Growing up as a young girl with natural hair (Afro textured hair) Styling and braiding hair has always been one of my many passions since the age of 9. My parents would find me in the mirror braiding my own hair for hours and they would praise me for having a skill at such a young age. I found myself becoming so indulged in braiding that it simply kept me focused and even allowed me to become an entrepreneur at a very young age. The more familiar I became with my own hair the more and more I wanted to know about where hair braiding came from. I went on to obtain my cosmetology license and there is where I realized they would teach me to do hair that looked nothing like my own. After successfully graduating cosmetology school and having license to now do hair I still felt as though there was a lot missing. I then realized there were still many things that the cosmetology schools didn’t teach and that was how to properly care for and style naturally textured hair.
