Curlfest is a gathering of the most beautiful people ever! The third annual Curlfest happened in July and this is the first year that I actually got the chance to attend. I’ve RSVPed every year prior but life happened and I was never able to attend. well, it was worth the wait. I took my 12-year-old daughter along to the dopest picnic with the dopest women rocking natural hair.
There was a main stage with a DJ spinning all of the Beyonce that you can dance to. All of your favorite curl products/brands were on the lawn in Prospect Park selling your faves, handing out samples and vibing with cool IG backdrops for cool pictures.
The ladies over at http://www.curlygirlcollective.com/ knows how to throw a party. Make sure you are on the lawn next year.

My family and I will be relocating to Bk pretty soon and I can’t wait to take my daughter here next year. She’s already asking about having her hair straight (she’s 5) and I want to surround her with people just like her so she can appreciate her gorgeous hair.
So glad to hear that you will be a Brooklynite soon! It is a struggle o get our girls to love all parts of themselves in the society that we live in but times are changing. Brooklyn has it’s pros and cons but a huge pro is the diversity that exists here.
