Natural Hair UG Meetup at Machame [Recap]
Natural Hair UG celebrated it’s first milestone not too long ago; one year of interacting with and sharing natural hair stories on our Facebook Group. Shortly after that we held our first ever meetup… Being able to put faces to names, hearing from the lovely informative vendors and relaxing with a plate of good food were some of the benefits of this meetup.
There was also a variety of hair styles to inspire any naturalista who may feel stuck at one point or another. Many thanks to the organisers for making this dream a reality. It was lovely to meet each and every one of the ladies and gentlemen that were in attendance.
Here are some of my personal best photos from the meetup… enjoy!
The shorter hairstyles were quite impressive as they showed how versatile natural hair can be within the first couple of months after a big chop. Sampled below are a twist out, bantu knot out and sponge coils.
Updos were the most popular for the mid to longer length categories. The ladies really displayed creativity and brought out the beauty of type 4 natural hair. We also had an informative demo on how to care for and style children’s natural hair while still maintaining their rights.
Protective Hair Styles
Not everybody had their hair out for the natural hair UG meetup. Some ladies had their natural hair tucked away in protective styles as shown below. It goes to show how limitless the options are for natural hair care.
Many thanks to the lovely vendors that exhibited at the natural hair UG meetup. They had some awesome products on display, samples for most people and gave inspirational and educational talks about natural hair care.
