Hailing from the picturesque Caribbean island of Jamaica, our founder's roots exposed her to the intrinsic value of herbal remedies, a practice deeply ingrained in her family and culture.
When our founder moved to the United States at age 12, her hair became dry and brittle due to the change in climate. Her tightly coiled curls began experiencing severe breakage and nothing she tried helped treated it, so she embarked on studying cosmetology in a dual enrollment program for 3 years in high school and soon after began formulating hair products in her own kitchen using herbal remedies from traditions passed down in her Jamaican family and culture. She continued formulating products and testing it on her hair for over 8 years, and her hair flourished beyond her expectations. One random day during the COVID-19 pandemic, she took a leap of faith and shared a DIY video of a formulation that retained moisture and preserved her hair’s length to help others experiencing the same issue, which miraculously reached an astonishing 2 million people and a following of over 40,000 people overnight. Thousands of people encouraged her to start a business, birthing The Pigmented.
