This was by far one of my most exciting How-To Events, teaching women how to cornrow. The Cornrow Series was more than I imagined and not because my vision became a reality but I created a platform for women to learn about natural hair care and styling techniques. Every how-to event begins with thirty minutes of education about the importance of understanding hair texture and porosity. I truly believe that knowing your hairs texture and porosity will lead to better purchasing decisions when searching for hair products.
I was super excited to collaborate with Dallas Leading Instructor and Hair Stylist, Ashley Danielle. She discussed how to prepare the hair before braiding, how to maintain the hair while in braids and how to care for you hair after removing the braids. Ashley teaches cosmetology at a local Dallas high school, so I knew she would be a great addition for this amazing event.

Not only did we talk about hair but Alexandria Williams The FitHair Expert sponsored the Cornrow Series with healthy delicious appetizers that contribute to healthy hair. The amazing menu included kale salad, chicken meatballs, dark chocolate almonds and refreshing lemon water. During the presentation Alex educated women how eating these foods benefit healthy hair from the inside out.
