Mizani 2013 Trends Event: THE SPOKEN WORD, For Natural & Healthy Hair Hosted by Kim Coles in NYC

So Mizani has products for natural hair you ask?! YES, YES and YES!!! The other night I had a wonderful time at The Spoken Word Event, another beautiful Natural Hair shindig!! This time for Mizani featuring Kim Coles and a slew of UBER-talented stylists. The very first thing that caught my eye upon entering the SOHO locale was the Mizani Natural Curl Key brochure, which gives an in-depth description of individual curl-types as well as the products to use for each type. Honestly, it was the MOST comprehensive natural hair brochure I have EVER seen. What makes their line so different from others is that yes, they do have natural hair-specific products (the True Textures Line), but the majority of their other products can also be used on natural hair. I will be keeping it in my personal bag o’ tricks for myself, as well as my curly friends 😉 As if that wasn’t enough, we were serenaded with the sounds of very talented spoken-word artists and a few lines by Kim Coles herself, not to mention the amazing DJ Amanda Seales.

At the end of the night as we were leaving we received a gift bag which included a few goodies. One of my favorites was the Mizani Supreme Oil (use a few drops for shine & restoration of hair). Another favorite was something from Kim Coles herself! It was her new book, simply called, Gratitude Journal…”Choose to Live Life Out Loud”. I am eager to start Living Life Out Loud (as if I already don’t 😉 and I would encourage you to do the same.
