As you may be aware we have a support group on Facebook called the ZedHair Forum. It’s a space that was created to increase interaction among naturals who follow the ZedHair Facebook page. So far we’ve been able to share pictures, stories and advice. We thought it would be nice to take it one step further and have a physical meet up not only so that we could ogle at each other’s hairstyles but also in order to have conversations in real time and stock up on our favourite ZedHair products as well as discover new ones.
We decided a brunch would give us enough time for a good natter, it took place at the Coffee Gallery on Nangwenya Road in Lusaka.
It was a fun gathering and we shared a lot, not just about hair, but books, classic story film adaptations, traditional ceremonies and Nigerian films, conversation was very random and flowed freely but sometimes took some odd turns.
ZedHair Shea Butter, African Black Soap, Mafura and Mongongo were available to buy and we also introduced two new varieties of our Zambian herbal cleanser Chiswita alongside recipe cards for DIY enthusiasts.
We plan on having more of these gatherings in different towns and cities. These meet ups will not be a replacement for workshops which are a great way for us to tackle topics in depth.
Our next workshop will take place in October. Look out for announcements about the workshop date and venue and join the ZedHair Forum if you’d like to come along to one of our exclusive events.
