Love this!



This would be my first official post on this blog. This is like a Month and some days after it was made but we thank God for the inspiration and the time to do this.

No. During my adolescent and teenage years my mother permed, straightened and jheri curled my hair but when I got to college I started my natural hair/lock journey.
