Felicia Leatherwood- The Empowerment of Natural Hair
All the way from Los Angeles, this world wide traveling Natural hair expert did a workshop on learning more about your hair, and feeling empowered to wear your natural hair. She stressed it is important to know your hair type, and the type of products that are tailored to your hair type. There is no room for laziness when it comes to taking care of your hair, and there is so much versatility and styles you can do with natural hair.

It was cool to meet Naptural85 in person, her personality is just as friendly and bubbly as she is in her videos. She started her blog and youtube site several years ago, for the mere pleasure of sharing her natural hair journey. Today she has over 500,000 followers on her Youtube channel, and is a true example of how doing what you love, can develop into many different exciting opportunities.

These graceful and beautiful sisters were one of the many highlights for participants of the NHA 2015. I didn’t have the chance to go to their workshop but I heard nothing but great things about them.
