Curly Nikki NYC Meetup!

Last night was the Curly Nikki NYC Meetup. I got to meet Nikki! I was like the ultimate groupie every time she retweeted anything I said on Twitter in regards to the meetup. LOL.

I got there a little late (in true Sherece fashion), but just in time to hear Nikki and the ladies from Mizani speak. They gave out a giftbag with coupons for the products and only two small samples of the products. I know it was free and all, but I thought to myself, “That’s it?” LOL.

I bumped into some friends I hadn’t seen in YEARS, who are also natural. That was exciting. Not to mention meeting many of you who I’ve come to know through blogging.

I wasn’t sure what to expect because this was my first “meetup”, but it was a cool event. I got tons of compliments on my hair (which was definitely behaving the way I expected) and people even recognized me! Craziness!

I did a twistout on freshly washed hair. I washed my hair with DevaCurl – Low Poo. I conditioned with Aubrey Organics – Honeysuckle Rose Moisturizing Conditioner. I used Kinky Curly – Knot Today as my leave in. For moisture and to seal, I used my EVOO mix. In each twist, I added Curls – Creme Brule for definition and after I twisted my whole head, I smoothed some Kinky Curly – Spiraling Spritz to add light hold to the style.

Here’s Me and Nikki!

My sis and Nikki! My sis had a braidout.

One of the Mizani ladies (Toni Garcia-Jackson) styling hair. I’ve gotta get some of those Mizani Lacers!

Here’s the Crew: Michelle of RadiantBrownBeauty, Shelli of Hairscapades, Me, My sis and Miche’al.

Me and Melissa, my friend from my first job ever… Mickey D’s, back in the 90’s!

Shelli really does walk around with scissors in her bag!!!! LOL

Shelli and Boog had a moment. Playing Peek-a-boo! Boog is such a good baby! She slept part of the time, over all of the loud music and talking. When she woke up, she was in such a good mood. She’s so beautiful with her curly hair.

Shelli and her sis. So much fun to hang out with!

Shelli, Me, My sis, I don’t know her name, but loved her fiery red puff, and my friend┬áNatalie from elementary school!
