Top 5 Best & Worst Hair YouTube Gurus (Full lace Wigs, Half Wigs, Bulks of Hair)

Even though I do not wear wigs like I used to I still look at the videos and hair sites just to get inspired or if I’m bored, etc. These few Youtube gurus are the in my opinion according to their honesty/sincerity, amount of reviews on hair and versatility. The other Youtube Gurus are the worst in according to the depth of info, honesty, originality and sincerity to their subscribers.Jam Poet

Top 6* Best YouTube Gurus for Hair (I added one more person)

  1. thomasadrianna: This girl does some great reviews on half wigs, full lace, weave, tips on how to make wigs…everything. I love her and she’s a little cutie pie. I think she is adorable. She is definitely worth subscribing to. (
  2. PhillyzJamPoet….ever since April (Muffinsismylovers) came out with a video about VixenLaceWigs giving bad customer service to their clients on her old channel. Philly has been giving the 100% truth or “spilling the tea” about how she feels with her wigs she reviews. She doesn’t sugar coat it. Now I understand in the past how she felt sympathy for some of the people who sent her hair and didn’t want to bash them. Sometimes you have to go through things to get you to the point where you say,”alright, no more…I’m giving the complete honest truth even if people disagree”. You can tell that she is sincere and cares about her subscribers. It’s not just about reviewing hair. I like that quality in her. (
  3. twinkeez2003, I know the title says top 5 but I had to squeeze twinkeez in after I stumbled upon her. I love this woman. She does reviews, reviews and more reviews. Clean, straight forward, very helpful. Love it. (
  4. AFRICANEXPORT: She has a nice variety of videos going from reviews on half wigs to reviews of full lace wigs, going natural and natural hair styles then hauls. I really enjoy watching her and even though I don’t wear wigs like I used to I still like watching her reviews on them when I feel like seeing how some half wigs work. (
  5. Fabulasityisme: I know this may come as a shocker because some people consider this Youtube guru fake but you have to give her props, she is always on point with her hair and make up. What got her on this list is that in  one of her video she willingly admitted that her subbies were not getting the same quality hair and said she wouldn’t suggest ordering from the company. Props to her for honesty. Its rare these days. She also has a variety of videos with hauls, make up and how to’s. (
  6. Scorpioqueen02, I searched my whole youtube history to find this girl. I like her reviews she has a lot of reviews on half wigs that have helped me decide in the past what I want to purchase so with that she is top 5. (

Top 5 Worst YouTube Gurus for Hair

  1. Ateyaaa…Goodness where do I start with this woman? For one she has the loudest and most annoying voice ever, every time I view her video I have to turn down the volume. Two, She barely posts videos about hair anymore. I think she uses the audience she has to promote other things which is fine but you know that’s not what everyone is there for. They are there for the hair reviews. Three, she doesn’t give an honest opinion. There are never any cons with her hair reviews even when its obvious that it’s not that good. Like for instance when she reviewed hair (Janet Moroccan hair) that she got done at a salon. It was so obvious that the hair didn’t blend right but she just faked it and all the sudden in another video called she curled the hair and cut it ( Goodness gracious just tell the truth. It didn’t blend right so you had to fix it! (
  2. Muffinsismylovers is the second worst Youtube Guru on my list because back when muffins had her old channel she used to show everything she did with the wigs and I was a huge fan. From her opening the package, struggling to cut the lace, putting the wig on and blending her hair. Now in her videos one second she shows you the wig then POW the wig is magically on, hair blended and everything. You don’t get to see anything else, just how nice she looks wearing the wig. I don’t know about you but if I’m going to be purchasing a $200+ wig I want to see every detail. Her videos also have been so…cliche to me. They look just like all of the other Youtube gurus videos now. She doesn’t do any real talk videos or anything anymore. The old April I knew is gone. Don’t get me wrong, she does good reviews still and she is honest about the hair she receives but her videos have changed a lot. (
  3. MontanaDeleon1: A lot of people may know who she is and a lot of people do not like her for being “fake” and approving only good comments on her videos. She used to show her boobs and booty on the internet for money but now she is retired from internet porn and is a Youtube Guru. The only reason she made it up here is because I saw a video recently where she tried to rip off her subscribers by saying she would sell a bulk of weave for $800 to $1000, are you serious?!?!?! Never in life. I mean I understand you have to profit from it too but really, don’t try to scam people when you know they can get it cheaper while you’re getting it for free. (
  4. Beautybyjj: Now this girl is gorgeous  she looks like Ciara and her hair is the BOMB DOT COM. Thats actually the only reason I started watching her videos Other than that, NO. Most of her recent reviews are on hauls, makeup, etc but she got most of her subbies by doing hair tutorials. I know this because that is where most of her views are. Her reviews are like any other regular reviews on hair. Just like many other YouTube gurus she is the one receiving free hair while the actual consumers get crap. She does not stick up for her subbies either or admit that she is aware people have been receiving bad hair. Me no likey at all. (
  5. PhillyDiva19154 is on my worst Youtube Guru list because I swear she wears the same hair style ALL THE TIME.. If you’re going to be a hair guru switch it up for us! Let us see what you’re working with! Other than that I like her and her nose. (

So thats my opinion of the best and the worst Youtube hair gurus. If anyone has any opinions on it post a comment I would like to hear every and anything anyone has to say 🙂


Things I Have Learned From Going Natural

59057_497306143633772_510554081_nI just wanted to share a few things I never knew or realized during my natural journey….this isn’t EVERYTHING I learned but its just a few things that come to mind now..

