Over the years, the natural hair movement has been reenergized, blossoming into not just a potent force for empowerment, but also a necessary one that has challenged societal norms and stereotypes. Transcending a mere phenomenon, the movement has been a vital catalyst for broader conversations on the importance of representation, redefining society’s understanding of beauty and creating a space for a limitless exploration of natural hair – an exploration intimately tied to self-expression ad identity. 

Although the decision to “go natural” is still a complex one, and indeed a personal one, there are an increasing number of Black-owned brands that are contributing to making the process a little bit easier, while keeping our tresses healthy and radiant. This month, Official Black Wall Street is highlighting some of these businesses catering to hair of every texture and curl, including some owned by your favorite Black celebrities!


With leave-in conditioners, styling creams, detangling nectars and more, including a blow dryer with 4 unique attachments, Pattern, by Tracee Ellis Ross, is determined to meet your hair where it is and empower each curl.
