Going Natural Workshop

My Hair doesn't curl workshop

Invited by the wonderful Candace Kelley, Going Natural was invited to do a workshop at the Let your Hair Down event on Saturday, September 14. Although I’ve heard good things I was never able to make it to one of these events. So I was exited that my agenda allowed it this time to give a Going Natural Workshop in the city. 

My Hair doesn’t curl workshop

Invited by the wonderful Candace Kelley, Going Natural was invited to do a workshop at the Let your Hair Down event on Saturday, September 14. Although I’ve heard good things I was never able to make it to one of these events. So I was exited that my agenda allowed it this time to give a Going Natural Workshop in the city.

Adenike who is like a living encyclopedia when it comes to hair is the ultimate best person to teach a worksnop. Not only does she have a lot of knowledge, she has more than 20 years experience in the business and practise what she preaches. So naturally I hooked up with her to prepare a special workshop.

I am more than humbled by the fact that Adenike choses my products to work with every dat but rather than to sell, the goal of this workshop was to inform. Lurie, her daugher and author of Afro State of Mind was also part of the team to demonstrate how she does her beautiful Twist Out live.

The great thing about workshops for me is the interaction with you the audience. You get to hear about the daily challenges that most of us deal with. For us it’s a chance to show you in real live how we deal with those issues.

The turn out was good, it was a little loud so I appreciated the visitors even more for staying on course and paying attention. I really they enjoyed the workshop as much as I did.

What was most remarkable was Yaa’s response. This beautiful lady with an Afro Puff style was convinced that her hair couln’t keep a coil let alone a curl. Besided that she was also extremely reluctant to try products she wasn’t familiar with. After reading the ingredients of the Curl Keeper she only tried a little bit on her hand, not her hair. 

Then when I asked her if she wanted proof that her hair could coil AND curl. All she had to do was take a seat in Adenike’s chair. After a bit of hesitation she did and what do you know; her hair coiled!

She just couln’t believe it and kept saying but my hair doesn’t curl while smiling. Adenike and I hardly had to do anything after that, as she lovingly and happily showed everyone her beautiful coils. For us it was mission accomplished because all we want is to make you happy with your natural hair and make sure you are aware of all your options.  

For me it was also a first to have had a person in a wheel chair in the audience and what a personality she was.  Shelian Porter was so lively, asked great questions, bought products but most importantly brought to our attention that natural hair salons are not wheel chair friendly. So not only do I like to thank her for coming to our workshop but also making me aware of something I didn’t think about before.
