The WITJ Natural Hair Show

Did you have fun last bank holiday? I had a really lovely weekend. On the Sunday we planted loads of shrubs and flowers in our garden, we have just had it landscaped so it was nice to get a boarder in and next year it’s going to look fantastic. On the Monday I helped out my uncle, he had a stall at Carnival in Powis square, so I was on there serving food. However it’s the Saturday that you are probably most interested in.

On Saturday I headed down to the Woman in the Jungle Natural Hair Show which was held at the Tower Bridge Hotel. I styled my hair in a big bun as it is getting quite long now but when I got in I saw the Design Essentials Stall who asked me if I wanted to have my hair done.

How I left my house..

So after watching the amazing Kadija Kamara singing on stage and viewing all the stalls buying a few bits an bobs I took them up on the offer.

My hair was styled by Gloria from Esence Natural Hair Salon in Harrow (details are in my salon directory on the website)  She did bantu knots at the side and two strand twists down the middle. The twists when dry would be undo to create a sort of fro hawk.

All Done

The style wasn’t really for me and when I got home I took it out straight away. However it was lovely to fully try out the products and see how they worked and to try a new hair stylist who clearly has the talent for our hair.

To be honest this was a hair growth product. I was a bit suspicious because how does it know you only want the hair on your head to grow longer?
