Company Summary

73% of African American women suffer from relaxer induced alopecia, a hair loss disorder caused by products with harsh chemicals to straighten hair. To fundamentally change this, Going-Natural.com does more than offering natural solutions for healthier hair care. The social company also uses new technology to improve the perception of African hair; a fairly unknown and often stereotyped hair type.
