Defying Disability and Defining Dreams

“I grew up always wanting to model and act, but I was always told it wouldn’t be an avenue for me.” Women of color find that brands haven’t always taken the initiative to represent them and their dollar when it comes to marketing and promoting their products. It always seems to be more of a hassle, and now that we’ve become more visible in marketing and branding, the only place we can go from here is up. Our Funky Junky Feature for this month is one of those women. Tatiana is a gorgeous, thriving model and actress living the life Read More

But this article isn’t about them! I just want to share how I keep my own hair Read More

Are You Conditioning Enough?

As we begin to transition into summer weather, a lot of us naturalistas find it fitting to rejuvenate our curls for the heat ahead. It’s extremely important to prepare our curls for the (new) stress they’re about to endure in the summer months, and it’s necessary to switch up or add to our routines. One way to do that is by deep conditioning. Deep conditioning is important because…well…life happens. Our hair is constantly exposed to sunlight, humidity, moisture, and other elements. Not to mention, we just do stuff to it — color it, blow dry it and sometimes straighten it with Read More

When Life Gives You Flowers, Put Them In Your Hair!

Being a woman in this day and age requires a lot of internal strength. Women are required to know themselves, know the world and know that beauty is coveted but not required.

Everything,” she said. “We are Read More
