If you’ve been following us online, you might’ve seen us promoting a Friendsgiving Brunch. We’ve hosted several brunch events in the past and thought it’d be great to do one around the Thanksgiving holiday. Our Friendsgiving Brunch was last weekend at Harlem Tavern. We had a good time eating great food and chatting with old and new friends.
Swag bag items were provided by Up Mountain Switchel, Amazin’ Raisin, Kokie Cosmetics, MiracleFlax, Dharma Bars, Cusa Tea, and Rooted Treasure. We also featured brands like Marc Anthony True Professional and Cherokeeweah in our raffle giveaways. Below are the goodies from the swag bag.
It wouldn’t be a Type 4 Naturals event without speaking about hair at one point. Some ladies expressed interest in my hairstyle so I decided to share. Due to packing swag bags the night before I had two choices: wear a low faux bun or a wash and go. I chose the latter, co-washing my hair with the Jane Carter Curl Drench Cleansing Co-Wash following up with the Bee Mine Organics BEE•U•Ti• FUL Moisturizing Deep Conditioner.
After finger detangling, I used a combination of the Jane Carter Untangle Me Weightless Leave-in, Kinky Tresses Nourishing Hair Oil and Coconut Mango Hair Butter to moisturize and seal.
A few months ago I shared my general method of how to get a bomb wash and go for your kinky hair. In addition to making sure it is wet and detangled, I included that you should use products that work. Since I was limited with time, I used the Coconut Mango Hair Butter as my styler. Using the butter sealed in more moisture than gel and I still had definition. Here is the final look of my hair and wearing the Kokie Cosmetics lipstick along with photos of the event.
