Farewell to my first’s for natural hair!!

It has taken me quite a while to actually write this post, only because 1) I really didn’t fully grasp what was going on and 2) I admit I was sort of slacking. Well, I know your probably sitting here reading this like, “Okay is she going to get to it already”. Don’t worry…Here’s what the topic of discussion is…

As you may know I attended my first natural hair meetup ever with Imani of TribeCalledCurl, and that first meetup was at the lovely Karen’s Body Beautiful Spa. I met a lot of naturals who inspired me to really dig deep within myself to decide when I would go for my Big Chop. At the event I spoke with Imani and she discussed things with me regarding that big chop, and she recommended I go to Tendril’s Hair Spa a couple blocks away. When I decided to actually go ahead and take the plunge I made that appointment at Tendril’s Hair Spa and did my Big Chop, which you can check out here.

Sad to say :-(, both of those locations have closed. It really didn’t set in, and I don’t think it even really has set in fully. It saddens my heart to have to pass both of these locations of which were the homes for my natural hair firsts. Though, these locations are no longer, I know that both business owners are prospering and have moved on to much greater things.

I would like to thank both Karen Tappin and Diane C. Bailey for helping me to take the steps to a better and natural me.

CurlBox x KBB recap

A couple weeks ago I had he honor of being apart of a meetup hosted by the beautiful Myliek teele of Curl Box and Karen Tappin of Karens Body Beautiful.
On this particular day the sun was out and there was no doubt summer had arrived. It was a scorching 95+ degrees, as curlies from all over beared the heat to be apart of an event by two well know naturals.

It was a packed house; full of giveaways, champagne,mingling, as well as both Myliek and Karen shared there hair story, which was definite motivation. It was an amazing event and word on the streets is there may be a second round. Stay Tuned.

Love your Kinks,
