💙 Finally the video of Baby Madison’s journey has been released. Here is a little teaser…to view the whole video visit my #facebook @hadiiyabarbel #alopeciaawareness video by: @lexisiri photography: @islandboiphotography and beautiful 4 years old Madison @maddychins #lifeisbeautiful #inspiration #beautiful #support #love

💚 @islandboiphotography “Our true purpose for existing is how we contribute to this circle of life…to humanity. Often we get caught up in our day to day forgetting about what really matters. When we are given a gift or talent it is so that we may use it to “gift” another in need. We are all links to this chain of life….So it’s about how we connect to it.

The Connection:
Madison comes from a cultural family and all members have locs or natural hair. This is apart of their spiritual connection and strength. Due to a medical condition she was diagnosed with “Alopecia” which caused all of her locs to fall out. Her mother searched for months looking for a wig that would be close to her daughter’s natural hair. She was turned down several times and was told that it was impossible. Through the support of social media sharing she found @hadiiyabarbel of @hadiiyabarbelcollections and was introduced to the world of crowns. “A Crown is for the Queen a wig for Halloween” It was a journey getting the correct texture and fit for this little queen and her Crown. Madison was able to start a new school year with a new hair similar to her own. But her journey continues..” it was an honor and pleasure documenting this transition for Madision and her mother. It brought so much happiness and joy to see her smile and dance after her transition. Priceless. #islandboiphotography #lifestyle #documentationphotography #hadiiyabarbel #hadiiyabarbelcollections #madison #inspiration #motivation #curlbox #locs #crown #alopeciaawareness #alopecia #healing #urbanhairpost #naturalhairdoescare #bookme #investinyourself #beauty #priceless”

💚 @imso_foreign “Singer/Song Writer/ Performer/ Welder. Born in Germany, raised in both Europe and the United States. Have been loc’d in now for 8 years, will be 9 years this October. My locs are me, they are my story, my struggles, my memories. Soo much more than a style.. It’s a journey, it’s dedication, it’s commitment. You have the birth of my nieces and nephews, birth of my god children and the death of my oldest brother (RIP Robert “Frost” Evans) all palm rolled right here in my locs. You can see the good years, locs nice and tight and you can see the struggles as well, locs started getting bigger because I wasn’t able to afford to maintain them. But never the less. My locs are ME! ✌️😁.. 👊😤 #Love #Respect #dreadlocks #locs #InstaLocs #rasta #royalty #menwithlocs
