Afro achieved by picking out my twist out.
A video showing a stylist beautifully popping the curls of a client reminded me of the Doodles challenge of America’s Next Natural Model season 3 where all models used the Going Natural products to make their coils pop. As each model, all with different textures, show us you can do this at home.
Sometimes a wash n go isn’t enough to give you defined, long lasting coils. TightlyCurly.com’s Teri LaFlesh has inspired many people with tight curls and coils with what she calls Doodles—a term she got from her mother. “Doodling” helps separate and define natural curl and coils. I’ll show you how…

My dream gig would be to be the “face/presence” of a brand that caters to women that are neither model height, nor build. I represent the women that are shorter with fuller figures, but not necessarily plus size.
