In August, the Black community celebrates Black Business Month, so this month we are going to highlight the many Black businesses in the world. It’s time that those in the Black-owned and business community get recognized. It’s time that they get just as much of an audience as those who are advertising their brands. Here are some Black-owned brands, products, and businesses that you now know of and can share with all of your friends and give them the recognition they deserve.
For this week’s Black-owned and business highlights, we will be highlighting hair products made for the black community and those who have made them like celebrities who have made hair products.
TPH is a hair care line made by actress Taraji P Henson known for her roles in Empire and Hidden Figures. Inspired by creating her own at home remedies for her hair and scalp, she has come out with a haircare line. Many products feature from hair milk to scalp scrubs, and these products are all new vegan, cruelty- and paraben-free, so trust that she has your back and is not putting anything in her line to harm you your hair.

Blackish star Tracee Ellis Ross has also come out with a haircare line. Ross has the most beautiful hair, and it’s so full and thick luxurious if you ask me. She has talked openly about her struggles growing up hating her hair or in being subjected to perms but says that she has grown to love her hair the way it is—knots, curls and all.
