Rahua Amazon Beauty.

If you’ve been a regular in these parts for a while now, then you may remember that I’m a big fan of Rahua Amazon Beauty. (It’s pronounced “ra-wa” for the record!) I first heard of the line via Victoria, as I was looking for a shampoo + conditioner that were 100% natural. I got hooked because the products worked so well (they’re especially great for dry/dehydrated hair as the products all contain oil from the Rahua nut…

Beauty Tutorial: The Crown Braid, Two Ways.

Upon transitioning down to a more flexible schedule, one of the first things I did was reach out to my friend Jay to see if he’d be game to work on a series of hair tutorials. Jay (Jackson) is my most favorite stylist at DreamDry and also senior stylist/educator and member of their creative team. The man is majorly talented. He first did my hair for this event
