“Top 3” With Youtube Natural Hair Vlogger and Zumba Instructor, Ariella


1. What are your top 3 hair accessories?

Scarves, that’s it…lol. I’m not a fan of flowers or things like that.  I like to think of my hair as an accessory to my outfit all on its own.

2. What are your top 3 staple products that you could use for the rest of your life?

3. What are your top 3 tips for combating dry hair?

  • Deep Condition about once a week.
  • Do hot oil treatments about once a week, the same day as your deep condition if you want.
  • Use Unrefined Shea Butter with some kind of natural oil for braid and twist outs a few times a month.

4. What are you top 3 tips for growing out permed/relaxed hair?

  • Protective styling!!! Get some braids or Senegalese twists, such a life saver.
  • Stay away from the heat as often as possible.  I didn’t straighten my hair until almost two years of transitioning.  Resist the temptation to blend the textures by straightening.
  • I did lots of braid and twist outs during that time, to blend the textures, worked great for me.


1. What are your top 3 moisturizers?

I’m terrified of moisturizers for my face! Haha always have been.  I’ve had terrible acne since high school.  I use a cream I bought from my dermatologist.  It’s expensive but a little goes a long way and it works perfectly, it’s not oily and there’s no scent.

2. What are your top 3 face washes?

3. What are your top 3 tips for combating acne?

I’ve tried it all, my only tip is visit your dermatologist.  Best decision I’ve made in regards to my face.  As long as I use the cremes prescribed, my face is almost flawless.
