I know it’s been a long time coming, but forgive me!! Let’s dive in. As seen on The Curly Hair Magazine, London.
Not so long ago I was contacted with the opportunity to join the team of Camille Rose Naturals at the World Natural Hair Health & Beauty Show . I love all natural hair and all things that encompass it; Camille Rose Naturals is an amazing brand so I knew it would be a great time!
The World Natural Hair Healthy Lifestyle Event started out 20 years ago started out as an empowering, energizing annual celebration of natural hair. 2o years later it has developed into a weekend long outlet for fun, music, and natural hair for all. “This event has grown over the years from 25 exhibit booths and 200 attendees to 250 exhibit booths and over 30,000 attendees.” And from the looks of it, they don’t intend to stop! It now features a ton of brands that showcase their products for sale at prices as low as 40% off and workshops for hair treatment and product use and styling and to empower educate and celebrate natural hair for women, children and men alike! Major Sponsors include Mielle Organics and Camille Rose Naturals!
I attended the Show on Sunday the 23rd and arrived there to meet the Camille Rose team at 9 am sharp. All of the ladies working had amazing curl-popping hair, and I was in heaven. The show started at 11 but there was already a line and we could all feel the excitement. No one but vendors in the event at time meant no-lines and more samples so some of the ladies went out to shop, but I wanted to take it all in.
Camille Rose Naturals was started by Janelle Stephens- a mother and master mixologist who comes up with all the bomb products. She is a vegan, natural hair loving superwoman. She had such a kind spirit- and so humble too.
It was such a good feeling to be around people who loved natural hair and truly healthy products as much as I did! The great thing about events like these is that you can NETWORK! It’s all about whom you know, and if you come as you are, you will attract people who what to hear about you and what you’re passionate about. I met so many amazing women, all who loves natural hair, loves Camille Rose and most of all, who wanted to learn. I was able to speak about my passions and what made me spark, and people could tell.
Thank you so much to Camille Rose Naturals, and Janelle Stephens (of course) for this amazing experience. Also big thanks and hugs to my new Curl-Friend Julianne Jones, a.k.a Julzwithaz on YouTube, for photographing the event!
Sending all of you smiles and sunshine on this beautiful day to be alive.
