Level Up Your Locks With These 4 Black-Owned Haircare Brands

Beauty & Fashion

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.

Pink Petal Organics

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.

Opulent Hair Essentials

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.

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."

How We Met is a series where xoNecole talks about love and relationships with real-life couples. We learn how they met, how like turned into love, and how they make their love work.

When it comes to sexuality, there have always been societal limitations centered on what is "acceptable." However, with more honest conversations about how fluid sexuality and sexual expression can be, now there are so many more opportunities for self-exploration and taking back ownership of our identities again. One couple that is living their truth and being sexual beings unapologetically while living and loving their lives are Jasmine Johnson and King Noire.
