In no particular order, here is a list of my favorite Black owned hair companies. I wanted to compile a list of brands that I have had experience with (I actually use products from each of the brands mentioned) but I would love to know what other brands are worthy of being added. Please comment below with your favorites, as I’d love share and learn. I’m also on the hunt for affordable Black owned makeup brands. I will be updating this post– adding information and links– so be sure to bookmark and share this post for reference!
Camille Rose Naturals– This is a given. If you know me, you know my love for Camille Rose Naturals runs deep. I can’t pinpoint one particular product that I love the most because they really have so much quality in their catalog. From my staple, Almond Jai Twisting Butter to Curl Maker and every delicious butter, hair milk, and cleansing rinse in between- I love their products. I love supporting this company because they really are a great all around brand.
Curl Junkie– Some of my favorite products (and some of the first products I’ve used since going natural) are from Curl Junkie. The Curl Rehab deep conditioner from this brand is my staple moisturizing treatment, and it isn’t going anywhere any time soon. I was surprised to learn that Curl Junkie is Black owned, but super excited because I’ve already been supporting them for so long. Their products are legitamately wonderful and if you haven’t already, I definitely recommend trying them.
Mielle Organics– I am currently having a love affair with their Avocado hair milk. If you haven’t checked out my early reviews of Mielle Organics (the hair milk and a protein deep conditioner), please head over. They just released a kids line of products that I’m
stalking interested in trying, and I encourage you to try a few as well. The incentive is that their products– just as Camille Rose Naturals– are all natural!
Eden Bodyworks- I LOVE their Coco Shea Berry Curly Creme from their kids line! (I rave more about it in my healthy hair care for kids video.) I have a few of their products in my stash that I’ve been rotating in J’s wash regimen and I’ve liked everything we’ve tried so far. (Their Jojoba All Natural Deep Conditioner— a best seller– is on my wish list.) Best of all, they too boast natural ingredients. They smell delicious, they are affordable and easily accessible, and I love their backstory!
Kinky Curly– Knot Today. Come Clean. Kinky Curly Curling Custard. Lord, I love Kinky Curly Products. I can’t even begin to describe how great this brand is. And they are also easily accesible. Get you some!
As I Am – I’ve only tried ONE product from this brand, and I’m confident in saying that it is one of my favorite brands. This is a big deal for me. I love that the As I Am products are easily accesible, which makes it that much easier to make the transition in replacing products that you may grab from the drugstore. This brand too, boasts all natural ingredients.
Shea Moisture– Do I even need to explain why this brand made the list? Aside from the wonderful products that they produce, I love what Shea Moisture does for the community. I love the message they endorse, and I love what they represent. Have you heard of their “Break the walls” campaign yet? It is so inspiring, and it’s about damn time. I love them for this. I’ve been known to say that my hair has a “love-hate” relationship with their products, but I actually love them for my daughter’s hair. We all (everyone in my house) lives for the Manuka Honey Masque, and I don’t know what I would do without it!
