Meet the Editor
Where Natural Raw Beauty is Birthed.
Yolanda started out blogging in 2008. She maintains three blogs and began this one in 2011 when she discovered she was a hair junkie. Over the years, she found out that what works for someone else doesn’t necessarily work for everybody and everyone’s experience is different. She feels it’s always fun to experiment with new products and different hairstyles and encourages women to do the same.
Through trial and error, she learned to be selective about which brands to purchase and what products work best for her 4C hair type.
Throughout her hair journey, she sticks to a regular regimen and recommends that when you find a great product that works, you should not deviate from it.
She has shared her triumphs and disappointments and she’s discovered that it’s equally important to pay attention to what you put inside your body. Health and wellness, as well as diet, are the overall priority to a healthy lifestyle and a successful hair journey.
Yolanda received her A.S. degree in Liberal Arts with a concentration in Journalism from Georgia State University and received a certification in Digital Media and Design at Essex County College and continued her study in Communications Media at New Jersey Institute of Technology.
Her love for writing, fashion, and design provide a creative outlet for her to express and uplift other women to walk in their beauty and natural essence.
Yolanda enjoys connecting with her readers and actively engages with her audience on social media. In addition, she is also the designer of a t-shirt apparel brand which was birthed from her blog.
