About me


Angie Galván-Rodríguez, M. Ed

Educator. Blogger. Founder.  Influencer. Writer



Dominican born, Puerto Rico and Chicago raised blogger Anyiné (ann-yee-neh) “Angie” Galván-Rodríguez, identifies herself as an Afro-Latina.  Her journey as a blogger began in 2013 when she decided to share her experience as she transitioned from relaxed hair to fully natural hair curls. What began as a “naturalista” bilingual blog about her natural hair journey inspired by her daughter and hair product reviews, flourished into a pathway to embracing and confirming her identity as an Afro-Latina.  Her blog is a personal exploration of her personal experience of being an Afro-Latino/a in the USA.  In addition to sharing hair product reviews for natural curly hair and encouraging more Latinas to go natural, she continues to share her experiences through an Afro-Latina lens.  Ultimately, she hopes to encourage self-love among Latina girls and women of African descent in the USA and Latin America by embracing their natural beauty and natural curls, kinks and coils.

Anyiné is a writer at heart and a teacher by day. With a B.A. in Spanish literature and Latin America studies as well as a Master’s in Education, she is able to share her passion of Latin American Culture and the Spanish language with students from various backgrounds.  When she is not teaching, spending time with her loved ones or writing for her blog. She is currently working on a project which soon will be her first book published.

  1. Hey Angie!

    I’m really excited about your blog. I was admiring your recent IG pix when I took a closer look at your bio and realized you were a blogger! I’ve been sitting on my domain for two years with plans of blogging.

    You’ve have totally inspired me to kick off KashRules.com before year end.

    Now that I know about your blog, I will be certain to support and spread the word!

    Best Wishes,

  2. OK… I’ve been looking for SOOO long for a hair blog from someone who has hair just like me. I’m afro-latina as well, but lots of the people I’ve found have a different pattern than me… Then I happened upon your site.

    I was actually looking for people with my hair type who have consistently been using Moroccanoil products to see the change in their hair. I went to the hair salon for the first time in ages and the stylist used their product line in my hair, so I was curious what it would look like with longer use. I’ve also landed on Mielle Organics products and I LOOVE what it does to my curls. Whats your opinion on both brands?

    Needless to say I’m so glad I landed on your page and hope to see more!
