This past weekend the entire Sporty Afros crew hit up the Oklahoma City Naturals expo. We had a blast. Everyone was so nice, it was ridiculous. We were so excited to be featured along with other amazing bloggers such as Beautiful Brwn Baby Dol, Long Hair, Dont Care and Zipporah Beauty!
Personally, I’d never been today Oklahoma City before and I never had the urge to go either. The city itself was ….interesting. It was what I expected, it had a very small town feel, the restaurants closed as soon as it got dark, but what I didn’t expect was the exceptionally kind people. Seriously everyone we encountered, everywhere was ridiculously nice!
Here are some pics from our trip.
OKC Naturals Happy Hour
The venue was fabulous! There was live music, appetizers a bar and art!
I really liked the art, it was really colorful and interesting to look at.
I won a giveaway as soon as I walked in the door!
Then Alex won one!
Then Monisha won one! They thought there was a conspiracy!
This was one of the many Sporty Afros gift baskets we contributed. We took a pic with the lucky winner.

Monisha getting ready for the expo and her speaking session. Yes! She uses the Ayurvedic Oil too!
We had a speaking session and Alex and I chatted about everything from workout hair care to how we cook our meals every week.

Alex and I also had a speaking session on the main stage. We talked about our products and our favorite workout hair care solution, wigs!
I had to fix her wig up!
We did have a cheat meal this weekend. We hit up Bobo’s chicken. It’s an infamous Oklahoma City hole in the wall that serves fried chicken, shrimp and catfish. The kicker is that he covers everything with honey. It was delicious!!!
None of us could finish all of our food. We all took a few bites and immediately got the itis and went to sleep. We have trained our bodies to eat mostly healthy food so although the cheat meal tasted good. We felt pretty sluggish. I needed some salad ASAP!
