Dr. Chambers-Harris' Journey from Damaged Relaxed hair to Healthy Natural Hair

It’s New Years Eve 2009 and after many years of battling dryness, breakage and an itchy scalp from chemical relaxed hair, I decided to grow out my relaxer and fully commit to become fully natural.

During this time I was enrolled as a PhD student in Bio-Medical Sciences at Morehouse School of Medicine. I became fascinated with textured hair and spent countless hours studying and researching hair structure properties and maintenance methods. I used this knowledge to create my own products and incorporated them into a hair care regimen designed to promote moisture and length retention.

Midway through my natural hair journey, I decided to create a YouTube channel to empower others through education on the science of textured hair while guiding them through the transition from relaxer to natural hair.

Presently, I am 6 years relaxer free. One of my main reasons for wanting to create Alodia is so that I can share my knowledge with other people that are struggling to grow healthy hair and to create quality, natural products that people can trust for themselves and their families.
