Houston, Tx– The “Fall In Love with Your Hair” tour made its second stop in Houston for an intimate night of natural hair experience on Thursday, October 23 at the Domain at Kirby.

Over the years, going natural has become a craze in the African-American community. Many people are deciding to go back to their natural roots and not chemically process their hair.

The tour, which was  sponsored by natural hair care line “Beautiful Textures” made a stop in Houston to inspire and inform natural hair care lovers in the city. Women and men from all over the city of Houston came with friends to become more informative about their natural hair.

“It was definitely an informative experience for natural hair lovers; I came here with my mom to get a more insight on our hair” said Jazmyne Williams, who’s been natural for 5 years and was looking for different ways to maintain her hair.

The event gave attendees the opportunity to ask the questions concerning their hair through a series of panels and discussions. The panels included: OWN TV’s “Houston Beauty” star, Queenseley Felix, Charlene Dance and Camille Davis of “Strength of Nature” and more.

“The panelists made sure that no question was left unanswered; they gave personal experiences about styling and maintaining their hair” stated Williams.

The panelist gave advice on how to properly treat their chemically unprocessed hair along with several styling stations. The stations gave the women ways to properly maintain their hair, as well as ways to style it.

The panel encouraged women on ways to deal with the negative backlash about going natural.

“You have to own your natural hair; embrace it despite what people think” said “Houston Beauty” star Queenseley Felix.

Felix gave the women several ways to respond to the negativity of making the decision to go natural both professionally and socially.  The attendees gave experiences on the struggles of choosing to go natural and negative responses from others.

” It was a difficult transition, being that I was used to having relaxed hair. The transition has become easier.” said Velyjha Southern.

The mission of the event was to inspire other natural hair lovers to learn to own and accept their hair.

“This event was necessary and a success because their are very few events geared toward natural hair people in the city” said Southern.

The tour wrapped up in Houston and made their way to New Orleans for their next stop. Planners of the tour hope to have another tour in the Spring of next year.
