Motions Naturally You Luncheon Recap


In a scene similar to the one where Bernie gets her hair cut off in Waiting to Exhale, I walked in to a salon a year and a half ago and cut my shoulder length tresses in to a pixie. I hated the end result so I started wearing weaves.  I allowed the back to grow natural, while perming the “leave-out” in the front. Finally, I decided I wanted to go completely natural and I began transitioning. I haven’t mastered the perfect twist out yet, so I’ve been wearing my super straight wig, Belinda, out.

I talked to a few natural friends and they recommended products that were upwards of $40 dollars. I can’t fathom spending that much money on hair products, so I was happy when I was given the chance to try out Motions’ new collection, Naturally You, aimed at women who are natural or going natural. At $6.99-$9.99, the Motions products – which are infused with shea butter, coconut, and avocado oils – are perfectly in line with the budget I set aside for beauty products.

In addition to trying the products, I got to attend a fabulous luncheon hosted Motions at the chic Mondrian Hotel in Soho. I’d gotten my wisdom teeth out two days before and had been living on a cold liquid diet, so I went to town on the delicious fish tacos, pasta, and spinach at the luncheon.

While the food was great, the event was more than just stuffing our faces.  We learned about the Motions products and got to ask Motions Global Ambassador and celebrity hairstylist Ursula Stephen (the woman behind Rihanna’s luscious locs) questions about hair care. Stephen encouraged using lots of conditioner while transitioning. “You want to keep the line between relaxed and natural hair conditioned or it will snap off.” She also recommends everyone – relaxed, natural, or transitioning – get a steam treatment at least once a month.

The event was a great opportunity to get dressed up, meet new people, get some tips on how to take care of my hair while going from relaxed to natural.

Whether you’re wearing your natural hair in tightly-coiled curls, loose ringlets, flowing waves or super straight, new Motions Naturally You products are specially-formulated to moisturize your hair with essential natural oils.
