The celebration was attended by top natural hair bloggers and vloggers, including Naptural85 and Jenell of KinkyCurlyCoilyMe, and the hair porn was intense… Check out 26 photos of the epic natural hair at Curlfest.

Don’t do that to yourself. The idea behind this is to encourage people to embrace their true selves. In fact, I think it’s for you. .… and hey, you are more black enough. Hugs

I love this festival. I have never been because I don’t think I would be welcome… I am not african american. I am Italian. but my hair is quite the same as any mixed woman out there! lol. my entire life people tried getting me to straighten my hair! It took me a long time not to be ashamed of my hair. But I truly love my natural curls! Frizzy or defined, they are part of what makes me me (so does the weather, lol). I love the message this festival displays to us women, no matter what your ethnicity.… Read more »

What you said is like a black woman saying “I am scared to go outside without wearing a silky hair weave because I might not be accepted” This festival promotes inclusion not exclusion

Inspiring! Black hair is so unique. We’re the only race with hair that doesn’t fall down — our hair is full of life and body! Why would we to want to change that?

MMmmm, beautiful sisters all that may be missing is beautiful character, the inward beauty, which to me is most important. The beautiful personality of the woman-self respect and personal dignity. To me is like admiring all the beautiful animals in the wild or in a zoo, but which I would want to take home, maybe none until I am sure there is a personality match with the physical beauty.

The fact that you watch Black women like “animals in the wild or the zoo” wondering which one you can “take home” makes me suspect that you might be the one with the missing character.

I can drool, trip over my shoes, and bump into a wall if I stare at these pictures too long. I really like how they carry themselves, wear fashion statement earrings, shirts and just Jewerly emphasizing their heritage. I like what they wear, they are not showing too much, they are comfortable. I like seeing big hair and it being up and out. It tells me they are confident and have inner peace. The photo I stared at the longest was the woman in the white dress praying. Natural hair is cool and aesthetic. It’s nice that it’s being celebrated… Read more »

I was there, and it was an amazing energy and experience. I cannot wait until Curlfest 2016. You had to rsvp at curlygirlcollective.com by a certain date in order to receive a swag bag full of awesome natural hair care products. I’m still on a curlfest high. That’s how dope it was.
