Elevate and chill is the wave, and every week, xoNecole is highlighting four black woman-owned brands you should support and follow. Join us on August 3 to support businesses like these in real life at our first annual ElevateHER event.
We're only weeks away from our first ever ElevateHER Crawl and at this point, it's safe to confirm: it's lit.
We still have some time to kill before we gather in the name of black women in business and live our absolute best lives, but until then, xoNecole has a list of black-owned haircare brands that will get your curls all the way together before August 3rd.
We can all admit that it would be a lot easier to buy black if these brands were more visible, so in an attempt to remedy this dilemma, peep this list of high-quality hair products that were created for black women, by black women:
Ronnie + Rose, Inc
Ronnie + Rose is the all-natural, ethically sourced haircare line you didn't know you needed. This luxury beauty brand boasts itself on its non-toxic products made from ingredients like ginger, red algae, and aloe vera that are sourced from all around the world. Products like their Green Tea Detox Shampoo and Conditioner not only treat common issues like hair loss and dandruff, but promote healthy hair growth from the inside-out by boosting your immune system and increasing blood flow to your scalp.
Created by Kennesaw State Business Marketing student, Nicolette Rumph, this company's mission is to encourage coily-haired women to reject societal norms and learn to love and embrace their natural hair textures. When Nicollette made the big transition from relaxed to natural in 2014, she struggled to find a product that was suitable for her 4C kinks. Upon realizing that there were no truly safe options that lacked toxins and harmful chemicals, she decided to create one. Pink Petal Organics now offers a collection of products that features an apricot and almond infused hair oil and a flaxseed curling custard.
Koils by Nature
Atlanta-based business owner and U.S. Army veteran Pamela J. Booker created her plant-based, vegan-friendly haircare line in 2009, and ten years later, Koils By Nature is still going strong. Handmade with fine essential oils, the company offers both haircare and grooming products for both men and women.
When a woman changes her hair, she's about to change her life, and Opulent Hair Essentials is here to help you meet your transformation goals. Created after years of research, this company's goal is to help you level up your moisture and protein game in a major way. The Opulent Hair Essentials line is separated into three categories: maintenance and styling, moisture, and robustness, to help you find the perfect product to remedy your haircare woes.
