her hair is beautiful, but one thing i find so difficult to do is to use advise from a naturalista with totally different hair type.. its just nt practical to me.. gorgeous though!

I don’t watch her for tips either. I’ve been subscribed to her channel for a long time but I dip in and out of her videos precisely because we don’t share a hair type. If you are looking for styling videos from tighter textured people then Jouelzy has a great channel for 4C hair. I think if you can get good tips from Nap85 then why not. I think she put a lot of people on to the mud wash but I can’t get that where I live. She has a nice spirit and her videos are easy watching. I… Read more »

Some of the best advice & hair tips I have received is from hair gurus with hair yours light years away from mine. At first I thought the same thing, but even if you can’t do all their styles, the hair health tips and methods can be just as useful..

me too. My hair is nothing like Whitney’s, and I use her tips.


*hair types


I have 4a hair and my wash n go’s , twist outs, braid outs, & bantu knots all come out the same too. I love this easy style though, definitely going try it out! Thanks whit!


Luv it!!! I live by this styling technique!!! So simple…seems to always come out as planned…Naptural85 is awesome, as always!!!

Whitney always has zero frizz and complete curl definition no matter what state her hair is in…which makes it generally very hard for me to achieve any of the styles she does. But she looks great in it! Go ahead!


it’s the oil. and the way she twists. plus she probably lives NorthEast United states where there is not so much humidity… don’t let it phase you.


She lives in Maryland like me and the humidity is crazy here! Her hair is always well moisturized, though so that helps fight frizz.


She lives on MA not MD


Humidity is what makes the northeast summers unbearable. I live in the NE (haven’t lived anywhere else) and having been to Quebec, New York , Philadelphia, Boston, and DC in the summer, I can say the humidity is there with a vengeance.


The humidity in the NE is NOTHING compared to humidity in the south. I have lived in DC, but I’m from Texas. Nothing I did to my hair in DC works in Houston.


Not sure how well this will work for my 4b/c hair, but it’s certainly worth a try! I guess this is a pretty good alternative for wash-n-go’s, besides co-washing and unsuccessfully “shingling” my cotton-like textured hair, lol. Great vid as always from Whitney 😀

I just bought some conditioners and I definitley plan to co-wash more frequently.


I love Whitney she is so full of life and her videos are straight to the point! I like her! NOT just her hair but her as a person! Whit shares so much of her time,life and energy! I will be doing this 3 times a week since I have been working out and scalp cleaning is not doing it for me..also the more you co wash the more moisture..I think her hair is healthy and retains length because she is always spraying her hair and moisturizing and sealing her hair. Thanks for the video Whitney!


I don’t like her tutorials. All her stuff is hard to do & it turns out looking the same! No matter what new tutorial she does, her hair always turns out looking like a twist out.

Um…this is just not true. I use her styles all the time and they don’t all look like twistouts. My bantu knots that I wore for a weekend this weekend look very different from my twistout. Her updos are staples in my styling. I don’t have curlformers so I haven’t tried her styles but it is clear that her results don’t look like twistout. I would argue that Whitney shows the broad range of versatility with our hair in its natural state. I don’t expect my hair to look exactly like hers because we have different hair textures. If that… Read more »
ah, so now we know who’s among those ‘dislikes’ on her channel lol honestly I’m as cynical as they come but all I get from Whitney is lovely brown skin & head full of curls that inspire me… never felt any other way. I mean especially now when we see her & her husband interact w/ their baby her reserved/guarded a-to-b-to-c personality kinda shows thru, and Filipe is all organic & all over the place, but that’s the beauty of them. It’s interesting to see their ‘parts’ find their ‘spots’ on each other. I get a feeling people get bitter… Read more »



Didnt think people would go so hard on an opinion… If Marcia doesnt like her tutorials well… She just doesn’t. No harm done. I will admit that SOME of napturals styles are a little hard to follow, but it works for some. Her channel is like a cooking show to me: I love watching what she does and wish I could do the same. Most likely never will.


If you can’t cook better than Rachel Ray, why are you trying to make a Wolfgang Puck recipe?

Then the OP needs to learn the basics first. This style is basically a wash n go preserved overnight to dry by a two strand twist; if a two strand twist is hard to someone people, it sure as heck ain’t Nap85’s fault.

And again, this looks nothing like a twist out.


There are so many youtube videos you can follow…find one that suits YOUR needs…I wonder? jealous? it’s ok…I’m jealous of her hair too…its beautiful

are you some kind of a troll or something? Cause what you said is like saying the sky is red. Look the same? Hard to do?


How in the world do her curlformers, basket curls, or foam roller curls look like a twist out? And she has quite a large amount of updo tutorials. Also, this clearly looks like a wash and go, her twist outs look different…most naturals’ twist outs don’t look like this. Lastly, if twisting your hair after you cowash is difficult, then outside of getting out of the shower and letting your hair drip dry all day, then every natural hairstyle is difficult.

And all of this is coming from a natural also not fond of Nap85 videos.


Out of curiosity, why are you not fond of them? Just wondering.


This was great. I work out five days a week, and I wasn’t even trying to wash my hair that often. I ain’t got time for that! This definitely seems like something I do do multiple times a week. And my hair isn’t as long as hers, so probably looking at 30 minutes or so! Thanks, Whitney! Almost everything I know about my hair, I learned for her.


I really love this girl, her advices are always useful. My hair thanks her haha ! Love from Paris, France.


Love it. I’m trying this tonight! I can’t wait until my hair gets as LNG as yours – gorgeous.
