It’s been said that having and maintaining healthy hair is directly connected to other aspects of health, like healthy diet and healthy skin. The founder of No’Kyem Naturals, Earashea Knight-Stephenson, has made the same connection and is adding skin care products to the already successful line of hair care products created by No’Kyem. The new line, Ah’Sarae, released TODAY at NoKyem.com. I spoke with Earashae about the new line, texture shaming and what set No’Kyem apart from the rest. Check out our chat below.
There’s no better way to know that a product is worth a try than to hear it from someone who has tried it and loved it. For those of you that need to be convinced that Mielle Organics is a line worth trying (because I don’t :)), then Yandy Smith is telling you from her first hand experience that it is. The reality TV star has become the first celebrity Brand Ambassador for the hair and skin care line.
If you thought that DC native, Taraji P. Henson, was only building a empire on TV you are sadly mistaken. The actress is building an empire in real life and she’s taking no shorts while building her kingdom. Taraji is killing Essence‘s November 2015 cover, all the while dropping knowledge on surviving in an industry full of up and downs. Check out a few excerpts from Queen Taraji below.
It seems as if Mielle Organics emerged out of the darkness overnight. The natural hair care product line has resonated with naturalistas all over the world since it’s creation in 2014.

“There’s only one September issue, and there’s only one Beyonce.” -Vogue
Anyone who knows fashion knows the significance of covering the September issue of Vogue magazine. Fall is the biggest fashion season of the year and the September issue has to be everything! So who better to grace the cover of the biggest magazine issue of 2015 but the Queen herself, Beyonce Knowles-Carter! Arguably one of the most influential entertainers of our time, Beyonce is stunning on the coveted cover in a sexy lace assemble and natural make-up.
“The most powerful thing about her persona is the unabashed pleasure she takes in her own body: its beauty, its power, its versatility,” the magazine said in the cover story.
We’re still in the midst of our “Chatworthy Summer Give-A-Way Series” and one of our sponsors is Mielle Organics. The good people over at Mielle sent more than enough product for our give-a-way so I thought why not use the extra product myself and share my results so the other Mielle newbies like me can get a taste of their amazing line. I wanted to try something that would be universal to all naturals from those rocking TWA’s to us gals rocking funky twistouts and wash ‘n go’s. What’s more universal that moisture? So I decided to try their Avocado Moisturizing Hair Milk. I added this product to my wash day LOC process and was super happy with the results.
