Hello World!

Hello World!

Hi, My name is Triva and I’m a 27 year old black student living in the Hampton Roads area, in Virginia. I’ve recently went natural over a year old ago and I was very hesitant about it because it’s honestly a lot more work than going to the drugstore , ULTA, or Sephora and buying a product right off the shelf but it was the best decision I’ve ever made! My hair, skin, nails, teeth, and face has become softer, clearer, cleaner, whiter and even more beautiful than ever before! I feel like my whole body has transformed. I’m here to help men and women do this, I will be giving tips and notes (of all colors/races) on how to become more natural. I promise it’s worth the time and money and I think you’ll feel the way I do now, beautiful!
