Curlfest is a Natural Beauty Festival, and was held this past Saturday at Prospect Park in Brooklyn. It was lit af this year. Maybe a little too lit lol. I don’t do well with huge crowds. So I went late in hopes that the crowd would lighten a bit. Nope. No luck. I arrived at 5pm and the crowd was still super thick. I managed to work my way through though to get some pics. Yes it was crowded. It was hot as hell. But it was still a whole lot of fun!
I visited some of the booths to see what special activities were going on. And to see what goodies they had for sale…
I attended the Tropic Isle Living Original Influencer Dinner the night before, so I knew they had the works planned. The theme was bringing the islands to Curlfest with fresh coconuts & sugarcane. Of course I missed it all, including the goodies for sale 🙁
Tropic Isle is celebrating 25 years and has released an entire line up of new hair and body products. I received a few things in my bag from the dinner. I’ll share deets soon.
Alikay Naturals showcased some of their most popular products. I love the Lemongress Leave In & Creme Brulee. The combo creates an amazing Twist Out.
Curls had sold out of everything. But it was great to see my boo @bbeauty87 representing for the brand.
I also ran into my boo @tobnatural
SheaMoisture had a braid bar going on. The line was EXTREMELY long. The ladies were doing their thang though!
I also ran into cuties @curlsfothegirls and @modelesquenic. I hung out with them the night before at the dinner and they are just too adorable!
Singer Riva Precil was in the building. Well on the lawn rather. And she looked gorgeous in her kaftan & headwrap.
Clothing brand Midget Giraffe was in the house with some amazing pieces.
Newbie skincare brand Nyakio was present with some of their line up. The Sweet Almond Cleansing Balm & Kenyan Coffee Face Polish are both amazing!
My girls and I made a little picnic of the event and did some catching up.
We brought the kiddies to hang out as well. Here’s my son (didn’t he get big?!) and my little cousin Jo.
@afginc Caught this amazing shot of my girls and myself. We are actually all cousins except for one. But we love her like an honorary cousin so I’ll say we are all family. Don’t mind my resting b*tch face lol.

We had a ball and I can’t wait to do it again next year. I’ll be sure to come earlier so I won’t miss all of my Instagram Curlfriends again.
