Hello Curl Friends!
I’m Tamiah and I like to call myself, Creative Executive Officer of Diversamé. I am therapist turned stylist/educator and natural hair specialist. My passion is walking with women as they learn to embrace their natural hair. I went natural (cut out sodium hydroxide relaxer) as a grad student back in 2001. Little did I know that one decision would enrich my life so immensely. Through the years, a number of women entrusted me to assist them with their transition into also going natural. In 2010, I decided to bring a group of women together to discuss natural hair care, products and concerns. That group later turned into It’s a Natural Thang, Pittsburgh’s premier natural hair meetup group and natural hair event hosts. By 2012, I decided to return to cosmetology school (I’d gone for nails in 1997) and received both my cosmetology and cosmetology educator’s licenses. After years of working with natural hair and all kinds of curl configurations, I realized what was missing. Tools made especially for curly haired humans! The rest is sure to be hairstory!
