What I want my product to do is make our people feel and look great. A lot of times we are demised as a culture because of the type of hair we have. My product is unisex for both males and females to exude their royalty from the crown that grows from their heads! Also, at a reasonable price. This goes hand in hand with ‘What The Music Media’. As we spread awareness on black growth; especially economically, I want our ppl to see more that the good side but the hard work as well.
