Afro Hair & Beauty Live 2012

Hi guys, hope you’re all well. To my UK readers, hope you have enjoyed the 4 day DiamondJubilee Weekend – God Save the Queen lol! But I don’t want to go back to work……

Yesterday (04 June 2012), I went to Afro Hair & Beauty Live with my sister. It’s an annual event held in London, celebrating Black beauty and creativity…..there were shows, competitions, shops and most importantly, freebies!

Here are a few of the pics that I took yesterday:

And here some of the products that came home with me…..

I bought the sprays 2 for £5; plus I got freebie samples

I bought each mag for £1.50; they are the last and current issues.
Normally they're £2.99 each

Some more freebies

These is the hair brand that I usually use on my hair;
the sheen spray was bought for £1.50, while the cream was £3.50
On the left are some sample of the products that I normally use

Pure unrefined Shea Butter
£3 for 100g from Dickson's Natural Beauty Products
website: www.dicksonsnaturalbeautyproducts.com

It’s been about 6/7 years since I last went to Afro Hair & Beauty Live. I think that there has been a great improvement in the products they were promoting – a greater range of organic hair products, better weaves/ hair extensions and better promotion of natural hair and health concerns. The talent was amazing, from the barbers, to the braiders and Avant-Garde stylists (with an Olympic & Jubilee theme!) and young men & women promoting their small businesses and hand made products.

I look forward to next year’s show x

  2. Interesting post. Some of the hairdo looks really nice, some kinda bizarre. Trying to figure out how that blond very high weave was fixed.

  5. This looks like so much fun...but I wonder, is the "Organic Root stimulator" really organic?? I feel like it makes my hair shine but does nothing in terms of nourishment...I want to move on to natural products like Carol's daughter...

  6. Great post. I haven't been for years. The last time I went, Destiny's Child did a PA, I kid you not, Beyonce must have been 16! Good to see that it is still going on.
