Natural Rockers You May Not Know But Should: Nefertiti
Tell me a little about yourself.
Heyyyyy! My name is Nefertiti! I’m 21 years old, from NYC, New York! I’m currently in college, and I have been natural since November 21, 2011.
What or Who inspired you to go natural?
Well I wanted to big chop my junior year of high school because I was extremely tired of perms (I don’t have patience to sit in salons) and I thought my friend was extremely beautiful with her natural hair. Back then I listened to everyone around me but myself.. so I never did it and stopped thinking about it for a while. I waited until after high school graduation to big chop. By the time I turned 18, I didn’t look back.. I transitioned for 2-3 months, shaved both sides of my head, and gave myself a bob all on my own. On Nov.21 of 2011 I went into my bathroom with scissors, washed my hair then started chopping my entire perm off.
Top three products and prices.

4.Fave go to hairstyle.
My favorite go to hairstyle is of course the wash n’ go and my twist outs. I’m a pretty lazy natural ! haha!
5.Have you tried hair shadowing?
I have never tried hair shadowing. If I decide to give my hair a break from bleaching I would definitely use the splat washables! It looks amazing! I don’t think I can ever go back to my black hair. I honestly love color too much…
Sum up your natural hair journey in three words.
Freedom. Wild. & Experimental.
Any advice to the natural newbies?
Have fun. Play with your hair. Keep it simple! Don’t drown your hair in product. Learn to love it short (if you BC) or in any state it is in. Be proud and thankful you have beautiful hair! Don’t try to tame your hair.
