Mahisha Dellinger is dominating the natural hair industry and is a business and branding leader. Her memoir entitled Against All Odds: From The Projects to the Penthouse, details her difficult upbringing in Sacramento: “I’ve never settled for the norm. Even as a little girl from a broken home, I knew that my destiny was greater than my existence. After all, I’d survived abuse, and my life had been spared more times than I can count.”

Today, her company, CURLS, is now one of the leading suppliers of best quality curly hair products. We had the pleasure of getting to know a little bit about Mahisha and her journey to being a game-changer in the marketplace. And, she has some great hair care tips to achieve healthy curls – which she believes starts with healthy habits.

What inspired you to put your life on paper in your book Against All Odds: From The Projects to the Penthouse?

My journey was filled with so many issues, road blocks, and obstacles once I “made it” through it all AND succeeded, I knew I must share my story so that my testimony could inspire someone else.

The standard for beauty has long been skewed by mass media. How is CURLS reshaping the perception of beauty among people of color?

By offering organic products and solutions for women embracing their natural, God given texture  CURLS empowers women. We empower, encourage and enable women to love themselves just as they are.

What were some obstacles you faced while turning your $30,000 savings investment into the multi-million dollar empire that we see today?

My biggest challenge was getting funding to launch CURLS. Despite having exceptional personal credit. I wasn’t able to secure funding of any kind.  I wanted to launch on a larger scale, instead I started on a smaller scale, reinvested every dollar earned and grew the business over time.

 

Some of your most tried and trusted products include the Crème Brule whipped curl cream and the Lavish Curls Moisturizer 2nd curl refresher/daily leave in. Why do so many curly girls find success with these products?

Simply put…they were created for us, by us. I am the consumer so I understand the needs of today’s natural consumer.

Will "WillDaBeast" Adams

He’s elevated dance. His style is highly sought-after. You’ve probably seen a viral video already showcasing his ridiculous choreography. Will “WilldaBeast” Adams is our Fall 2017 cover and we are excited to share the story of such a dope guy with you all! He’s leaving a mark on the industry that will make it tough for others to make any better.

Growing up as a military brat was difficult for Adams. Moving around often, and not feeling a sense of belonging left him questioning his purpose, as he knew he was meant for more. Once he found his love for dance, he took a leap of faith, trusted his talent, and moved to Los Angeles, to become a professional dancer to artists such as Usher, T-Pain, The Black Eyed Peas, working with TV series such as GLEE, X-Factor and more. He’d later go on to build his dance empire immaBEAST that has global impact. His annual conference BuildaBeast Experience 2017 going on now, is hosting over 1000 participants daily, representing countries all over the world.

The energy Adams’ choreography brings is so infectious, you may find yourself watching his YouTube channel for hours, or deciding to try some of his choreography yourself – be careful though – we’re not responsible for any pulled muscles or sore joints that may come from trying to move like that! The fitness level he showcases is one to be admired!

Dance as a career, or outlet, certainly has its long-term benefits. But even dance as a form of cardiovascular exercise, or stress-reliever, can improve our overall physical and mental health. Scientific studies show that dancing helps improve our core, overall coordination, fight symptoms of depression, and can even keep our brains from aging!

Adams’ chatted with us about how he stays in great shape, what sets him apart, and what empowers him to be a beast!

Willdabeast Adams

What was life like for you growing up?

Life was confusing for me growing up. I moved around a lot of places, because I was a military brat. I lived in Virginia, Florida and Indiana for 12 years. I learned to love all people, try new things and was super involved with sports, as well as arts. But I always felt out of place and that I was destined for something more.
