Be on Maicurls!

I believe in sharing! I believe that if we share our stories we not  only get to tell people about what we have been through (the good, the bad, and the ugly) but it you might be that spark that helps someone else to take that leap of faith! I love the thought that we can inspire someone else or even become a mentor to someone else. If you have read a little about me and my Journey you will notice that it was not just my family, friends and self determination that helped me stay on the natural path but it was also the people on the World Wide Web! I was able to ask questions, research and learn from others online. So this page is going to be dedicated to all of you who wish to share your own stories! 

I figured that the best way to do this would be to provide a page dedicated to your Journey “Features” as well as a page dedicated to your favorite style “Rocking Your Curls”. 

P.S. this is open to people of all ages, races and genders!
