Healthy Hair Meetup UK | We came, we saw, we were beautiful!
This is a quick post for those ladies (and gents) who were unable to be at the meetup, as well as a fun picture share with those who did attend! We had around 25 ladies turn up on Sunday and we were a nice international bunch. With folks from the States and Germany, we had a real mix of ladies (not to mention my buddy from Russia!).
The Elixir Bar really was a perfect venue with friendly staff and great multimedia backup. They were also very accommodating of our haircare obsessions! lol! It's good when your venue host knows the benefits of jojoba oil already!
We had three provisional sponsors when preparing for the meetup but for the day, we had 2 lovely sponsors on the ground: The Calabash Hub and The Goody Box UK!
With refreshments flowing, we jumped right into the presentations with a "Healthy Hair Basics" talk to start with. Then, a Q&A followed: important questions on pH, hair typing and regimens cropped up here!
We had two further presentations: a "Headwrapping demonstration" by Sis E of the Calabash Hub and a "Haircare Tips and Tricks" talk by myself.
In between presentations, we would chat, eat and browse the natural goodies on sale!
I really enjoyed the headwrap presentation - though I know most enjoyed it from the feedback we've received. I was touched by the generosity of both our sponsors on this event (helping with compiling the goodie bags and giving samples away!).
My final few words would be, look out for the next event on the 29th of April being organised by Sis E, a "Product Making/Kitchen Treasures workshop". It promises to be informative and hands-on so get your tickets early! I better go get mine!
The next Healthy Hair Meetup should be in mid-to-late June by God's grace (if not earlier!). It looks like hair conditioning with homemade treatments and twisting / braiding workshops are going to be the order of the day: from the feedback forms...yay! I will get cracking on that one! Can't wait!
Video coming soon!
