Supporting Black owned hair and beauty companies is something that is deeply important to me. 96% of the black beauty industry is completely dominated by people that are not of African descent. When I think about our many hair textures, types, spirals, coils, and curls I love to know that someone with that type of hair is behind the product. They use the product , know the issues, know the way we want and need our hair to feel. And in turn we feel great supporting our community in return for the love and care they put into the craft.
I first wrote this post back on July 21, 2010 which included a list from Lipstick Alley. I decided to give it a facelift because unfortunately many of the companies went out of business. I plan to keep this post updated at minimum once a year in hopes of ADDING companies and not deleting.
Let’s make this a community effort! If you know of a company or you are an owner of a black owned business in the hair, beauty, skin care industry please list it below in the comments to be added to the list.
Also please share this post on your social media outlets to support these business owners. It is something for everyone on this list!
