After a successful launch of their first expo in 2017, the Johannesburg Natural Hair Expo is back once again for an even bigger celebration.

The 2018 edition of the expo will happen on the 24th of September at Constitutional Hill and will host an array of local, African and international brands on the day.
This year’s Hair-itage theme plays an important role as the expo is on Heritage Day, a day in South Africans are encouraged to celebrate their cultural traditions in the wider context of the great diversity of cultures, beliefs, and traditions that make up the nation. The Johannesburg Natural Hair Expo encourages the attendants to represent their diversity on the day with their outfits.

New elements have been in addition to compliment the Hair-itage theme with entertainment including music, poetry, fashion and art, as well as food stalls throughout the day.
South Africa and the world is hungry for authentic dialogue on what it means to embrace yourself and this inspired the creation of the Johannesburg Natural Hair Expo. There is a growing need for true representation of African beauty. “We also believe in the women of South Africa and Africa… we are convinced they have a vital role to play in the economy of the continent. This is not just an expo but a platform to celebrate, re-educate and empower women and men on how phenomenal they are” adds says Creative Director Itumeleng.
