Ansylla’s natural hair journey began in 1997, when she transitioned to wearing and caring for natural hair. In October, 2000, Ansylla completed the Sisterlocks™ training course. However, it was not until December, 2001, after completing a Natural Hair & Braiding course did she begin working in a salon. In an effort to offer the best holistic hair care services, she also completed a certified herb specialist course and a School of Natural Health course.
Desiring to share her knowledge of natural hair care, in 2003, Ansylla taught a basic natural hair care class through the Maryland – National Capital Park and Planning Commission at the Wayne K. Curry Sports and Learning Complex during the spring, summer and fall sessions.
In October, 2003, My Hairitage Natural Hair & Wellness opened in Clinton, MD. Recognizing the demand for natural hair care professionals, Ansylla has offered Holistic Hair Care and Advanced Loc Techniques workshops on a regular basis since August 2005. Many of the workshop participants have been empowered to start their own natural hair care businesses. She regularly presents seminars and hands-on workshops at the World Natural Hair Health & Beauty Show (Atlanta, GA), Afro Hair & Beauty Live (UK) and other events across the US, in Canada, the UK and Paris.
In 2008, Ansylla began developing The LOC WEAVE™ to help loc wearers who experience thinning and baldness. This is one of her proudest accomplishments!
Ansylla endeavors to share her knowledge about natural hair care and wellness, while encouraging persons of African descent to embrace ALL facets of their beauty.
