Hair Food with #ClicksCurls

Today’s post is quite different from what I would normally do, however; I feel like branching out into some lifestyle posts of things that interest me which hopefully you will find appealing too.

I have really fine, thin strands of hair and was becoming concerned and self-conscious about the amount of hair on my head which in my mind was like 13 strands and decreasing each day. I would find an unusual amount of hair on my office chair, on my pillow, my partner’s clothes – scary stuff.

About 2 months ago my friend who owns Marley Grey was looking for people to participate in a trial for her hair product line. I saw the post on Facebook and thought YES I need to do something to protect my hair as it was clear heat styling was not helping and neither were any of the products I was using at the time.

She came around to my house, educated me on the natural hair journey, transitioning, what to expect, her products, what I can and cannot do and showed me how to wash and style my hair using no heat.

I must admit it takes a lot of care and time but I am prepared to do it to protect my hair and keep it healthy so thanks Marion for saving my crown!

OK so that’s the background, I’m 2 months into my natural hair journey and cannot say I will NEVER blow dry my hair again but I do know that I really shouldn’t.

I came across the #ClicksCurls event on Facebook and immediately purchased tickets which sold out in a flash. What really caught my eye was “goodie bag worth over R 1000.00” and boy they weren’t lying. The event was at Spier wine farm, the day was glorious and it was such a lovely opportunity to connect with people on the same journey. I met a blogger I follow MsPaulaBee and also the beautiful Bonnie Mbuli.

There were so many brands handing out product and giving us great suggestions depending on your hair type. I wish I went to the talks and comedy show but we got there really early and by 13:00 I was finished! Another friend of mine said she learnt a lot about how to do a proper wash day (LOC) and came to my house the following day with an afro as fly AF.

I will definitely be keeping a beady eye out for the next one!
