This woman is THE BOMB!
Do you know who Felicia Leatherwood is? If you're all about natural hair then you should know who she is. For those of you who don't... She is the amazing natural stylist of the stars. In 2016 I traveled to LA twice just for the privilege to meet her and learn from her. When she came to Oakland in October, I was front and center. She has a beautiful way of uplifting you as she empowers you to live out your natural hair fantasies. I could sit and listen to her talk about hair for days.
So check it, I'm at the Oakland event and I'm sitting on the aisle listening to her speak. It was a health and wellness fair for women in this industry. I came as the totally supportive fan, while everyone else there was in the business Networking and making connections. I'm listening to Felicia speak as she has the entire audience engaged as she speaks. Even though I'm sitting on the aisle I'm not exactly certain that she would remember me since I know she meets so many people regularly. So check it, she's speaking, everyone is engaged and she stops and says, "I remember you. How are you doing?" Then she rubs my shoulder and continues to speak. Can you say I wanted to jump up and say YES! Felicia Leatherwood remembers me! Cause I'm a true fan of her work and I support her. LOL! I've followed her on Instagram for years. Then when she went on periscope I was a regular subscriber to her channel and Mahogany Knots. On Instagram she has THOUSANDS of followers, the audience was a lot smaller and I made it my business to tune in whenever she went live. Like I said I could listen to her speak all day everyday. Anywho that's how I made myself seem to her. If you don't already follow her brand check her out on Instagram @lovingyourhair . Google Loving Your Hair With Natural Care to find her Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, etc.
I bought 5 Felicia Leatherwood Detanglers in case I lost one. I gave my teenager her own so that she would leave mine alone. It didn't work but one can dream can't they? I love my brush and I tell everyone that they need one. Go to Brushlove.com to order one today. When I ordered the first I figured I'd give it a try since I had a denman brush already. Immediately I noticed that my detangling sessions resulted in significantly less hair loss. That's when I fell in love. I gave cousin her own pink one cause I didn't want to give away one of my five. So what! Call me stingy, but when I found something good I'm not letting it go.
Also through Felicia's last event in LA that I went to, I discovered Auntie Jackie's product line. I personally love her flaxseed elongating gel, her Quench leave-in conditioner, and her deep conditioner. As of now I have to order these products on line cause I can't find it locally. These three products have become staples for me.
I can't wait for the next season of Insecure to watch her work enhance Issa's work. She has quite the list of clientele. Don't believe me, checkout her pics on Instagram for a visual list of the folks she's worked with. Anyways, I'm still trying to figure out how I can make it to her event later on this month. If I can make it, expect more pictures.
As always, thank you for reading. Please support my friend and follow her wherever you can, you won't regret it.
