On New Year’s Eve, the Sizzelle team launched the first edition of the Hair Reform Academy in Port Harcourt. I was honored to be one of the speakers along with Dr. Fomsky of Sizzelle and Dr. Janet of the Hair Diva Store. This was my first time speaking about a hair related topic. Unfortunately, I got there a bit late because we had some trouble locating the venue. I’m not too familiar with Port Harcourt. 😥
I arrived during Dr. Fomsky’s second talk on “Basic Hair Care Steps”. Next up was Dr. Janet. She spoke about the key steps for a basic hair regimen. She explained what to do each day, week, and month.
My talk on transitioning to natural hair followed. I discussed my hair journey and explained the mental and physical transition I’m taking to natural hair. Even though I lecture and teach for a living, I was a bit nervous giving the talk. I think I explained myself clearly but I may have talked really quickly. 😯 I think I had nerves because I don’t usually talk about hair. I save all my stories for the blog. 🙂
Dr. Janet cam back to explain what ‘texlaxing’ is and Dr. Fomsky rounded up the talks with a discussion about the various forms of alopecia.
We had an opportunity to answer questions from the guests. They had a myriad of questions ranging from softening hair to hair loss to correct product use. This was my favorite part of the day because we got to interact with the guests. I hope it was helpful for everyone there.
I had to leave after the Q and A because I was going to Umuahia. There was quite a bit of traffic on the road and it took me over 3 hours to get home. I didn’t get a chance to take many photos but I did post some on Instagram. Are you following me yet? 🙂
All in all, it was a good experience. I think there would have been a better turn out at a different time of the year. Many people are usually out of town during the holidays. I truly hope that everyone that attended benefited in some way.
