The International 'BTGH' Book Tour Hits St. Louis!

Hola Chicas,

Last night I brought the international 'Better Than Good Hair' book tour to my hometown of St. Louis, Missouri!  More than 600 curlies from as far as Memphis (hey Lisa, boo) and Kansas City, turned out and turnt up at The Coliseum.  The very classy affair, complete with signature cocktails, appetizers, gift bags and some wobbling morphed into a 'bout it ass party by the end of the night!  Warning... this post is incredibly pic heavy as it was another E.P.I.C. night!  I'm talking 'everything possibly imaginable, cuz' type EPIC, I mean, 'every photo is cute' type EPIC, or better yet, I mean 'envious people were instantly concerned', type EPIC. Enjoy!

The line...

The Sponsors-

SheaMoisture, sponsor of the international 'Better Than Good Hair Book Tour'. 

Heidi Schmid, founder of the Q-Redew (a portable hair steamer and refresher) was a special guest sponsor on this leg of the tour! 
The Q-Redew is the first hand held steamer. It has received rave reviews on the interwebs by wavies and curlies alike for curl refreshing and moisturizing. 
 Thanks Heidi!
