My African Pride and Niche Parent 13

One of the things that I have appreciated about the 21st century is the growth in the number of black women who are wearing their hair in natural styles. By natural I mean without chemicals used to straighten their hair like chemical relaxers and perms. I love seeing women embracing their hair in its natural state and see so much creativity in style from wearing it straight - by pressing it with heat or leaving it kinky curly and everything in between. When I first went natural I was in a SERIOUS minority, especially here in Atlanta and when I rocked my short fro many people immediately assumed that I was a lesbian or from the Caribbean(?) because very few women had short natural hair.

There are many companies that are now expanding their lines to include products specifically suited for naturalistas. African Pride is a company that has been catering to naturals for years, I’ve been familiar with their products for at least the past 15 years.

The line has expanded and carries the original, products for kids and products for hair that is “mixed” - in transition, kinky curly, etc. I am quite happy to say that I’ve been selected as the 2013 African Pride  DreamKids Mommy Blogger for the Niche Parent conference  powered by WalMart. 

I will be tweeting and instagramming live throughout the event and even doing a meet-and-greet at the African Pride DreamKids Pop-Up Salon during the conference. Follow me throughout the weekend #NicheParent13 #DreamKidsMommyBlogger

Please be on the lookout for my updates before, during and after the conference. Follow me on Instagram, twitter and facebook so you don’t miss a thing!
