A Natural Hair Anthem

Motions – Naturally You

Monday, January 30th, 2012

I can’t think of the words to express how blessed I feel. I think lucky or excited beyond measure are a few phrases that reveal my emotions perfectly.

Let me explain. I was recently invited to a luncheon hosted by MOTIONS hair care products. MOTIONS is mainly known for their relaxers, but now the company has created a new line of products for natural hair called Naturally You. I attended the affair that launched the entire line. The event took place in my hometown, New York City, at the magnificent Mondrian Hotel in Soho. I haven’t visited New York since I relocated to New Mexico in June. I was clearly happy to return to my old neighborhood, and most of all, to be a part of a new product line that celebrates natural hair care.

Back in my perm days, I often used MOTIONS relaxer, and because of my familiarity with the company, I was extremely excited about having the opportunity to investigate their latest brand for kinky hair. Naturally You consists of five major items that include a Moisturizing Cleanser, Smoothing Conditioner, Deep Conditioning Masque, Hydrating Pudding and Radiating Gloss. Each product was produced for curly hair and infused with Shea Butter, Coconut and Avocado oils. As I see it, one of the best things about Naturally You is the price. Items range from $6.00 to $7.00 which clearly makes them affordable.

Whether you’re wearing your natural hair in tightly-coiled curls, loose ringlets, flowing waves or super straight, new MOTIONS Naturally You products are specially-formulated to moisturize your hair with essential natural oils. Embrace the incredible beauty of your natural hair with Motions Naturally You. For more information visit us at

Check out the pictures below from the event that launched it all.

Going Natural

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

Check me out on the Going Natural website promoting the products at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) during Memorial Day weekend.


Sunday, May 29th, 2011

Every Memorial Day weekend The Brooklyn Academy Music (BAM) has an African Arts festival that includes an array of food, clothes, art,  jewelry, hair care items and so much more. One of the main events at BAM is the African dance performance that features a different African dance theme each year. This year a company from Cuba is the main attraction. I saw them perform last week during a preview show and they were spectacular.

After watching their dance routine, for the first time in a long time, I thought about continuing my African dance training. I always enjoyed that style of dance because it can be very magical and the steps tell a story with lots of personality.

This year at BAM I was asked to be a hair model for Going Natural hair care products. The founder of Going Natural told her hair story on Permed to Natural. Check out her feature Here.  I had two strand twists put in using Going Natural’s No More Knots leave-in conditioner and Silky Shea Hair Butter.

Check out the pictures from BAM and my hair modeling experience below.

The hair piece was made by the stylist. She is in Brooklyn, NY and can be reached at and

Before the two strand twist I wore a curly afro.

Luv her curls.
