The Cape Town Natural Hair Fest, organised by the Cape Town Naturally Collective, was at the newly opened section of the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC 2) on Sunday December 16. The festival, attended by about 2 000 “naturalistas”, offered an array of products, advice on how to keep hair growing and healthy as well as live entertainment from the Black Ties and Claire Phillips. Cape Town Naturally is made up of local natural hair enthusiasts Eleanor Barkes, Amanda Cooke, Chantal De Kock, Simone Thomas and Kasuba Stuurman.
