Join the African Holistic Health Chapter of NY @ the NY Natural Hair Expo this Saturday, Nov 5th @ Harlem's YMCA
If you don’t already know we are ecstatic to announce the coming of our Natural Hair Expo, here in Harlem. Stephanie and Kayce are here to bring a service to our natural sisters & brothers here in Harlem. As new Naturals we ran into many obstacles when it came to knowing how to treat our hair. The purpose of this event is to talk about the beauty of natural hair and to educate people as to how to care for it is our goal. Though workshops and vendors we believe that we can provide a valuable service to our community members.
Of all places, Harlem needs to have an event of this nature. Being populated with so many different cultures and different textures of hair, some people are not familiar with how to care for there natural hair textures. From Locks, twist, braids, Afros, Curls etc. We want you all; so we are reaching out to you, the educator, and the entrepreneur to help our vision come true. We want you to come out and show case to our Harlem Naturals what options they have when it comes to their hair.
Save the Date: Saturday November 5th 2011 from 10:00am-5:00pm.
