Naturally Pretty - The Art of Curl || Event Recap

There's one thing about going natural that I hate....  And that's that I didn't do it sooner.  I decided in March 2012 that I wanted to go all natural.  October of that same year I did the BC.  I'll admit, I had no idea what to do with my new texture.  I hadn't done any research on how to manage my hair or even what products to use.  Moreover, hubs HATED it :-(

Last Thursday I attended the 6th Annual Naturally Pretty Event, hosted by Atlanta MUA Mimi J and Dr. Mae a.ka. Natural Chica where this years theme was The Art of Curl.  Attendees had the opportunity to silently participate in the auctioning of three pieces of art from - CP The Artist, Andrea Pippins and Dana Bly of Pardon My Fro.  One thing I've really enjoyed about the NP events is seeing and meeting so many naturally beautiful women embracing their true self.  Although there are several natural hair events in Atlanta each year; Naturally Pretty is by far only one I look forward to attending each.  Check out my recap video below.  

Event Recap: Curl Boss - Naturally Pretty

My natural hair journey has been interesting to say the least.  March 2012 was the last time I permed my hair and October 2012 I did the BC!  I was so excited and a little lost because I had no idea what I was going to do with a twa.  Not to mention my husband hated my natural hair; he called it "nappy."  It bothered me, but I knew that after I got the hang of it he would love.  AND I was right!!

During my natural hair journey, I've attended many hair events.  My favorite is the Naturally Pretty hair event hosted by beauty expert and MUA Mia “
