deNaturalistas (Delaware Naturalistas) was founded in the summer of 2011 by Tywanda Howie and Latoya Watson to fill a noticeable void in Delaware's natural hair community. It has since expanded to also address health and fitness. deNaturalistas utilizes events and social media as platforms for education. Since it’s inception, it has garnered over 1,500 members in its Facebook group, over 650 twitter followers, and over 300 attendees to Naturally ReDefined: Delaware’s First Natural Hair Expo. deNaturalistas also works with national and local companies who serve as vendors and sponsors.
