Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the Atlanta Naturals Brunch with Nikki Mae & Tachia Tweet.  It was held at Marlow’s Tavern off of Lavista Rd.  The food was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! So much so, me and a few girlfriends of mine are going back for a brunch of our own next Sunday… I can’t wait! :-)

136The beautiful Nikkie Mae of Naturally Chica!

nikkiHere’s a good ole IG pic of my hair & makeup before the ‘elements’ got a hold of it, Lol.

125Sylvia, of INSO Hair Salon in Atlanta was there to talk about the exciting all natural hair care system named… Basic, because as they’re motto states, ‘Hair care is basic’.

133Some of the products ‘Basic‘ carries are conditioning treatments, clarifying shampoo, conditioning shampoo, moisturizing sulfate free shampoo, moisturizing conditioner, Leave-in, rapid restoration conditioner, enhancing creme, glow & shine serum, defining gel, setting lotion & herbaceous oil!  All these truly all natural products can be purchased on their website here.

116Tiffany, of Cute As A Button earring & accessories was also there with these amazing earring & accessory designs.  Check it out!

117118115Tiffany also custom designs pieces.  So, if there is a logo or design that you love & you’d like to turn it into a pair of earrings or accessory, she can do that for you.  How dope are these bow ties though??  They can be worn as both a hair bow or a bow tie.  I opted to wear mine as a bow tie to work today! What do you think?

nikki1I can’t tell you how in love I am with this look.  Very masculine feminine :-).  Needless to say, there were just too many items to choose from.  I honestly had a hard time picking out what I wanted.  If I had a choice, I would have walked out with everything!  If you’d like to check out more of Tiffany’s pieces, be sure to visit her website here. Oh & yes, the hair is back to straight.  My personal protective challenge is still going strong! :-)

Let’s get into some of the dope hairstyles that were in the building!

122I thought this coil doo was too cute.  This hairstyle is the making for a great coil out!

121Here’s another pic with the women who did the styling!

129I saw this girl from across the room.  I just had to get a pic of this style.

130I’d definitely try this style out.  It looks to be a great protective style as well.

128Another style that I enjoyed seeing.  I just love the variety that going natural gives us kinky gals!

119All in all the event was fabulous!  What’s an event without goody bags?!  We all were sent home with products from the Basic’s hair care line.

What natural hair event have you been to lately?

Chime in!

Poetic Justice ‘Solange’ Braids

8 Jan

In 2012 Solo brought back the Janet Jackson Poetic Justice box braids with fierceness!  I’ve seen quite a few kinky gals rocking these braids in ways I only wish I could.  Even Beyonce’ was seen whipping her braids back & forth lol.  But in my opinion, she did not have that umph that her sister so effortlessly possessed.  IDK… you be the judge.

Beyonce Steps Out With Baby Blue Ivy Box braids would be considered a protective style.  As mentioned in previous posts, protective styles are great for times when you want to give your hair a rest, and to protect your hair from the earths elements.  But, it is also very important that you take care of YOUR hair when wearing any protective style, whether that be weaves, braids, buns, etc.

Moisture is very important for kinky gals with naturally kinky, curly or coily hair.  When your hair is in protective styles, like box braids, it’s can be difficult to get to your hair and add the moisture that is need.  Here’s a video I came across that  demonstrates how to moisturize your hair properly when in braids.

Now that we’ve touched on the important stuff, let’s look at styles! Check out some pics of a few Fly, Fabulous & Fierce kinky gals rocking their Poetic Justice, Solonge braids!
