Natural hair blogs have been popping up all over the net and there are a few in particular that have truly resonated with the CocoaFab team. We took a few minutes to sit down with Lauren Johnson of La Coco Bella to talk all about her blog and natural hair!
CocoaFab: What inspired you to start La Coco Bella?
Lauren: I wanted to start La Coco Bella because there were not very many natural hair resources/blog when I initially had the idea for it back in 2008. I saw need and felt I could contribute to the answer. I had already been natural for 3 years at that point and felt I gained enough knowledge, through trial and error, to be able to share what I did with my own hair. I’ve always had people stop and ask me how I took care of my natural hair so I wanted to be able to just direct people to one location—or they could opt to hear me ramble on and on about it in conversation!
Since I am a graphic designer, I created the logo, web design and everything created back in 2008 but the fear of putting myself out there to the world scared me (. In March 2012, I FINALLY built up the courage and just went for it!
