"Nurture your hair, protect your scalp, and express freely. I feel that my hair is a beautiful depiction of my ancestors. You don't have to spend a ton of money to maintain healthy hair. Most everything you need can be found in nature and even in your kitchen. I try to keep the process as simple as possible. I moisturize my hair with argan oil and a hint of extra-virgin organic coconut oil during the summer."

"Don't be afraid to ask a stylist for direction! I finally shelled out for a stylist who specializes in curly hair, and she taught me everything. Finding things that are specific to curly hair has helped my #curlgame so much and has led me to using Mixed Chicks products. Total lifesaver!"
