2.30pm - Natural hair and self care 

Inspirational YOU proudly present the third instalment of their natural hair and well-being series. 

For black women across the diaspora, the choice of how one wears their hair is at times more than simply a personal choice. Often, it’s rife with social and political implications that can have a profound impact on all aspects of one’s life.

This series is a forum for all to come together and discuss the beauty and visibility of natural hair.  The Black hair care industry is worth £88 million and as utilising the rise of social influencers to reach a new audience. 

This panel of industry influencers will discuss hair maintenance, wellbeing, hair stories, style options, professional experiences and reflections on the importance of self care in an inclusive and lively environment.
