social media marketing
A few years ago, tired of the cycle of her own hair breakage and damage, exhausted by the dependence on hair extensions and frustrated by the limitations of her weakened hair structure, she had an epiphany. One that came on the heels of her beloved mother’s passing.
According to Verna, after years of mistreating her hair with heat and chemicals, it was crying out for her to stop destroying it. The combination of Verna’s frustration and personal loss led her to explore the restoration of her hair - in essence to find herself while celebrating her heritage and the natural beauty that she’d inherited from her parents.
Verna took the first steps towards rehabilitating her hair and paying homage to her ethnic Filipino and American background by vowing to leave all her heat styling tools and chemicals behind and embark on a journey of self discovery and hair wellness.
In under a year and to Verna’s surprise, the bouncy, healthy natural curl of her hair was restored and today, her hair is strong, thick and full - and truly her crown.
Verna's hair safari began to get noticed online and in just a short while, her Instagram page had 20,000+ followers. People were knocking down her door asking for advice on how they too could restore their natural hair texture. This prompted Verna to research as much as she could about natural hair, becoming an adviser and blogger helping others to achieve their own healthy hair goals.
