3rd Annual Au Natural Love Hair Conference

Hello guys!

I’ve lately been getting used to my curly hair and I’m thinking about starting to go natural (hair care). I was again on Eventbrite (woo-h00!) and came across a hair conference in Long Beach. I signed up for their 3rd Annual Au Natural Love Hair Conference.

Located at the Grand Event Center in Long Beach, I approached the room and I was greeted with a friendly face.As I checked in, I received a swag bag full of hair care goodies.

There were giveaways, speakers, talks, light refreshments, some entertainment and even a panel.

In the back of the room, there were a few vendors selling their products.

The Panelists:

Thomas TJ Loftin: He’s a business coach and motivational speaker. He spoke about creating and helping each other’s businesses.

Lisa Puerto: She’s an international speaker and bestselling author. She’s the first to write a book about real estate for the youth! If only they would have thought about that in my childhood.

Courntey Danclar: After working mostly for corporate, Courtney traveled to West Africa and thus created Ankara Nation Inc, which is mostly African clothing.

Tracy Sanders: An attorney and author of “Natural Hair in the Workplace: What Are Your Rights?” I never knew an interviewer could deny you after your interview due to natural hair!

Dr. Bambou Ada Diagne: A Nobel Peace Recipient and CEO of International Ventures and Trade, specifically Imports/Exports. She actually started as a midwife, and she mostly exports and imports products from West Africa.

I learned a lot of things business-wise and more about natural hair! I’ve always heard about co-wash but I never knew what it was, until that day! The same with pre-poo.

The creator of this beautiful event was Kelsie Lyn who is a makeup artist and a natural hair specialist.

What I loved the most about this event was it wasn’t all about hair. It’s about loving yourself as you are naturally.

I look forward to the next Au Natural Love Hair Conference!
