I'm back! Well...back from Atlanta that is. I had a great time at the World Natural Hair Show last weekend and still trying to catch up on some sleep.
In the exhibitor hall I met a lot of new and old friends (many who I correspond with over email often but rarely get a chance to meet in person). I spent a good chunk of my Saturday purchasing some hair products, checking out the vendor booths and chatting with people.
Here are some quick video highlights:
Here are some photo highlights:

I love seeing works by Black authors
Nicole of Nycole Naturals–she'll be at INHMD INDY on May 21
Stacy, a new curlie I met who has a hair care line called Urbanaire Gypsy.
Overall I had a great time! I did notice there were a few vendors that weren't there that I was looking forward to interacting with but overall, a good crowd. There was a good balance of hair care, fashion and jewelry available. I did not attend any workshops.
Once I returned home I found I didn't buy a lot of products (probably because I have my staples and know what works best for me), but I did buy a few things. The products from Uncle Funky's Daughter are for a friend. All of the samples I received for free (along with a boatload of pamphlets and business cards-not pictured).
I purchased the following:
Metal pik ($2)
Afro Centric t-shirt ($20)
Eden Body Works Deep Conditioner ($6)
Honey Pot ($10)
I didn't go crazy lol but I enjoyed myself. Two new brands I discovered were Urbanaire Gypsy (the small jar pictured above) and Honey Pot. I'm excited to try the Urbaanaire Gypsy clay wash because it smells so good! Just. like. chocolate!
Honey Pot is a new product as well made especially for your lady parts. It is a feminine wash with nothing but natural oils. After looking over the ingredients and in full approval, I decided to support the business. I'll have reviews on these two products soon.
