It Girl Fam,
About a week ago, I had the pleasure of attending a CurlyNikki Meet-Up at Japonais Restaurant and Lounge in Chicago. If you are a woman of color with natural hair or are transitioning, then you probably already know that Curly Nikki is a beautiful blogger that promotes natural hair and provides practical advice on how to maintain it.
I could barely get into the foyer because it was so packed with local hair-nistas from relaxed to natural and everything in between. Once inside, I was immediately greeted with passed horderves. The timing was perfect, because I walked in there a little hungry. ☺
I was delayed and missed the formal presentation from Curly Nikki but I did secure a gift bag with Motions new line of natural hair products appropriately named NaturallyYou! and a package of Strawllers. As a community, we have a healthy appetite for credible and practical information as well as products that actually work for our hair. This Motions sponsored event answered all of the above.
One of my blog subscribers will be chosen to win my new box of Strawllers. For very obvious reasons, I cannot use them but I’m happy to re-gift it. If you’re interested in being chosen, you must SUBSCRIBE by EMAIL (top/right of this page) no later than midnight on November 1, 2012, have a US mailing address, AND comment on this blog post about your natural hair experience.
Below are the pix from the event.
