Hair My Story began with a desire to create a line of haircare products that would be gentle on textured hair, made with natural ingredients and free from harmful chemicals. We wanted to offer an alternative for people who were searching for a more sustainable way to take care of their appearance. We handcraft each of our products using potent herbs and plant actives, carefully selected for their peak and lasting benefits.
We envision a world where everyone has access to effective, life-changing beauty products without having to compromise the integrity of both their health and the earth. We are committed to proving that hair thrives when treated with nature's ingredients.
Everyone has a story, a unique one at that! Our stories may be similar, but there is always something different. Here is why. We have different backgrounds, experiences, and exposures. It is a delight to have you in this space! And this is all about you! Your hair story needs a leap in the right direction.
I am Isatou from the Gambia in West Africa. My culture celebrates and adorns hair. I learnt this while growing up! So, I had no choice but to pay attention to this. It was nice to see women carry their hair in beautiful styles. Sometimes the styles and treatments were harmful to the hair. I was not exempted from this. I had my share of bad hair experiences. It was a lot to handle!
When I was a hair novice I didn’t know how to care for my hair. I was always applying products with harmful chemicals without any real knowledge of what this meant. Non-protective styles and frequent heat treatments were my forte. Within a short period, I reaped the results. No way! I began to lose my hair. Combing it was a nightmare and the broken strands kept increasing. I was not proud of my hair.
I knew that if I wanted a different experience I would have to be deliberate about it. This was the primary decision that changed my story. I made up my mind to go back to where it started from; my roots! I started loving and accepting my hair. Next, I decided to go from broken and weak hair stands to strong healthy hair.
Here I was, braced up and ready to start a new journey. I began to study and research ingredients and processes on natural hair care. Soon enough, I understood how delicate every hair strand was. I learned how to care for and grow my hair using herbs and natural oils in their purest forms. In no time I began experiencing the joys of healthy free hair. It felt amazing !
My passion for healthy hair made me tell my story to any and everyone. I took note of all the details and progress I made. Before long, I found a group of women who have gone through similar struggles. And we began to tell our stories. I am glad to say that it has been years of intense research, relearning, and results. High-performing hair products and that yield results is now at grabs.
It doesn’t matter where you are in your hair journey. There is always room for improvement. Do not give up on your hair! With us, you have a different story. One that starts with cultivating a community that empowers women and allows us to show up as we are.
