Fellow Moms, I Salute You. You Give Me Life.

Posted by NI4TW on May 11, 2018 1:37:26 AM

Mother’s day is this Sunday. All across the nation, children are fervently working on rose-adorned projects that may or may not include letters, poems or odes on the subject of motherhood. Most of these little gifts will be hilarious. Come Sunday, there will be breakfast in bed for some and post-church buffet for others. The rest of moms may experience a much-needed spa day, or at least a full blessed hour of silence in a candle-lilt bath. Moms everywhere will appreciate whatever gift their day happens to bring and recognize the sentiment behind every gesture. It’s what mothers do.

Posted by NI4TW on Mar 23, 2018 4:14:40 PM


Because I always design my products with the needs and desires of you in mind, I always love hearing how satisfied you are with them. Just recently I heard the following good news from @destinedforgreatness_26 on Instagram:

I used the Bamboo & Coconut Milk Growth Oil before getting my braids, and I must say it made my hair feel moisturized and left it smelling good…Love this product line…

We are also feeling the love on Facebook where Sheree Willis wrote:

"Her products are by far the best. Every time I use another product, I am greatly disappointed and run back to Taliah Waajid. ALL of her products work fabulous in my hair. I'm never disappointed. I love the way my hair feels and the scent is perfect. Never heavy nor weighted down. My curls are perfect. My twists outs are perfect. Love! Love! Love!"

Falling in Love With Your Natural Hair: How to Embrace Your Curly Chaos While Transitioning

Posted by Tonesa Jones on Mar 9, 2018 7:29:43 PM

There was a time when I couldn’t imagine myself without straight hair. Sunday afternoons were devoted to my flatiron, oil sheen, and the sizzle of my hair frying between two metal plates. I loved the movement of my straight hair, the deep dark shine of my strands, even with the inevitable heat damage I was causing. I could not see my natural texture the same way. It was stubbornly immobile and did not reflect light the same way my pressed hair did. A year after giving up my relaxer, I still could not accept my natural hair.

Whatever You Waaaaant, (Curls| Waves & Naturals Can Provide)

Posted by Karon Leslie on Mar 9, 2018 6:52:45 PM

I don’t know about y’all, but sometimes the day-to-day natural hair maintenance can make a real procrastinator out of me. Now don’t get me wrong—natural hair care is definitely a labor of love, but have you ever had one of those days where you know you have absolutely no choice but to do something with your hair? I mean you’ve delayed it for as long as you could. You’ve pushed it allllllllll the way to the limit. Next thing you know, you’re standing in front of the mirror, running your hands through those tangled and distressed curls, when it finally hits you. Your hair needs you now. And by now I mean, RIGHT now (cue Donnie McClurkin).

School Daze, Hair Daze: 30 Years of Progression or Regression?

Posted by Sheronda Gipson on Mar 9, 2018 6:06:29 PM

This year marks the 30th anniversary of Spike Lee’s movie, School Daze. I was in high school (I’m dating myself), when this movie came out, and I fell in love with it immediately. Not just because my homegirl, Cassie Davis, from the House of Payne and the Paynes debuted in it, but the depiction of black college life felt so natural and real to me. This movie, along with A Different World, helped me make my decision to attend, Southern University and A&M College, an HBCU.
