I've got really screwy hair. LOVE IT.
Been trying to do this for a few days now–thanks, WordPress–then got swept up with work.
A quick update on the meet-up via Natural Nigerian’s blog:
All the pieces are coming together nicely. Screwyhair and I have been working hard behind the scenes (actually she has been working harder than me, lol!). I am pleased to say that we have received a lot of positive feedback regarding the event. It would appear that this is long awaited. I am super excited and I hope you are too.
Screwyhair (who is also an incredible graphics designer) will have posters ready next week. They will contain information concerning the meet up. I am considering creating another page on this blog specially dedicated to meet-up information so that it is all in one place rather than being interspersed with other posts.
To give you a sneak preview into what is coming, we have secured a lovely venue which has the right sort of ambiance for a cozy, relaxed meet up. Several topics regarding hair – its science, care, product use and more will be discussed. There will be a nutritionist on hand to explain how what we eat affects the quality of our skin, hair and health. There will be a demonstration on how to handle hair properly and a giveaway (a.k.a A-W-O-O-F, lol!). I get tons of questions about where to source certain tools, ingredients and products – there will be quite a few at the meet up.
We also want to hear from YOU, so please bring all your stories, tips and tricks so that we may learn from each other.
Just to clarify, this meet up is not by any chance restricted to those who have natural hair alone. My friend is currently rocking a Brazilian/Peruvian weave atop her relaxed hair and she is going to be there to learn what she can about handling her hair in its current state as well as other things concerning her skin and health. The meet up is not just about hair, but promoting a natural way of living as it is all connected.
Regarding a date, it will definitely hold in November. Please check back here and on Screwy’s blog for more information.
