I've only been to one natural hair show before so I still wasn't completely sure what to expect, but I was hoping for a good day out and that's what I got. The day was full of a range of people giving interactive talks on all things hair, skincare, beauty and even healthy eating and lots of vendors selling great products.
I didn't get to make it to all of the talks because I got distracted by all the stands just outside the main room (oops). There were so many vendors - It was great. There were stands there from some amazing UK brands selling beauty and hair products as well as jewellery, magazines, scarves and more. And there was also some favourites from across the pond like Jane Carter and Curls.. I was in my element!
I ended up leaving with some Hibiscus powder, Rhassoul Clay Powder , Earrings and a ring from Meen Clothing and Naturally Made for You Exfoliator and Body Butter!
I really have to give a special mention to the Naturally Made products I bought. They make my skin feel soft like butter, I love them! The prices were reasonable too and the company owner was so lovely to chat too! It's a brand I would definitely recommend.
It was really amazing to see so many naturals all in one place! I saw so many different hairstyles that day and I managed to snap a few of my favourites. This lady's hair was amazing - it looked so healthy and full, I had to take a photo.
As for these locs - I completely love this updo!
The atmosphere was really friendly so it was a great chance to meet lots of other people who are interested in natural hair too ( I say people because it wasn't only women there, there were a few men representing too which was nice to see).
It was a really good opportunity to learn a little bit more about natural hair and how to care for it. I think it was definitely suitable for newly naturals, people who have been natural all their lives and also relaxed ladies wanting to learn a bit more about natural hair - Thats a hard balance to find but I think they pulled it off. The talks were interactive and there was opportunity for people to give their opinions and cause discussion which was pretty interesting. Overall, a really great day and I'm looking forward to next year's.
