On last Saturday I has the pleasure of being apart of the first Natural Hair Salon Road  Trip sponsored by KIA. Swarthy Daisy, The Sistah Chick, Mahogany Knots and Koils by Nature were the natural hair bloggers that were selected to take the road trip and travel to three different Natural Hair Salons to conduct chat session with fellow naturals that were excited to learn amazing tips on properly caring for their natural hair. The first stop on the road trip was The Good Hair Shop located in Lithonia. Atlanta’s very own Sistah Chick was the first to host an intimate session with a host of mothers excited to learn the proper way to care for their kid’s hair.

The second stop on the road trip was to Samplista’s Beauty Boutique which is owned by the renown Robin D. Groover who is also the owner of the famous Too Groovy Salon located here in Atlanta. The host for this stop was none other than one of YouTube’s Natural Hair Guru’s Mahogany Knots. The chat discussed the benefits of taking care of your hair with proper hair techniques and protective styling. The naturals were excited to finally get to meet Mahogany Knots in person. Mahogany Knots is a YouTube sensation that continuously creates signature Natural Styles.

The last stop on the road trip was to Natural Xpression Salon where the CEO of Koils by Nature, Pam Jenkins was the honorary speaker. Pam educated the naturals on the proper use of her products from her Koils by Nature Brand. We were treated on the last stop by receiving a step-by-step tutorial and demonstration on one of our lucky attendees. The Naturalista received a full styling session.

The Natural Hair Salon Road Trip  was covered on all social media outlets by four lovely bloggers: Patty Cake Pearls, Variety Curls, Kiwi The Beauty and Naturalbabydol. I would also like to thank my two sons our junior media: Billy Whitfield, Jr. and Mario McIvy, Jr. The boys were very instrumental in helping me get great photos and they also assisted the videographer with documenting our road trip. We can not forget our Sponsor Kia for the Sorento and Jamaican Mango & Lime for providing us with samples.
