Hi there! I hope you can say, like me, “I love my own hair,” and truly mean it when you say it.
I’m on a quest to help you care for and love your natural hair. My personal transition has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. No one else possesses my or your style or unique hair texture — so that makes us designer’s originals!
I absolutely love to write about what I've learned on this natural hair journey and I pray you will find it as a source of motivation and continued inspiration. I've been hanging in five years strong, but I know from my personal experience, dealing with "hair" day in and out can also be a source of frustration from time to time, especially in its natural state.
I want you to be encouraged and continue on the journey. Check in on this site from time to time and let me know how I can help you. Happy Trails Divas!

It's used today, and was used then, to treat lice and scalp conditions such as itchiness … [Read More...]
Fortunately I've learned to never say never. Because, after all, who'd think I'd be writing a post on how much I enjoyed using Sulfur 8 as a naturalista? Turns out, whereas we've mainly known it's hair and scalp oil, they've recently updated their line to include natural hair products - for locs, twists and braids. I was recently having some "scalp issues, with lots of itching and based on my … [Read More...]
