This is my second attempt at writing this post, after my first perfectly good post vanished into thin air when I tried to add an image *head bowed, shoulders slumped in near defeat*. I was about to give up because I was soooo peeved, but I thought to myself, 'No. I will NOT let technological mishaps get the better of me', so after going away and returning a day later I discovered my ‘lost’ post hiding within the blogger app after I randomly downloaded it onto my iPhone.
Crazy right?? There I was thinking my post had been lost forever and up it crops in the most unexpected of places….just goes to show if you revisit something with a clear and calm head, things can turn around - well you get what I mean.
The Curls Unleashed team were brilliant. They were really friendly and welcoming and there was a lot of great information on hand from scalp analysis to advice on common hair issues. I really wanted to get a scalp analysis but the place was heaving. I think there were about 150 ladies and a smattering of gents in attendance so interest was high and queues were long. That didn't matter though as I bumped into a whole host of lovely bloggers from the hair and beauty scene. Nicola from Belle Noir Bride , Michelle from KurlsKoilsKinks , Fiona from Love your Tresses , Nyla from Kulchicbeauty . I could go on but I’m sure you get the picture. The place was filled with wall to wall beauties wanting to support and be involved with the natural hair and beauty community. The atmosphere was abuzz.
I was impressed to see a nail bar available for you to get your nails done professionally using the prettiest of polishes and an expert was on hand to apply eyelash extensions which looked amazingly natural. There was entertainment in the form of Omar, yes the Omar that sings 'Nothing like this'. Plenty of reminiscing about my teens when that tune came on. I'm getting old.
So that was my Thursday evening, I hope to try the products soon and report back. Got lots going on at the moment, not to mention the Curvolution's Curls dayout event at The Crown Plaza hotel at Docklands on Saturday. That is sure to be a good one. Watch this space to find out how I got on. In the meantime I'll leave you with some pics from Thursday night's shenanigans....
