube!
