Natural Hair Product Review: Take Command Curl Defining Crème By Curls UnLeashed

Happy Tuesday. I wanted to give you the low down on a product I tried this weekend. It’s by Curls Unleashed, which is a line of products for naturals created by ORS (formerly Organic Root Stimulator). It’s called Take Command Curl Defining Crème. This is not a new product. I’ve tried it a couple of times during my natural hair journey. I struggled to figure out how to use it best in the past so I’ve never use it consistently. I got it to work…

We Show Love Around Hair: Grand Rapids Area Natural Hair Meet-Ups & Related Events

Hair in GR, we show made love for our curlfriends. A few Sundays ago, I had the pleasure of having brunch with an incredible group of ladies.

I’m More Than A Natural Hair Enthusiast, I’m Accountable

Last night flying home to my beautiful city, Grand Rapids, MI, all I could see is opportunity and possibilities. It’s time to fulfill my purpose and this site that I captured, this picture right here, is my confirmation. My husband wants me to be prepared for the doubters, the haters, and the blockers. I’m ready to go over, under, around and through all of them with undeniable and irrefutable evidence that systems need to be changed. Questions need to be answered.  Why are black parents…

I’ve been using The Mane Choice products the last two weeks. (I’m working on my review but I haven’t had time to complete…

Who Belongs In the Natural Hair Community

I am sadden to report that there was a lot of division, backstabbing, plagerism, and hatred in the natural hair community during 2016. Everyone hasn’t experienced the love and support that I have on my hair journey. In fact, people in certain natural hair groups, blogs and pages were flat out disrespected. I witnessed more cyber-bulling last year than I personally experienced as a child and I was traumatized. I think about the insecurities I developed and can’t help but to empathize with these victims.…
