Natural Hair Event: International Natural Hair Meetup Day with the rise of Natural Hair tours and meetups the movement of embracing natural beauty has increased. INHMD was held on May 30th, 2015 in various cities all worldwide. INHMD title sponsor was Design Essentials, and I must say I love the gift they packed in our swag bags
The International Natural Hair Meetup Day is an annual one-day event. Its purpose is to allow the opportunity for women across the country to meet in their own communities while networking, sharing and meeting (virtually) other women across the country participating in meetups on the same day. Natural hair meetups are events designed to share information, techniques, inspiration and products to aid individuals in their natural hair journey.
INHMD Ft. Lauderdale was hosted by South Florida’s Natural in the Sun.
You can visit their Naturals in the Sun Facebook Fan Page and/or Naturals in the Sun YouTube Channel for more information about this group. This group consists of three beautiful ladies that goes by the names of Ms. Mojo, Fae Love, and Chanell. The meet-up was a small group; more than 20 less than 30… I should say. The hosts explained that they wanted this meet-up to be very personal and highly interactive. I was able to take some pictures at the end; didn’t want my Canon 60D and Speedlight flash to be lighting up the entire room. I really did enjoy this event, primarily because everyone felt like friends. The entire room was filled with energy and laughter. So participation in the activities were not a problem. Questionnaires, quizzes, raffles, and challenges had full attention. The table I sat at had probably the most liveliest participants, and conversing with fellow naturals was like a blissful moment. Shared stories of families, kids, and husbands supporting wives on their transitions and journey of embracing natural hair. Please enjoy the photos below.
