Hi #SuperNaturals,

I’m happy to bring you the good new of our sister being liberated from harsh chemicals, religious hair routine and confinement when your extentions are loose.

We are happy for you Rickey and wish you much success on your Big Chop journey.

Rickeys Words

“Free of the maintenance every 10-12 days, where my added hair would need to be tightened (sometimes painfully) and my gray hair would need to be colored.

I felt like I was a slave to this maintenance schedule.

Rickey Lake Buzz Cut

I wouldnโ€™t go out of town longer than 12 days, because of this. I even brought my hair fairy and dear friend, to London during my stint there to do what she needed to do to keep it on my head.

Well, it is a new year and new decade and a new me.

With the love and support of some of my dearest friends, John Bonny, Mandy Ingber, Sarah Havana Prats, and my love, Jeff Scult, I buzzed my hair off and it feels so good”

Happy New Year!!

Hi, Iโ€™m 007 Blonโ€™De an expert on infection control in salons.

I’m going to share with you hair braiding states that are deregulated from cosmetology and barbering.

Letโ€™s begin with your FREE coaching call at where you can purchase your stateโ€™s requirements in a perfect ebook designed just for your hair braiding business.

 These are my chosen states with cosmetology deregulation for hair braiding licensing as they are requiring special licensing for hair braiders.

For techniques as minor as cornrowing into patterns or extending with sew-in weaving for Hair Braiders and Natural Hairstylists are required to get an occupational license in hair braiding.

Hair braiders are not conditioning and manipulating the hair strands with chemical hair straightening agents as a cosmetologist does. 

Deregulation of state Cosmetology and Barber Boards makes entry barries for hair braiding creates more women entrepreneurs.

Bummer Christmas Try Kwanzaa Starting December 26th – January 1st

Happy Kwanzaa


What is it?

Each December the Outreach Program receives numerous inquiries about the festival Kwanzaa.

This celebration is not a festival originating in any of the 55 African countries nor is it an “African” Christmas celebration.

Kwanzaa is an African-Americans celebration of life from 26 December to 1 January.

Dr. Maulana Karenga introduced the festival in 1966 to the United States as a ritual to welcome the first harvests to the home.

Dr. Karenga created this festival for Afro-Americans as a response to the commercialism of Christmas

Here is the full article on Kwanzaa:

Be a Barrier Breaker in Braiding At GodSpeed

Iโ€™m asking God to use the power of scripture to change my life and actions to ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธ meditation.

I was raised with barrier blockers to meditating ๐Ÿงฑ and chanting.

Let me explain. It was challenging attending Aveda Spa Program because of meditation ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ was a mandatory exercise EVERYDAY!

If you know me NOTHING is mandatory and my Grandma ๐Ÿ‘ต๐Ÿพ said so!

No this was barrier blocker because I depended solely on what my Grandma and Great Grandma ๐Ÿ‘ต๐Ÿพ said out of the Bible.

So as an adult ๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿพ this meditation crap ๐Ÿ’ฉ keeps showing up everywhere I go.

Then God touch me and said โ€œyou run ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ to Google search bar for everything else ๐Ÿƒ run to the Bible search bar!

So I used my Bible App to find a meditation ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธ scripture this would prove Grandma ๐Ÿ‘ต๐Ÿพ right!

But low and behold I found the perfect ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿพ scripture to meditate on and here it is.

Psalms 104:34

My meditation ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธ of HIM shall be sweet: I will be glad in the Lord!

Now ainโ€™t that the bomb ๐Ÿ’ฃ .com!

I found the perfect scripture and now I have the ability to use my ๐Ÿ’ฅ power, favor and talents to help me break barriers or if you know me โ€œFind Loopholesโ€.

The Inter-weaving of Roots By A Natural Hair Stylist

Today, was a different day.

My obsessed with my roots has taken me back โฌ…๏ธ to my childhood.

You see ๐Ÿ‘€ Iโ€™m a fourth generation cosmetologist.

My great grandmother ๐Ÿ‘ต๐Ÿพ, grandma, mother and I all have styled hair.

Having a home ๐Ÿ  full of ๐Ÿ’ฅ Powerful Women itโ€™s difficult to let my roots show.

Some how I equated letting go of my touch ups ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธas being disheveled and not appropriate for outside.

But today was different I will start a new ๐Ÿ’ซ cultivation of Natural Hair Care.

Eliminating the shame and guilt of retouching and walk with my ๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿพhead high because my hair is just fine.

I have three daughters and my roots run deep throughout my๐Ÿ‘ช family.

I want them to love ๐Ÿ’• themselves naturally.

Iโ€™m ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿพโ€๐ŸŒพcultivating and pruning these old hair strands for a new BEGINNING!

Becoming SuperNatural in Hair Care


As a Natural Hair Braider, Beautician or Barber ๐Ÿ’ˆ knowing that chemical hair bleaching agents should not be applied to growing human hair is a ๐Ÿง  No Brainer.

Today we have a political issue โš ๏ธ thatโ€™s a plus for you and me on our tribes, progressive natural hair care journey.

Salon infection control is a must in the natural hair care ๐Ÿญ industry.

While wrapping human ๐Ÿ’‡โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿฝhair and using a moisturizer to prevent breakage.

We should be dedicated to a daily natural hair moisturizing ๐Ÿ“… routine in love ๐Ÿ’• and with care.
