Love the Hair you Wear, indeed.


I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the natural hair event, Love the Hair you Wear located at Blind Whino in Washington, D.C. This is the third installment of this annual event and it was well worth the ticket price.  In the past years, I heard about this event and luckily heard about it in advance to attend. The event provided was able to take away some hair techniques that were shared by blogger, Rashida Banks on 4C hair.

Hair Tip #1: For the best twist-outs on 4C thin hair, style hair on 80% dry hair.

Hair Tip #2: Use foam hair styler creates definition for 4c hair coils.

The Goodie Bags

Not only do you get workshops and hair panels sharing useful information, but you get full sized products that are worth serious cash in retail stores. This was unexpected. I knew we would received samples but I did NOT expect full size products that are NOT cheap. I’m seriously set for the next several months. I also get to try some brands like… that I’ve been curious about.


There were some dope vendors that I had the opportunity to purchase products from. Curls were selling their products at a discount which I was able to purchase some hair oil.  I got a chance to have some fun in the photo booth playing dress up. LOL!



Although I’ve been way more active on my personal IG page (@BeingMakeda) than the blog’s IG page (@SkinnyGotCurves), a good number of you interact with me on my personal page. I shared this event on my personal page and to my surprise was able to meet some readers/ IGers IRL (in real life).

If you’re in the DC Metro Area and you missed this year’s event, check out their website and social media to stay updated on future events. I’ll have an event recap video ready for you on my new Youtube Channel here.
