ATL Curlies, Turnt Up! Dark and Lovely Curl Power!




Maaaan, Atlanta has been on my radar quite a bit these last few months and y'all keep it rockin' no stoppin'! I touched down in the A once again, this time to kick it with Keshia Knight Pulliam and Dark and Lovely at the super posh Havana Club.  I must confess, trying not to call Keshia “Rudy” was more difficult that I’m willing to admit, but hey I’m an 80’s baby. #DontJudgeMeKeshia :)

Suffice it to say, we had a grand old time, or dare I say, E.P.I.C. even!  You know... '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!

See you tonight!


Natural Hair & Clean Living- World Natural Hair Show

Chiiiiiild... I am drained. 

Yesterday, I attended the World Natural Hair Show in Atlannuh with Mizani and I had one heck of an itinerary.  My day started in State College at 5 am. After a layover in D.C., a layover in Buffalo, some complimentary wine (thanks Delta, boo! *flips hair, pops gum*) and a delay, I made it to the A by 2:30 pm.  Same time zone in case you're doing the math.  There was the issue of the weather on the last leg and then someone spilled some damn jet fuel directly behind our plane. Really, tho? Fire department all on the tarmac... whole mess. 

At any rate, after all of that, I was at the hair show doing my thing for a total of 90 minutes. Where to next? Back to the airport, of course! Ready to head home...until my flight got delayed, all 3 of them. More complimentary wine and an upgrade to first class? Yes, please! Seven hours later I was back in State College resting my curly little head. Can somebody say pooped?  Oh, and for the concerned cyber aunties, Boog was safe and sound, looking after #ProfessorDaddy. They didn't even burn the house down!

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!

My SheaMoisture Sponsored #BTGH Book Tour


Started in Tokyo, now we here... D.C. that is, and it was fab.  We brought the 'Better Than Good Hair' tour to U Street in D.C. this past Saturday afternoon, and while it was too early to shut ish down, we tried our hardest.  There were
hors d'oeuvres, good music, grown folk drinks, one-on-one consultations and lots o' pics!  Enjoy the view and I hope to see YOU on the next stop *whispers... STL... we turnin' up...on some real levels*.

NYC Curlies, Turnt Up! Dark & Lovely Curl Power!



So last night was EPIC. 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. No matter the anagram... (I plan on copyrighting them all, lol), we had a GREAT night last night.  NY, we always do it big!

HUGE thanks to Dark & Lovely and Marsha Ambrosius for a fabulous time.  With free Dark & Lovely products, styling demonstrations, stunning models, Amanda Seales on the wheels of steel, an open bar and a house full of gorgeous curlies, good times were had by all!  I remember looking up and everyone in the venue was dancing to old school MJ.  Priceless.

The homie Chrisette Michele was supposed to be in attendance, she writes:
'You have no idea how badly I wanted to be with you and the curly girls last night. I was rushed to the hospital and had an emergency surgery. I even asked the doctor... can I go to the Curly event and come back? 
Guess what??? His assistant was like "A CURLY NIKKI EVENT?" I was like YES GIRL!! 
Need a tutorial on hospital hair stat! Giiiiirl this "non-silk" pillow? Momma had to bring me some coconut oil!'

Peep the view!-  


We were there to celebrate the launch of the new Dark&Lovely 'Au Naturale' line.  The first relaxer company went natural, y'all! Their line is geared toward defrizzing, defining and elongating.  Have you tried it yet? Share below!


The venue was PACKED. #AllTheWayLive
