This past Saturday May 18, my two sisters, cousin (an aspiring hair stylist) and I attended the Party Over Hair and The Jade Effect, “For the Naturals who Color” event, held at the swanky Cocoamane hair salon of celebrity hairstylist and creator of Jass Products, Janel Sealy Smith. The Brooklyn based salon was filled with inquisitive attendees, greeted with strawberry and champagne, pastries and delicious appetizers. Smith delivered tips and tricks on how to color your hair, an array of dye types (semi, temp, demi and permanent) the levels of hair color and the process, the different types of highlights, and how to maintain your hair after color. The featured products were Shea Moisture hair color, Reshma Femme Henna dye and Smith’s very own Jass Products.
During the event, Janel presented live hair color demonstrations of both products, my sister volunteered to be transformed from black to blonde with the Shea Moisture hair color in 'light blonde', while another hair model sampled the Reshma Femme Henna dye in 'playful plum'. Our gift bags were packed with natural hair treats: Reshma Femme Henna dye (in a variety of shades, one per bag), and two Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masques, a 'The Jade Effect' pendent and more. Janel gifted each guest a sample of her Lemon acetic rinse, which smells good enough to savor. I can actually say the event was a most certainly a hair party to remember, her greatest tip of all; it’s not the vast amount of products you use but eating healthy and taking vitamins that promotes hair growth.
