Calling all naturalistas—this crop of natural hair brands needs to be on your radar if it isn’t already. We’re calling it now, these are the brands that will change your hair world. Aside from working wonders on strands and bringing out a curl pattern like nobody’s biz, they’re formulated from ingredients that are as gentle as they would otherwise be edible. This is haircare at its purest – bring on the all-natural, damage-free love!
Unwash is an alternative to harsh shampoos, which are formulated to remove heavy product build-up (think hairspray in the ‘80s). To remedy this and provide a gentler clean, Unwash relies on “cationic cleansers,” which remove dirt from the cuticle in the same way a magnet would. The result is healthier hair that’s safe for all, but especially formulated for ladies with curls and natural texture.
Founded after a series of haircatastrophes left Yve-Car searching for her mother’s Haitian Black Castor Oil—and the awful moment when she couldn’t find it in any store, was the moment Kreyol Essence was born. The products come directly from Haiti and give back to the local community.
Created specifically for natural hair and natural hair in transition, the brand stresses moisture above all else. With a focus on encouraging growth, all products are cruelty-free and made without any parabens, phthalates, sulfates, mineral oil and petro chemicals. All products are made in the USA and ship from NY.
The idea for haircare brand, HAIRette, came to actor and brand founder Tania in the form of a person. This person, Hairiette, was the incarnation of Tania’a very volatile, personal relationship to her locks. “I wanted products that were healthy and that would allow me to go from curly to straight, keeping my tresses moisturized and protected from the bright lights of Hollywood (so much like the rays of the sun) and protect them from other elements, like humidity and the cold,” she has explained about the brand. Hairiette relies on a hero co-wash product to get take your hair from average to starlet.
Pronounced OU-JU-WEE, the haircare line delivers a full range of moisture-rich options to salvage even the driest textured strands. When hair is properly moisturized it cuts your detangling time – choose from almond coconut, pear butter, marula and aloe lines to get your strands in shape.
Krika Bradsher, CEO, Owner and Operator of Sophia Sunflower Salon, created the My Honey Child product line after being called a “natural hair wizard” by her clients. To get the salon experience anywhere in the world, sample Krika’s home grown line, which relies on a host of super ingredients, from peppermint and burdock root to honey bee and sage
Customization is key for Aunt Jackie’s. Whether your hair is curly/bushy, wavy or kinky/coily hair (and even a line for kids) the products (made with all natural ingredients) enhance what you were born with.
Operating under the philosophy “hair care is personal,” much blogged about Form Beauty allows you to fill out a customization order, which will generate your exact product prescription—look no further for your 100% hair match.
Made with formula transparency and all organic-agriculture ingredients, the gentle line, which ranges from lavender, apple cider vinegar, lemon and tea tree—it’s the all over sensory experience you need from your shower.
Renpure is plant-based beauty, free from “sulfates, parabens, dyes, gluten, phthalates, propylene glycol and bad vibes.” Aside from being made from the best stuff, Renpure is committed to giving back, and has partnered with the Salvation Army to provide personal care items to the homeless.
