My name is Aleka, known here as NatuallyACT! Naturally ACT translates into Naturally Aleka C. Thrash. I’m a Photographer, Natural Hair Enthusiast, Blogger, and Vlogger! My hobbies include reading, graphic design, and painting.

I started my natural hair journey in 2005 and spent years learning, researching, trying products and even helping fellow naturals learn how to better take care of there hair. I originally wanted to start share my journey in 2008 however let fear keep me from sharing my experiences except for on my Facebook page. On March 21, 2015 I had the opportunity to teach a natural hair segment at the Confident Living. A seminar dedicated to empowering entrepreneurs to get unstuck and unlock their dreams. My segment at Confident Living was so well received that I decided to launch my own Natural Hair ~ How-to workshops and events.

I’m looking forward to sharing my journey and getting to know you!
