All About Silvia and Makena’s Natural Hair Journey
We love hair freedom and the women who embrace and rock their curls and kinks with nothing but pride. Meet Silvia and Makena, two beautiful Kenyan naturalistas and founders of the blog Nywele Natural, a platform dedicated to changing the perception of natural hair by sharing their own journeys and hacks picked up along the way.
Both these curlies have been friends for over 7 years and have come to become even more closer over their natural hair journey. While Silvia is all about the volume and flaunts her mane in the traditional afro, Makena is loc-ed and we simply cannot choose our favourite as we are LOVING ‘em both.
Silvia’s curls just know how to have fun! She loves letting her hair run loose and wild. Embracing her natural hair is the way to go for her. She usually wears her afro with her bangs parted to the side. We are HUGE fans of this look. Aren’t you?
Once Makena started wearing her hair in locks, she has never looked back. She is a die-hard natural who rocks her locs on a daily basis. Her transition phase was quite difficult but she chose to stick to her ‘roots’. She loves using castor oil, olive oil and shea butter to moisturize her natural curlies. Seems like you may be in luck as ProfectiV Mega Growth Deep Conditioneris enriched with all listed above. It contains a pro-growth complex that not only strengthens but also boosts hair growth.
The duo encourages every new naturalista to start their journey with a confidante. Having a ‘curlfriend’ means getting encouragement and support through your hair journey, having someone to share experiences with and also someone who makes the journey more fun.
