Announcing the African Naturalistas online Natural Hair meet up

Hi naturalistas,

I am doing this post in order to announce an exciting new project. I have come to understand that many naturalistas have so many questions and things to clarify, when it comes to this natural hair journey. And also, not many of these naturalistas are opportune to attend natural hair meet ups in Nigeria or whatever country they are, due to one factor or the other.

This is the reason why I am hosting an online meet up on 21 September 2013. It is a live forum where ladies can come and ask me and other experienced naturalistas questions about natural hair. You can come and contribute, help other naturalistas with their issues, etc. You can network with other ladies, and even introduce your business to them, and exchange contacts.



The upside to this online meet up is

1. It is not time restrictive. It starts by 1.00 p.m. GMT (Be guided by the British time), and will end by 7.00 p.m. You can therefore join in, and leave any time, and even join again. So this won't affect your weekend cooking or cleaning up, lol.

2. It is not location restrictive. Whether you are at home, joining the meet up from your laptop, or at a wedding, giving advise from your phone, it doesn't matter. As long as you have your device, and are hooked up to the internet, you are already on. Everyone all over the world can participate.

3. Long after the online meet up is over, you can always still come and ask lingering questions, and you are sure they'll get answered sooner or later, since everyone will still be part of the group.

4. Just think about the people you will meet, those long-standing issues you will finally get to thrash, the business connections you will make, etc.

So what do you need to do to become part of this online meet up?

Simple. Just join our facebook forum here. Voila! Come September 21st, you are a part of the meet up.

Note that this is not our facebook fan page. On the forum, no one is boss, there is neither fan nor celeb, lol.

So remember the details.

Event: African Naturalistas online Natural Hair meet up
Date: Saturday, 21st September 2013
Time: 1.00 p.m. to 7.00 p.m. (GMT). I believe naturalistas from the US and other Americas will be joining us later in the event.
Venue: On your computer, phone, tablet, in whatever room, position, and posture you find yourself. Just click here to join.

See you all then. It promises to be an exciting time.

  2. cool! that would be 8am-2pm eastern standard time for me. coincidentally, I'm going to be hosting a workshop at the Toronto Naturals and Beauty event, so we'll see if i'm able to. I've never taken part in any event like this, so it sounds very cool to me!

    1. What I feel is that you can even work this to our advantage, such that you can drop some of the tips you are picking up from your event on the forum, since everyone will be online to learn.

  3. It seems like every comment I leave here is me endorsing something. First, let me say this is a brilliant concept, and second...your jojoba oil is making my hair VERY happy!
