On the 9th June 2013, 17 ladies thinking about hair care came together in a local primary school to discuss our thoughts and concerns. We ate, talked, demonstrated, compared, watched and hopefully had a thoroughly good time. I certainly did! Food wins me over really easily, especially chicken (LHM).
Well, how did all of this happen? Do you remember I mentioned that four of us sat down in my house about two weeks before and had a great discussion, for about 3 hours, about how to start the natural hair journey. We talked about what to use, why natural? Myths about hair, good books, videos, favourite YouTubers …etc. Well the spin off from that was to have another meeting, which grew and grew so it could no longer be held at my house but had to be relocated to a larger venue. There were daughters, mothers, friends, grandmothers, whatsappers all coming together to find out what this ‘natural hair’ thing was about.
We are not professionals, we didn’t know what to expect, but did it anyway. Our aim was to share. Our goal is to improve our meetings each time and continue to share what we learn about our very different hair types. Hopefully in the future we can hold an even bigger Bristol hair event.
