Wooli Me Natural Hair Expo Los Angeles, November 28
When I recently joined the Natural Haircare Los Angeles group I learned about the Wooli Me Natural Hair Expo. Â News of this after Thanksgiving day weekend event gave me more excitement than Black Friday Shopping andÂ Cyber Monday deals combined. Â The lyrics to soul singer India Arie’sÂ I Am Not My Hair perfectly describe my feelings right now. Â Even though I am, in fact, not my hair I am interested in learning about how to better care for it. Â I’m also up for any discussion about how not to be defined by it.
On Sunday November 28, 2010 the Carson Community Center will host Â The 2nd Annual Wooli Me Expo/Conference. The Wooli Me expo is an informative and entertaining event that boldly welcomes women to join the Natural Hair Movement. Â Denise V. Estelle, founder and CEO of Wooli Me is on a mission to redefine beauty standards that have historically excluded women who choose to wear their hair naturally. Â The beautiful Ms. Estelle has worn her hair naturally for the past five years. Â She wants other women to embrace their hair as a gift from God and go natural as well.
Going natural is about freedom from chemicals, hot styling tools, and unreasonable expectations. Â Gaining freedom from those traps is a transition that requires guidance, especially for women concerned with maintaining the health of their natural hair. Â It is also important to consider the psychological impact of believing that natural hair is a curse rather than a crown and glory. Â The Wooli Me Expo is a one stop event for valuable information, enlightening discussion, and for natural hair care product shopping. Â Special guest speakers will include:
- Joanne Cornwell, originator of Sisterlocks
- Jan Robinson, Founder Black Women for Wellness
- Dr Rosie Milligan, Founder Black Writers on Tour
- Many more
The Wooli Me expo will also feature give aways, celebrities, spoken word, a fashion show and photo ops with the stars of the new web soap opera, AHSHE. Â The event will address the mind, body, and spirit and should not be missed. Â I know I’ll be in my car singing “I am not my hair” all the way there.
