Last Saturday, we #TurnedUp and showed out, at Naturals in The City 9! It was a great afternoon at Social Place*, and our lovely attendees collectively crushed it! Beautiful hair and good vibes in abundance 🙂 I know, I know, you wish you came too. 😛
The theme for the meet-up was “Maintaining Hair Length” and we had 3 brilliant speakers. Mosh Udobang of Naturalosity and Ade Balogun of Locitude talked hair and after them, professional fittie, personal trainer and gym manager, Adura_O talked about eating right on a Nigerian diet and embracing exercise. There were A LOT of questions asked after each talk, and Adura had the most. It’s good to know that we are as enthusiastic about the health of our bodies as we are about hair! 😉
We had a raffle draw at the end, and 4 lucky people won prizes from Tunmise Naturals. There was plenty to buy in The Gallery, where our vendors displayed. At this meet-up, we had 11: Aweni Organics, Oh So Smoothies, Bose’s Atelier, Olori Cosmetics, African Naturalistas, Locitude, Beautifully Nappy, Namaste Organics, Tunmise Naturals, Natural Nigerian and Fashion Strings.
Because we were so busy, we totally forgot about the Product Swap (this won’t happen at the next meet *face palm*), but the Medical Hair Clinic did happen. Dr Agility Ihesie consulted with the people who wanted to see her. I cannot tell you how that went because it was private and highly confidential, but I trust that it went well. 🙂
Enough with the talk-talk, I took photos. Like 300.
Kidding! Not really.Enjoy!
It is always SO encouraging to meet other curlies! And it was really nice to finally see my virtual blog friends in person! Natural Nigerian is really awesome, she has been driving these meets since 2011! It’s not easy! Thank you to everyone who came, and if you didn’t make it to this one, maybe we’ll see you next year? 🙂
If you were at NiTC9, how did you like it? What would you like us to do differently? We’d like to know! And if you blogged about it, kindly leave a link to the post in the comments so I could add it to this post. 🙂
