“They” call it a movement. “They” call it a community. “They” are the hundreds of black women who last week attended the hair care line Mizani and popular natural hair blogger CurlyNikki’s first ever New York City Meet Up at the Carlton Hotel.
It was only after witnessing the legions of New York fans & celebs like actresses Janet Huber & Karyn Parsons who filled the venue did it become crystal clear that this event was more about a meeting of the minds then promoting a brand – although there’s much to celebrate when it comes to Mizani’s True Texture Collection, but I digress.
A few overheard conversations made it apparent that the Meet Up gave natural hair-wearin’ women the opportunity to share their transitioning stories and how that decision impacted their lives positively or negatively, and to swap tips and tricks on daily maintenance techniques. The evening was full of learnings to be had like the latest styles for various hair textures via the Mizani styling stations that littered the upstairs and down…inspiring to say the least.
Mizani, the authority on hair care that’s designed to restore every hair type to it’s ultimate state of balance, has just added two more products to their True Textures Collection made specifically for naturally curly hair: Curl Soft, a weightless leave-in conditioner and Curl Set, a moisturizing high-hold jelly.
What bonded these women was their belief in living a relaxer-free existence. Are you ready to take the plunge? Click here to read about maintaining your brand of curly hair.
It’s’ not easy to wrap this story up with a bow and move on to the next because it’s one that still evolving. “Our” hair remains the focus of so many discussions in Corporate America and beyond, welcomed or not and will forever affect how we really see and feel about ourselves. Until next time…
