Teyana Taylor has launched into the hair extension game and it’s all because of an encounter that she had with one of her fans. The 23-year-old announced on Instagram that she has partnered with My Extensionz to produce a line of extensions inspired by her notorious curls. The G.O.O.D. music artist says that after meeting one of her fans, who was battling cancer, she wanted to create her own hair line. She recounted the story on Instagram, asking for help to find the young lady behind her inspiration:

I ran into a young lady who came over to me and was like “I love you! I love your movies! I love you as an artist! And I am so in love with your hair!” We began talking, and she was still raving about my hair, and in the middle of talking; her Mom came out and said “She has cancer.” I was stunned & I cried.. She was

so strong tho it blew away. Her spirit was so warm. And just knowing all of the ailments that come from having cancer, I know one of the things that can be experienced during chemotherapy is hair loss… And with that being said She is pretty much my inspiration behind starting my hair line.. So to the young lady I met if u see this, I want to thank you & send u watever u need!
