On Tues April 24, 2012 25 natural women dressed in Pink & Black, gathered in celebration to “meet, greet, and eat” at Dinner with the CurlFriends. Jenell Stewart, founder of KinkyCurlyCoilyMe.com organized this event as a way to encourage natural women to get to know each other more intimately. ”Women often tell me that they don’t know anyone when they attend events and that’s going to change with these dinners,” says Jenell.
The dinner was well received, women of all ages and textures turned out to share drinks and dinner over fun games. Many gifts and raffles were sponsored by Design Essentials, CURLS hair care, NaturallyCurly.com and Sunshine’s Natural & Loving It.
The night started out with the ladies ordering drinks and dinner and lot’s of chatter while they waited. Jenell, the host, had game packets for everyone to review in preparation for the night. When dinner was served, the ladies were told they could not say “HAIR” for the remainder of the night. Do you have any idea how hard it is to avoid using the word “HAIR” for hours at a natural hair event?
At the conclusion of the night representatives of Design Essentials, Ketli and Raina, discussed the benefits of the Design Essentials Natural line, how to use them for hair care and styling, and they answered questions about overall maintenance of natural hair.
Jenell has many new things in store for her readers, viewers, and subscribers. This summer she is speaking at an event “Super Natural” with Kim Coles. And she is hosting 4 more monthly “Dinner with the CurlFriends” where naturals can meet, greet, and eat! If you are in NY, sign up today!
