Yandy Smith encourages attendees to be more conscious about the products they use on their hair.

VH1’s Yandy Smith hosted the Mielle Organics brand ambassador launch event at Deuces & the Diamond Club in Chicago. Over 200 guest attended the event which was MC’d by Bravo TV’s Africa Miranda and included style demos by Remy V Fab Style Ambassador Chris Curse and Stanford grad and natural hair products chemist, Erica Douglas a.k.a Sister Scientist.





The Mielle Organics mission to Empower, Excite and Educate was woven through the event. Africa Miranda engaged the crowd with social media trivia and giveaways and Sister Scientist presented a segment describing how chemicals affect African American hair and the importance of the ‘LCO’ method (liquid, cream, oil) to retain moisture and length. Smith, who made a grand entrance created a fan and media frenzy taking pictures and greeting several of the guests.
