Last weekend I attended the Crowned Glory Natural Hair Event by hosted by Adwoa the founder of Moisture Love Hair and Trina Jones.
It was a great afternoon just for us natural women to meet, oh yeah and one natural men Pierre, Adwoa’s husband. I love to see spouses support each other in reaching their dreams.
I was impressed by how Pierre is so involved in the manufacturing of Moisture Love Hair Line and Adwoa did an awesome presentation on how to take care of our natural hair.
It was a very interactive session with women sharing their tips and tricks as well as the products used. Most of them were just basic simple affordable products because it is not about how much you spend but about the quality of the product. Most of the products I use myself are in my pantry and fridge killing 2 birds with one stone. I go for beauty on a budget.
My daughter’s hair is so thick and takes literally ages to dry so a good natural hair dryer is a necessity. Amanda has written an article on the Best Hooded Dryer for African American Hair perfect for taking care of your natural hair.
Adwoa also mentioned that she uses natural ingredients for her products which is great for our hair.
We also learnt about the preservatives we need to watch out for when we buy our products.
Natural hair is general dry so the Moisture Love Hair Line is meant to moisturise natural hair.
We had lots of laughter, food and connected. I believe that a lot of misconceptions we have about ourselves are based on our self-esteem.
Just because everyone around you has straight hair does not mean you should stop being you and embracing your curls.
Trina Jones shared some hair styles which I surely will be adopting for versatility.
Girl love the mane you were born with
I was particularly so happy to hear my daughter sharing her hair stories from her school environment. Above all I am proud that she is embraced who she is and loves her curls. Her friends saw her with her hair down out at one of the parties and where in awe of her hair. She shared that her friends got a petition with over 25 signatures for her to wear her hair out on the first day of school after school holiday.
I often hear parents saying that their girls have very tough hair which is difficult to manage. I wonder if these parents are aware of how by their very own words they are destroying their little girl’s self-esteem. They will grow up thinking that there is something wrong with their hair.
It is about time we build our little girls’ self-esteem by seeing beauty in them and speaking positive about how they look.
My goal is to raise and empower my kids to see themselves as beautiful, love the way they look. I do not want their beauty to be defined by media or anyone else other than themselves.
