Natural Ladies In the House

Model - Noel
Hello Natural Ladies!! My name is Noel Simone Wippler. I am 20 years old and I am born and raised in New York City. My goal is to be a Natural Hair Model. I would like to be a model and advocate natural hair and hair styles for stylists, photographers, for magazines, for hair shows, & websites. I am open to all natural hair styles and opportunities and advocating natural hair care. I would like to promote healthy hair styles for ladies aspiring to be natural. People admire my hair everywhere I go! My hair has been on a spiritual journey with me. When I had my hair relaxed since I was 6 years old with Super Relaxers, my hair would be lifeless and easily damaged. No matter how much I cared for my hair, and protected it, it would still be weak, and dry! It seemed as if I were wasting all of my money and time on my hair, and I wouldn't be content with it. So in 2009, I decided I was going to grow my relaxer out. Two years later, and I am happier than ever! I will grow my hair as long as it can go. I want to show ladies that it is possible! Would you like me to be your hair model? I would love to work for you! Contact Information: Noel S. Wippler, Email: n_wippler@yahoo.comThank You For Your Time. Peace.


I love sites that appreciate being natural and how natural is beautiful..so with that being said "I'M HAPPY TO BE NAPPY...AND FADED TIGHT"

Model - Nekesha

I am 36 years old and I have a career in social work, in addition, to being a full time mother. I work with individuals who have had their children taken away for abuse, threatened harm or neglect, in addition to, working with parents that have substance abuse issues that have also resulted in their children being removed. I have worked in this profession for over 10 years. I have been growing my locks for 11 years and I remember when I started them, there were not many encouraging sites such as your to help me with my journey. My locks are so much a part of me and who I have become. Contact:  tobesmother@comcast.net.

I was all about relaxed super straight hair. The straighter the better. I loved wigs and weaves. I mainly did quick weave bobs, or long curls. I decided to go natural because my hair looked life less and unhealthy. It wasn't growing the way I wanted it to. I had recently dyed it myself (bad idea) and it broke off really bad. I just wanted my hair to look healthy and grow which is why I decided to go natural

I didn't know what my hair would look like without being relaxed and was afraid I would go back and relax it if I couldn't take care of it. I also was worried about how my then boyfriend would react to it. He surprisingly loved it and I was really shocked by this. I decided in July 2011 that I was not going to relax my hair anymore. By August I was ready to get that Dark and Lovely in my head, but I remained strong. I was just doing wigs and extensions. Then in October of this year, I got off work one day and just decided to cut my hair! I cut off all my relaxed hair and had tight curls left. I couldn't believe it and took a picture and sent it to my boyfriend. I washed it and just wore it in a fro the next day at work. I received a lot of compliments on it. I was alittle leery because I didn't feel like a girl. But after watching youtube videos( love love love iknowlee, HUGE help to me) I started buying cute headbands and flowers(my favorite). I haven't quite mastered the two strand twist but I'm working on it. So its either in a TWA or a puff most of the time. This also gave me a chance to play up my eye makeup and wear different earrings( feathers, feathers, feathers!). When I look at myself now, I feel absolutely beautiful and I love how fast my hair is growing and how healthy it looks. Being newly natural, I enjoy the blogs and youtube videos because it gives me confidence to remain natural and be true to myself. Truely glad to have found the new me!

My favorite products: Shea Moisture Curling Smoothie..makes my hair feel really soft and healthy looking. Knot Today Leave In from Kinky Curly. Use this to detangle my hair in the shower. If though it doesn't get that tangled surprisingly. ORS Edge Control. I use this when I do my puffs. I don't like my edges looking bad and this really smoothes them down. ** Bonus- Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Conditioner...so thick and leaves my hair feeling really soft and smelling even better.  My advice for others: 
I would say just to go for it! I have gain so much confidence in myself and the woman that I have become just by the few months of me being natural. I see my mom who passed away in 2006 when I look in the mirror and I love that! If you want healthy hair that grows extremely fast(like mine has) I think going natural is the way to go. Wish I would've have cut my hair sooner!
