Natural Stylist & Hair Braider

As a Natural Stylist & Hair Braider, I was fortunate enough to consult with some of the biggest beauty brands in the industry. But during this time, I realized there was a lack of representation for the natural hair and braid community. The products available were all designed for chemically treated hair causing breakage and scalp damage for those with natural hair.

Natural hair care products built

Specifically for curly textured hair!

Our team spent over 20 years sourcing oils and botanicals, experimenting with ingredients in our salon break room and at home. It was a long and challenging journey, but we finally found the solution. Our products are now beloved by clients who rave about the benefits they have seen for their hair and scalp. I believe that it is my purpose to share my experiences, both positive and negative, in order to positively impact the lives of others.
