This past Saturday I had the privilege to attend Au Natural Miami’s The Gathering whilst teaming up with True by Made Beautiful. It was the first natural hair event I’ve been to in Miami and it and can confidently say I look forward to the next.
Taking place at The Sidebar (this was also my first time there, I’m typically a Wynwood girl) over 100 curly girls packed the eclectic lounge vibing to Neo-soul, Afro Beat and Reggae. Every girl had a different story, presence and kink but shared the same desire to be surrounded by women that have a love for natural hair and learn more about it. A roomful of women embracing their natural texture, sharing uplifting advice and experiences was what made the night so special.
I had just gotten back to Miami from LA the same morning so unfortunately my hair was still damp from me trying to wash it a couple of hours prior but I did a quick pin-up using True’s Conditioning Styling Cream. The shirkakge was inevitable due to my mornings co-wash but I did really like the hold I got from the product.
For all of my subscribers that came up and said hi, you don’t even know how happy that made me feel. Meeting you guys in person is kinda like meeting long lost friends even though we’ve never actually met haha Next time I’ll have to walk with my DSLR to get some good pictures.
Thank you again Au Natural and True by Made Beautiful for having me, I can’t wait to the next event.
