I was introduced to Fro Butter in my Onyx Box last year and loved it. I also became an ambassador for 6 months which was pretty exciting. I got to learn more about the brand and discover some new staple hair products for not only myself but the guys in my life. Here is a video showing how I demo the African Black Soap that you can use to cleanse your hair and body. CLICK HERE TO WATCH!

Fro Butter was founded in 2012 by Susana Stewart who was looking for products that were safe and effective. I will admit that I didn’t always look at the ingredients on my hair products but I am more conscious now. I love that Fro Butter has natural and organic ingredients such as Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Carrot Seed oil and so on. I know what I am putting on my hair and body and feel safe using these products on my son’s hair.

Fro Butter has everything from hair oils, shampoos, cold pressed soap bars to t shirts. I have two of my favorite products pictured above that I use on a regular basis. My husband and son also use these products in their hair and love it. I highly recommend just about everything Fro Butter has to offer and please go support this Black Owned Business.

Let me know some of your favorite hair products. See you guys tomorrow.

~**Drea Notes**~

I honestly feel so much better with taking the pressure off of myself. I also unfollowed a lot of “influencers” who were actually influencing me in a negative way and making me think I had to strive to be like them. I feel like blogging for me will be fun again.

My son already has a long list of toys for Christmas thanks to the Target toy catalog.

 

 

NJ Natural Hair & Beauty Expo

Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of attending the 2nd annual NJ Natural Hair and Beauty Expo. I was excited because it was an event that was not too far away from home and I was attending this event with some friends. We actually turned it into a much needed girl’s weekend where we just relaxed by the pool, ate food, laughed( a lot lol), talked about life and just had a good time.

The NJ Natural Hair and Beauty Expo was created by Keisha “Kei” Reeves two years ago. The event is dedicated to showcasing natural hair and beauty in the New Jersey area. There were guest speakers, hair demos and panels  It also gives exposure to small businesses as well. I really loved that all the businesses were black owned businesses. There was a good mix of hair products, body care, accessories, clothing, authors and so much more. I loved that I was introduced to businesses and products that I have never heard of before.

We underestimated how many people would be in attendance because it was crowded lol! It was a lot of squeezing by people and saying excuse me and sorry for bumping into others. It is good thing when an event is crowded but there was not enough space to really walk around until the early crowd died down. It is the 2nd year and there is room to improve and accommodate everyone in attendance. I was able to get around to visit all the vendors I want to get to.

It was a little hard to pay attention to the main stage while everything was still going on. It was in the same room as the vendors and everyone was talking and shopping and it kind of drowned out who was talking. Again, this is just my takeaway and experience.

Overall I had a good time. It was a great event and awesome to see so many come out and support. I got some new products that I can’t wait to try and also got to support some black owned businesses. I loved that the event was held close to home and did not have to travel very far. I would attend this event again next year.

Hair Demo f/Mielle Organics

I can’t get over it being September already! My son started school yesterday and Fall will be here soon. I wanted to get one last Wash N Go in before the weather changed. I filmed this sometime last month and didn’t like the footage so here is my review of some products by Mielle Organics. I have used their products before but haven’t done a review yet. Enjoy!
