"It was a truly difficult year to say the least! Many of us lost businesses, lost family, and friends due to Covid-19 and many other stressful situations that came about because of this deadly infection. In my case I lost my “ROCK” my dad to cancer! Someone even told me to “get over it” but offered no solution. So, I found the answer during a visit home to Jamaica where I spent the
best 3 days since before the pandemic with 2 of my closest friends. There, in the tranquility and peace of the Island that is my home, and with all I had to accomplish to settle my father’s estate while there, we found time to
Release, Heal, and begin the process of Re-Creating.

As natural hair stylists our clients release to us daily. We know their every stress, loss, and every triumph. We did what we do best. We nurtured, we calmed, we poured our love/being into our client's hair and soul. But who nurtures us? Who calms us? Who will pour into our hair, our scalps, our souls?

This year 2022/23 Let Us, The Natural Hair Industry Convention Help You to Release, Heal and Re-Create in Montego Bay, Jamaica with the help of some of the most phenomenal healers, counselors, financial experts, and spiritually connected individuals.
This retreat is not about Social Media Popularity, but about “Real Life”, “Real Healing”, from “Real Individuals” doing the “Real Work”. It is designed for the Stylist, Educator, Student, Client, Product Developer, and any and everyone who has delt with real Stress during these Stressful and difficult times of recovery."

Words of Susan Peterkin, 2022

The NHIC’s aim is to provide natural hairstylists, naturalistas,

with like minded individuals connected by the natural hair community.
