This Festive Season marks the end of the year 2014. I would love to take this chance to thank you all for the support you've given me through out the year, and for helping me grow much more in my passion for natural hair.
I'm glad to wish all Happy Holidays and a Prosperous 2015. Let the year 2015 be the year to better your Natural Hair Journey!
Spring is finally here! After such a long winter, many of us are looking for a change. Coloring our hair is one of fun ways to spice up your look for the new season and I wanted to share some information to help you along the color journey.
Hair color can damage hair if left in too long or not washed out well. Hair color in the store sold in boxes has almost 80% ammonia while professional hair color such as The Color line by Paul Mitchell, Rusk, and several others have as low as 8% ammonia. It is very important to follow color directions especially if you are doing it yourself. Conditioning your hair is a MUST especially if you have bleached your hair. Deep conditioner are required within 2-4weeks of coloring. Using a color shampoo is a great way to boost your existing color without having to color your hair.
Henna is known for being a natural color but may end up leaving the natural hair feeling really dry. Conditioner can help add moisture.
The best, safest, and least expensive way for natural hair to lighten is fresh lemon juice spray in you hair and sit in the sun. FYI slow process but you get the results.
Switch up your look!!

The mohawk is a popular style right now and natural hair allows me to have fun as I recreate the style for my clients. When you think of the "mohawk," fun, funky, and free come to mind! No two heads of hair are exactly alike and so I try to capture each client's personality and lifestyle.
Check out the two styles below. One is "loose" natural hair and the other is SisterlocksTM.
As we near the end of February, I wanted to take some time to talk about what this month represents. As you all know, February is Black History Month. It's a month when, here in America, we celebrate and pay tribute to African-Americans who made a huge impact not only on the Black community but all of American and world society. Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglas, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. just to name a few. We also use this month to celebrate the vibrant and passionate customs that make up Black/African-American culture. Many of us often use this as a time to reconnect to our roots, a time to show our people some real LOVE!
Speaking of love, Valentine's Day was February 14th and its a celebration of romantic love. A day when we take the time to do something extra special for our special someone.
In two days, this month will end, but I challenge you not to let your love end. Your love of self, your love of others, and your love of your culture. You are beautiful, he/she and they are beautiful, we are beautiful.
