#NNHB2016 speaker - Ijeoma Eboh

KlassyKinks.com founder and editor, Ijeoma Eboh, will be returning to The Nigerian Natural Hair + Beauty Show to talk about the do's and don'ts of colouring natural hair.

Ijeoma is on a mission to change perceptions of kinky textured hair around the world. Born in Nigeria but growing up in the United States, she remembers being coaxed to sit a little while longer while the relaxer “took” by repeating the mantra “beauty is pain.” After a 15-year relationship with relaxers, Ijeoma decided to grow out her thin, shoulder length wisps of hair simply to see what her God-given hair looked and felt like.

She started making YouTube videos shortly after her big chop as a way to chronicle her journey; little did she know that she would come to be a source of knowledge and inspiration for her family, peers, and other women around the world willing to embrace their kinks, naps, and afros. A graduate of Harvard University, Ijeoma is now pursuing a doctoral degree in History and Ethics of Public Health. She is based in New York.
