About Textured Talk & Charlene McCraney

Empowering women through beauty, blogging, and self-care Textured Talk is all about being transparent and motivating women to be their best selves.  Originally created out of my love for natural hair and helping women embrace their curls things have changed a bit since then.  Since 2014, I’ve grown as a woman, a daughter, and a friend.  I also have a better understanding of what I believe my purpose what I was put me on this earth to do. To bless and empower women. Simple as that.

I hope you enjoy my journey throughout the blog!

    Thank you for doing this. I decided to go natural in July with 0 information/research. i just BC’d and was left with less than an inch of hair to work with. It’s been growing out slowly. I have been scouting the net for bloggers with type 4 hair that is really short to see what to do but i only seem to find bloggers who are showcasing longer hair. Any suggestions of who i can follow or where i can get more information on very short hair care?
