“Naturally You” Natural Hair Mixer!

As you know I went natural last year March, but it wasn’t until April 25th, 2011 that I displayed my Afro-puff for the world to see. As I walked out of my house my heart was literally pumping super hard and I felt like the whole world was staring at me. And while I was on the train I pretended to read all the way to 59th street, because Lord knows I couldn’t bring myself to concentrate on my Essence Magazine.

As terrified as I felt- at the end of the day I felt so liberated and free!

Last week I attended Pretty Brwn Grls‘ “Naturally You” Natural Hair Mixer and met a whole group of woman who not only related to my experience, but had experiences of their own to share.

Besides getting to talk to my fellow naturals- the highlight of the event was definitely meetingJenell of KinkyCurlycoilyme.com. At the event there was a “Hair Product Swap Meet” table, where attendees shared the natural hair products that they use and love. Jenell maned that table and in the process gave honest advice on everything from “What products to avoid?” to “How can one figure out their hairs’ PH balance?”.

Here she is speaking during the event:
