Daughter’s been rocking box braids for much of this winter and although her hair benefitted from the protective style Nia, understandably, has grown a tad bored with the look. This past weekend she requested a change. So after taking out her braids (a Friday evening and all-day Saturday affair), we brewed some tea (sounds ominous, […]

What we actually received wasn’t that bad, […]
