The April edition of the Vitamilk Girl talk monthly hangout, dubbed The Natural Hair Month, took place on the 7th of May, 2017. The venue for the hangout was the family salon, located in Kwabenya, Accra.
The Family Salon is a salon that specialises in natural and protective hairstyles, pedicure and manicure. It is called the Family salon because they have a special room for every stage in life; the kids, pre-teens, teens and adults. They also have a cinema and a playground.
30 ladies who were born in the month of April were to be part of this hangout. The ladies started arriving at the venue from 1pm. By 3pm, almost all the 30 ladies had arrived. They were received on the playground and served with bottles of Vitamilk as well as Savana, Hunters.
The hangout kicked with a discussion segment where various topics of interest were discussed. The ladies put across their take on the very educative and interesting topics. They laughed together, advised and encouraged one another in the process.
Some of the ladies went in to choose various natural hairstyles and it was done for them. Other girls were getting their pedicure and manicure done simultaneously. The rest of the ladies played games such as ampe while they waited for their turn.
The ladies were served with some delicious yam and chicken. They socialized and interacted with one another as they ate.
The ladies were treated to a special movie session after the hairstyling, pedicure and manicure session at the Salon’s cinema.
A big cake designed by Oriental Cake, located inside the Palace Shopping Mall, was cut by the ladies to climax the hangout.
The hangout was sponsored by Vitamilk and The Family Salon with support from Oriental Cake.
