Next up in our Black History Month series is a post on the some amazing Afro/Kinky haircare brands. Read on for a list of some of the best black-owned textured hair brands. These brands know how to deliver the best products because they were created by people who not only understand the struggles of caring for Black hair, but also know how beautiful it is. Your hair will thank us for it.
If you've ever dreamed of hair extension designed specifically for black hair that aren't the standard straight or body-wave texture but instead come in texture specifically made to match the natural textures of black hair, get ready to make those dreams a reality thanks to KinkyCurlyYaki.
Before KinkyCurlyYaki, there were next to no brands offering high-quality hair extensions in textures that blended seamlessly with natural hair. Its founder, Vivian Kaye wanted to address those needs to allow Black women to show off their natural hair textures while still being able to experiment with length, colour and style through protective styling like wigs.

Kurly Klips is the OG when it comes to clip-in hair extensions in natural Afro textures. Named by Essence as Best in Black Beauty, Kurly Klips' selection of Afro-puffs, ponytails and standard clip-in wefts are a quick, hassle free way to update your style without having to repeatedly straighten and risk damaging your beautiful kinks, coils or curls.
Whether you're in-between wash days and need a quick-fix or want to try something new, we highly recommend checking out this incredible brand. We're also completely in love with their Detangling Caddy. This clever gadget is used to keep your wefts neatly clipped on to allow you to brush, detangle and even style it ready for wear. Perfect.

To All My Black Girls
Founded by Anu Obe who wanted to build "a company which stood entirely for black women, and in which black women would be completely adored and accepted for who they are" UK-based brand To All My Black Girls has done just that.
From textured hair extensions to head wraps, face masks and accessories, To All My Black Girls is the perfect place for some incredible products. We especially love their range of wig hats–hats with hair attached to them that make them perfect for throwing on when you don't have time for your full hair routine.
