Mega beauty brand Carol’s Daughter is launching a “healthy hair” tour of HBCUs will kick off at Lincoln University on Monday, April 8. Hosted by Myleik Teele, the founder of CurlBOX, there will be a panel discussion and a “pledge” where attendees can swap their relaxer for Carol’s Daughter Transitioning 1-2-3 Kit. The tour will also visit the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, Hampton University, Florida A&M University, and, ending on Friday, April 12, at Spelman College and Clark Atlanta University. Hair stylist Nikk Nelson and Ngozi from Heat Free Hair will be among the panelists.
According to the press release, the tour is focused on natural hair because black women have been increasingly focused on natural hair. “Despite the rapid decline of relaxer kit sales there is still no solution for women going through this incredibly stressful, frustrating and emotional time,” reads the press release. “Transitioning isn’t just a process of changing your hair, it’s a transformation that affects the way you see yourself and the way others see you.”
Details about the tour are available in the brochure below and on the Carol’s Daughter Facebook page. (Note, SixOne7Creative are the organizers for the event if you’d like to attend.)
