African Naturalistas Team Meeting

I don't know if you've checked out the African Naturalistas Team page lately, but chances are that you haven't noticed one or two changes. If you take a quick look, you'll see short notes and photos of the African Naturalistas founder and the weekly contributors (minus 2 Team members, whose names are missing from the list).

Our aim here on AN is to bring you our lovely readers, posts every single day (sometimes twice a day) on all things related to natural hair care. Last weekend, we had a meeting with the local (Nigerian-based) contributors. Can you believe it was the first time we've ever had a meeting?!?!?!? Anyways, it was lovely to sit with everyone and talk about ways we can make African Naturalistas BLOG better for YOU! If you remember, we won the BEST BEAUTY/HAIR BLOG in the Nigerian Blog Awards earlier this year. We want to keep giving you great content everyday, so please definitely make your suggestions in the comments below. What would you like to see more of? What would you like us to talk more about? I personally want to see more posts of African Naturalistas Brides!!!! Hopefully, I will have a post or 2 in the coming weeks (simply email berrydakara@gmail.com to be featured).

Here are a few photos from the meeting. We certainly missed our friends abroad - Discovering Natural (USA), Irene aka Kenyan Mystic (England), and Beenzu Mapani aka Bee (Zambia).
