There has been an up surge in Africans all over the world dishing relaxers and growing their natural hair and a decline in hair relaxer sales is proof that we have moved from the beauty that had been imposed to us by the fashion and beauty industry. Kipilipili Expo has turned a once negative word “kipilipili’ that used to describe ugly hair into East Africa’s biggest and beautiful natural hair and beauty expo celebrating all types of natural hair and skin.
Frustration on brought by lack of natural hair products and inaccessibility of those products led to friends Basia Wellu and Ziada starting Kipilipili Expo which has grown big since its inception in 2016. The third edition Kipilipili Expo will bring together naturalistas from all over Africa as they present to each other natural skin care products, natural hair products and share tips on how to manage their natural.
The Expo will include live demo shows from remarkable hairstylists, skin care specialist, hair shows, exhibitions and live music among others. Successful businesswoman Michelle Ntalami from Kenya will be the keynote speaker at the expo and her talk will focus on Entrepreneurship and brand building. The Expo will take place at Little Theatre in Dar Es Salaam on Saturday 3 November 2018 from morning til late.
