My Story

Hi, I'm Athena Padilla; Self Proclaimed Curly Hair Specialist, Ingredient Analyzer,  Handmade Custom Product Manufacturer, and Manager of NF10 Naturals.  I started my curly hair journey in 2017 on YouTube after becoming very popular in Facebook curly hair communities.  I put together a repertoire of teaching and styling videos that can be followed along with by the Curly Hair Novice or the Experienced Curly Sue in their healthy hair journey.  Soon, I discovered that my journey would not be easy, as many allergies and sensitives developed.  I tried and tested many product brands, but sadly found none that fully met my needs or satisfied my high expectations. With inspired direction, I scoured the internet for knowledge in the field of DIY cosmetics, and got to work at creating my own brand of hypoallergenic hair and skin care that offers custom options for each hair type and lifestyle, not just curly hair. Now, in just a few years and hundreds of successful Personalized Consultations later, NF10 Naturals has a full line of Fabulous Products that work miracles when incorporated with my Proprietary Protein/Moisture Point System, Only True All-In-One Products, Mix-In options, Unique Styling Routines, and Teaching Methods. I desire nothing more than to bring a smile to all that come my way, to help everyone truly understand their value, and to find efficient guidance as they sojourn through life's lessons.

Most Importantly

Life is all about finding true joy as we learn and journey back to our Maker, the Father.  Life was not easy for Christ, and it's not meant to be easy for anyone.  Our challenges are meant to strengthen and refine us.  If we take to heart this principle and the following words below, we will find refuge from our storms, we will find joy in the journey, and we will find our way courageously back to our Father's Home in Heaven, where our joy will increase and become eternal:

“Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. “Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; …

“For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

Bible/Matthew 11:28–30
