Welcome to our Back To Natural Blog!
by Kyra Young on Oct 16, 2016
Welcome to the KSM Back To Natural Blog! With the launch of our new website and many great happenings, we wanted to create an official blog for our online family! From real stories and behind-the-scenes to natural hair and skin care regimens and fun DIY projects, our aim is to educate, empower, and uplift the Natural YOU!
We hope you do not mind this repeat celebration, but we are so excited to have reached 3 years in business and are still going strong!
KSM turned 3 on Sept. 29, 2016!
We just want to take a moment again to say THANK YOU for all of your support, encouragement, and love! It is unbelievably crazy how fast time passes! It seems like yesterday when we were just sitting in Kyra's kitchen (YEP, the place where all the magic happens) trying to figure out how we would even start Kyra's Shea Medleys with nothing but $500 and HOPE!
