Greetings!! It has come time for another Hair Garden Natural Beauties meet-up! I have been wanting to have a meet-up for quite some time but the timing just wasn’t right. I’ve gotten it together and I am ready to continue my mission to provide information and education about caring for the hair and body using natural products and promoting self-acceptance.
As you see in the title, the theme for this meet-up is, “Natural Hair: It’s Not Just a F.A.D. (Fro’s and Dreads)!” That will be the main topic of discussion and the main theme of the giveaways so do a little natural hair research! We will also be discussing summer hair care, hair care and hairstyle trends!! Want to come? Here are the details!
What: Hair Garden Meet-up #5
When: Sunday, July 29, 2012 from 5:30-7:30

On Thursday, December 16, 2010, the Hair Garden Natural Beauties met at Vallarta Mexican Restaurant for the 3rd natural hair and health meet-up! The event took place from 6-8pm. We began the evening by going around the table and introducing ourselves and sharing our natural journey. We had a great turnout this time with 14 ladies attending!
Once everyone started eating, we began the natural hair and body care trivia game and the giveaways. We had questions like, “What is propylene glycol and what personal products are they found in?”, “What are good ways to keep your scalp from being dry and flaky this winter” and “What is the difference between a deep conditioner and a protein conditioner?” With every question answered correctly there were prize options such as, natural hair accessories, bath bombs/fizzies (donated by Mrs. Becky!), samples of shampoo, lavender whipped shea butter and peppermint whipped shea butter.
After we finished the trivia I began the drawing for the big prizes! Shannon was the winner of 8oz raw shea butter, Shon won Hair Garden’s Cleansing Shampoo, Michelle was the winner of the peppermint whipped shea (blossom formula), Nicola won the Lavender whipped shea butter (blossom formula), and Tiffany, Kandis, and Danni were the winners of the avocado deep conditioner. All of the products besides the bath bombs/fizzies were handmade by me. I made them fresh right before the meet-up!
After the games and giveaways, some of the ladies began to participate in karaoke while others hung out and got better acquainted. Everyone had a great time and left with some great prizes and information! Many of us ended up staying all night until the restaurant closed. We had a very positive, enlightening, and productive time and I can’t wait to do it again! This was the last meet-up of 2010 and I am eagerly awaiting the meet-ups of 2011!
One of the ladies that attended the meet-up came in directly after her visit to the barber shop. She got a funky new cut. She said she wanted to try something different and decided on this style. I loved it and thought it was really cute, so I asked her if I could take a picture to post on my blog!
Thank for reading! Blessings!

At Hair Garden’s 2nd natural hair meet-up on October 28, 2010, all the ladies gathered for an evening of learning and fun! We began with mingling and taking a look at all the wonderful products everyone brought in. Some of the products we were familiar with and some were new to us! We followed with good food and played a natural hair care trivia game! While playing the game, many ladies shared their personal hair care regimen and gave us a lot of great ideas! Topics included both hair and skin care. Following the game, everyone introduced their favorite hair or skin product and gave us all of the advantages of the product!
Overall, everyone had a great time and left with some valuable information! I know I did! Hopefully you will be able to join us next time! Plans for the next natural hair meet-up are still in development so stay tuned for details! Thank you!

Hair Garden’s first meet-up was a success. There was a good turn out and I know the number of participants will increase each time!
Everyone met at the new Golden Corral on Bobby Jones Expressway. It was the first time dining at the new location for a lot of us. We started of by doing a meet-and-greet and enjoying dinner together. After chatting for a bit we began playing a natural hair trivia game. I was very impressed with everyone’s knowledge on natural hair and natural hair care! The questions included: “What are 3 ways to keep your natural hair healthy?” and “What does it mean to ‘pre-poo’?”
I was really happy with the way everyone was interacting. They were giving each other advice and encouraging each other along on their natural hair journey. The funny thing is half of the ladies were already natural and the other half were still in the transitioning stages so they were really helpful and supportive of each other! Amongst themselves they did a lot of the hard work for me!
Everyone got to pick out the headbands and accessories of their choice at the end of the game. So far, we are aiming at October 28th for the next natural hair meet-up. I will have the details on the location posted as soon as I get all that sorted out. Hopefully next time we will see you there!
