Nappy & Happy: ‘Curlfest’ Celebrates the Sheer Awesomeness of Black Girls and Our Natural Hair (Watch)

*This is their third year, and the festival that brings Black girls, women and even some boys together from around the globe to celebrate their curly hair was on and crackin’ in Brooklyn over the past weekend.

“It’s like Black girl heaven to me. We’re loving ourselves in the sunlight. We’re dressing up, we’re wearing our hair out and happy,” says Michaela Angela Davis — who has a huge blonde fro to die for.”

Another attendee exudes, “I feel like I just dropped into a bouquet of like beautiful black flowers and they’re just all different and I’m just like ‘yaay!'”

A sista wearing long blue curls says, “We’ve all just been fighting what our hair naturally wants to do for so long [that] to just like let it go is the most freeing feeling ever!

A brother wearing his flowing hair long below his shoulders said, “Its a beautiful feeling.” He says being at this event “feels like home.” 

Blackness in all of its beautiful hues is represented at this event, and the sight is nothing short of spectacular. We see women dancing, playing and loving one another openly.

Just like sista’s should!
