The tour will feature interactive workshops providing personalized healthy hair care regimens, product education, hair growth tips and techniques, strategies for transitioning, styling demos and more! The International Natural Hair Meetup Day is an annual one-day event. Its purpose is to allow the opportunity for women across the country to meet in their own communities while networking, sharing and meeting (virtually) other women across the country participating in meetups on the same day. Natural hair meetups are events designed to share information, techniques, inspiration and products to aid individuals in their natural hair journey. Attendees of the natural hair meetup will be able to: Meet other naturals in your area Gain exposure to natural hair product lines and companies Meet natural hair and beauty bloggers and Youtube vloggers Discover resources, techniques, products and people that can serve as inspiration and information for the natural hair care journey Speakers Constance Cash is the founder of Team Natural and the founding editor of IAmTeamNatural.com, a personal initiative that hosts natural hair events. In various venues, Constance expresses her passion for helping those who are transitioning to their natural roots, and provides inspiration for her followers throughout their journeys. Over the past three years, Team Natural has become well-known on several social media platforms (specifically Facebook and Instagram), maintaining a presence in the natural hair community and inspiring women all over the world to embrace their “natural” roots. Team Natural was honored to make Essence.com’s List of “100 Favorite Natural Instagram Pages” in both 2012 and 2014, as well as NaturallyCurly.com's “12 Most Popular Natural Hair Instagrammers” in 2014. These successes were the inspiration that drove her to begin planning natural hair events. Team Natural's current followings on Facebook, Instagram, and other social networks include more than 200,000 naturals, and this number is continuously growing. Audrey Davis-Sivasothy is a Houston-based health scientist, a consultant for the cosmetology industry, and the bestselling author of The Science of Black Hair, Hair Care Rehab, and The Science of Transitioning. The Science of Black Hair was born many years ago out of Audrey’s frustration with her own thinning, breaking hair, and the absolute lack of resources available to educate women of color about proper textured haircare. In fact, many of the scientifically-oriented books on hair care framed it as a hair form that was different from the norm,and either discussed textured hair in only a few paragraphs, or neglected to address its needs altogether. In the early 2000s, there was neither YouTube nor major blogs, and only a handful of websites dedicated to textured hair. Additionally, there were no authoritative, comprehensive science-based texts dedicated to caring for black hair in its natural and/or chemically-processed states. The Science of Black Hair was created to fill this void. Sumetra Reed, aka Natural Metra, is a fun-loving, down-to-earth naturalista who is known in the natural hair community as The Flat Twist-Out Queen.
