Ladies' Favorite: Black Girl with Long Hair

As new naturals, we did a lot of online research and are happy to share the blogs that helped us on our path. One of my favorite natural hair blogs is Black Girl With Long Hair, filled with tons of content, beautiful featured natural hair icons, and thought-provoking topics of discussion. And lucky for us, she's based right here in the Windy City.

This summer, we took advantage of the fact that Leila organized a Black Girl With Long Hair Chicago Naturals meetup, at the Little Black Pearl.

It was a great opportunity for natural hair fellowship, information sharing, product-swapping, and of course shopping....

Handmade hair flowers. This one is from Nikki B Boutique.

Here's the beautiful Leila of BlackGirlwithLongHair. It was also a pleasure to meet Patrice, aka Afrobella, often called the Godmother of brown beauty bloggers. These are two of my favorite natural hair blogs out there, and so happy that both of them call Chicago home!

And there was a beautiful exhibit in the works at Little Black Pearl. If you have a chance, definitely check it out!
