Born This Way

When you are born you enter this world with supple, soft skin and the natural hair you are graced with. To celebrate this natural beauty, in this issue we chose to feature a handful of products that appreciate the splendor you were born with, and help you achieve that fresh, natural look time and time again.


Get in the Game

As House of Cheatham says, “Team Natural wants you!” Their Africa’s Best Textures brand provides maintenance and styling remedies to keep natural hair soft, manageable and fabulous. The Coconut & Sweet Almond Natural Growth Oil is vitamin-rich, and provides protective therapy that smoothes and seals rough, raised cuticles.



Travel Essentials

It’s that time of year where your customers are gearing up for Spring Break and trips to warmer climates. This is where Jane Carter Solution’s Natural & Curly Hair Essential Kit can come in handy! It contains what users need to transition from relaxed to natural hair, as each product is designed to hydrate and nourish tresses. Kit includes: Hydrating Invigorating Shampoo, Nutrient Replenishing Conditioner, Revitalizing Leave-In Conditioner, Wrap & Roll, Nourish & Shine and Curl Defining Cream.


Buttermilk Bliss

Namaste has discovered the Ethiopian secret for softer, healthy-looking hair—Ghee Butter. When combined with nourishing olive oil and hydrating coconut oil, like in their Buttermilk Styling Lotion, it provides the ultimate in hair nutrition. This product leaves behind a soft hold that won’t weight curls down.


It’s Magic!

Combining the natural protection and restoration powers of Aloe Vera and Rosemary extracts, Dominican Magic’s Revitalizing Hair Mask provides intense moisture and restoration to dried hair. Reviews prove that this product is a hit with users!


Celebrating Curls

Washing hair is essential, but when a product can clean while also moisturizing and softening dry, brittle hair and scalp, it’s even better! The Curly & Coily Coconut & Jamaican Black Castor Oil Co-Wash from Fantasia is made with Coconut Oil to increase strength and shine, and pure Jamaican Black Castor Oil, which stimulates scalp and encourages new hair growth.



Wondrous Waves

Your customers can define waves and curls without the crunch, while leaving behind a touchable, frizz-free finish thanks to Cantu’s Wave Whip Curling Mousse. Made with pure Shea Butter and formulated without harsh ingredients, this weightless moisture yielding item produces volume for days.



Nature’s Finest

What is more natural than 100% pure natural oil? Universal Beauty Products’ Via Natural Jojoba Oil functions very similar to human body oil—it is easily absorbed without clogging the pores and provides ample moisture to skin, scalp and hair. Its moisture provides all-day benefits.



Get Down to Business

At the end of a long, tiring day sometimes the best feeling is to wash away the dirt and impurities accumulated on the face while out and about, and get down to clean, shining skin. The Cream Cleanser & Makeup Remover from Palmer’s is a light foaming cream formula that helps customers accomplish just that. They can then sleep easy knowing their skin is pampered and well-moisturized.


Smooth as a Baby

When your customers hit the beach or pool this spring and summer, they want to know that the parts of their body they want hair-free are smooth and flawless. GiGi’s innovative Coconut Honee Flex Wax is a flexible hair removal wax that has the pliable application of a soft wax without the use of muslin strips, like a hard wax. Formulated with nourishing coconut oil and honey extract, it softens and protects the skin, leaving it is as hair-free and smooth as the day they were born.
