Texture Talk Event Photos!

The Texture Talk event was a huge success!  The event was co-hosted by myself and Cassidy of Natural Selection blog, and was at the beautiful Omni Hotel in SF.  So many beautiful women, children and men came to the event, to join in on the celebration; and to also see the new products by Beautiful Textures. Thank you again to the volunteers, Beautiful Textures representatives and for all the gorgeous guest. And a special thanks to the Vendors - Andy Drew, Fatemeh Jewelry and Natural Girls United!; and to Felicia  Leatherwood for her participation in the Q&A panel and for her scalp analysis for some of the lucky guest at the event. It was my first big event as a Host, and I could not of been  happier with how everything turned out. I am look forward to more events in the Bay Area. Thank you to everyone that attended the event, and I will see you at the next natural hair event!

Hair Model for Loctician Ansylla

I had a great time being a hair model for Natural Hair Stylist, Ansylla's My Hairitage Workshop. It took place in the Bay Area,  on February 2012. Ansylla traveled in from Maryland, to show local locticians how to create various loc styles, no matter what length the hair. As the instructor, she was very knowledgeable and has a very light touch. No matter what hair style she demonstrated on my hair, I never felt any discomfort or painful pulling. With each style coming out with great detail and perfection, the fact that I did not feeling any pain on my scalp was amazing. Ansylla is a talented loctician and a great teacher. I look forward to seeing her again at  future events. To read more about Ansylla, go to My Hairitage Holistic Hair Care. For the next scheduled workshop, check out August 2012 My Hairitage Holistic Hair Care Workshop on Eventbrite.

Shampoo Bars from Belle Vie

I recently tried some great shampoo bars from Belle Vie Soap. The shampoo bars are handmade by Khadijah - "I love nature! There are an abundance of materials given to us by mother earth. It is my job to share the beauty of nature with others."

Belle Vie Soaps offer products for both the hair and body. I have tried the Double Shea & Hemp and the Argan & Warm Honey shampoo bars. They both smell yummy, are easy to use, and leave my scalp feeling clean and refreshed.  The shampoo bars are made with natural oils, seeds, herbs and butters. No Sulfate and no Preservatives. With prices ranging from $5.25 to $23.00, the prices are very affordable. To learn more, go to Belle Vie Soaps.

Poetry - Kinks Koils and Kurls

Kinks Koils and Kurls
by Belinda LeBlanc

My hair doesn't confine me, it enhances me
Letting everyone know that confidently bold is what i am
Adorned in a crown of textured tresses
It makes a statement that I alone couldn't even say
Whether its twisted up in a sexy up doo or free flowing voluptuous curls....

It is all a reflection of me
It's texture and complexity matches me to a T
My Natural Habitat is my solace and something most won't understand....
No you can't touch it
Yes its mine, and contrary to popular belief I LOVE IT!
My hair is my attitude....each strand holds an untold story of struggle; pride, confidence, history, heritage, and most importantly love
I was born in to these Mahogany Roots and i wouldn't change it for the world.
