Five hundred curlies and natural hair advocates came from near and far (Kentucky, Indiana and KC was in the house!) to mingle at EXO lounge in St. Louis, Missouri. The event, sponsored by Shea Moisture, was absolutely fabulous and I must say… my hometown represented well! After a brief welcome from yours truly, the ladies talked it up all night and many came back out to the after party! The venue was gorgeous and managed to hold us all, the food delicious, and the giftbags chock full of goodness!

I guess to briefly sum it up–

Hundreds of natural beauties + Shea Moisture + Free stuff = amazingly awesome times.
