On Thursday February 12, 2015, our NYC representative, Lauren attended the Pre Valentine’s Day “Curls on Fleek” dinner presented by Obia Natural Hair Care. The event took place at PIQUANT, a trendy restaurant located on Flatbush Ave in Downtown Brooklyn. The quaint, romantic atmosphere was filled with beautiful Naturally Me !women dressed in shades of pink and reds in conjunction with the Valentine’s Day theme. Curls on Fleek was an event dedicated to teaching women about the pH balance in hair products and how they affect the bonds of natural hair. Obia, owner of Obia Natural Hair Care is a trained Chemist whose insight enlightened everyone present.
