On the Couch with Curly-Centric Jamaica

Prepared by Sharifa Grant for CurlyNikki.com

Founder of Curly-Centric Jamaica, Trudy-Ann Hylton, talks about how Jamaica’s first ever natural hair group got started. Plus, she takes us inside a CCJ meet-up--nothing like we’ve seen before.

SH: Tell me about the inspiration behind Curly-Centric? How did it all start?
CCJ: A couple months into my own natural journey I was totally confused as it regarded treatment, styling and overall maintenance of my natural hair. I also went about doing some informal research and found that there were many other naturals in Kingston, Jamaica that needed somewhere to go where they could hear all about taking care of their natural hair. So, I got in touch with owners of natural salons, product lines, a dermatologist, and the first Curly-Centric Jamaica meet-up was held in February 2012.

My Visit to Girls Inc. of St. Louis! #BTGH

Cheryl Jones, Executive Director 

Today I visited Girls Inc. of St. Louis, a non-profit organization that is close to my heart because, (1) I was employed there, (2) my mom is the program director, and (3) they're teaching young ladies to be strong, smart and bold... 'nuff said!  I was honored to speak to the girls today about staying focused, achieving positive body image, being passionate in all they do and following their dreams. I also signed books, answered their burning questions and discussed what they want to be when they grow up!  Peep the view!


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!

TODAY- 'BTGH' Book Signing at Girls Inc. of STL
