October is Natural Hair Month!

Because The Kinky Apothecary says so!

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 time frame 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, 12pm sharp, with a workshop by Felicia Leatherwood, Hollywood-based hair expert and stylist to Jill Scott, Viola Davis, Will Smith and a number of others.

  • Maintenance tips for all hair types

  • Scalp issues
  • Styling and products advice & demos
  • Q & A session
  • Giveaways and goodie bags
  • …and one more surprise!

Online, on Afritickets here. 

Activities continue on Sunday October 13th, with a screening¬†of the much talked-about movie by revered filmmaker Regina¬†Kimbell titled ‚ÄúMy Nappy Roots‚ÄĚ. The Kinky Apothecary then¬†takes up residence at Whitespace for 2 weeks with an¬†exhibition on hair organised by artist Temitayo Ogunbiyi.

‚ÄúIn a country where everyone‚Äôs hair is naturally kinky,¬†I‚Äôve 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.‚ÄĚ Says¬†Nibi Lawson, Founder, The Kinky Apothecary
