Late November 2016 I attended the It’s a Natural Thang Fall/Winter Meet Up. I was glad to see my favorite vendors were there. I missed the headwrap workshop though. I did see the product demonstration for the Diversame drying tool. Diversame is a drying tool made for natural/afro textured, coiled and curly hair textures. It will hopefully be coming to the market sometime in 2017.
I was hoping Good Body Stuff had my Baby and Vanilla Sandalwood Buttas. That wasn’t the case. I decided to try the smaller size in the Candy and Egyptian Musk Buttas.
Sweethearted has some really cute designs. I knew ahead of time I wanted to purchase one of her t-shirts. The Give Me My Puffs beanie hat is just in time for the colder temperatures.
The natural deodorant from D’s Natural Products has replaced my Aromaco from Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics. I had purchased the Blackseed Soap previously. This is the new and improved version of the soap. The Pink Sugar incense are my favorite.
Nikki’s Magic Wand was also in attendance. I purchased a purple and a nude pink shade in the liquid matte lipsticks.
Another successful It’s a Natural Thang Meet Up in the books. It felt great supporting local businesses.

A couple of weeks ago I attended the Marketplace Mingle and Cocktail Party from It’s a Natural Thang. Each attendee received samples of Aunt Jackie’s hair products. The Marketplace Mingle gave local vendors the opportunity to sale their products. I was glad to see two of my favorite vendors there.
- Aunt Jackie’s Quench Moisture Intensive Leave-In Conditioner
- Aunt Jackie’s Don’t Shrink Flaxseed Elongating Curling Gel
I previously purchased shea body butter from Good Body Stuff. This time around I purchased the Baby Butter and Sandalwood Butter. My skin loves this stuff! Check out the website at http://tsbgoodbodystuff.com/
I couldn’t resist purchasing this t-shirt from Sweethearted. I saw this shirt on her Instagram and knew I had to have it. Please feel free to check out the website as well. http://www.sweethearted.com/
I don’t remember the vendor I purchased these earrings from. I like the fact this is a septum clip too.
This is what I won from the pink elephant gift exchange. The Hask Argan Oil Repairing Hair Kit and Hask Argan Oil Healing Shine Hair Treatment.
Happy shopping. 🙂

The International Natural Hair Meetup Day was held Saturday May 30, 2015. Various locations throughout the world held this event. I attended the International Natural Hair Meet Up that was held in Pittsburgh, PA. The Pittsburgh based natural hair group It’s a Natural Thang sponsored this event In addition to having wonderful vendors, this event concluded with a special presentation. The presentation was called “International Hair, The Diaspora Edition: The drum, the braid, the dance.” The presentation documented the story of African descendants and gave an account of hairstyles/headwraps and dance traditions.
