Last week, we featured “6 Natural Afro-Latinas to Follow on Youtube”. This week, we are showing you 7 natural Nigerian vloggers. Naija, stand up!
NaturallyTemi is Yoruba, which is one of the major tribes in Nigeria. Her YouTube channel features hair style tutorials and gorgeous makeup looks. You can also find her on instagram: @naturallytemi.
Mezecurls, also Nigerian, is fairly new to YouTube but has numerous videos uploaded already. She demonstrates how to create unique hair styles and also shares a bit about her natural hair journey. What’s more? She was a long-term transitioner – about 3 years!!! You can find her on Instagram as well: @mezecurls.
Geri is Igbo, which is another major tribe in Nigeria. You may recognize her from many articles on here and she also was a BGLH Style Icon in 2012. Her channel covers natural hair care and hair style tutorials. She also has an informational hair care blog titled Geraldine the Great.
Taiwo is a Yoruba who was born in Italy and now lives in Atlanta, Georgia. On her YouTube channel, she shares numerous hair style tutorials and a bit on her hair care journey. She was also a BGLH Style Icon last year. Below is a quote (from that article) in which she discusses her experience as a natural in middle school and high school:
“I was also bullied heavily and multiple peers would come up to me just to taunt me about something dealing with my African background and appearance, including my hair. I also often envied those who were considered to have “pretty hair”—those who appealed to more Eurocentric ideas of beauty. As a result, I would find myself hiding behind weaves, braids, or other types of extensions. But even when I tried to feel my “best”, I never thought that I was being my true self or ever really good enough for me. I really grew tired of how detrimental my thinking was, so in December of 2011 I made a New Year’s Resolution to truly experience the meaning of accepting myself and acknowledge that self-love is the best love. That marked the beginning of my natural hair journey.” – Taiwo
JoStylin, also Nigerian, has been mentioned on here for her gorgeous, long kinky hair. Her YouTube channel contains tons of useful videos on hair care, many of which I have watched more than once. She also has a few vlogs on her life in Turkey and her move to Ghana.
Next is our very own BGLH contributor, Ijeoma of KlassyKinks. She is Igbo having been born in Nigeria and raised in the United States. Her YouTube channel covers many hair-related topics but mostly touches upon hair styles and her own experience as a natural, particularly as a kinky sistah.
Last but not least, is Chiaka, an Igbo born in the United Kingdom. She shares amazing hair style tutorials – a few of which have been posted in our natural styles series – on her channel. You can also find more of her looks on Instagram: @chiakavalentina.
