Founded in 2013 by Mary-Andree Ardouin-Guerrier, during her transition to a more holistic and healthier lifestyle. The journey began once her son had been diagnosed with a multitude of food allergies, she had just lost one of her close aunts to an aggressive form of ovarian cancer, and at the time her maternal grandmother was battling countless chronic health diseases. After relinquishing her use of toxic chemical hair straighteners, she chopped off all her hair to grow it out and embrace her natural hair texture. She started researching holistic ingredients that were used across the globe for hair growth and healthy hair management. She also wanted to incorporate spices because of what she learned about them through her West Indian heritage. After coming up with the right unique blend, the hair oil was born. Around the same time, she got accepted a graduate program at Columbia University in health education. Now as she nears the final stages of her dissertation, she has decided to revive the oil to be better than it has ever been. Giving birth to our Revitalizing Organic Hair Oil. Shop HERE

Uniqurl was developed by Registered Nurse, Alexis Stanley who suffered from a hair journey set back in 2016 that left her Mid-back length hair damaged and breaking. While using products that weren't giving her hair what it needed in this newly fragile state, she decided to start making products in her kitchen. Alexis was no stranger to the healthy hair care world as her journey began on the online forums in 2005 before the natural hair movement started! There she took pride in helping women achieve their hair goals without asking for anything in return! By 2017 she had begun experimenting with hundreds of ingredients that provide key things that her type 4 hair needed at that time. It wasn't long before Alexis started using her products on her two daughters and began sharing her recipes with her followers on Instagram while giving them free healthy hair advice! Her followers wanted more of what she was offering so Alexis decided to package her formula and put a label on it! Uniqurl was birthed out of self-less love and a desire to genuinely help others. Our formulas are clean and free of harmful ingredients. We have sourced the best ingredients for naturally kinky hair and will continue to provide our customers with only the best! Shop HERE

COCO' PIE CLOTHINGS & ACCESSORIES
Founded in 2011 by our amazing CEO, Shantae Pelt, Coco’Pie came to life after one of her daughters saw a t-shirt with a little black girl on it. She excitedly exclaimed, “Look, mommy! It’s ME on that shirt!” Shantae bought the shirt and her daughter literally wore it out! She beamed every time she wore it and this helped Ms. Pelt realize how much images of brown girls were missing in mainstream apparel and were obviously needed in a major way! Inspired by her two girls, Mikayla and Kennedy, whom she lovingly calls her “coco pies,” Shantae decided to create her own line of shirts that her daughters could wear with pride as often as they wanted to. Without a clue how to start a t-shirt line, she began doing research and soon found a mentor to walk her through the process. Coco’Pie Clothing became a new passion and after the first set of 12 shirts sold out, she knew this was a dream worth pursuing. Shop their Backpack on Amazon.

GABBY BOWS- Double Snap Barrettes
Rozalynn and Gabrielle Goodwin of GaBBYBows, created the first of its kind, double-faced, double snap barrette hair accessory! According to Rozalynn, this all began with a simple Twitter rant, her pastor’s gentle nudging and a “broken record in pigtails” that kept losing her bows during recess. “I literally prayed, Ok, God. If there is something here, you are going to have to show it to me,” said Rozalynn.“Inventing the Double-Face Double-Snap Barrette was not what I had in mind when I logged on to Twitter that day to blow off some steam”, she said. At the time, Gabby was only five years old and as parents can easily relate to, was persistent in asking, over and over again, when she’d be able to get her new bows. Bows that stayed in her hair and ones she didn’t lose. Purchase these bows for that special Princess in your world here.
