The low down on afro hair subscription boxes
Many agree that this is the best time to be a black woman. The best time to be a natural haired black woman at that. Ten years ago, afro hair subscription boxes were unheard of. We struggled to find hair care products made with natural and organic products for our curly locks in the usual black hair shops. Let alone to walk into a mainstream supermarket or pharmacy to find ‘our’ products. Subscription boxes are indeed a Godsend. They allow the subscriber to get a variety of afro hair samples delivered straight to their door. These Afro Hair Subscription Boxes are at a reasonable price with different products being sent on usually a quarterly or monthly basis.
Here are the best UK black owned afro hair subscription boxes on the market.

This brand was born in 2016. Finding no products on the market to properly care for her dry, sensitive skin and coily hair, the founder, Kadian Pow created Bourn Beautiful Naturals. Exclusive to Hair Popp, providing 4 items in their hair care line, the Bourn Beautiful Hair Kit includes 250ml full sizes:

ODYSSEY BOX UK
Founded by natural hair blogger CurlyGalChlo. Natural hair care doesn’t have to be Saturdays in the hair shop trying to find something to beat the dryness, or something that will bring your edges back. Natural hair care doesn’t have to be oil number three that will hopefully soothe that irritated scalp and mend those split ends this time (because it won’t).
Natural hair care can be luxurious. It can be a pamper session at the weekend and healthy hair growth. And that’s where ODYSSEY BOX comes in.
Chloé Elliott, the founder is passionate about natural hair. She says, “it is my identity, my personality, my power and now more than ever, it is my business. It is my business to save you the search and minimise the trials and errors by bringing you high quality, luxury experiences wherever you call home or wherever you do your hair. Your hair is my driver and my mission too because natural hair is a personal journey and we’re on the same one. Let’s make this journey an adventure“.
Each ODYSSEY BOX is made available every other month. Subscribe to receive 4-5 products every other month from black-owned hair brands.
