Big hair, straight hair, twists and buns…Curly Nikki brought out the St. Louis curly girls to support her book signing for “Better than good hair: the curly girl guide to healthy, gorgeous natural hair”!
Alicia “Nikki” Walton wrote this with Ernessa T. Carter.
Their book features step-by-step directions on hairstyles, advice to parents on managing their child’s hair, and recipes. There is much more, but of course I was not able to read it in the hour that I spent at the event:). Upon entering the event, not that I was surprised, but I was very happy for Curly Nikki that so many people came out to support. It was a packed house that included representatives from Q-Redew, SheaMoisture, and Essence Magazine. As for the local supporters, I even saw a few men standing in line with their book…perhaps they just have a love for natural haired women, but more than likely they were supporting Curly Nikki on behalf of of their better halves. *thumbs up*

Natural hair is not a fad people!
For many, it’s about a lifestyle change to become a healthier YOU. And for others, confidence has been built and self-esteem increased because of this healthier lifestyle choice. I know, I know…I am not my hair…but one would be crazy to think it isn’t a factor in outer beauty.
Curly Nikki is helping this “movement” to smoothly travel along it’s positive path, one curly girl at a time!
