Becoming Bold, Brave & Curly

Caring for your natural hair is a personal project, and overall, a journey of growth in many aspects. We understand that word is bond and that we often gain our funky junkies’ trust for blog-worthy curls because they’ve heard about the curly magic we’ve got in store (pun intended)! We enjoy seeing the posts, tags and mentions — they’re the highlights of our days! So many kinky and curly girls out there are flaunting their hair without a care in the world, and are working every day to make our products more accessible to you all… So thank you! Every month, Read More

Big Decisions Blossom Beautiful Hair!

Sometimes, making the decision to go natural is more simple than most of us believe it to be. When it comes to how we look and how others may perceive us, we have a tendency to overthink our beauty. Funky Junkies, remember: keep it simple. Just as @AlongCameMyzha’s do, your curls will speak for themselves. “I’d say my natural hair journey is pretty simple,” Myzha says. “Not in a bad way, but as simple as: I made a decision, I cut my hair, and I felt free. I did my big chop at a time where natural hair was nowhere Read More

Defying Disability and Defining Dreams

“I grew up always wanting to model and act, but I was always told it wouldn’t be an avenue for me.” Women of color find that brands haven’t always taken the initiative to represent them and their dollar when it comes to marketing and promoting their products. It always seems to be more of a hassle, and now that we’ve become more visible in marketing and branding, the only place we can go from here is up. Our Funky Junky Feature for this month is one of those women. Tatiana is a gorgeous, thriving model and actress living the life Read More

When Life Gives You Flowers, Put Them In Your Hair!

Being a woman in this day and age requires a lot of internal strength. Women are required to know themselves, know the world and know that beauty is coveted but not required. Since Uncle Funky’s Daughter is part of the booming beauty industry, we often focus on the external entities of beauty, and work to empower women from the outside in. Embracing our natural hair is one of the things that help us exude confidence in who we really are. We’d say blogger, Kayla Janelle would agree. “What do I love about being a woman? Everything,” she said. “We are Read More

Thank God for Growth: Nicole’s Natural Hair Journey

When we look at throwback photos of us from high school, or they pull themselves to the top of our Facebook feeds (most times to our dismay), we often get a jolt of memories. Do you remember your first driver’s license photo? Did you have braces or acne or relaxed hair? Most importantly… have you transformed since then? We all take a look back at who we used to be, how we used to look, and are grateful for change. Our funky feature for this month, Nicole sure is, and she even uses that driver’s license photo as a benchmark Read More

Funky Junky Feature: Masterful Mimi

We think everyone has the ability to develop admiration for someone they see on social media. As interactive as social media is these days, its so easy! From time to time, we host campaigns to highlight a few of our favorite curly girls online who tag us in their awesome photos using UFD products. This month’s #FunkyFeature: Mesmerizing Mimi from Atlanta, Georgia! We first introduced the rest of our followers to Mimi during our Holiday Craft Your Curls campaign for which she styled her tresses with UFD products and produced this! Her photos were so stunning, we had to have Read More
