With the lack of natural hair products for Afro and mixed heritage hair, Jim + Henry came on the scene with the vision to change the game.? Birmingham based, Jim + Henry have created two new natural hair products using only eight ingredients. Founder, Tammy Facey, lives and breathes her brand ethos: #Morethanenough
Jim + Henry launch Birmingham
Jim + Henry started off the month of June with a?bang, with the launch of their leave-in conditioner ‘Eight’ and their hair oil ‘Five’.? All were greeted on the day with a glass of white wine and a cupcake inside the Boston Tea Party in Harborne. It was a lovely family-friendly atmosphere, filled with laughter and high natural energy. Tammy quotes that she was only able to produce her natural hair products with the support of her family and friends. This support was evident at the familial gathering.
Purpose of Jim + Henry
In true fashion, I met Tammy embracing her natural curls.? Brimming with confidence, Tammy spoke of her personal struggle with conformity and self-acceptance.? She says “I had reached the point where I had stopped straightening my hair and decided to source the finest ingredients to hydrate my curls”. Through research, Tammy consequently discovered that dry hair was a common problem for women. Especially naturals amongst the black and minority ethnic community. It was once hard to find natural hair products and services aimed at young black women. By trial and error, Tammy was able to find ingredients both natural and moisturising for women who have afro and multi-textured hair.? She wanted to instil confidence in women, where we could glow in our natural beauty. With this, Jim + Henry was born.
Each ingredient is carefully handpicked to form two paraben-free products. Organic oils and natural ingredients, such as Ghanaian shea?butter, vitamin E and mandarin are the sole features. The idea behind these hair products is the result of ultra-soft hair, with brilliant shine and smoothness for women and children.? Furthermore, each product is vegan making this product ethically responsible. This is a win-win product for both the environment and people. Not to mention, a good addition to your hair care regime.
Calling All Curls event organiser, Grace Miranda, was also there on the day to support. Talking about all things hair and the growth of afro and multi-textured hair businesses in the UK. She also spoke of the importance of not being ashamed of our own culture in Britain.
