The exhibitors' booths, hair-care sessions, and shows at the Caribbean Natural Hair Show, put on by Island Natural and I Am LOCD, lived up to its name and did not disappoint.

Held at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel last Sunday, the doors of the Montego Suite were opened as early as midday, and the event was jam-packed with activities to keep naturalistas busy as they were being educated at every turn about the importance of caring for their natural tresses.

From one corner to the next, there was something for everyone - jewellery, customised T-shirts, healthy food, hair products and accessories, styling demos, books, and so much more, all at very affordable prices, to help naturalistas take care of themselves from head to toe.

To top that, there were trivia questions with great giveaways from sponsors and distributors present. They saved the best for last, and the main events - hair and fashion shows - were well worth the wait.

Patrons were brought to their feet when the hair show kicked off with a mixture of colours and styles courtesy of Jus Naturals Hair Studio.

Dana Edwards' designs - with sexy but classy shorts, edgy tank tops, and flirty maxi skirts - were next to hit the stage and had the audience screaming.
