Sophisticate’s Black Hair Magazine 

" She’s a Grammy nominated singer who’s also a fierce Naturalista. So it’s safe to say music star Carolyn Malachi knows her way around her curls–and she’s got this fab mane care tip she’s sharing: “Plait your hair at night and put a scarf on. In the morning, it makes it easier to pick out the curls; there’s less tugging on the hair.” For more from our interview with this rising star, check out the “Hit Girlz” feature in the Sept./Oct. 2016 issue of Sophisticate’s Black Hair on sale now!" - SBH 

Domestic Violence Awareness Month 

According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, about 48 percent of women and 49 percent of men have experienced at least one “psychologically aggressive behavior” by an intimate partner, including humiliation, stalking and isolating a victim from his or her family and friends. :: The National Domestic Violence Hotline 1-800-799-7233 (SAFE) / 1-800-787-3224 (TTY)

Tokyo + Nao  

Nao Yoshioka's "The Truth" premiered in Japan in September. The album, containing songs written by Carolyn Malachi and performed by Nao, will soon make its U.S. debut.

I was so excited to join Nao's creative process. As an artist and as a woman, she knows what she wants. Those feelings of certainty translate well. Keep your ears open for this empowering record.
