Renee’s Corner: The Best of 2018

“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.” – Confucius 2018 has taught me that. As you all may know, I took over Uncle Funky’s Daughter back in 2014 after relocating to Houston and figuring out I have what it takes to run a successful, thoughtful company. One of my main goals was to launch these awesome products (which I had already been a fan of for years) on a national level because they deserved to be seen. In 2016, UFD launched in Target, and we remain on those shelves today in over Read More

Keeping it Cool and Under Control this Winter

Don’t you love the winter season? The holidays are the time when you can gather together with close friends and family! Can’t you feel the warm fire on those cool nights while sipping hot cocoa? I am now thinking of this year’s first snowfall; it’s so exciting and a beautiful sight to see when it arrives. Unfortunately, there is one downfall when it comes to the colder weather… DRY HAIR! The harsh and cold air can wreak havoc on our natural hair by drying it out, making it brittle and even causing breakage and split ends. It can also irritate Read More

Renee’s Corner: Thankful for the Funk

It’s cooling down, stores are selling pumpkin spice EVERYTHING, and we’re snacking on Halloween candy until we can’t anymore… These are signs it is definitely FALL. This also means 2018 is (unbelievably) about to come to a close. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside to think about all the success and growth Uncle Funky’s Daughter has had over the course of this year, but the thing I feel most is GRATITUDE!

Discovering the Magic in Curly Magic!

As a naturalista with (as Uncle Funky’s Daughter would say) “Well Put Together” curls, I’ve found it can be sort of difficult to find a curl definer that works for my type of hair. Women with looser curl patterns sometimes have an easier time finding a gel that defines their ringlets, and I want that same kind of definition for my curls! I’ve found that in UFD’s Curly Magic Curl Stimulator. Curly Magic has so many great qualities and ingredients! I love that it has a short, simple composition that WORKS. One of my favorite ingredients that I look for Read More

Underneath It All: Protecting Your Hair With Wigs

Protective styling is something many black women are familiar with. The aim of protective styling is to reduce the amount of manipulation done to our natural hair, be it through styling, coloring or heat application, that can cause damage. Protective styles also serve the purpose of allowing us to experiment with different hairstyles and looks. One minute, you could be rocking braids, the next week you could be rocking a sleek red bob, another minute you could be turning heads in a gorgeous afro curly wig; the space for creativity is as vast as you want it to be!
