I'm Nadja Renise and I started my hair journey after my hair fell out 3 different times 😫 from:
- A sew-in that took my edges (traction alopecia)
- Postpartum hair shedding that lead to a big chop
- Stress from a bad relationship
The first time my hair fell out was a result of my first sew-in and the last relaxer I ever got. I lost my edges from having my hair pulled too tight (aka traction alopecia). I was in tears! I felt shocked, embarrassed, and pissed AF! It was so bad a woman, who was also a regular at the same salon, even made a song about my hair loss (ask me about it one day and I'll sing it for you - yes I still remember it). The good news is I was able to regrow my hair using a natural hair growth oil I created in my kitchen. 👩🏾🍳 I applied it day and night and slowly but surely my hair grew back longer and stronger than ever! That oil is now the Flower Bomb Rapid Rejuvenation Oil. 🌺
After baby #2 🤰🏾 I had LOTS of postpartum shedding. 💇🏾♀️ As a busy mom and lazy natural I didn't have time for myself let alone my hair. I didn’t feel pretty, I was tired and unhappy. After watching days of youtube and trying numerous styles that all ended up failing got desperate. So after dropping off my kids at school/daycare I went to a salon and big chopped my shoulder length hair. When bae got home with the kids I surprised them all with my new look. They were shocked to say the least.
The last time I lost my hair was after an unhealthy relationship that ran its course. The stress from being in a toxic environment took it's took on my mental health and my hair. I found myself in a downward spiral of depression, anxiety, weight gain and my hair was falling out again. I felt so unsexy my confidence hit rock bottom. 💔
In my kitchen I began making products using natural ingredients. I used the products to quickly regrow my natural hair and bring sexy back. I shared the products with my girlfriends and they loved them so much I knew I had to share them with the world and help other women transform their hair. 🙌🏾 💗
These products have grown my hair, boosted my confidence, grown my daughters 4C kinky coils to super thick waist length hair and helped thousands of women grow their hair.
Celebrity actress and producer, Issa Rae even named us her #2 Black Owned Business to shop with!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I believe natural hair is SEXY AF! I created FEMME NOIRE so black women can feel confident growing and flaunting their curly hair. I named the company FEMME NOIRE because it means Black Woman in French. My products honor our HAIRitage without compromising our health. I hand select plant based ingredients 🌱 that don’t damage our bodies because too many products made for us are linked to cancer. FEMME NOIRE products are natural, cruelty free, vegan, PETA certified and free from sulfates, parabens, mineral oil, paraffin (petroleum) silicones, DEA, glutens, and phthalates.🙅🏾♀️
It’s my goal to help women look and feel confident & sexy, from the boardroom👩🏾💼 to the bedroom. 🛌🏾 Unlike other uninspiring yet healthy beauty products we are different. Simple and effective vegan beauty products, for textured hair kissed by luxury. 💋 Seriously, can it get any better?
I invite you to put our products to the test and if you aren't satisfied you can return it for a full refund, no questions asked. 💯
I pay it forward by reserving a portion of our profits to donate to women’s empowerment charities. We also donate clothes, blankets, and beauty products 🧺 to local women’s shelters, organizations and sponsor women so they can provide for their families. Some organizations we support include Women For Women and Equality Now. 💰💰
Together we can make a positive impact in the lives of others and giving back to women in need. 🙋🏾♀️ 🙋🏾🙋🏿♀️ 🙋🏿
