Black women spend an estimated 7.5 billion dollars on hair care products in the U.S. I can’t even begin to imagine how much women in general spend on products–especially curly hair products.
As a curly haired woman with 3 curly haired children, it has been exciting to see that several black owned product lines exist specifically for curly kids.
The Mane Choice
The Mane Choice is one of my favorite product lines. I met the founder, Courtney at the Natural Hair Show in 2015. She is just as beautiful, knowledgeable & kind in person as she is online.
I love their products because despite the 3 curl types in my home, The Mane Choice works for each of my curly kids. It leaves my kids curls moisturized, shiny & soft to touch. My girls even ask for the Mane Choice by name. It doesn’t get better than that!
Shea Moisture has such a vast product line that is curated to solve a variety of curly hair problems.
Their curling gel souffle is a favorite of mine, but the kids line doesn’t work as well for my children.
Around since 2004, this brand was formed by two sisters, Miko & Titi Branch. The name from the brand came from their grandmother.
Miss Jessie’s is a more expensive brand, but I absolutely love their Multicultural Clear gel. It is light weight and provides the perfect amount of hold and curl definition for my curly kids.
Mahisha Dellinger launched her brand, Curls, in 2002. Frustrated with the lack of brands for natural curly hair, she singlehandedly built her empire.
This brand has a product line for curly kids & babies.
Eden Body Works
I was first introduced to this brand at a natural hair show. The facinating thing about Eden Body Works is that is was created by Jasmine Lawrence when she was only 13 years old.
As a mom of multiracial children, I love that this brand was created by Dr. Ena Hennegan, a mother, a board-certified, practicing family physician in suburban Chicago. As a multiracial woman herself, she knew the needs of other multiracial, curly haired individuals.
She has 3 daughters with 3 different textures of hair, so her line of children’s products aims at solving the unique challenges that come with having multi ethnic hair.
The best part about these products is that my husband loves them! He doesn’t complain about braiding the girls hair at night when he’s using the Many Ethnicities Kids Leave In Conditioner.
