Calling all teens with natural hair? Unsure of how to lay your edges, perfect a twist-out or how to care for your hair in braids so it grows and not breaks? Do not miss this workshop led by 2 teen naturalistas who know how to slay naturals kinks and curls.
Ekwy Chukwuji-Nnene and her daughters, Danielle, 15 and Dilichi, 9 have spent the last 9 years understanding their hair, creating regimens, and embracing how they feel about their hair. They have dealt with negative comments on the school playground and have come to reconcile their curls with their friends' straight hair. They have figured out how to create hair confidence and and replace negative hair stories like 'your hair is difficult, your hair is ugly, your hair is not long.' While creating premium and ingredient-conscious haircare brand, Equi Botanics, the mother and daughters trio have learnt that while great products help, it won't replace a child knowing and loving their hair. There is no magical hair potion for that. It starts inside. While Danielle is an athlete, picking up gold medals for 100ml and 4x relay and Dilichi loves drama and starred in Amazon UK Christmas ad, they both help their mum create a lasting legacy for their haircare brand.
