Natural Rockers You May Not Know But Should: Ash
Hi my beauties! You can call me Ash. I am a 29 year old stay at home mom living in Atlanta, who also owns and operates an online boutique of handmade jewelry at www.therebelboutique.com. I have been natural and loving it for four years and counting.
What or Who inspired you to go natural? Did you bc or transition?
Actually, no one inspired me. I didn’t even know that there was such a thing as a “natural hair community” until a few days after I cut my hair. I was searching for products to take care of my hair, and that’s where I found all of these beautiful ladies of different hues, hair textures, and in different phases of their natural hair journey. Prior to being natural, I always had long hair, but I was never afraid of a trim, cut or style. I woke up one day, scheduled an impromptu appointment with my stylist and told her to cut it all off. That’s pretty much how it went. I BC’d that thang!
Top 3 products and prices:

Sum Up You Natural Hair Journey In three Words:
Exciting, Freeing, Challenging
Any Advice To The Natural Newbies?
To all my newly natural beauties, please have fun with your hair. Be brave, step out of your comfort zone and rock your hair, your style, and your attitude like no one else can, because the truth is, NO ONE ELSE CAN ROCK IT LIKE YOU! Do not be afraid to stand out from the rest. If you want your hair to be long or a huge curly afro be patient. Patience is key! It will not happen overnight and you will not enjoy every stage. Also, do not envy other naturals curls, waves, kinks and coils. You are unique and so is your hair. No product can give you the same curls of another natural. Learn to embrace and love what you were born with, because you cannot change it. So I will say it again, “LOVE your hair, and never stress over it.”
What is your favorite compliment you have ever received on your hair?
I love your cut; it’s a mix between Cassie, Rihanna and Eva Pigford.
If you could only watch one natural hair vlogger on YouTube who would it be? Why?
Ohhh, that’s a hard one. I don’t watch YT as much as I use to couple years ago, but I still wouldn’t be able to pick just one.
