Unless you were under a rock that was under an even bigger rock, you know that last weekend Afro Punk took place in Brooklyn, New York. Individuals came from near and far to experience the festival that has been called one of the greatest cultural experiences of our time. It is a gumbo of sorts where free spirits, forward thinkers, colorful energy and artistic beings are all served as one delightful dish.
Unfortunately, the Naturally Silk2 family was unable to attend this year but that didn’t stop us from getting our lives (several times). Like many of you, we were tuned in to social media watching live footage and searching the hashtag. Now I know that there is nothing like being present and counted but this was the next best thing and I must admit, I felt the energy.
I was so amazed at the amount of artistic expression that took place. Aside from the acts that showed up and showed out, the audience was filled with bold expressions via personal style from head to toe. Oh, and since we are talking about heads, I must say that the natural beauties were serving up a little bit of everything and I was so inspired!
In the event that you missed out, below you will find a few of my favorite natural hair moment from Afro Punk 2016. Take a look and tell me what you think.

Hello Natural Beauties!
The natural hair movement is alive and thriving which makes us very excited. This excitement is not just from a business perspective, we love seeing so many of you freeing yourselves from the box and embracing your roots, kinks, curls and coils. We believe that this movement exemplifies a more conscious train of thought among many women. Women are realizing that there is no flaw in showing their roots and that being natural is not a burden to personal style, professionalism or beauty. The truth is you can do everything with natural hair that you can do with relaxed hair but you can’t achieve every natural look with relaxed hair.
When we think about our consumers, we think of you as friends… You are our girls! You continue to support us and transition with the brand and we are appreciative. Which is why It is our goal to not only provide you with quality products but to also educate you on your hair and give you a little style inspiration.
Now we know that you are no stranger to being fly but we all can use a little inspiration occasionally and like I stated above we are here for that too. So with that in mind, we decided to share 9 of our favorite Twist-Outs rocked by some natural beauties who prove being naturally you is all good.
