Maria’s Growth Challenge

Maria is one of the first people I meet at Temple University.  Starting from freshman orientation, we’ve connected and been very good friends from that point on.  Maria not only has gorgeous hair, but she is an amazing graphic design artist.  Read below for her video journal of her new growth challenge…


I am starting a new hair growth journey… I’ve been natural for 6 years now and i want growth now!
Below are videos that talk about what has inspired me, and how I am now determined to get healthier, longer hair.

I stopped relaxing my hair in January of 2004. It was after I had to take a semester off from school because I couldn’t pay the tuition. I don’t know if it was because my hair was the only thing I had control of at the time or if I just didn’t feel like dealing with it; but which ever it was going natural was the best thing I’ve ever done.

Video: Teyana Taylor Big Hair Inspired

I am green with envy.  A lot of us fall in love with our natural hair, and our only wish is for more!  Well Ms. Teyana Taylor has it.  Just Google Her Baby!

Harlem-based rapper, singer, and dancer Teyana Taylor first gained recognition across the States on an early-2007 episode of MTV’s My Super Sweet 16. By the time it aired, she had already signed to Star Trak/Interscope, helped popularize the Chicken Noodle Soup dance, and choreographed the video for Beyoncé‘s “Ring the Alarm.” Her debut album, featuring productions from Hit Boy, Mad Scientist, and Pharrell, was released in 2008. The brash pre-release single “Google Me,” produced by Jazze Pha, caught quite a bit of attention on the Internet. ~ Andy Kellman, All Music Guide –MTV.com
