~~~~~~~~~~The Story of AfroShe®~~~~~~~~~~~
The story began with our founder and owner Ruth Wallis. Ruth writes… “When I had my first baby, my little girl, I discovered the challenge of maintaining her 3/4 Afro hair. Just like my own hair, which is 100% Afro, my little girl’s hair was always dry and brittle – and every attempt to detangle and brush her hair would always end in tears. I tried every product I could find in the shops. But nothing made any difference to the condition of our hair. So in April 2013 I decided that I would have to create something because nothing in the shops worked and everything that we tried from the shops made the conditions of our hair worse. So I set out to create a blend of natural and traditional ingredients that would hydrate, heal and condition my family’s hair, and enable it to grow without tangling or breaking.
Growing up in Ghana I remember using organic Shea Butter on my skin and hair as a small child! At the time I didn’t really know anything about Shea Butter’s AMAZING healing properties. It was only when I began to research for AfroShe® that I discovered why Shea Butter had become a staple ingredient in traditional methods of hair and skin care in Ghana. Found only in the tropics of Africa, Shea butter comes from the nuts of the Shea-Karite tree. (Shea-Karite translates as “Tree of Life”). Along with a special selection of 100% natural ingredients, AfroShe® uses organic, unrefined Shea butter, traditionally processed and hand-crafted by local women of Ghana, West Africa.
To create hair butters that are finely textured, and pleasant to the nose; that are able to travel and withstand different climates and changes in temperature; blends that are loved by skin and hair alike…took a lot of research and a lot of experiment! Today, we at AfroShe are thrilled by the transformation of my (Ruth) family’s hair and with the continual feedback we receive from people all around the world who write and send their pictures to tell us that AfroShe® products have healed and transformed the condition of their own skin and hair.”
