We had a blast! We learned, we shared, we were empowered and so much more! More to come!
We are lovers of all things Natural Hair, right? We love tapered cuts, deadlocks, two strand twists, silk outs, crochet braids, wash and gos……..I mean, we can’t get enough of it!
But why? Why do you love natural There are no right or wrong answers. Fullness, Relief of scalp issues, versatility, the pursuit of fabulous hair crush worthy curls, why yes…we like those reasons.
The choice to return to or build a healthy hair regimine for ‘natural’ hair may be inspired by some of those reasons as well as some very unique reasons as well. Traction alopecia, hair thinning, over processed hair, and just the lure of the beautiful pics and videos of coils , curls & kinks . Do you wear your hair natural? or is your hair chemically processed but healthy? Do you need healthy hair advice,maybe you want to try a new hair color for spring? Contemplating a tapered haircut, or a rod set, or updo? Happily relaxed but need a healthier hair regimine? Have you found the perfect regimine and want to share it with the world? Or do you need some inspiration & style tips? We would love to hear your story! Join us as we celebrate International Natural Hair Meetup Day on Sat. May 21st. Bring your curlfriends and meet new ones!
Everyone wants healthy hair. Whether you wear it relaxed or natural, curly or straight, short or long.
At some point everyone searches for answers to improving flaky, itchy, irritated scalp or dry lackluster hair. Or maybe you want tips on how to maintain your child’s wayward tresses. You don’t mind going to the salon, but really need to be able to maintain your hair on you own.
Well guess what? There are groups of liked minded people out there that plan get togethers ,large , small and any size in between!
What happens at these get togethers? Well although the itineraries may vary from host to host and event to event, for the most part there are some basic things to expect:
