    I felt like the OP.at my first natural hair show. Now I don't go because I don't want to pay to stand in lines all day for one product or if it's not crowded there are no no vendors.

    Whitley, when I attended the NC Natural Hair Expo it was not all about curl definition at all. There were all kinds of fros, locks, and twas there. I've been to that one twice. In Richmond, Va, I go to Happily Natural Day every year and it is not all about making the hair into loose curls/curl definition either. Everyone will have differing experiences.

    Still go! Your experience might be different at a different show. A lot of the booths at the show here are local so maybe that plays a minor role.

    I haven't been to a Natural Hair Show in a few years. I either hear about them too late or I'm on my way out of town when they are occurring. However, at this point, my only reason for going to a Natural Hair Show is to get certain products at a discounted price (ie 2 for 1 deals etc) and/or some cute natural tees. Other than that, all the other distractions, I bypass.

    @Whitley, like others have suggested, go ahead and attend the Natural Hair Show in your area and enjoy it. Your experience might prove to be different from the OP's.

    I've been to two natural hair shows (WNHS in Atlanta). I'm a bit of product junkie so I go primarily to rack up on cheap products and samples. I also find awesome tees and jewelry on the low. Going to my first year natural really motivated me to stay natural. All the heads of beautiful hair, all textures and styles. People where happy to talk to you about what they used, how they washed/detangled/styled. I have a lot of friends who are natural but hate talking about hair so the hair shows help me get my questions out to people who don't mind answering. I couldn't care less what the vendors were pushing/highlighting. I'm pretty specific in what I want so I also ask about the benefits of the ingredients/moisture/amount of hold etc.

    Never been to one. Would like to go one day. I would imagine that the types of experiences would vary from event to event. So I would not take the experience that one person at one hair show had and paint all of them with the broad stroke of the brush.

    i'm done with natural meet ups/ shows in NYC because i haven't been to one that has done it right. the event space is always small because it is hard getting a large space in NYC because of the price. too many people in one cramped space makes it a sweat box. we have so many naturals in NYC and can't get our shows on the level of atl or bmore.

    and call me a brat if you will but dammit i want a goodie bag. i never get a goodie bag.
    [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]just want to say thanks to my angel whoever you are. thanks for making me pretty in pank

    Yo I beez bloggin' check me at vivalaunderdog.tumblr.com (I finally made it happen).
