I attended the African Pride Beauty Social National Tour two weeks ago. Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to stay the entire time because I had to work at the MAC counter that day, but I did at least get a few pictures and some info on how the brand has made several changes.
Once it was time for the event to start, we were officially welcomed by one of African Pride’s reps. Next Camila Crews, the African Pride Content Specialist, educated us on the new and improved changes with the brand. One of the first things she did was ask us if we knew about the brand. Then she asked what African Pride products we were most familiar with. There was an overwhelming response of the Braid Spray and the grease. I definitely used to use both. She acknowledged that these two items were their most popular products. She also let us know that the braid spray is even good for people who have locs, or sew-ins. She then introduced us to a couple of brand new products and the redesigned packaging. Next Camila showed us how the products had been used on two different models with different hair types.
Here’s the official press release for the event:
African Pride Hair Care continued their national “Ultimate Beauty Social” Tour in Houston, Texas on Saturday, April 6th, at the Royal Sonesta Hotel. A transparent conversation on beauty over brunch was hosted by beauty bloggers Shalanda Turner (LiveLifeinStyle.com), Tamara Floyd (NaturalHairRules.com), special guest author Audrey Sivasothy (The Science of Black Hair) and African Pride’s Content Director – Camila Crews. The conversation opened the floor for discussion topics including: hair style choice in the workplace, writing your own rules when it comes to your hair, how women are no longer monolithic and how to celebrate individual beauty. The event showcased new products from the African Pride Family Brands’ Collections including Olive Miracle, Shea Butter Miracle and DreamKids. All products are affordably priced under $7.99 and sold at local beauty retailers and stores such as Sallys Beauty Supply, Family Dollar and Walmart.
