Brooklyn Aphrodite
Naturalista of the Week

Who is Brooklyn Aphrodite?

Brooklyn Aphrodite calls herself a journeyer. Two years ago, she launched a blog, AphroditeKinks.com, to showcase her natural hair journey but later felt that she needed to do something more. This was when she decided to focus on overall well-being and embracing inner and outer beauty – chock-full of its ups and downs. It encompasses a small online boutique AphroditeKinks.bigcartel.com to  help women to continue to believe they are goddesses with all of their kinks.

As her name claims, she lives in Brooklyn, New York with her tight-knit Caribbean family who is experiencing greatness together.

“I allow myself to journey in my given light and sharing it when I can with those I meet or those I connect with through my blog,” she says.

She loves to volunteer with people in her neighborhood. For 2014, she has declared well-being for herself and her nation. She believes it should be something we all continue to live by. 

How long have you been natural?

I started my transition in 2011 and finally big chopped in March 16, 2012. 

Why did you decide to go natural?

I went natural to try something new and because I was ready to make a healthier choice for my hair and body.

What is your fave styling product?

At the moment I stick to much of the Shea Moisture line and mix in some Karen's Body Beautiful to finish my styling. 

What is your fave natural hairstyle?

I love braided updo's, but my go to is usually a puff.
