Really excited with my VIP ticket to Natural Hair Week starting in May. I hope that many of you will support this amazing initiative.
Natural Hair is a growing trend globally, largely in UK and US. The Black Hair industry is estimated around $500bn according to Mintel research report. However, a shift from weave, wigs to natural hair is likely to change the game, players and most importantly the perception of 'good hair'.
If you're part of the natural hair movement, what are your experiences going natural?
This is what Natural Hair Week said about their agenda:
