Just a few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending the Naturalista Hair Show in Silver Spring, MD, and can I say that it was EXCELLENT! Check out some of the pics (and my video) below.

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 5 popular new Hair Color Trends for Spring-Summer 2014
Chest nut Brown-brown palette
Spicy Ginger-red palette
Apricot- golden blond palette
Copper penny- copper
Brown sugar- blond
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.

Happy New Year!
I write this knowing that wherever you are – you are happy, you are loved, you are beautiful!
2013 has ended for all of us and as with every ending, there is a new beginning.
2014 is a year to let go of whatever fear may be stopping us and to truly EXPRESS ourselves! A lesson that 2013 brought me was that emotions are not meant to be fought or hidden, but to be expressed. The same goes with ourselves – our thoughts, our creativity, our personality, our talents, our feelings, wishes, and dreams. We are meant to express all, not only part, of ourselves!
Whether you are about to make the BIG CHOP, let your hair grow out, transition to natural, or cut your locks/Sisterlocks™ into a new do, GO FOR IT! Whatever you feel on the inside, let your hair express it on the outside.
Our hair is one of many ways to express ourselves so if you’re thinking about going for a long walk or a run, taking an art class, perfecting your cooking skills, or spending more time with family, then do it! Don’t just hold the thought in your head, go out and EXPRESS IT!
Taking my own advice for 2014, be on the lookout for more natural hair blogs, workshops and events, as well as new ventures from Natural Hair Journey and the Natural Hair Coach. I’m certainly looking forward to expressing and sharing myself with you this coming year.
Make sure to check in and let me know how you’re expressing yourself and how I can help you make that happen.
Here’s to an Expressive New Year and an Expressive New You!
