FEATURED GUEST SPEAKER:
Juanita N. Henderson is the owner and founder of Chocolate Kinks & Kurls hair and beauty products and also known as “The Kurl Koach.” She is a bold woman in the natural hair industry who is making a tremendous impact; not just in hair care, but in the connectivity of sistership and self-awareness amongst women and girls. Juanita has leveraged the beauty of her naturally coily and kinky hair to encourage self-love while embracing shrinkage in order to infuse a boost of confidence in others.
Juanita’s oldest heiress, She’Nayla, at age nine inquired about wanting her naturally coiled tresses to mirror those of her mother’s relaxed bone straight hair. That groundbreaking and intimate mother/daughter moment was the end of relaxed hair for Juanita as well as the conceptual catalyst of the brand we now know as Chocolate Kinks & Kurls. From independent retailer in 2012 to brand owner in 2016, Juanita strives to have the audacity to pursue her vision boldly.
Juanita, who resides in Indiana is a fearless innovator in the beauty industry stepped out on faith, bet on herself, and continues to inspire others to operate in unapologetic authenticity. She reminds young girls and women that it is not just about having the perfect twist out or mastering the perfect wash and go. For Juanita it is about being empowered and empowering others, practicing self-preservation, highlighting self-love, and executing in excellence with a spirit of gratitude.
