All Was Well at the Central Virginia Natural Hair, Health & Beauty Expo

This weekend I had the pleasure of attending the Central Virginia Natural Hair, Health & Beauty Expo in Lynchburg, VA. Don’t know much about Lynchburg? It served as Virginia’s state capital from April 6 – 10, 1865, for the few days between the fall of Richmond and the crumbling of the confederacy. It is also home to Liberty University.

This was the third year that Natural by Design/Twisted Sistas, hosted the event and my first year attending. Hair Say was a Silver sponsor and I got to make a 30-minute presentation and have a table where I got to meet plenty of beautiful naturalistas. One of the greatest things about these events is the excitement from the crowd and the attendees came ready to support the various vendors and discussions.

One of the vendors participating was Zuresh. This was amazing! The retailer came fully stocked with products and I ended up buying the Full Body Cleanser, a tee shirt and moisturizer. I can’t wait to use the body cleanser. It smells amazing and is I absolutely love the idea of being able to use one product on my body, face and hair. Also, the product is made especially with those with skin conditions such as excema, psoriasis and other conditions in mind. While I do not deal with these, I do deal with random dark spots and cysts due to estrogen level fluctuations, so will give this a go and review it for you when I do!

The featured expert panel at the event included Naptural Nicole, Santasha Styles, Earashea Knight-Stephenson (CEO of No’Kyem Naturals) and a local stylist.

This my first time sponsoring or speaking at one of these events and the support was awesome. I evem met a few curly ladies who said they already follow Hair Say! That meant so much to me.
