Wow, a lot has happened at "the cottage" since my last blog post.  Yes, we have moved to new premises but that will be another topic soon.

I am so excited for our first meetup in Reading and hope you will attend.

Sheabutter Cottage has teamed up with Naturally Simple Haircare to present our very first Meet 'n' Greet event in Reading, Berkshire!
* Do you have natural hair or are you transitioning?
* Would you like to learn how to care for your/your child's kinky/curly hair?
* Would you like to use more natural hair and beauty products but don't know where to find them?

Come and join us for an afternoon of sharing journeys, tutorials & advice about how to care for your skin & hair naturally! 
Free refreshments will be provided & products will be available to purchase on the day.
Tickets: £3.00, under 16's & OAP's FREE 

Tickets available from Reading Meetup or call 07795 625240

Been combining science with nature lately :)

We understand how difficult it can be at times to maintain and seal in moisture so we came up with this 3-step hair pack.
We like to take care of your hair naturally with this subtly scented trio which comprises of:
* 200ml avocado + moringa shampoo 
* 200ml avocado + coconut leave in conditioner
* 100ml avocado + flaxseed seal & shine oil

Been such a long time since I posted on this blog.  So many things have happened since my last post.

* Launched Sheabutter Cottage in Ghana last year [June 2013]
* Won a GUBA award [November 2013]
etc, etc.

Why not join us via the social media platforms Instagram, FaceBook  to keep up with what is happening at the "cottage".  You can also join us on our Sheabutter Cottage - Ghana fanpage [a bit quiet at the moment] where we will announce our next Sankofa Day event.

Anyway, just returned from Ghana with some new customised/handcrafted products :

We look forward to serving you online/in store

Been quite busy lately in between attending events, packing orders and preparing for our Sankofa Day in Ghana.  
Yes, it is almost time and due to overwhelming response after we sold out of the first 2 sets of tickets, we have decided to make this an open day. All those with tickets are entitled to a FREE swag bag.

Keeping fingers crossed that there is no rain and no power failure.

Bring a friend along not forgetting your purse or wallet and let us have a chat.

I am really looking forward to this and I hope you are too

Best wishes
