My Hairstory was born out of a drive to learn and understand natural hair. It is a platform created to connect and provide an opportunity to share stories with like-minded people and get advice on how to take care and learn to love your natural hair.

My Hairstory is a natural hair event which aims to connect individuals with natural hair service providers. Based on our previous successful event, where natural hair service providers showcased their products and gave tips on how to take care of natural hair has been the motivation to host another successful event.

This year we will be exploring “How do we make our school inclusive spaces for the African child”  

Hair policing have become a very hot topic especially within our schools and often times workplaces. My Hairstory will seek to unpack this topic by means of engaged conversation at the event. We have purposely attracted experts that would guide the conversation on what your rights are when faced in a situation where you are discriminated against based on your hair and colour.

These incidents of discrimination often leave us feeling angry and discontent with the way things are. But in that helplessness, we often make a lot of noise and yet nothing happens. We hope the conversation will touch on what action should be taken if the situation arises.

Keeping in tune with sharing of experiences, we have created a program that will allow our exhibitors to engage with different people representing different aspects of hair. We want to chat to industry specialists not only on hair in its physical form but also how our hair is a representation of us at home, in the workplace and ultimately in our worlds.
