Top 6 Youtubers For Natural Hair

As an naturalista for almost 5 years, seeing how far the natural hair community has flourished is crazy to me. Being from Nebraska, the "fly over" state, I didn't have much resources on natural hair and how to maintain it. That was when Youtube become my bestie, I found so many natural hair Youtubers of all different curl pattern that gave me inspiration. Since then I'm starting to see more curls and afros in Omaha, I want to spread the knowledge. These are my top 6 natural hair youtubers.

6. Shan BOODY (@shanboody)

Clinical sexologist & author of LAID, Shannon Boodram's channel is mainly about the complicated layers of sexuality but every once and a while she'll drop a gem on curly hair. Known for her big curls, she gives great ideas for the simple curly on the go.

5. Shameless Maya (@mayasworld)

Shameless Maya's channel was originally about hair, make-up, and her #beshameless promotion. Now, she has expanded with tech help, vlogs, and videos over common questions that her boos ask. Maya is known for having a head full of luscious curls but decided to shaved it off for a start of something new. She has been unstoppable ever since.

4. ItsMyRayeRaye (@ItsMyRayeRaye)

Make-up connoisseur and hair guru Raye Royce is everyone's go-to for the best make-up looks. She's for the people because her channel is mostly full of drugstore goodies so it is very affordable. Royce is the best for hairstyles on full Chaka Khan blow-dried hair. (She also has an amazing lip line with Colourpop, I recommend buying both StingRaye and Rayezor. Only $5/$6!)

3. Melshary (@Melshary)

The proud Afro-Latina from Brooklyn, NY, Melshary's channel gives us naturals hope of her mind-blowing hair growth. She is who I go to for product reviews, and her "crap in a bottle" segments give me life. One thing I love about her channel is that she reviews and tests out all type of products for curly, whether the ingredients are good or not.

2. HeyFranHey (@HeyFranHey)

The Bohemian Storm from Harlem, Francheska, channel is all about hair, fitness (mental, physical, and spiritual) and overall wellness. I found out about the oil pulling (another way to clean your teeth) method from her and her DIY from deodorant to hair and skin butters save me so much money. I love her and everything she stands for and her body is #workoutgoals. She is also 1/3 of the podcast The FriendZone and she spreads the word of health there as well.

1. Naptural85 (@Nap85)

One of the first natural hair channels I followed during my hair journey, Whitney White, has been slaying Youtube with her hair tutorials. She helps me perfect my twistouts, which is still a hit or miss, and give me inspiration with other styles like curlformers and crownbraids. What I love about her is that her hair texture is more closer towards mine compared to everyone on the list so seeing her hair growth and simple methods is something I try to follow.

P.S. She also has 2 other channels, one with her adorable family,

and another dedicated towards make-up and style.

To all my fellow naturals, slay on, slay on.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
