Today's episode is all about hair! Women of color, particularly black women or those with textured hair, have a special relationship with our hair. We all have memories of sitting in someone's kitchen getting our hair pressed, relaxed, or braided. We have memories of loving our hair, hating our hair, and probably wishing to change our hair. Its such an important aspect of our lives and culture, so it's no surprise that hair care is something to be considered while on our sustainability journey.
In this episode I'm chatting with the founders of two small businesses that in my opinion, will shift how we look at sustainability in the hair industry.
First, we'll talk to Dominique about her low waste hair care brand, Consciously curly co. Then we sit down with Jannice Ne and Nana about how they are building the first plant based braiding hair company. Yes, you heard that right - plant based braiding hair!
I've been forgetting to remind all of the podcast listeners that I post video interviews on our YouTube channel. So if you want to see everyone's hair from this episode, click the link below to subscribe to Sustainable Brown Girl on YouTube.
