" Try not to wash your hair more than once a week, if it begins to feel dry, wet it and use just conditioner...the shampoo will only continue to dry your hair...its best used when removing product build up and cleanse the scalp."
I grew up doing hair. I even wanted to take the hair classes in high school, but we moved and I lost access to the program. Hair and makeup fascinated me, but I never took action until my internship with Disney. Life brought me to Kansas and I was able to take the necessary steps of faith. Though it took me some time to come to where I am. That time of growth helped me figure out what type of career I wanted.
I saw a post on Smash Glam's Instagram. I have been follower since I moved to Kansas a few years ago. I admired there quality of work, so I wanted to watch them prosper. I never thought about working for them, but when I saw that they were opening BDR I knew that this was my chance. My chance at the career that I desire.
My beauty industry inspiration is Takisha Sturdivant-Drew. The level of greatness that I desire to reach I see in her and her work. She was the first stylist that I saw doing what I want to do. Takisha's work ethic and example was my hope. I also see that level of greatness in Tippi Shorter. I discovered her through the BDR, but quickly realized I was familiar with her work long before I knew of her. I have been blessed to have these two role models that also look like me...I have hope and they show me how to continue to embody humility.
My favorite Aveda hair product is the Dry Remedy Oil; because it is light and nourishing to the hair. It seals in moisture which helps control frizz and reduce breakage. It is perfect for anyone, but especially for anyone with naturally curly hair.
In the spirit of #throwbackThursday have a great day and enjoy one of my favorite quotes:
