UFD Partners to Educate Teens on Hair Care Strategies

Every time we step out into the world and interact with the environment around us, we extend our personal reach. We come in contact with people — verbally, nonverbally, directly or indirectly — and have some impact on their day and lives moving forward, based purely on how we treat them in those few seconds or minutes. From smiles and greetings to small gestures of courtesy, our impressions on them have the potential to last much further beyond what we typically imagine. When you look at things from that perspective, it makes the importance of virtues like charity, kindness, and Read More

Fit Queen’s Natural Hair Journey

It’s flattering to get a compliment on occasion from friends, your significant other or even a stranger. But when your mom gives you a compliment, it has a different, more lasting effect. One of our most loyal Funky Junkies can attest to this truth. Five years ago, Funky Junky Kerri Swain, a Houstonian and naturalista, washed her hair after a workout. For convenience and ease, she decided to let her hair air dry – something she did seldomly. That same day, her mother visited her and to Kerri’s surprise, she immediately complimented Kerri on how beautiful her natural curls were. Kerri had been toying with Read More

Uncle Funky’s Daughter Reveals New Look

After nearly ten years in the hair care industry, the trailblazing Houston-based Uncle Funky’s Daughter has refreshed their brand with a new look. When the president, Renee Rhoten Morris, purchased the company last year, she wanted to reflect the company’s core values in its brand elements. As a naturalista for over 15 years, Morris explains her greatest challenge with transitioning was finding the right product and style that would help enhance the beauty of her natural hair. “As a woman, I feel it is important for us to be at peace with our natural beauty,” Morris said, “Which is why Read More
