Go Natural Already- You, Your Hair, & Self Love

Owners Cat Belle and Saharah Jimenez shot by Zoa Photography
From Tanzania to the Americas, women of color are being taught how to care for, maintain, and love their own natural hair!  Self love is important and over the past decades, we (black women) through magazines, commercials, and film have been told that our hair needs to be straight for us to be considered attractive.  The hair care products that line the stores have not been those that cater to the natural texture of  black women's hair.
