The Philadelphia Natural Hair Show

IMG_1374 (1)I had the honor of being a panelist at the 2016 Philadelphia Natural Hair Show! The topic was  Black Women & The Perception of Beauty within Media! Boy, was it a lively discussion! Colorism, texture discrimination, weaves vs natural hair were some of the topics that got the naturalista’s charged up!

The discussion was the inspiration for my video 5 Clap Backs for Weave Haters. I wanted to push the message that no one is less natural for wearing weave, which was a misconception during the panel.

After the panel I dived right into the festivities! The Philadelphia Hair Show was packed with vendors selling African print clothing, black owned hair care products and natural textured hair companies. I was in heaven! Screen Shot 2016-05-23 at 11.11.13 PMScreen Shot 2016-05-23 at 11.28.46 PM

Companies like Venice Hair Extensions and Runway Curls had their booths ready and open for business. I even ran into my internet friend in my head, Wonder Curl!
