    Should I Henna My Natural Hair?

    in Fashion

    Amber Frank- I decided to follow my passion and Kynxx Natural Hair Styling was started September 2010.  My time as a natural hairstylist has exposed me to different products and through this exposure; it moved me toward my creation of River of Jordan, my organic all natural hair and skin care line.  The basis of Kynxx has always been to specialize in heat free natural hair care and styling with a preference of extension free natural hair styling. My vision for Kynxx is not just to be the best hair stylist I can be, it is to educate women on how to take care of their Afro-textured hair in the following ways:
    1.    Build a routine/regimen that is consistently followed to obtain healthy hair.
    2.    Inform women that healthy hair starts from within.

Perfect for outdoor Winter activities as well as hearing Colin sing along with many other Musical talents. The children will be playing outdoors today as well as indoor warm activities. Outdoors will be tobogganing, ice skating, games and prizes in the snow, snow shoeing, and cross country skiing. Indoors will be arts and crafts, henna tatoos, silent auction, and a book sale. All proceeds go towards the ongoing art programs within the Centre. Colin will most likely want to participate in some of the outdoor and indoor activities after singing to all! His Dad will be keeping tabs on him throughout this show and hopefully his cell phone works alright, while he freezes his buns off! It should be a fun filled Event! (Colin will be singing "Consider Yourself from The Movie/Musical "Oliver" and "Trolls" by Canadian Composer Clifford Crawley.)
