Why We Started
Lively Naturale was created by my sister (Genna) and me (Samantha) back in 2020. Since we are 9 and half years apart in age, we definitely see things differently. Especially when it comes to our hairstyles, hair techniques, or products we like to use. For example, I often do twist-outs or braid outs which leave my hair really curly. So I usually like to use hair creams, leave-ins, or twisting creams as a way to keep my hair moisturized during the week. Whereas my sister prefers to wear her hair in more protective styles like Lemonade braids, Crochet, Knotless braids, or two-strand twists. So for her, she likes to use oil serums or greases as a way to keep her hair moisturize while she’s rocking those hairstyles. I can go down a list of things we do differently. However, what I can say is we both agreed that when we transitioned from using chemical-based products to raw organic natural products that we saw a difference in our hair. As a result, we thought about sharing our experiences and creating a platform where people will not only obtain informative content but hear our stories in addition to other readers’ experiences throughout their hair journey.
