Johnene Benson, CEO of The Kinky Texture Mixer shares how her vision for this event is to educate attendees about healthy products to use for their hair, with the goal of connecting natural hair industry leaders and their products to the Hampton Roads area. Her hope is to increase the visibility of NEW natural hair products, and to foster an environment where attendees can look forward to developing direct relationships with natural hair stylists, bloggers, small business owners and natural consumers in Hampton Roads.
The Kinky Texture Mixer was created in the Spring of 2014 by Benson, who is a motivational speaker, natural hair influencer & entrepreneur. She started her natural hair journey in January 2010. A bad reaction to a relaxer pulled all her hair out, which taught her a lesson of staying true to herself by embracing her natural hair. From that point on, she began to understand the necessity of educating natural consumers about natural hair care.
Through this event, 10% of the profit is donated to My Natural International, Incorporated. My Natural is a non-profit designed to empower college women to understand self- worth by treating the mind, body and soul, while encouraging healthy hair growth with natural products and techniques.
It produces events in Hampton Roads and is headquartered in Hampton, Virginia.
