Top 54 Black-Owned Hair Care Brands for Curly Hair Care

Learn about over 54 black-owned businesses in hair care you can start to support today in this carefully curated list.

There are a few favorite black-owned haircare brands that work excellently for curly hair but sometimes, they change ownership and/or formulas.

At other times, a product is discontinued, leaving you and your curls out in the cold and on the search for a suitable replacement.

This list is going to combine the top 54 plus black-owned haircare brands for curly hair into one place so you can experiment, research, and always have something new to try out.

Some of the brands on this list are also my favorites and have been mentioned a few times on the website.

The list continues to expand as more black-owned businesses are opened every day so be sure to let me know in the comment section if I missed anyone.

Top 55 Plus Black Owned Hair Care Brands for Curly Hair

I will be updating the list as time goes on so while the heading says top 54, you may find way much more than that below.

You may see strikethroughs on some names. That usually means the page locations have changed. I will update the list as I catch them.

If any brand is no longer black-owned, I will mention this specifically next to the name.

I found the sunny isle shampoo and conditioner at about £8-£9 that's still affordable. Just need to find some hair masque and good leave-ins. Should be fun working my way through until I find something that works for my hair.

Enjoy! :)

Thank you for this list. Trying to support more black owned hair care companies. I'm based in the UK, and I'm finding a lot of the products is not what I'll personally say is within the affordable price mark. I'm used to paying around £3.50-£6 for a shampoo, but the starting price of some these have me searching high and low everywhere for deals. I'll keep working through your list. Thanks again.


Saturday 6th of June 2020

I guess because of the nature of the ingredients used combined with being a small business explains the high price mark. You should still be able to find shampoos in your price range though and a lot of them do have sales frequently. You can also check this list here for even more black-owned businesses -

Unfortunately, The Mane Choice was acquired recently to a non-black company. I'm saddened by this since I loved the products. From a business standpoint, I understand why they do what they do, but in regard to standards of quality of actual care of black hair, I worry. Other groups have a not so good habit of not caring about the results of cutting costs and putting the financial bottom line over the customer's I don't know.

MoKnowsHair just came out with hair products and they black owned I believe. Also saw some good reviews Also Pattern Beauty is black owned

Thank you for this updated list. I was using As I Am, but recently found out they was no longer black owned when I saw the models getting lighter with different hair texture.
