Brands Helping You Love Your Natural Hair
Written By Genavese Harris
For years, African Americans have struggled to find the right hair care products for their thick and kinky hair texture. There were limited products on the shelves, especially when it came to natural hair. Many products were being made for African Americans to straighten their hair instead of embracing their natural hair texture. But very few products were made that helped show black people how to love and treat their kinky-coily hair, especially for women. It is great to see more products that are being made specifically for natural hair.
Natural hair care products have definitely changed over the years. You are now seeing more and more black women and men embracing their kinky-coily hair texture, which is a beautiful thing to see. There are products made for all times of natural hair textures and many of the products are made by African Americans.
People with natural hair are discovering their curl patterns and using products specifically made for their hair type. There are so many products for natural hair, but I will give you some of the trailblazers in the natural hair industry.
Carol’s Daughter is one of the top leaders in the natural hair care industry. It was one of the first brands that came about at the beginning of the natural hair movement. The brand has products for different natural hair textures ranging from wavy to coily. It sold in major retail stores such as Target, Ulta, and Walmart.
Kinky Curly was founded by Shelley Davis in 2003. The hair care line was inspired to make family members homemade natural products. Kinky Curly has one of the best
detanglers called “Knot Today Leave-in Conditioner/Detangler.” It’s definitely a brand that is here to stay and constantly evolving with their products.
Camille Rose Naturals
The Camille Rose Naturals brand has a wide range of products. The products range from shampoos to styling products. Their products are great for hair with high porosity (meaning your hair has a hard time retaining moisture). Camille Rose Naturals can be found in retail stores such as Sally’s, Target, and Ulta.
Miss Jessie’s Miss Jessie’s was founded by two sisters, Miko and Titi Branch. The products started off in their salon and from there they took the products to stores. Their products are great for styling for all hair types. Miss Jessie’s products can be found on their website, Target, Walmart, and Sally’s Beauty Supply.
