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 as an empowering, energising annual celebration of natural hair. 20 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! There are workshops for hair treatment, product use, styling and booths set up 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 9am sharp. All of the ladies working had amazing curl-popping hair, and I was in heaven.
The show started at 11am but there was already a line and we could all feel the excitement.
No one but vendors in the event at that time, meant, no-lines and more samples ,so some of the ladies went out to shop, but I wanted to take it all in.
Peep Janelle Stephens on the right with her and in her hair- promoting products, naturally!
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 has such a kind spirit- and so humble too.
Working hard, selling harder!
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 want to hear about you and what you're passionate about. I met so many amazing women, all who love natural hair, love Camille Rose and most of all, who wanted to learn. I was able to speak about my passion and what made me spark, and people could tell. As a brand ambassador, I talked about the products, and helped some curl moms get their kids' hair popping as well! It was all good fun.
I had to snag some products of my own!
I met this funny ray of sunshine too!
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!
Oh and by the well, yes. Yes we did sell out.

Sending all of you smiles and sunshine on this beautiful day to be alive.
