Natural Hair Oils (VIDEO) It was another hot, summer day in July. The Octavia’s Natural Hair Care team members took a break from natural hair salon work to attend and present at the DuSable Museum ‘s 39th annual arts and crafts festival. ( www.dusablemuseum.org )
This year’s DuSable Museum festival theme was DU SOMETHING GREEN. The event showcased organic artists and craftsmen. The festival's atmosphere grabbed you from the parking lot and drew in visitors like a piped piper with the head nodding, hip shaking live band music blasting through the main stage speakers. The festival friendly aromas of Nag Champa incense, funnel cakes and jerk chicken filled the air.
Our team’s goal for the day:
- Partner with the community organization, Blacks In Green (BIG). For more information, please visit the website at www.blacksingreen.org
- Support Local Vendors
- Promote natural hair care services
Thanks to BIG's founder, Naomi Davis, I had the rare opportunity to share tent space with master clay and woodmaking artists. Even though it was hot like fire, I remained steadfast in my mission to promote natural hair. Despite the heat, I gave a brief presentation on how to infuse organic oils with herbs; ie: Octavia’s Boss Blend. (check out the video)
Complementing the day was a joyous opportunity to see my friend, Keith Pervius. He is an extraordinary entreprenuer, artist who co-owns my favorite local graphic design company, Art on the Loose.
Even better, I supported a local hand-made jewelry vendor, Own your Own Image Boutique, firstname.lastname@example.org. and scored me some cultural bling.
