EVENT- WHAT WENT DOWN AT THE NAIJA HAIR CAN GROW SALOON DAY OUT

Hi everyone! irregular blogging has been my sin since this year, but I promise to repent. lol! So the NHCG event was hosted and organised by Dabs of Chic Savvy hair and beauty hub, as she celebrated her 5 years in the blogosphere with an interesting event that took place at Oriental Hotel Lagos . Congrats Dabs! There were 5 interesting speakers who enlightened us about their Natural hair journey, Texlaxed hair, Relaxed hair, Fros, Locs, Weaves and all forms of hair in the First stage of the event



We heard from Sandra ofwww.naijagirlnextdoor.blogspot.com ,Atilola of African Naturalistas, Dabs of Naija Hair Can Grow , Lade and Koyin a registered Trichologist

STUFFS I LEARNT
- That Alopecia (hair loss) is hereditary, it cant be cured but controlled
- That as a Naturalista, you don't need to always run a comb through your hair
- That if you are having receding hairline from always wearing hijab( hair covering for muslims female) you should wear silk hijabs and don't tighten your hijabs so as to prevent hair loss
- Most importantly I learnt there are different strokes for different folks in terms of the kind of products we use on our hair *Stop being a product junkie
- I learnt about the instant fro locks invented by Dabs
- I learnt how to make the instant hair updo by Kemi lewis
- I learnt a LOT! if you didn't come, you missed, just watch out for pictures here.
I, getting ready for the event. I like the fierceness from the red lips, red top and metallic head band *Cleopatra* winks*

Myself and the beautiful Sandra of Naija Girl Next Door she is so soft spoken, insightful, ever smiling and ready to mingle kind of person, really wanted to talk more with her, but she was so busy granting interviews

 I & Ade, I love her hair style

The second stage of the event saw Hair stylists do their thing.

Today, I will be showing a practical demonstration on how I transformed my bronze hoop earring, using African print "Ankara" I have had this bronze earring for 5 years now, it started wearing off, then I tot to myself why discard it?
