Transcendence Natural Hair Show Review

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010

I’m writing this post at 6:30am on my way to the Food Co-Op in Park Slope. I like to get there early because the place is small and it’s always crowded. Loads of people like to eat organic food for little money and I am one of them. I don’t mind taking the hike from Bensonhurst to Park Slope because to me it is worth it.

I am sitting on an outside train platform waiting for the D. It’s dark. It looks like it could be 10:00 or 11:00pm instead of almost 7:00am! Fall mornings are spooky. The birds are awake and they are busy chatting. I hear a variety of chirps and tweets. I wonder what they are talking about. They are loud too. Uh oh. Somebody got in trouble.

I am thinking about my shopping list as I board the train but, actually, this post is supposed to be about the Transcendence Natural Hair Show I went to last weekend.

The event was free for the public so that is always a plus. The first thing I noticed was the vendors. There were more vendors selling trinkets, jewelry, clothes, purses, natural face products and soaps then there were items for the hair. I was hoping to see hair care products galore plus tools to style natural hair as well as books and even natural hair pieces. This event appeared to be more of an African Arts Festival instead of a natural hair show.

Once I saw that the food was ready I walked in its direction hoping to find a vegetarian dish. “We have curry potatoes you can eat,” the cook said to me. “Do you want to try some?” As I watched the man gather the potatoes on a fork for me to taste I noticed a small piece of meat in the pan. “Oh there is a piece of meat in the dish,” I said. “No it’s not! No it’s not!” “That’s okay. I’ll pass. Thanks anyway.” I was not in the mood to pay for a lie.

I left. I didn’t even stick around to find out if Soul Summit showed up for the house music dance party and I defiantly didn’t go back the next day for the hair show that cost $30. So I did not have a good experience while at my first natural hair show. I wasn’t even inspired to take a lot of pictures but I did capture a few. Check them out below.

Really nice sista promoting her self published book on natural healthcare. I can’t find the literature she gave me, if I even took any, and I can’t read the website on her shirt. Dang!

En’tyce Your Beauty Products is a really cool natural hair care line. Check it out at

    The show had big issues in focus, but what was funny is no one seemed to have a problem with the confusion. The audience that stayed to the end seemed happy with the end result.

    I apologise, but, in my opinion, you are not right. I am assured. Let’s discuss it. Write to me in PM, we will communicate.

    I did stay to the end, but I was very bothered by the confusion and the “MC”.
