EVENT REVIEW: Natural in Nashville’s NINmeetup

Sorry I’ve been MIA, but my duties at Natural in Nashville kinda took over my life! Natural in Nashville is a natural hair and lifestyle blog I created. The blog has been around for about 3 years and this was out first major event. We had our natural hair meetup on Sunday and it went wonderfully! There’s a gang of pictures on Instagram (@NaturalinNash). So, make your way over there.

A natural hair meet-up is a time for women (usually women of color) to get together and discuss hair! Traditionally, black and Latino women would use chemical processes to straighten their hair, but now, there’s a major movement to encourage women to stop using harsh chemical straighteners in their hair. Various studies suggest the chemical straighteners are linked to high amounts of fibroid tumors and other health issues (source).

That’s one of the reasons why Natural in Nashville is so important to me. Of course, with both sites (Fab Glance and Natural in Nashville) my number one aim is to help women feel good about themselves. Whether it’s the clothes they wear or how they style their hair, all women should feel confident. The confidence factor was quite evident at the meet-up on Sunday. Plenty of attendants came to me and said they loved the solidarity of sisterhood in the room. I loved it!
