Celebrating Curls and Culture: Latinx-Owned Beauty Brands to Support
It’s hard out here for a curl.
Everyday that you choose to wear out your curls, you’re also choosing to potentially take on various problems:
- The constant policing and politicalization of natural hair
- The pressure (literally, pressing) to polish your curls to fit in with Eurocentric beauty standards
- The lack of hair products that actually work with your natural hair and not against it
Sometimes it feels like there’s no amount of conditioner that can smooth over these particular tangles and tribulations...but this is where we step in!
Breaking Into the Beauty Industry as a Minority Brand
As a Black-owned hair care company, we know how important it is (and challenging) to claim space in the beauty industry.
The Latinx community has a hair history with struggles that are all-too-familiar for us.
Between changing the narrative around “pelo malo” (aka “bad hair”) and learning to relax on straightened styles, there’s a whole natural hair movement going on within this culture.
It’s not always peaches and curls when it comes to defying old beauty standards...we get it.
Real recognize real, and we really recognize (and like!) how the Latinx community is making their mark in the beauty industry.
As an ally and a helping curl, we’re highlighting a few of our favorite Latinx brands for Latinx Heritage Month:
Hair Products for Latinx Naturals: CurlMix
Haaaa..you’re probably thinking, “But CurlMix is Black-owned!”
You’re right, we’re definitely Black-owned, but guess what? Kim, our CEO and ultimate crowd-favorite, is Afro-Latina herself.
Intersectionality. It really is a circle of life, especially when it comes to your natural hair.
We support all curls of color over here.
