About me

Hmm I am sauntering through my 30's with grace. Loving my son, husband and the cat. Embarking on this Hair journey has made me reflect on more than hair ..personal attitude, style, culture, family, community...so much more. Damn hair has power!

 

What I hope to get from this journey is ofc healthy beautiful hair. But also knowledge of so much that I as a black woman do not know about being a black woman. We are complex creatures,

 

Hair type 3b/3c/4a

that system soo does not work cause my hair varies from spot to spot.
