Hey people,

On June 8th, I attended Naija Hair Can Grow's Salon Day Out event. It was jam-packed with people interested in healthy hair care (relaxed, loc'd, natural, transitioning, etc) and also beauty and health. There were quite a number of vendors and people who gave presentations or demos on their products. This was where I was used in the Rhassoul Clay demonstration with Kemi Lewis. I just thought to share some pictures from the event, and if you've never attended a hair meetup, this might inspire you to try one soon. There's Naturals in the City and also Locs Appreciation Day tomorrow in Lagos. I plan on attending both, and with my handy dandy camera! Atilola will also be on ground at both, selling the wonderful African Naturalistas hair products, so come with your cash!

This volunteer has natural hair and opted to try out the Texture Manageability System, which claims that natural hair can be straight for 4 to 6 weeks, and reversed back to the natural texture afterwards.

I didn't get a picture of the straight hair, so I'll borrow a pic from Naija Hair Can Grow

I'll write about Beautiful Textures Texture Manageability System next week. I feel a little weird about the prospect and I'd like to read what other people think.

Have a nice weekend!
