I have a few, Komaza, Kinky Curly, Butters-n-bars, and Darcys Botanicals. I personnaly have used kinky curly knot today leave-in this is a definite must have!...Butters-n-bars, excellent products and service, i purchased my henna, shea butter and the scented shea butters smell soooo good. Darcys Botanicals luv the products, the smell, and excellent service. And they all have affordable prices and are mostly if not all natural products.

Thank you for this list! I decided that I will make a better effort to buy black this year. I've purchased hair products from Qhemet Biologics, which worked fabulously for my hair.

I did some research and found Afrikan Republic and wanted to know if they were black owned. So many companies with "African" in their name and not owned by Africans or African Americans, so I wanted to double check. That's how I found your site! Thank you and keep doing what you're doing!

Translucent is a black owned company.

Dr Miracle is NOT black owned. Dr Miracle was started by a white man who is a serial entrepreneur. He beefed up the products with menthol to make the scalp tingle and make us think it's doing something spectacular. It's really ruining a lot of heads of hair...
