        Hi Kara, have you been natural all your life, if not why did you choose to return back to your natural tresses? Yes I have been natural all my life. I think I was lucky enough to have, people who had a positive attitude towards natural hair around me. I used to blow dry my hair a lot and frequently flat iron. When I started on my journey to healthy natural hair family and friends were very supportive. The only thing they would joke about is how often I was messing with my hair and the amount of products I used to buy.       Has being natural dispelled any myths you previously had of ‘black

  • Tip Tuesday: Ingredients…get to know them

    INGREDIENTS

          It’s Tuesday and I’m back with another tip for you. This week I wanted to briefly talk about this crazy phrase I’ve heard many ladies say “If I can’t pronounce it, it can’t be good for my hair.” or better yet “If I can’t eat it, it can’t be good for my hair”     Come on ladies, really? lol! Something I tell people embarking on a healthy hair journey is to research research research. Just because you can’t pronounce the word doesn’t automatically mean it’s a bad ingredient. Take this for instance - Rosmarinus Officinalis, Butyrospermum Parkii, Althaea Officinalis, Cymbopogon Flexuosus and Persea Gratissima oil is just: Rosemary, Shea butter,  marshmallow root, lemongrass and avocado oil Most of the

    I’m sure many of you have seen her amazing works of art. Today I catch up with the beautiful & talented artist Keturah Ariel     How long have you been painting for? I have been painting for almost ten years now.

It was extremely unexpected, I typically post my paintings and drawings on tumblr, facebook, etc… But for whatever reason people really responded to that particular image. I’m not sure why things happen the way they do, but everything happens

          Have you been natural all your life, if not why did you choose to return back to your natural tresses?   No, I have not been natural my whole life. I decided go to back to the natural world a year after I shaved my head. I then decided to get extensions to help me along with the grow out. I wore extensions for a about another year. End of 2011 is when I knew it was time to let it all out.   How did family & friends react to this decision?   My friends and family have been very supportive of my decision, many of them even commenting saying this is my best hair
