Never take a food nutrition or ingredient label for granted. I was shocked and surprised when a brand that I have trusted for years threw me a curveball. Actually, it was my own fault. I got complacent. It all started a few years ago, back in 2013 when I went to purchase heavy cream for […]

My loc journey began on the evening of May 11, 2017. After washing my short TWA I watched it coil up and decided, “Why fight it?” I might as well twist my hair and allow it to do what it’s been wanting to do for decades…lock. So, I took each individual coil and twisted it. […]
