As a product junkie, i should be banned from all natural hair shows and someone let me into Motel Studios where Antidote Street, one of the UK’s premiere online shopping sites for natural hair, held a hair event with the extra mod cons of a trichologist from Fulham Scalp and Hair Clinic, a hair stylist and as sought after hair care brands such as Curly by Nature, Design Essentials, Hug My Hair, Frizz Free Hair and Miss Jessie’s
Prescribed and curated hair and scalp care products were also available at the Fulham Hair and Scalp stall and I will need to pick a few when I go in for my full consultation. Tickets were going for normal entry and a consultant session either with a Stylist or Trichologist. My trichologist session proved what i had been nasty about all Autumn, there’s a lot of scaling around my hairline and my seborrheic dermatitis has flared up. Stress and diet could be a factor but now I know what the problems and I can deal with it, instead of rubbing my scalp raw.
The next event was the I Define Me Tour Queen’s Tea Party, hosted by the queen and personification of Black Girl Magic Rachy of UK Afrolista. It was a gorgeous meet up of beauty, lots and lots of natural hair and brains discussing topics such as the effects of being a natural haired beauty at work, how it affects or affected relationships amongst other cultural issues surrounding black womanhood. It is an event I will go to again and again
The year 2016 started in one of my favourite places with one of my favourite people, Pelumi of Care for Your Hair UK. Mama has a gorgeous mane and hosted another one of her brunches which I raved about from last summer. We had lovely lifestyle coaches and nutritionist give us a great and informative start to the year and the goody bags were heavy and well thought out…just the way I like it.
At a time, where a pair of comfy socks and binge watching How to Get Away with murder is in vogue, it is nice to go out and have a conversation about life and all the crazy thats going on in your head. You may learn about the wheel of life or why night shades foods aren’t so awesome. A nutritionist may confirm, that mashed avocado on toast, with smoked salmon and sliced eggs isn’t as healthy together as you thought.
Go out there but wrap up warm.
