UK Naturals Welcome The Beautiful & Brainy Erica Douglas, Also Profoundly Known As Sister Scientist

Sister Scientist

Hey Curlies!
The UK welcomed Erica on Wednesday, March 25th. I had the pleasure of meeting Erica Douglas, commonly known as Sister Scientist, over a lovely evening of curls and conversation amongst other fellow UK Natural Hair influencers. We had a lovely dinner in Central London, Leicester Square where we dinned in Slug and Lettuce with much laughter, held transparent and insightful discussions on our experiences in the beauty industry, top hair care brands and whats missing.
For those of you who are not familiar with Sister Scientist, Erica is a cosmetic chemist and beauty industry expert, who has worked with all of the top hair brands that we are all familiar with such as ORS (Organic Root Stimulator) and Curls Unleashed™.
Erica’s ability to develop new and innovative hair and skin care products stems from her innate creativity and her passion to help others overcome the personal experience she’d overcome. She passionately identifies with hair and skin care struggles and thus she reigns successful in formulating amazing and efficient hair and skin care products catered to women of colour. She combines her formal education in chemistry, personal experiences and extreme knowledge of textured hair to develop new brands that have no doubt created a huge buzz in the multicultural hair world, also helping others achieve and sustain beauty goals.
Having conversed with Erica she expressed her passion with formulating the perfect products for Naturalistas of all hair textures and curl types. Which I personally found to be amazing as its very encouraging to know there is someone within the beauty industry who can relate to and has first hand experience of the trails and triumphs associated with Natural Afro Textured hair and devotes their time and profession to identifying with and creating products/care/assistance catered for women of colour!
Rachy of @UKAfrolista done an amazing job organising and making arrangements for this meet & greet. We were also gifted with products from the ORS  and Curls Unleashed hair care product line (Thank you for the products I can’t wait to try these bad boys!)

All in all is was FAB evening, we laughed, we ate, we talked and talked and TALKED, we shared experiences, educated one another, networked/built relations, expressed a shared love of natural hair and the beauty industry and more importantly we had FUN!
I would love to extend my gratitude to both Erica and Rachy for having taken the time out of their evening to meet and mingle with myself and fellow UK influencers in the natural hair community.
It was a pleasure welcoming Erica on her visit to London! She is most definitely a beautiful person inside and out! I am inspired by her love of science and the beauty industry, I admire how she continues to break stereotypes and encourages young girls to do the same, teaching how science can be fun and that when combined with a fiery passion it is a POWERFUL thing. Thus Erica’s passion allows the expertise in her work to speak volumes! Continue cultivating minds! I look very forward to our next meet, perhaps next time it’ll be on your side of the pond.
