As women and a growing number of men of color, what's your greatest skin care challenge? Whether it's dark spots, uneven skin tone, dark circles,puffiness under your eyes or hair that won't grow, you'll find a product that can possibly become the solution to your challenge.

We've got new additions to our store for you. Essential oils have been known to help calm and soothe skin and scalp irritations. Although you'll find a sample kit on the hair category page, you can use them for any of your skin and hair care needs.
The hair care sample kit has been given an upgrade. We've increased the size of the container on the shampoo and conditioners and added a hair butter sample to the mix.
Although there's beauty in your blackness, your skin is sensitive and needs protection from the sun just like everyone else. So if you know you're challenged by sunburn, add a few drops of Lavender essential oil to Jojoba and Grapeseed Oil and create a nice body oil for yourself. It will bring comfort and beauty back to your skin.
We're listening to you and your suggestions, so keep an eye on the category pages and your emails for updates.

Your kinks, your curls, your coils. Afro textured hair has never looked better. It's a play on words when we say afro textured. Or is it? When you say kinks, curls and coils, it's all about natural hair, natural black hair care… Afro Textured hair.
Your hair has a magnificent history. Long before the dawn of modern civilization, your ancestors placed a great deal of importance on their hair and how they wore it. It told stories about your culture.
Whether it's in cornrows, braids or buns, it's a beautiful head of hair.
And yes, natural hair can be worn in a chignon or placed in a bun on the top of your head,
The hair on your head serves as an antenna so to speak. It's a massive energy resource and when you think of the pyramids, there's a capstone that sits at the top. Your hair is the capstone of your body because it sits atop your head.
With its heavy source of melanin in its natural state, your hair has been said to be the antenna for Spiritual communication with the Creator.
When we talk about kinks, curls, and coiled hair as melanated people, we have all textures naturally on our head. The problem arises when we begin to think about altering what we came to the planet with.
When I say alter, for years, generations, centuries, we were taught that the hair atop our heads, in its natural state, was not hair to be desired.
As a people, we were made to feel that it was embarrassing to have kinky, coily, curly hair.
So we sought ways of straightening out this natural curl that sits on top of our head. We've put it through hot combs, it's been chemically straightened and we've even put it through blow dryers.
All of these methods have, in one way or another, at some point in time, damaged the hair. It also stunted hair growth and caused scalp damage to your head.
So as of this writing we're into the 21st century. One would think that we've arrived, so to speak, to a place in time where natural hair/afro textured hair would be acceptable.
Before the C.R.O.W.N Act of 2019 and the Global Pandemic in 2020, women going to and from work, especially in Corporate America, were still being told that their natural hair was not acceptable.
So black women were choosing to wear wigs to work in order to keep their jobs and pay the bills.
Others were choosing to wear what's referred to as protective styles. So you would have extensions incorporated into your hair in such a way that it conformed just enough to corporate rules. You could go to work in peace without being written up because your hair was not styled according to the rules.
When it comes to caring for that beautiful essence that sits atop your head naturally, there are certain steps that should be followed so that you don't damage your hair.
Your hair is fragile and cannot take a lot of pulling and tugging. Sometimes you can pull so hard that your edges will begin to bald. Or you can comb through it so hard that you will cause damage and breakage.
It's important to understand that your hair needs oil and moisture. So how do you care for your kinks, curls and coiled hair without damaging it?
Essential oils can offer great benefits to your hair. Just a few drops added to one of your bases can help your challenge tremendously.
You'll often find that they've been known to help prevent breakage, treat dandruff, help minimize dry scalps, help correct the balance of oily scalp, and literally improve the health of your scalp.
An Herbal rinse can help with scalp issues. So can diluted Apple Cider vinegar.
The key is in loving your natural hair with ingredients that will help it, not harm it. So, the next time you pass a mirror, tell your natural/Afro textured hair how beautiful it looks on you.
