I started out as a regular cosmetologist doing hair, as the love for my hair grew through going natural and I wanted all my clients to go natural. But that was not the trend at the time so I quit doing relaxers and went to a natural hair salon (Taliah Waajid Natural hair care center) to doing only natural hair. I loved it and mastered all the braiding and natural hair techniques. Then I started teaching other stylists how to care for their client's natural hair at The World Natural Hair Shows. As more people started going natural, I realized that they needed the correct information about their hair and that's when I wrote: Natural Hair Quest; the book. To expand my audience even further, I am happy to have an informative television show about natural hair from a professional view available to women all over the world, through Natural Hair Quest...The TV Show!
And there is so much more to come.....Stay Tuned!
My vision is to educate, excite and inspire women and girls of color all over the world about their natural hair, that it is beautiful and teach them to love their hair while being able to take care of it with out chemicals.
