A graduate from the Natural Hair Care program at CPCC in Charlotte, NC. I specialize in natural hair care and extensions, with 10 plus years of experience in braiding. Naturally You caters to the natural hair care needs of men, women, and children. I am also a Natural Hair Care instructor who promotes healthy hair and the importance of maintaining it. My goal for each of my clients is to help them understand the history of their hair, as well as what it take to maintain the health of their natural hair while enjoying a variety of styles.

*Please, no additional guest/children when being serviced, due to limited space. I do reserve the right to reschedule/cancel appointments. In the event you do need to bring your child, which I understand, please make sure they are well mannered and respectful within my work space. In the event they are not, you may be asked to reschedule. 


*Services $75-$149 will require a $20 deposit, and those $150 and up will require a $30 deposit. For all services that require a deposit, the deposit must be paid within 24 hrs of making your appt or the appt will be canceled. (payment information below) For same day appts, deposits must be paid within an hour of making appt, or it will result in appt being canceled. 

*If you no show/cancel in less than 24 hr without notice then you will lose your non-refundable deposit. In the event you have to cancel and you notify me within 24 hrs then I'm willing to put your deposit toward the appt that you reschedule, but there will not be a refund of deposits. If you were not required to make a deposit for your service, in order to make another appt you will be required to make a deposit if you no show for the first appt. If you are more than 15 min late to your appt without notice then you will have to reschedule or be worked back in, no exceptions. If I'm not able to work you back in same-day then you will need to reschedule for another day. 

*If the service you have requested requires that you come with clean/blown out hair (clean scalp, hair clear of all products, detangled thoroughly, and blow dried) and you don't, you will be charged for that service which is $30. 

*For payments I accept cash, credit/debit card (Via Square which has a $2 processing fee) , cash app ($ShanikaMuhammad), Venmo (@Naturally_You), and Zelle.

Shanika,did a great job on my hair. She didn’t braid too tight and made my hair look neat. She’s doesn’t take too long to braid and makes you feel comfortable. I love my knotless braids.

Nneka K.
Randomly found Shanika while looking for a new hairstylist. I lost my last stylist due to a career change several months ago. However, nothing is coincidence! What seemed random really wasn't! Shanika did a great job on my hair, I was very happy! When it comes to my hair I only go by referral but everyone I knew was having the same similar stylist issue. Since I'm natural and rarely straighten my hair, I shared my concerns about heat damage and Shanika took it seriously and was very cautious. The true test would be my daughter for back to school . She is an early teen who has no interest in taking care of her hair. When Shanika was done my daughter absolutely loved her hair! Typically she won't even take care of it even after getting it done but not this time, every day she's made sure that it looked it's best, she cares! It turned out to be a fabulously motivating experience!!! Thanks Shanika!

Shanika did a wonderful job braiding my hair. It was not too tight and I was able to sleep comfortably the first night after getting my braids. I will definitely be returning.
