Although I got there EXTREMELY late, it was encouraging to hear Ashley speak about why she decided to go natural and her natural hair journey. Through her trials and errors, she decided to document her journey to share with others. She encouraged the women and men to do what they think is best for them...to carefully consider the “natural” process before committing or giving it up. I think everyone who attended left encouraged and motivated to stay the course. :-) Check out her website here.
Secondly, if you are looking to join a meetup group in the Triad area, have you considered Gate City Naturals? They gather together natural hair enthusiast , natural hair care professionals, and those that are curious about or beginning to go natural to build a place of education, support, network, and fellowship in the local natural hair community. They empower the natural hair community and continue to encourage them to redefine the mold of westernized beauty that is constantly promoted in mainstream media. AND they continue beyond the fade but make it a lifetime journey as God, our Creator, intended our hair to be. Check out their next event! If you're in the Triangle area, and want to join me at a meetup, sign up here! We will be holding more meetups in this year at least once a month! Remember, consistency this year! :-)
Lastly, if I lived in Greensboro, I definitely would join Em Creative Fitness and Wellness!!! They have an AFFORDABLE exercise and weight loss program that’s too good to pass up! The before and after pics of men and women who’d lost weight is unbelievable! IF you live in Greensboro, please patronize this business! AND I almost forgot to tell you that you can get some ah-mazing smoothies that won’t break the bank!!! Delicious and nutritious! You can’t beat it! I had the Very Berry with an extra scoop of protein...cost...$5.95 for 16 oz! Seriously!
Do you have a gym or wellness center that’s affordable in your city???
