Today and tomorrow at the 5th Regiment Armory across the street from the State Center complex the Baltimore Natural Hair Care Expo will be taking place. This event is an annual 2-day family-friendly festival providing information about natural hair, and positive, holistic, healthy self-care in general, both inside and out. Created and presented by Malaika-Tamu Cooper of Dreadz and Headz Natural Hair Care Center, this hugely successful weekend expo encompasses the well over twenty years of experience Malaika has in styling natural hair, and in teaching others to do the same.
The event includes food and product vendors, classes and seminars on all types of subjects designed to encourage self-improvement, music, and live performances. This year’s special guest performers will be Kindred The Family Soul.
Kindred The Family Soul
Malaika has worked tirelessly to grow this event from a small Baltimore affair to a multi-city tour that travels throughout the country, taking the celebration of natural hair on the road and exposing it to thousands of people.
Tickets are available online at this link. Tickets are $15 in advance, and more at the door. There is a 2-day pass option available.
