Darling High Tea

29 Nov

Last Friday I was invited to a High Tea hosted by Darling South Africa at Mangwanani Spa.  It was an intimate gathering with women mostly from the beauty division of magazines.  It was a great day that ended in a blissful full body massage.

The event MC was Thuli Tabethe, who began proceedings by showing the trailer to ‘Good Hair’ and then leading a discussion on what we defined as ‘good hair’.  It was interesting to hear everyone’s thoughts.  The discussion reinforced how much stress women go through when it comes to their hair as well as how often hair stylists make mistakes with our hair.

Nthato Mashishi then led a question and answer session where his focus was on healthy hair and keeping hair healthy underneath weaves and braids.  He stressed that for a great hairstyle it was important to take care of the foundation (the hair).

Among the questions asked were how long to keep a weave (about a month) and how often to get a treatment (at least every two weeks).  He was also asked how long it takes for a hairline to recover (it differs with each person).  I really enjoyed the discussion.  Nthato then introduced us to some models who had Darling hair weaves and braids.

After the two sessions we went off to the change rooms to put on robes and slippers.  This was followed by a soothing foot massage and immediately after a full body hot stone massage.  The full body massage was so relaxing I think I fell asleep during the massage!

Thank you Darling South Africa.  I had a great time.
