Last weekend, I was graciously invited to attend the very first edition of Natural Hair Congress Canada (NHCC) in Montreal presented by Inhairitance Inc. and boyyyy was I glad to be there. This was quite the event and if you weren’t there, you definitely missed out so make sure to mark your calendar now for next year. There were some great speakers such as Audrey Davis-Savisothy, Nerissa Irving and Stacey McKenzie, for which I had the opportunity to interview (coming soon) and sooo many other wonderful people, talented artists, designers and entrepreneurs. Here’s a recap of NHCC.
