Blog News : "Just Act Natural" By Le Salon Des Naturelles


Blessings and love beauties!!

The lovely ladies and co-writers, Charish and Evelyn, of Le Salon Des Naturelles have set out to accomplish an amazing project!

They are making a documentary about natural hair and let me tell you it sounds like it's going to be big.

I really believe this is a great way to inform people on natural hair, hear different perspectives and understand what natural hair is really about. It is not only going to be educating for non-natural sisters but for naturals too!


However, a project like this cannot be completed without proper tools and help...

Any help you can offer these two ladies as they start this big project will be really appreciated!

Check out the whole article, written by Charish, for yourself :

Charish and I are moving and shaking! We've decided to film a documentary on natural hair. Although Chris Rock's "Good Hair" was groundbreaking, it failed to address a major area of Black hair---natural hair! We will begin filming at the first annual Northwest Ohio Natural Hair and Beauty Expo (October 15th 2011). From there we plan to do interviews, visit natural hair and general black hair salons, and consult and interview natural hair bloggers and youtubers to gain the widest range of perspectives. We are still deciding on a title for the documentary. A few ideas that we have are posted on a poll located on the left column of our blog homepage (this page). Please vote and help us to decide a title. This is a HUGE project! It will take lots of time, energy, and funds to complete. Here is where you all come in. Charish has set up our proposed plan for the documentary on kickstarter.com:

We will be reaching out to all of you for your thoughts as we proceed with this documentary ,but first things first. We will need funds for booth fees, camera equipment, editing software, and dvd production. Our goal is to make $3,000.00 dollars by September 11, 2011. We could really use our friends/family's help and anyone else out there who feels passionate about natural hair.
Pledges can be as small as $1 or as large as $350. For any amount you donate to our film production, there is a reward for you. We'll take great or small pledges, it's all counted as amazing support from you.

  1. This is so awesome! I love when our women do something spectacular like this.

    PS I figured out why I could not comment through blogger (only when I'm at work) so I can use Mozilla and comment just fine ;)

  5. @Muse Origins, we have raised $50 so far and we're working steadily with plot ideas, meeting with the makers of the Expo, and all around hustling.

    Thank you for taking an interest. We're excited about such an ambitious project and even more excited that others can put our story out there.
