    IMG_0949strip 2strip 2strip 2strip 2Wunmi Akinlagun a natural hair & beauty enthusiast created her vlogging platform WomanInTheJungle on YouTube back in late 2010  to document the healthy hair journey and beauty finds of a woman living in London.

    The name Woman In The Jungle was a metaphor that was quite fitting for Wunmi’s situation at the time. A woman in her mid 20’s navigating her way through work, love & life in the inner city of London, a concrete Jungle. Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on what side of the fence you sit Woman In The Concrete Jungle was too long to use as a YouTube user. Fast forward to today with over 50,000 followers across all platforms, WITJ has definitely become a destination within the UK for natural hair and brown beauty community with BlackHair naming it one of UK’s 5 top go to places for natural hair.
