She started her YouTube channel in August of 2009 and her very first video showcased her natural hair journey. She didn’t plan on keeping up with a YouTube channel when she first began.

The positive feedbacks from the natural hair community made her want to continue to make videos and inspire women everywhere. Now 6 years later, she has over 650,000 YouTube subscribers to her natural hair care channel, Naptural85.

If you were wondering what her term “naptural” means, here is that definition for you, found in a recent interview Whitney did.

Whitney: ““Naptural” hair is hair without boundaries or rules. It does what it wants in the moment, and it never apologizes.”

On her channel she offers DIY hair tips, natural hairstyles and how to achieve the looks, and even recipes on how to make the best natural hair product concoction. Also on her channel you can find gift giveaway videos, style and fashion videos, and even videos reviewing everyday products and hair products.

You can visit her Naptural85 channel here. Not too long ago she started another YouTube channel, found here, and titled DearNaptural85.

This channel strays away from the natural hair theme and focuses a lot more on being a mother, wife, and her daily life with her family. There are videos showing family outings, recordings of silly and cute things Olivia does, and videos showing the joys of parenting.

Whether you are watching her natural hair channel, her family channel, or both, you can definitely see how Whitney is an awesome hair inspiration and role model.
