I'm Juanita Henderson, founder of Chocolate Kinks & Kurls and The Kurl Koach.

Chocolate Kinks & Kurls was founded as a very personal attempt to combat negativity regarding natural hair in my own family. My oldest daughter no longer found her natural hair beautiful. I knew I had to make a change.

Being a mom of 4 is my greatest accomplishment — 2 boys and 2 girls. I always knew I wanted to keep my daughters' hair natural, so I did. Although I wasn't natural myself, I was always intentional about telling Nayla and Alaira how beautiful their hair was. I affirmed them and taught them how to affirm themselves as well. 

Little did I know, that wasn't enough. One afternoon while preparing to go to my salon appointment, Nayla came into the bathroom and asked me the question that would change the course of my life.
