Update | An Evening with Afrocenchix!
This event happened on Sunday 27th November 2011 at the Terrace Kitchen & Bar, Norbury (Streatham hill area).
I only found out about this a week before the event through my lovely Hairlista buddy (Hey Leentora!).
We were chatting on Hairlista and I quickly emailed the organisers to see if there was room for one more...lol!
It was a nice evening out at a chilled bar with about 30 - 50 (I suck at guessing numbers) people in attendance. Mainly women, of course but also a handful of toddlers and about 6 men!
We had the singer, Lanre, performing a couple of her songs for us with a presentation by the founders of Afrocenchix. These two young ladies are doing their thing!
From the question and answer session, I realised that most natural and newly-natural ladies still had alot to learn about their hair. Its strengths, weaknesses and of course, its growth potential.
Afterall, I am almost hip length now, 3 years into my hair journey! I am fully Nigerian and did come a long way to realise that my hair could realise longer lengths. Part of the reason I am still holding onto my texlaxed/relaxed ends is because I want to realise the true potential of my hair.
If my combined length reaches tailbone, then I can chop and know it will grow back to there...and maybe even beyond that.
I'm really considering organising black hair care events in UK throughout the year. For relaxed and natural ladies: to learn about the TLC we can give to our hair and that we do not have to believe the lie:
"Black hair can't grow long" (Myth)
That's not true for me and, I hope you grow (excuse the pun) to refute it too!
Video of event will be posted soon! Thanks for dropping by! ♥
