Black Ballad & Afrocenchix Presents: The Pioneers, Present & Future Of The British Natural Haircare Movement

Black Ballad has teamed up with British haircare brand, Afrocenchix to create: The Pioneers, Present & Future Of The British Natural Haircare Movement - a mini-documentary not only discussing black hair, but celebrating the black women who've led the British Natural Haircare movement for the past decade or more.

Join us for a night of discussion, drinks, food, networking and the premiere of our documentary about the British Natural Haircare movement produced and directed by Black Ballad editor Jendella Benson. 

The Pioneers, Present & Future of British Natural Hair

The documentary features contributions from some of the women who we consider the pioneers, present & future of the British Natural movement - ranging from award-winning empowerment blogger Jay-Ann Lopez, Care For Your Hair founder Pelumi Rae and veteran hair blogger Crystal Afro, to teenage hair gurus AfroCat365 and KhiasKurls.

Our discussion on the night will be chaired by Black Ballad founder Tobi Oredein and our panel of speakers are: YouTuber and entrepreneur Laila Jean Washington also known as Neffy Fro Fro, artist and creator of Bald Black Girls Ruth Sutoyé and co-founding director of Afrocenchix Rachael Corson.

And of course, Afrocenchix will be providing goodie bags for all attendees.
