I’m Toia, a fun-loving, 30-something native of Barbados, W.I., a Brooklyn girl and natural hair enthusiast with a flair for fashion. I am also wife to a loving husband of nine years and mom to a beautiful little boy!
My love for hair started at a very young age when I’d watch the stylists at the local salons that my mom and I visited regularly. Between acquiring my License in Cosmetology in 2004 and embracing my natural hair texture in 2009, I was driven to learn about the hair I was born with, inspire others and share what I’ve learned on my journey.
About the Blog!
This all began as an extension of my Facebook fan page, then “Toia’s Natural Hair Affair”, where I’d track my natural hair journey and share inspirational photos.
In case you were wondering where “ToBNatural” came from, we simply attached my first name and last initial to the word “natural” (teehee) which totally worked as a little wordplay based on my desire to encourage women “to be natural”. See what I did there? 😉
After writing weekly hair tips on Tumblr for some time, I gave birth to LuvToBNatural.com in August 2012 to share my love of all things natural hair and fashion! The site has since transitioned to include my life as a stay-at-home mom and lifestyle features. I hope you enjoy.
Thanks so much for joining me!
