Curly Wavy Connect brought together several curly and wavies of the garden city of Bengaluru under one roof! Time flew while we connected, learned, and engaged with each other. The joy we all felt in each other's company was just absolutely infectious :) Cannot wait to see you all again! #honestliz
What We did
Opening Note by Elizabeth Alex. Look. If you’re here, chances are you know me already and I’m kinda uncomfortable with tooting my own horn so I’ll keep this short. We practice self-care in different ways. For me, a big part of my time-for-myself, away from everything else, is the time I spent looking after my hair. Hair care is about more than just looking good. It’s about feeling good, about taking care of yourself, and doing a little bit, every day or two, to make sure that you pamper yourself a little, too. That’s what I talked about.
Beginner tips for curly and wavy hair with Chitra
Chitra, ChitraChaudhuri3435 took the stage to talk about understanding your hair’s properties, being mindful of how your hair feels, how hair reacts to products, and how to style and take care of your hair! It was a super informative session and much appreciated by beginners.
"The session with Chitra was the most informative" ~ participant response as per feedback form
DIY Hair Care with Pavithra
Pavithra, Lifewithpurelycurlie is big on making her natural, eco-friendly lifestyle a part of her curly journey too. She came up with the Green Goddess Mask, the Club Soda Rinse, and in this session, she spoke about easy DIY hacks to nourish your hair - whether or not you use other products too!
LIVE Styling with Elizabeth
Once we finished all the serious schooling, I picked two people and styled their hair live! While styling, I answered questions, talked about what I’m doing and why, and just generally gave some awesome tips and tricks for styling.
