Luvina Ann Norwood-Sabree (center) founder of Nappy Headers meet up group in Kileen, TX
Last week I took a short road trip to Kileen, TX to attend another natural/health hair expo in Texas. One of the things I hoped was that I'd see vendors I didn't at the previous expo I attended. There were plenty. I had such a great time. Here's a recap of my trip to Kileen...
|Struck by so much beautiful brown beauty as soon as I walked in...as well as the Shea Moisture booth right at the entrance.|
|Goodies by Shea Moisture...|
|I stopped by to speak with Photographer Larry J. Stephens CEO of EncoreHD Hair Magazine come to find we were already friends on FB. EncoreHD Hair Magazine will feature natural hair styles and will be visiting Dallas, early 2012...I'm already signed up to participate!|
|I love it!!|
|Shea goodies...I regret not taking a pic of the name of this booth but it was packed full of shoppers...I had to get in where I fit in just to get his shot.|
I love incense!! I used to make them back in the day so I stopped and spoke with the owner for a bit. I tested a few scents and with the help from the owner, some he liked, some I liked, we both settled on Touch by Burberry. Been wearing it ever since...it's niiiice...

I HAD to patonize this Sister. It was love at first sight with her long pretty loc's and she sold the prettiest pure horn jewelry I'd seen in awhile. The company is called Earthbalisms. Offering product from fair trade, natural, a nd sustainable resources. Handmade soaps, bath bombs and more...for more info about Earthbalism products go [HERE]
|...and of course I stood around this booth for a minute. I stood in awe at her speed, again, when grooming this Sisters loc's watching Malaika Tamu-Cooper owner of Dreads N' Heads Salon in Baltimore, MD. She also held a workshop during the expo.|
Riyike Jewels by Anike Faleti...so pretty. You can check out more of her designs when you visit her webiste [HERE]
|400 Years Without A Comb showed on the big screen...nice.|
|I didn't catch this Brotha's name but he was the MC announcing the preformers and had major jokes..I was rollin'.|
|You can tell his hands were movin'!!..and lil' mama's too.|
Black is so beautiful.
I didn't attend any of the workshops but I'm they were awesome and very informative. I stood in the lobby and on looked at the Sista's waiting for the next class.
I just love long loc's....
...and so I decided since I was in a city I'd never visted before which happened to me just next to the largest Army base in the world, I decided to walk around a bit.
Enjoying the Artwork posted in the lobby of the Convention Center....
I stopped and picked up a few brochures just in case I return and need to know whats poppin' in Kileen ;o)
On to Fort Hood. Luckily I was rolling with a friend who is an Army Vet and I was able to go on base. I was hoping I'd run into a few Naturalistas on base...and I did...passed out a few cards.
Expo Hair Do...super simple.
