Guess what? I’ve started a new business! It’s a new natural hair care product called Fro Friendly and it came about while I was traveling in Cape Town, South Africa. A Fro Friendly gives you all the benefits of a satin scarf for your hair and adds a touch of beauty and luxury to your driving routine.
While in Cape Town I was driving with my friends and one of my girlfriends, Margaret, has a beautiful, HUGE curly afro. As she was driving, she had her head up against the head rest and her hair was getting smushed. We all started talking about her hair and how she needed some type of satin scarf to protect her hair while she was driving. My friend Lisa said, “You need something that is fro friendly.”
I looked at her and said, “THAT is a perfect name!” I asked if I could buy the URL because I knew I was going to create something but I had no idea what. She agreed, I went home and bought the URL and did nothing with it.
A few months ago I was trying to figure out how to generate some more income and I remembered www.frofriendly.com.
I called one of my friends who is an amazing seamstress, told her what I wanted and asked her to make a prototype. We tried a few things and came up with the finished product.
What is a Fro Friendly?
Fro Friendly is a natural hair care product that is made of satin. The satin covers your headrest and provides you with all of the benefits of a satin scarf or bonnet. It protects your hair while you’re traveling in your car or hopping in and out of taxis or shared ride vehicles.
Why do I need a Fro Friendly?
There are literally millions of women who go to sleep at night wearing a satin bonnet, a satin scarf, or a satin head wrap. This is because satin is softer on hair and help protect your hair from:
- having split ends.
- drying your hair out.
- having to be pulled back into a ponytail or tight bun which can cause headaches.
- becoming overly frizzy.
- breaking off.
These are just a few of the reasons why using some form of satin while sleeping is recommended for women with curly or natural hair. So if you take such precautions and use satin on your hair at night, why not take the same care while you’re driving? What happens to your hair when you get in your car, lean your head against your headrest, and start driving? Or when you hop into another form of transportation and you have to put your head on the headrest? Having to lean your head up agains a hard (and probably dirty) surface that isn’t covered in satin can be hard on your crown.
This is why you need a Fro Friendly.
