Issa Rae

If there is a bag to be secured, our good sis Issa Rae is already in it, and according to recent reports, our favorite multi-hyphenate hustler has finally created her own lane in the haircare industry and we love to see it.

Teaming up with Black business owner Hannah Diop, Issa is now co-owner of Sienna Naturals, an OG vegan haircare brand that is being reborn with new packaging, larger product sizes, and better prices. So, it's safe to say that our coins are withdrawn and waiting.

After launching her record company and becoming partial owner of an Inglewood-based coffee franchise Hilltop Coffee, Issa has more than proven that she's not a businessman, she's a business, man, and her most recent endeavor only further solidifies her status as a certified boss. According to Issa, as a naturalista and haircare enthusiast of many years, she knew that her collaboration with Sienna Naturals was only right.

"I've known Hannah for a long time, and I got to see the brand evolve from her home. It's expanded so much beyond that. The care and the research that has gone into this natural, safe, healthy brand, I knew that I wanted to be involved."

Issa, who will now act as the face of the brand, explained that because she has had a few bad hair days of her own, she can empathize with her sisters in the struggle and can now offer a new, healthy alternative to the toxic hair products that we're used to.

"We get coerced into manipulating our hair into styles not right for us, or using damaging products. I have an opportunity to make hair care digestible via my sense of humor, my openness to my own hair struggle journey."

So, if you've been rocking with this site for several years now, you might vaguely recall an article that I wrote, a couple of years back entitled, "Why You Need To Grieve Your Past Relationship". The bottom line was, if you don't make the time to go through the five stages of grief — denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance — even when it comes to the ending of a romantic relationship, you could 1) mistake a lack of thorough and proper grieving for still loving someone and/or 2) prolong the process of healing, so that you can actually move forward.

We all know that advocacy for inclusion and equality should be year-round, since we all have to be our fullest selves all day every day. Identity is a key element of doing that, and for LGBTQ+ professionals, this can include the question of coming out at work. Some may wonder whether their personal business is, well, anybody's business at work, while others might want to feel safe in the office being out, loud, and proud. Either way, coming out in the workplace is indeed an issue that not only must be addressed, but addressed appropriately.

Love is beautiful and social media is a wonderful way to showcase and spread it. However, many times it's the content with a bit of controversy or drama tied to it that gets all the double taps. But as my father once told me, "It's fine to seek drama in your art and interests, but love should make you happy and feel peace." When he said that, it stuck with me. For a long time, I think I sought out excitement in my relationships and that can lead to a lot of unhappiness or unhealthy situations.
