It is our mission to provide black haircare products at an affordable price. We strive to make buying your hair products online easy as we, as two black women, know this isn't always straight forward. We understand the struggle from long searches to source black haircare products online to then being overcharged, paying ridiculous shipping or buying from people who don't have your best interests at heart. This is why our site and customer service are of utmost importance to us.
Our customer service comes in the form of the contact us form and other methods such as by email or through social media. Feel free to get in touch!
We also have a chat box in the bottom right corner. But please note this site is ran by a small number of people and therefore we can only promise to get back to you as soon as possible.
