As a talented actress who is known for her role as Layla Williamson on the ABC soap opera One Life to Live, Tika now has recurring roles on the tv shows “Gossip Girl” and “The Game”.

I LOVE TO SEE AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMEN EMBRACE THEIR NATURAL HAIR. WE EMBELISH SO MUCH BEAUTY IN OUR NATURAL HAIR. I’VE NEVER BEEN SO PROUD ABOUT, GOING COMPLETELY NATURAL IN MY ADULT LIFE UNTIL, NOW. I WANT TO TEACH MY TWO DAUGHTERS THAT, THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL, INSIDE & OUT, ESPECIALLY THEIR HAIR. P.S. I LOVED THE ARTICLE OF TIKA, SHE LOOKS AMAZING WITH HER NATURAL LONG HAIR.!!
