DCN Weekly Recap 8.1.14

Life happens and I don’t post as often as I would like to. My drafts folder is a hot mess of reviews and articles I never finished.  Sometimes it is quicker to just post a picture and comment on facebook or instagram than it is to write a blog post. But I am taking a tip from my boy Jor-El over at ManeManBlog and going to include a weekly recap.  This is something I can definitely commit to.  This will be a combination of sales, dope styles, hot topics and whatever else has caught my eye this week.

Upcoming Review: TreLuxe Hi! Definition Curl Enhancer

Derby City Naturals Wash n Go with TreLuxe Hi Definition Spoiler alert: I loved it. My hair + mucilage gels = happy Haley.  I was able to get four day hair with the TreLuxe Hi Definition Curl Enhancer.  I probably could have went longer but I work out 6 of 7 days and going four days without washing is super gross.  But man did my hair look good.

Natural News: Electric Lady x Janelle Monae

As if I needed another reason to love Janelle, this video is giving me all of my life. I simply adore her and that HAIRRRRRRR. I am gonna learn that step they do in this video, if you see it online somewhere link me. Also if you haven’t purchased her album do yourself a favor and cop that.

Natural Hair Happenings 10/12

There have been lots of things going on in the natural hair world, fall has been kicked off in a major way.  And while we are thinking of pumpkins, scarves and autumn hues let me put a little spring twinkle in your eye. 

Saturday April 6th 2013, Return of the Curls is coming to Louisville, KY and it will be hosted by your’s truly.  I am so geeked [insert roger rabbit here] For more info on this event check out Return of the Curls website, fb, twitter and instagram. *save the date* 

In other news, can we get a handclap for the FABULOUS Tarin Boone? I was thrilled to attend Fro Fashion Week Fall 2012 (recap forthcoming) but I can tell you that it was hands down the best natural hair event I have ever attended. The event also celebrated Jessicurl’s 10 year anniversary!
