All new for Naturals at the Afro Hair and Beauty Live June 2012

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to go to the Afro Hair and Beauty Live this year, but I've only heard good things about, from the lucky ones who went. I go this article, which I thought would be great to share with all the naturals out there. It was that time of the year again, time for Afro Hair and Beauty Live 2012, a show that brings all the latest in beauty and haircare for Black women. This year marked a very special year for the event, 2012 marked the first time that Afro Hair and Beauty Live had a special section dedicated to products designed especially for natural hair. With the natural hair ‘movement’ that is happening around the world, it would have been incomplete to have one of biggest hair shows in Europe not showcasing products for the natural ladies and gents. Just last year only two stands represented the natural hair community, Root2Tip (ran by Sal Ayeesha) and My Hairitage (founded by Ansylla Ramsey). As well as products there were also several workshops being run by the likes of Felicia Leatherwood, Natures Parlour and Root2Tip. Team Blackgirlflow was very pleased indeed to see shows as big as this one recognising the need for diversity and options; although Miss Jessie’s stole the show in terms of location and space, it was nevertheless encouraging to see UK based companies such as Mahogany Naturals, Shea Butter Cottage and Iman Made being represented. A particular one that caught our attention was Noir Essence who are launching their products this September. There were many other vendors present and as we arrived quite close to closing time, we didn’t get much chance to visit them all. One thing we noticed was that there was definitely a balance with what was on offer. Women, whether natural or weaved up are focusing on caring for their own hair, and their were products to cater to all of us. We would have liked to see even more variety in the stands, of course the main focus was hair, but we were disappointed not to see BlackUp cosmetics or even Sleek Make-up, even though they had a massive stand showcasing wigs and weave. All in all it was a great day and the event was definitely worth the visit. Source:
