So I went to an iHeartmyHair event last week hosted by its founder Añya Grant.
It was a great night – Thanks for the having it Anya. There was a product swap, which I loved. I left with Jane Carter’s Curl Defining Cream. So I’m looking forward to trying that out, but that is another post. I also finally met another natural blogger that I have been conversing with on Twitter: Bee from '83 to Infinity.
I just wanted to say that it was really good to get together with other Curlies in the city, in an intimate setting and just chat. We had a good discussion about why we went natural and how many of us are perceived in our professional and person lives. There were many insights, but for me the most important thing I took away from the evening was the need for support and unity in our natural and curly community. Slowly but surely we are getting our act together and showing the world our natural beauty. So look out world!
I hope that this blog can help provide you with support and unity to a certain extent whether you are near or far. Let’s continue to communicate and share stories. Keep me posted on what you want more of and make sure and drop me a line to just say “Hi” or if you would like to be feature on Canadian Curlies.
Blessings and Curls,
