Ahhhhhh the "Loc Journey." Take a long breath and put on your seat belt (because we want you to be comfortable.) And get ready for the loc journey. It is not for the faint of heart. Nor is it for punks, and it definitely isn't for...well you get me. Right?
From Tanzania to the Americas, women of color are being taught how to care for, maintain, and love their own natural hair!

You don't have to be a certain size to be sexy and fly. Be heart healthy. You don't have to have wavy, curly or straight hair in order for your hair to be considered beautiful. We're changing the narrative. Natural Beauty Organics...You were born natural.
When my daughter's Dominican grandmother asked me to make the ends of my daughter's hair straight, I always replied, "Saharah's hair is beautiful as it is and no, we won't be altering her texture.
