This past Saturday was International Hair Meet Up Day, an annual event where women gather around the world in their respective cities to chat about hair, network and learn some new hair techniques. South Florida's event was hosted by non other than the fabulous ladies of Naturals In The Sun. Held at the Urban League of Broward County, the event featured amazing local vendors including some of my favorite brands, Love Child Essentials and Hey Girlfriend, as well as a head wrap demonstration. By the way, they had an amazing dj! If my legs weren't so wobbly from Crossfit the day before, I would have had no problem dancing the middle of the room by myself.

My absolute favorite part of the event however, was the workshop led by Rochelle of Alikay Naturals. She taught us how to create a hair care regimen and broke everything down step by step. While taking notes, I realized a few things that I've been doing wrong in my hair care journey, including the fact that at present time I have no real regimen. I'm going to just blame that on motherhood, moving and just the madness that is my life in general...but I need to make it a priority again. This was certainly the most informative workshop I've ever attended.

I got to chat with Rochelle briefly as there was a line of ladies eager to meet her. She's so sweet! I had Grey with me so we mainly chatted about how fast babies grow up, as she is also a mommy to a baby boy. Besides loving all the knowledge that she shared during the workshop, it was very inspiring to see a fellow young Jamaican woman blossoming as an entrepreneur. I'm definitely getting my hands on some Alikay Naturals products as soon as I get my pennies together! That Essential Hair Growth Oil needs to be in my possession!

Carla is just everything! I'm so happy that she was able to make it out to the event so that we could catch up. We met at a Curlbox event last summer and have been chatting on social media ever since, but it was so nice to finally see one other in person so we could hug over and over for five minutes. Hope to see you soon love :)
