Hands down, I can admit that my life and my body today is better than ever before. I truly believe that it all started when I decided to return natural. It was during this journey when my eyes were opened to all sorts of problems in my life and this world. How we were being brainwashed into certain looks (weaves, straight hair) and even lifestyle and health choices (processed foods, fast foods, vaccines, education).

My outlook on the world and my own life have changed drastically -- it’s crazy how one concept such as growing out natural hair can have major implications on how you live out the rest of your life. You can say I went all in to the world of natural and what it stands for.

About Safiya Elle


Since 2008, I have been embarking on a journey to all things natural. I'm completely chemical-free (body and hair) and because of this, I was able to avoid the big chop, restore my natural curl patterns, grow my hair to tail bone length and clear my chronic acne. Today, I'm an organic vegan, natural health expert, DIY herbalist, DIY beauty, blogger and shop owner. I enjoy helping others with starting and continuing their journeys to natural hair and skin care, and hopefully an overall healthy lifestyle. On my blog, I share health and natural beauty tips, as well as delicious smoothie and meal recipes (I'm all about flava!) that help to promote healthy skin, hair and body from within. Why not maintain our beauty, as well as our youth? Health is the answer!

Yes hunni! This article is totally me.. I went natural by default – rheumatoid arthritis medicine caused breakage and balding.. I’m in the infant stages of cleaner eating habits and exercise but I feel better after one month.. Plus, I use my aunts’ Bibis Homemade Products, LLC (natural body products)..

I totally agree, I did the same things as you have and I enjoy a much healthier lifestyle. I enjoy my natural hair more than every and this journey has led me other things such as organic foods, organic hair products and making my own at home. Great article. Thanks for sharing your experience!

I eat better, drink more water and am more active than I once was. I’ve cut back on my use of chemical cosmetics and body products, preferring to use the same oils for my skin that I do for my hair. I am more conscious of the types of foods that I eat but I can’t see myself eliminating meat from my diet. I am carnivore to the core.
