Pin6ShareTweetShareEmail6 SharesAs promised I’m sharing my pics and recap of Nashville’s INHMD or International Natural Hair Meetup Day Event.INHMD Nashville was held at Emma Bistro and had a GREAT attendance turnout. There was a nice variety of vendors, good finger foods and refreshments, great giveaways and an all around awesome time.We even had some ladies dressed in hair show caricature, to keep things festive. Here’s me and my big preggo headed Ussie shot.Me and Max Closet Model, Egypt.I volunteered at the VIP ticket table, which gave me an opportunity to meet & greet many of the ladies attending.Obia Ewah, CEO of Obia Naturals, was our distinguished guest speaker. Her speech was all about the science of natural hair and educating us on the benefits and the dangers of many of the products that naturals use. She talked extensively about PH levels and how we should stay aware of the PH of many of our hair products so that we stay within a healthy 4.5 to 5.5 final range for our hair. She also spoke about the correct order of applying products so that at the end of our wash/style regimen’s, we settle at a good PH. Although I was aware of a lot of this, it really was enlightening to hear about the health dangers of certain ingredients we often overlook in our products.One point she made that I will start incorporating in my regimen is using the proper oils/ingredients that are known to absorb well into the hair shaft vs. just focusing on popular styling products/ingredients.CHECK THIS OUT ✴ Nashville Indoor Fun: 7 Reasons to Choose Lane Motor Museum Over the MoviesFor instance, she talked about how using base oils such as Argan Oil, Jojoba and Coconut Oil after conditioning is best vs. using thick butters like Shea Butter, which really only coat the hair and seal in moisture.I like to use an Ayurvedic Herbal Oil mix from Keravada before sealing, so I think I’m safe, but I will pay closer attention to the PH levels of my products from now on. I’m gonna start by buying a box of PH strips asap!Emma Bistro is a great venue for meetup events. Industrial, Very Nice space. It was a packed house for INHMD NashvilleHow I Wore My HairSo I found a bomb hairstyle to attempt, but at the last-minute I ran out of time so here’s how I ended up styling my hair. I decided to do a quick 30 minute twisted updo, sort of a play off of Contender #3 in my original event post. This was super easy to do and thanks to my ever-growing stash of extension hair, I was able to create my own funky twist style in no time with 3 packs of Kanekalon hair.
