Over the weekend we were invited to the "Natural Relaxed & Beyond" event at Hofstra University were we shared our natural hair story in an open discussion empowering black women and embracing our beauty. 

The reason why we (black women) have to have a discussion about our hair is because even though hair is an accessory, it also has an impact on our self esteem. There are so many little moments that can happen to a young black girl that can later on impact her self-worth. Little moments like getting a relaxer at the age of 7 or 8, experiencing scalp burns in order to have straight hair hence perpetuating the idea that there must be something wrong with her natural hair. We love that texture preference within the natural hair community, which sometimes is an issue, was also brought up during the discussion. That is why recently we make sure to reveal our true texture before styling to show that all hair is beautiful in all textures. 

Facing these issues directly will allow us all as a community to be more self aware so we can make sure we are sending the right message to young girls. Check out some pictures from the event, meeting students and signing our book "Guide to growing long natural hair". Thank you for inviting us Sigma Gamma Rho. It was a great experience. 



Check out another great review, this time from (Natural hair instagram blogger) @ "We received a lovely book to growing healthy natural hair from @catherine.marion The book "Flower Child Curls A Guide To Growing Long Natural Hair " by A.I. Omoruyi, is an easy read. We found the book to be very informative for anyone on a natural hair journey or transitioning. The guide provides well rounded information to help women understand and embrace their natural hair. I like the simplicity of the natural hair maintenance process that this book provides. The girls and I smiled as we looked through the book & saw the familiar everyday process that we have been practicing at home depicted in the pages. I love the detailed hair regimen, with emphasis on consistency. Caring for Natural hair takes time, patience and effort. Implementing a good consistent hair regimen is key. We are guilty over here at our home, because at times trust that we don't want to bother. Sometimes when I say it's wash day, my daughter sighs, groans?and mopes around. At which point I leave her alone. It's no fun doing hair upset or with both our hearts not in it.

The book is a perfect guide, there's a section on understanding your hair type, it's porosity, maintaining moisture, restoring & preventing damaged hair to help promote healthy growth. If you're on a natural hair journey you will find this guide to be extremely helpful. Growing your hair takes commitment and as perfectly stated in the guide "Take comfort in knowing that your hair, no matter what texture or density ...can grow."  Thank you@catherine.marion for your thoughtfulness, the girls and I enjoyed all the read and we are humbled by your kindness. For anyone interested in the guide you can find more information @catherine.marion Happy hair journey.

Today we made a quick how to style video recreating the look i did for my wedding. I decided to wear Catherine Marion U-shape Jessica Protective Style wig for the big day and i styled it by roller setting it over night then doing a half pin back hair do. I'm glad i decided to do my hair and makeup myself because i think i wouldn't have felt like myself otherwise. 

I also thought i would share some pictures with you guys taken by the awesome photographer  Alejandro Cerdena (Alejandrocerdenanyc.com). I was blown away by how beautiful and natural the pictures came out, Alex is truly a great photographer and he did a wonderful job.

I can't post these pictures without giving credit to my wedding planner "Juliet Caven" (julietcaven.com) i can honestly say my vision would never have come to life without her. She is so professional, punctual, organized and her eye for style is unquestionable. She was on top of everything and the day of went smoothly because she was there every step of the way making sure everything went as planned.

A special thanks also goes to our family, bridesmaids (Thank you to every single one of these ladies especially my sister Ivie), groomsmen and all of our friends that supported us through this crazy time.
