Trenton Goes Au-Naturel
Members of Loc Majesty Natural Haircare and Wellness Salon want to put an end to that trend so they decided to host the city's first ever all-natural hair and fashion show this Saturday, April 7th at the Lighthouse Outreach Ministry from 3 pm to 9 pm.
Members of Loc Majesty Natural Haircare and Wellness Salon are locticians that specialize in natural hair care. They recommend that people let go of the lye and go au-naturel.
One of the events coordinators, Nichole Towns, says that this event is long over due. Her comments come at a time when many members of Black America seem to be using chemical relaxers to straighten their hair. Yet at the same time, we're also witnessing the growth of natural hair care treatments.
Indeed, the debate between going natural or using chemical relaxers has even spawned the creation of a documentary film named Good Hair featuring well-known comedian Chris Rock.
So, it is no surprise that Trenton is hosting its first ever all natural hair and fashion show this upcoming Saturday.This event is open to the community at large, all are welcome.
General admission is $10, for seniors the price is $5 and for children under 12, there is no fee. Vendors from near and far selling are scheduled to attend. Individuals at the event are invited to purchase clothing, jewelry, foot jewelry,skin/hair products, oils, massages, pedicures, books, and much more.
During the event, community information and literature will also be available. There will be food vending provided by local hot spot Cafe International. Music will be provided by DJ Smoov. Popular poet Narubi Selah will be hosting.
