Loc Love


 Self-love is one of the driving motives behind embracing natural hair, and we are completely here for it! However, often times, when natural hair is discussed, loose curls and kinks are highlighted, but locs tend to be forgotten about. No, we aren't referring to faux or goddess locs, though they make some pretty fabulous protective styles. We are talking about authentic locs! The kind that take long-term commitment. A part of why less light has been shed on locs, is because an air of mystery still resides around them. To help spread some loc love and knowledge, we reached out to a couple of well-informed ladies.    Meet the lovely Keisha Johnson, seasoned in her sisterlock journey, and Keianna Springer, a newly loc'd beauty.                @k_adore                       @keiannajenay_       How long have you had your locs and what inspired you to get them?  Keisha: My sisterlocks were installed September 2014. I’ve always wanted locs since being a kid. I was inspired to... MORE

Let's Celebrate! - A Note from Jasmine Lawrence


This year marks the 14th anniversary of the founding of EDEN BodyWorks. I’m immensely proud of the impact the team has made and continue to be optimistic about the future that lies ahead. Now that I’ve spent more than half my life at the helm of this organization, I’d like to share some thoughts on the journey thus far, where we’re going, and what keeps us moving.        Looking Back Some of you may be familiar with the story, but for those who aren’t, I founded EDEN BodyWorks as a teenager after facing my own challenges with managing my natural hair and understanding my value beyond my looks. I had two goals in mind when I set out to start my own company. First, I wanted to share the natural products I created and healthy hair tips I had learned through research with women around the world. Second, I wanted to encourage, support and empower people to pursue their best, happiest, healthiest lives regardless of what challenges they faced. What started with a hair oil made in my kitc...

28 Afros with Ziajah Nellom


My name is Ziajah Nellom of cupofZ.com and I’m the creator of 28 Afros, a month-long series dedicated to recreating iconic afros in celebration of Black History Month.    About 28 Afros   There’s no doubt that the afro hairstyle is multidimensional. Through the 28 Afros series, my goal was to showcase how intricate and versatile the hairstyle can be. I wanted to highlight shrinkage as well as stretched-to-full-capacity hair. I also wanted to display shapes and how the texture of an afro changes daily. It amazes me that we, as a people, still have such a hard time with something as simple as hair. Whether it be at home or in the workplace, it can be challenging for some people to feel comfortable wearing their hair in its natural state. When describing natural hair, I use words like intricate and multidimensional as a term of endearment, however, these same terms are used as synonyms for words like complex and difficult which are used in a derogatory manner. I believe that people ... MORE
