Twisted: 5-Day Pictorial
There are rare moments when photographs convey the narrative infinitely better than written or spoken word. This is such a moment. Photos were taken at the end of each day. In instances where Nia had practice or a game, she “pineappled” her hair for the event. Her nighttime routine consisted of a loose “pineapple” and tying her […]
Our Sons: Little, Big, Young or Grown … He’s All About His Hair, Too!
Admittedly, as women, we’re so keenly focused on our hair journey we neglect to recognize the journey isn’t exclusively our own. Natural hair care isn’t gender specific. It’s a concern for men as well.

A Twist on Twists
Every now and again daughter opts for two-strand twists instead of her trusty go-to box braids. They’re quick, easy and do not require an entire Sunday to complete. Besides these chunky twists are indeed a cute look on her thick hair. Typically, Nia Imani elects to rock this twisted style, strands dangling from under a […]
Would You Consider A Change In . . .
It’s so easy to get locked into one way of doing, seeing, thinking, and even being because we believe there exists no viable reason to fix that which is not broken since the current way continues to serve us and has done so for so long for so many. Too often the common responses offered […]
Evolution of Wash Day & A Giveaway
I love change … evolution, the growth or development from what was once considered the norm. It is truly a freeing and also gratifying experience, especially when it happens under your nose with little-in-stature-individuals entrusted to your care for a time, e.g. walking unassisted, feeding themselves, tying their own shoes, dressing themselves, reading and writing, formulating […]
