Hey Smart Fros! In today’s post, I’m going to be sharing with you my first experience at the World Natural Hair Show (“WNHS”) that was hosted in Atlanta, Georgia. Originally, I had no plans on going until I realized it was the same weekend I scheduled a mini vacation.
This was my first ever natural hair event. WNHS was not what I was expecting. Take away all the free hair goodies, the super low deals and the chance to meet other bloggers this experience left me feeling empowered.

My day started at 9:30 a.m. When I tell you the women came ready, they had on running shoes and rolling bags. I came into the hair show with a list of brands I wanted to try. But honestly, that list went out the window. I quickly realized I wanted to focus on brands I never tried but had great deals.
One of the biggest highlights for me at WNHS was getting the chance to meet the CEO of Obia Naturals. Obia Naturals is one of my favorite natural hair brands, so getting the opportunity to meet the creator was everything to me.
I also attended the Power Panel. Admittedly, I only wanted to go for the free goody bag, but after hearing all the women on the panel tell their stories, specifically the attorney on the panel, I felt so inspired to go after what I want.
I remember one of the panelists said to take three to five things you got from the panel and actually implement it. That message stuck with me the most and is something I wrote down in my goal book for the year.
I left the hair show super excited, my friend and I had so much fun. Not to mention we left the show with four bags of natural hair products.
I decided to share all the products I got in an actual haul video on my channel. You can check out the video down below.
