Always one for celebrating individuality and going against the grain, Taliah Waajid had a dream of being a pioneer in the natural hair care world – and that’s exactly what she accomplished. Being natural means being yourself, according to Taliah, and when you stand tall and celebrate that, others will as well. Tapping into her strong desire to create chemically-free hair products, Taliah founded Pure & Natural Shea-Coco™, the five-product line for natural hair enthusiasts.
Taliah took time to speak with Beauty in the Bag on why natural hair care is the way to go.

I have a lot of hair on my head. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, but sometimes keeping my shoulder length locks flowing, gleaming and smooth can take half a morning. So when Leonor Greyl, a Paris-based natural hair-care brand launched Lait Luminescence, my ears perked up. Technically a detangling, styling spray, Lait Luminescence ($43) also offers UV and heat protection while making hair more manageable and shiny.
Turns out that the spray is like a light stay-in conditioner that definitely detangles, but more importantly for my somewhat course wavy tresses, smoothes and softens. It also helps repair some of the damage from regular use of heated tools. Lately, I've been blow drying and ironing my hair to keep it in line, and the ends are showing a bit of wear and tear. I liked the way Lait Luminescence made my hair look and feel less dry and damaged.
If you are looking for a protective detangler, or just need a light smoothing, styling spray, give Lait Luminescence by Leonor Greyl a try.
