Natural Hair Workshop This Weekend: The Kinky Apothecary Presents Felicia Leatherwood – Natural Hair Care Expert & Celebrity Stylist For The First Time Ever In Lagos

THE KINKY APOTHECARY LAUNCHES NATURAL HAIR MONTH

Kicking off on October 11th in Lagos, The Kinky Apothecary, Nigeria’s first one-stop natural hair shop, presents Natural Hair Month; a series of events designed to celebrate the essence of African women in their natural beauty.

The Kinky Apothecary was established in May 2010, with the aim of fostering knowledge about natural hair care in Nigeria. In just a short timeframe of 3 years, The Kinky Apothecary has helped thousands of Nigerian women embrace their natural selves. Their customer base also includes a growing number of relaxed ladies who are beginning to realize the benefit of following a natural hair regime.

Natural Hair Month kicks off on Saturday October 12th at The Wheatbaker, with a workshop by Felicia Leatherwood, Hollywood-based hair expert and stylist to Jill Scott, Viola Davis, Will Smith and a number of others.

Activities continue on Sunday October 13th, with a screening of the much talked-about movie by revered filmmaker Regina Kimbell titled “My Nappy Roots”. The Kinky Apothecary then takes up residence at The Whitespace for 2 weeks with an exhibition on hair organised by artist Temitayo Ogunbiyi. At the same time there will be a ‘Pop Up Shop’. Sacred will be there alongside other vendors selling lots of Goodies and Lola Maja will be there offering makeovers for a limited time. Contact us to book your space.

“In a country where everyone’s hair is naturally kinky, I’ve always found it interesting that there is such a stigma against people who choose to wear theirs as it grows out of their heads. Although it is not our intention to make any sort of political statement, we wanted to create a focus point where our natural hair could be celebrated, and to take a step towards changing ideals of beauty.” Says Nibi Lawson, Founder, The Kinky Apothecary
