Our Focus

We focus on engaging, educating, and empowering black girls to make healthy and purposeful decisions regarding their hair & life journey.

Our Program Structure

Engage
HairOnPurpose brings together young girls to explore topics concerning their hair-journey, social idefinitions of beauty, health and well-beingand empowers them to take ownership of their own understanding of self-worth.
Explore
The "Explore" portion of our workshop is an interactive
hands-on lab, where participants get the opportunity to explore hair up close and learn about their own hair and scalp through hair typing, scalp and hair analysis which include, density, porosity, elasticity and more.
The goal of this lab is to provide an immersive learning experience while creating a fun environment for our participants
Educate
During this foundational portion of the workshop, we introduce the important aspects of hair care & parallel it with a social issue that impacts their age group and communities.Through this we are able to educate our girls on all things hair and challenge them to go against social constructs that can negatively impact them in the future.
Empower
Our most important task is to empower our girls to feel confident in their abilities to take of their hair and to be leaders in their communities. At the end of our workshops, participants have the chance to engage with our program far after the workshop ends.Such as our 10-Week Program Series, becoming a Teen Hair Champion in their community, contributing to the HOP blog and many more ways!
