Fav products: I'm a Deva girl--DevaCare No-Poo, DevaCare One Condition, Devacurl Set it Free; I've also been using Curls Gel-les'c instead of the Set it Free for a few weeks, and I like it quite a bit; in search of a really great deep conditioner

I am also an insurance agent specializing in life, health and investments after having an 11 yr career in healthcare. I transitioned from April 2008 until my bc September 2009. Haven't tried many products yet but I am already in love with Oyin handmade (all of their products) and Qhemet Biologics Detangling Ghee and Olive and Alma Heavy Cream!

My name is Carla, but everyone calls me Carls (very original right? LOL)
I'm From St. Louis, MO currently residing in Los Angeles, CA.

About me: I'm enjoying my life. I get to do what I love everyday. I come from a very large close knit family, they are everything to me. 95% of the women in my family are natural... that absolutely influenced my decision. My two best friends (my sister being one) recently big chopped, that made me and my mother two very happy women Very Happy I've been natural since 2004, but only recently learned to care for it, and I really wish I would've known then what I know now pale

My faves: so far they are HE HH (mainstay), Shea butter, and coconut oil. I'm constantly experimenting since my hair seems to like some things then reject them later on down the road Rolling Eyes Idk. I just do what the hair tells me to do. Smile

I currently don't have any online albums dedicated to my hair, but I'll post random pics if it's needed.

That's about it. It's nice to meet you all Very Happy I see some beautiful heads in here! I'm EXCITED, and ready to talk hair!
