About me

“This is a creative space for all the great, random ideas that pop into my head.”


I’m  J’Nai. I’m 26-years-old and a New Orleans native.

I started my natural hair journey in July 2012. I started The Natural & The City in January 2015 as a way to share my ideas and discoveries about natural hair because I was always getting questions from friends and family about my hair. I love finding and sharing hair tips/inspiration, especially on my social media and Youtube channel. My blog isn’t just limited to hair; I love sharing outfit ideas, pictures of all the fun events around the city of New Orleans, and, fun drink recipes I’ve learned or created as a bartender at Kingfish in the French Quarter. When I’m not blogging or studying, I like to volunteer at The Learning Lab, knit & sew, and chat with my curl friends about hair and tea over brunch or drinks at any of the wonderful cocktail bars in New Orleans.

You will rarely find me without a notebook. I carry at least one everyday to collect my arbitrary thoughts throughout the day for reflection. Arbitrary thoughts become analyzed ideas. Analyzed ideas become blog posts to share with the world. From my fro to yours.
