Harsh Chemicals VS Natural

I suggest using products that you understand most of the ingredients on the list. Mineral oil, petroleum base products is not your friend. They cover the hair shaft instead of penetrating it and not giving it the nutrients it needs. Coconut oil, Jojoba, castor oil, Shea butter, their molecules are  small enough to penetrate the shaft and feed your hair.

For curly hair, sodium laureth and sulfates does nothing for your hair other than giving the shampoo the lathering effect we have come to believe cleans our hair. Lets just stay away from anything that ends in “tate’ , it’s usually a chemical that will not be kind to your body and sneak up on you later along the line.

Hello World

I started this blog because I wanted to talk about hair and all things natural beauty. I’m a Stylist/ cosmetologist and I want to talk about hair in its natural state and help you embrace what you have naturally. Enhance what you have and wear it with pride.

I’m talking about my curly peeps, out there, my beautiful kinks, my dreadlock kings and queens, divas, gentle man and my fierce woman. We all get to the point where we are tired of fighting the curl, the naps, the kinks and want to give in and say cut it, relax it, shave it…”, “Just give something new”.

I believe I can do that, give you something new. whether its a new cut, style, color, but I am going to pursue every possible angle without having to put harsh chemicals on you head or skin.

Let me help you embrace yourself, embrace the curl, embrace the kinks and stop fighting it and in return you will love your hair just the way it is , naturally.