  1. The reason that I used to get relaxers was because I did not know how to maintain my hair in its natural state.
  2. My hair type, 4c…and it has small curls that I love!
  3. I can rock my hair without a relaxer and still look cute.
  5. Going natural has allowed me to embrace more things about myself other than hair.
  6. You have to be have some back bone if you’re going to do the big chop. Even if you wear wigs like me, the people who find out about your hair or finally see it, may not accept it and will show it.
  7. Never take advice from someone that has ONLY gotten relaxers all their life.
  8. Never give into peer pressure. Going natural is a decision..don’t let someone else but yourself influence the change if you decide you no longer want to be natural.
  9. There are thousands..maybe millions of black women who have gone natural and some of them are/were around me.
  10. A lot of black women don’t know the joy of going natural and some just don’t want to.
  11. I never knew how important deep conditioning and moisturizing was….actually I never KNEW what it was until I went on this journey.
  12. The people in your life who do not accept your methods of going natural
  13. Men always complain about weave and not being able to touch your hair but even being natural I STILL don’t want anyones hands in my hair lol



The first time I had heard of going natural was online a couple of years ago…I forgot where exactly I was reading from…I Natural Hairbelieve it was on a forum, a woman was discussing chopping off her hair again and starting over. She mentioned using olive oil for her hair and skin…I have to admit to, when I first read this I didn’t put much thought into it except it was odd.

Fast forward a couple years later, I discovered  the blackhairmedia forum. How? Well I was looking for some good weave lol. Believe it or not, I am like a hair fein…I’ll spend hours on the internet literally reading reviews, watching youtube videos and reading forum discussions about products, etc…it just sparks my interest. So anyway, I spent like a few months just going through blackhairmedia archives and discovering the Chinese vendors to go for good hair..Holly, Kevin…and how american vendors are basically rip offs because they order their hair from the Chinese just to sell it at a higher price. If you watched the movie, Good Hair, then you’ll know what I’m talking about.

So all these months I’m on the forum it never struck me to go to the Natural Hair Care side of the forum until one day someone had mentioned taing care of their hair underneath their wig…so I thought about it, looked at my overly dry hair and began my research on taking care of my hair which led to me learning about natural vs relaxer and my ambition to want to grow long natural hair.

When i think about it now, there have been sooooo many hints throughout life that would have gave me the lift of having natural hair sooner but because of stereotypes and what women/men (not only African American, people of other ethnicities think it too) who think “relaxed hair” is the only way for good hair, imprint into their children and peers mind…it never crossed my mind until a year ago.

I would look at girls of other races and think…wow they’re hair is so beautiful and naturally healthy while I have to get relaxers and deal with my nappy edges. I remember meeting a black girl in my gym class when I first entered High school…we were in the locker room and her hair was wet because we had swimming class. For some reason we got to talking about hair and I mentioned something about her and she responded “This IS my real hair”. I was speechless…never had I seen a girl with the same skin tone as me with long hair that reached her hips!! Now that I think about it, her hair was natural at that. If that wasn’t an obvious sign then I don’t know what was lol.

Another hint I had about the natural world was my aunt! She would always say to my grandmother (who always has her kids at her house) that she doesn’t want her children’s hair relaxed, she wants it to be NATURAL. I remember thinking how dumb it was that she didnt want their hair relaxed. The reason why I thought that was because their always and still does…LOOK A HOT MESS. I mean hair sticking out everywhere..the oldest one has some breakage in her hair and she hardly ever has her hair know how your braids look when you leave them in longer than what your suppose to? Thats how hers looks. And the funny thing about it is…both my grandmother and aunt have a license from hair school. What a waste of education?

Well I better stop before I get off track. So thats how I discovered “going natural” through blackhairmedia.



So I opened this blog so I could have a new start….I’ve always connected my name with blogs, pages, etc…but this time this is a little sensitive for me…my real hair. Why is this sensitive? Well because no one but me sees it. I wear wigs, weave, ponytails, maybe 2 or 3 times a lace front so many times that no one knows exactly how my real natural hair looks. So I’m hear to share…this is me. When I’m ready and my hair is at a confident length for me…I’ll reveal myself but until this…just call me Jazzie 🙂

Welcome to my blog.
