Also that is my “Dont Fu*k With Me” lighter from A Shop of Things on Etsy, and this is a big-ass log of Palo Santo that I also picked up on Etsy from a store called SoulsticeJourney. I love a vibe, especially in my dressing room. I have so many lighters and sticks of Palo Santo around my apartment. Y’all should come over. Also shoutout to TSD Hair Extensions!Read More

Takisha first prepped Kerry’s natural hair with a deep conditioning hair mask and then used a blow dryer “to smooth her hair out and give it that sleek look with some slight volume.” She didn’t color Kerry’s own hair, though.

"On other curls I used my finger to pull and expand them a little, and other curls I left them alone."Read More
You recently launched TSD Hair, your very own hair extension line! What was this venture important to you?
I was trying different extensions on different celebrities, and I was like, “I don’t like this hair. This hair is nice, but it’s too silky, [or] this hair’s nice but it’s tangling. The quality is so important. So I started to look for my own extensions! It took over three years. After I finally found the right textures, my husband helped me with the packaging and everything. I call him my manager. When I launched TSD Hair at the Bronner Brothers hair show, they sold out! For me, when it comes to extensions and weaves, it has to look natural. It has to blend. Nobody should know your secret, they should just think, “Oh wow, your hair looks great.”Read More
