    Their products have recently been added to Target.

    The "about" section on the website is blank and I find that to be strange.

    Please let me know if you find out anything about the owners. Most independent companies have at least a start up story and photo.

    I'm not sure... is it possible for then to own it and Sundial distribute/manufacture it? I don't know how that works for hair products...

    Shea Moisture is a brand under the Sundial LLC. Sundial is owned by Sofi Tucker's decedents (therefore so is Shea Moisture)

    Does anyone know a black owned hair and beauty supply store in London, UK? I am having trouble finding one and I really do not want to give my money to anyone else.

    Another company that's black-owned and sells excellent products is Straight Request. They're based in Florida.
    I used it on my natural hair but know others who are relaxed who use it with wonderful results.

    http://www.straightrequestproducts.com

    Also, a black-owned beauty supply story is Powell Beauty Supply in Toledo, OH. The family has owned and operated it for more than 50 years.

    I order most of my Straight Request and other products from them.

    You can order online or visit the store.
    Powell Beauty Supply
    901 Nebraska Ave
    Toledo, OH 43607
    (419) 243-7731
    http://powellsbeauty.com

    Jordan's Beauty Supply in Chicago: http://jordansbeautysupply.com
    They have two locations.

    HairMary reviewed this line NaturallyVera, it's CurlyGirl friendly.
    No cones, sulfates, parabens, mineral oil, or petroleum.
    I've been wanting to try a Black-owned CG-friendly line before I go throwing down all kinds of money for DevaCurl.

    The line consists of 4 products:
    -a conditioning shampoo
    - a moisturizing conditioner
    -an aloe-vera leave-in
    -and a green tea deep conditioner.

    All items can be purchased separately but you can get the entire bundle for $65.
    I'll definitely be trying this one out.

    Girl, just go to any black-centric festival like an African, Caribbean, Ghana or the like festival and you will find plenty of people selling shea butter and black soap. It's pratically everywhere.
