This show is the foundation of a movement that instills love of total self. It started out as a hair movement
that quickly morphed into a total body movement who’s message is, Healthy Hair, Healthy Body, Healthy Lifestyle.
Taliah Waajid created this show to spread the word about natural hair care, but found that women also needed and wanted information on becoming healthier. Millions of women all over the world struggle with managing their natural-textured hair, weight, health issues and self esteem, and are looking for answers and acceptance. That is why the health and wellness aspect of the show was added to the event. The WNHH&BS provides positive encouragement and is a place of freedom from negativity for those who choose to embrace their natural hair and natural self. It is a welcoming place where women become more empowered. They come to celebrate, network, enjoy and learn to be the best self they can be—totally.
