In 2011 Founder and Creator of Oemi, Allison Shimamoto went natural. Taking the leap was a no brainer. Finding products that worked for her type 4 coils was the challenge. Most natural hair curly products are designed to ‘work’ with all curl patterns. But those products left her type 4 coils dry, flat, and rigid. Fed up with the so-called natural products on the shelves, Allison made her own natural products at home. Perfecting her natural hair care craft for over 7 years then bringing Oemi it to the world. A unicorn product for all those rocking the type 4 curls.  Allison took her passion for Type 4 curlies, what the food industry does for clean eating, and transforms natural hair care with her brand Oemi. A product so natural (and delicious) you can eat it (just don’t)! Shoot...you can even slather it on your skin. We love a good 2 for 1. With Allison we talk: Side hustling  Branding for the culture The science of the curl and textured hair Oemi , the brand, the myth, the living legend Importance of having people up, down, and sideways that believe in you PLUS Traveling while curly Juggling all the things The state of PoC hair care And what’s next for Oemi & Allison OEMI’s gift to you!

13: BRCA What? BRCA Who? What No One Tells You About Cancer & Genetic Counseling w/ BRCA Advocate Erika Stallings
Erika Stallings is an attorney, writer and BRCA awareness advocate. In June 2014, she discovered she carried the BRCA2 gene mutation, a hereditary cancer mutation that causes up to an 85% lifetime risk of developing breast cancer (and other cancers too). Just six months later she underwent a preventative double mastectomy -- at an age where most are just starting to come into their own. Erika’s eye-opening experience and research led her to become an advocate for other young women facing the same fate, particularly black women who are underserved by genetic counseling and testing. She has spoken about her experience with BRCA and the many biases at the healthcare level. Her message and mission have appeared in major publications such as Jezebel, Huffington Post, New York Magazine’s The Cut and O Magazine. She also serves as the founding co-chair of the Young Leadership Council for the Basser Center for BRCA. You can find her on twitter @quidditch424 or all the fabulous publishings below.
