INSTAGRAM vs #AFROCOMBEX (September Trip)


I recently organised another trip to see the Origins Of The Afro Comb exhibition.
It was a brilliant day and I'd like to say a huge thank you to all the ladies and little-ones that came. 
If you follow me on Instagram I've probably already bombarded your timeline with photos from the day, but incase you're not an avid Instagramer, check out the photos from the weekend, below.










Since the first trip, I've recently met a wonderful and incredibly intelligent young lady called Tina Lasisi who's currently studying at Cambridge uni. The title of her dissertation is "Quantitive Variation of African Hair Pigmentation & Morphology"..... Eerr yah!
Ok so, translated it means the study of differences in the colour and shape of African hair. I look forward to telling you more about Tina and her study >here< in another blog post; but this weekend Tina met up with us, and took us around Cambridge, to the market, and then into the university for lunch, and gave us a chance to participate in her research, by donating some hair.
 I just want to say thank you again to the ladies who encouraged me to organise a second trip. I've always been quite afraid of organising (which is why you've not seen a Crystal Afro/ United KinKdom event before), but you ladies were adamant it should be done, so thanks for the encouragement and support.


Love Crystal Afro xx
