Maura’s Natural Hair Journey 

It’s Musical Mommy Monday and I’m excited to share with all you #naturalswhowantmore ! (use this hashtag to see more posts from us at AFHB) 


 Maura loving her look- ease for activities and manageable for the everyday – on the journey since age 5 

Always a pleasure -moms and daughter love blossoms when #hairhealingstyling makes happy healthy hair and body.  

Abbie will be growing into the hairhealingstling chair next – a few years and we have lift off! 

Here’s what mom had to say:

“Thanks so much for your help with Maura’s hair. It looks beautiful and she is so proud of it. I really need the help and guidance now that she wants to wear it long. I also did the co-wash with the sugar scrub on Abbie’s hair and I was able to easily detangle and flat twist. And she smelled so good! I love the sugar scrub.”

Julie B. of West Orange NJ USA 

It’s not always about the intricate styling here (even though we love to do that too). For many families the co-wash and knowing what products works best in the hair are the most important experiences. Easy in and easy out- functional yet stylish for the everyday and various activities. Sometimes just having a classic cornrow style is the answer to easier maintenance while looking good, feeling good and smelling good from our array of natural styling options. 

Reach out to us at 973-619-2855 or 201-921-9894 to receive a brochure, attend an upcoming event or meetup/forum or create your own group experience from our selection of workshops and seminars. You’ll be so hair happy you’ll wonder how you ever did without us.

Hair healing sessions are what you need them to be 

August needed his to be peaceful & easy


There were some laugh and a few small ‘ow wees’ bc those curls were immersed in conversations…

We cut at least 3 inches in a special session just for him & all was well in the Universe of Hair.

Simplers Botanicals Moroccan Blue Chamomile organic essential oil used in session in the spray bottle for calming and grounding for everyone.

Sweetness brought in to top off the ending by Camille Rose Naturals Almond Jai Butter – a new Ahava Approved and Assured product -hair helper -Team Naturiotic member Curly Empress picked this one – I approve & assure!

Do you blow out hair?

I love this question because it’s all about how your hair is when you come in for a consult. Many of you are contacting us for options in wearing your hair in its most natural state with a goal of having softer more manageable hair, no more breakage, and thickening the entirely too thin areas that worry you. 

So – yes – your hair will be assessed and there is a great likelihood you wil need several deep treatments – Classic Deep – to strengthen your strands to withstand a blowout. 

Now keep in mind – the blowout is one step and ceramic pressing is another- this in an additional step in furthering the straightening process which for some can be damaging over time.  Everyone’s hair is different so in a consult we cover your options and talk about bounce back. 

This was an easy light blowout and twist which will give this client a totally different look than if she had her wet & moist classic 2 strand individuals. 

High density- high porosity- kinky curly hair – beautiful! 

Just a peek — so check back for more on her journey —

Transitioning in Corporate America is…

a topic that comes up often when clients who are relaxed want to go natural. Here is a style that can be worked from the board room to the racquetball courts to the market with ease, easy maintenance and healthy scalp – all while the relaxer grows out! 

The term relaxer used to reflect chemical straightening of natural growth hair instead of the word perm which makes straight natural hair curly.


Thank you for your support of the chemical free natural movement for the kinky, curly, wavy and straight #naturalswhowantmore know that we are the last stop on the journey for answers to all of your pressing questions.

DBHW w/Ahava Your Hair Open Forum June 2015 (1)

Since January 2012 we’ve been meeting up and talking about natural hair and body care, styling and offering mini consults with me because everyone wanted to have a way to connect out in the open and meet in person – whether for more information about coming to the studio, to get a head start in meeting me before coming in and find out about joining the team.

Last weeks open forum which we often to refer to as a meetup was the usual buzz with naturals coming from my talk at International Natural Hair Meetup Day – pics will post to and Facebook as well as gallery share here on the blog soon.

Now to our feature pic:

We did the drawing for last weeks winners while at the Cultural Heritage Festival in Maplewood, NJ where we saw some more naturals from INHMD – shout outs to Daphne and Brittany!


The winners of last weeks giveaway are Fajr and Ashley of LovingOurLook.

We also have giveaways every week after and sometimes at the forum. As much as we can we post winners on Twitter, IG and Facebook – just remember every natural is a winner at Ahava Felicidad Hair and Body where many of our care and styling packages come with product bonuses like our PB&J Classic Deep and Style package. Find out more by reserving to come in for your exclusive experience.

Last but not least check out the naturals above on their blogs:

Reserve with a team member in training or reserve with me 973-619-2855

The sooner you make the call the earlier you can be seen by a natural and holistic care professional who will guarantee you results. As long as you are committed to the journey and want to transform your hair and body we will be here for you.
