Big shout out to Sandberry on the NC forums for introducing me to this YouTube channel.
It’s hosted by Natasha (Mane Moves TV) and Yardley (The Coil Review). The goal of the series is to help both transitioners and naturals overcome hairstyling challenges.
Both ladies exude confidence and charisma while hosting the show and rocking their fly, natural hairstyles.
In their premiere series, you’ll meet Aisha.
Fresh off her last relaxer (literally, it’s been days) but she’s ready to begin her natural hair journey. Like many new transitioners, she’s concerned about finding appropriate hairstyles for work.
Can you relate?
Watch as Yardley and Natasha dole out sound advice on self confidence while transitioning, and you’ll get to peep Aisha’s new transitioning style.
And don’t forget to check out three-year transitioner, Demica who’s on a quest for the perfect twist out after a few failed attempts.
If you can’t view the video above, watch it on the blog and don’t forget to subscribe to Make Me a Naturalista on YouTube!

I have not been successful completely transitioning because of style options. My objective is strictly no more chemicals in my hair because I have very fine hair. I’d prefer to still wear my hair straight. My hair is currently a little longer than pixie length, which is how I wear my hair when permed. I’m not fond of braids, twists, locks, extensions, pretty much most protective styles recommended, but know I’m supposed to avoid heat. I like big hair styles (twist outs-braid outs), but again my hair is too short for that. That also eliminates buns and updos. In the summer I just roll it w/ tiny satin covered rollers and air dry it in a curly fro. But having fine hair I have to manipulate my hair EVERYDAY to maintain a style. But come winter time I can’t pull off a curly fro with wearing caps and hoods crushing my hair. Not liking any other styles I’d either do a pixie wig or slap the perm back in.
