#Transformation

I’ve been transitioning to natural hair for the last few months, and  I think it’s awesome having the right hair care based on your lifestyle, what your natural curls look like and how you tend to take care of them. I’m impressed with Form beauty and how they inclusively figure out the needs of all

#FreeFORM

I am often asked, “why are you free forming your hair?”…I often pause, look at them, and say, “because I am on a journey of freeing myself from what was once deemed my reality.” Free Form locs or as I like to call them, ‘Rastas’, are my way of letting go of all societal teachings, accepted

  Victory in Morocco for FORM Beauty These past few weeks have been amazing here in Morocco! Everything from the food, culture, atmosphere and weather has been a dream. I for one, love the heat.

#stayTrue

Self-care is imperative to quality of life. Dire almost. If we don’t take care of ourselves, then we are no good to anyone else. I’ve found this to be one of the truest things in my journey of self-love and care, and even in my active everyday life! I am very much a believer in

#GROWTH

Growth, is inevitable. We cannot stop it. Any efforts to control it, usually backfire on us in unimaginable ways. For far too long, others have tried to control, manipulate and even stunt our growth.

#COLORBLIND

COLOR DOESN’T MATTER. How many times do we have to battle this? How long???? If you can’t see that this is all a construct to make us hate ourselves, implement hierarchy, divide and distract us; then you too, are part of the problem. She is not better than me. Nor me, than she. We are

#RESPECTFULLY

It’s not ok to degrade us. It’s not ok to talk shit about one over another. For any reason. It’s not ok to buy into this mentality that lighter is better. Straighter is nicer. Fairer, is the gauge for what’s more pleasurable. ALL THIS, IS BULLSHIT. And so is your mentality, if you adhere to

#TURNT

One year down and counting! June 21st  The Colored Girl celebrated our one year anniversary, and a lot has happened in a year. What started out as a disruptive idea, to be seen and heard; turned into a viral sensation, necessary movement and full blown business. We are proud to say that the work we
