  1. I chose Robin because I admire how she realizes that it’s important to not only take care of your hair but your body too. Her fitness routines,hair care practices and overall healthy lifestyle are an inspiration.

  2. Troll though really? I guess you didn’t catch the not to be rude & saying that Alex’s hair looks better is my opinion because its coming from me & thats how I feel. I don’t know who you are but I’m sure your way too old to be calling names. Troll.. I’m far from one. I’m beautiful and I always have been, I’m just another girl on here stating her opinion. Why must you make everything a argument or a debate? Say how you feel and keep it moving, k thanks.

  3. Yes I know favourite means one but I can’t pick one so here goes: Schebania from Atlanta; Kanga from the Ivory Coast; and Tori from Jamaica.
    These ladies are also my hair-crushes and hair-inspirations to keep going with my natural hair!!!! :)

  4. Love all these ladies! You guys are truly inspirations for different reasons! I went with Alicia James because I loved following her natural hair journey! You literally see her journey from the beginning to her beautiful long tresses now…I also love her website and video tutorials. I like robins hair too however I feel like her journey is more about length and reveals and not her “natural” tresses. I would love to see her natural texture more often ..i.e wash and go’s, curly styles-not just her two braided braid outs

  5. I agree with Pauline Green. All the sistah’s are beautiful with their lovely head of hair.

    We just need to be happy, eat well and balance our lifestyles to have healthy head of hair.

    Thanks for showing all of us that don’t think we can have our own long hair without wearing any wigs!

    A challenge, lets grow our hair naturally…
