Natural Hair & Children - Positivity!

We are always hearing about how the media, friends and colleagues change the way we see ourselves and determine our beauty standard whether it is around our natural curly, kinky hair or dark skin.

I have tried several alternative methods of putting Marley twists in and this is the only method that did not result in the extensions either falling out or getting tangled or knotted at the base.

    DeecoilyIt’s inevitable. The last frontier of a head of healthy, natural hair – the process of going grey.  We all have to face it. It will happen. All of us who are heading for a “mature” age, and even some of our younger women who have that early-graying gene, or the stress-caused change have to face it, though earlier than the rest of us.
