Our Story


The Inspiration Behind Vanessa's Essence Natural Hair Care


Vanessa, a typical young girl residing in a Florida suburb, found herself among the many American youths subjected to bullying. However, alongside the torment came an unexpected silver lining: support and motivation from both acquaintances and strangers. This ordeal prompted Vanessa's mother to channel her inspiration into a positive endeavor for other girls. Moreover, a noticeable gap exists in the market for natural hair care products tailored to girls, specifically catering to the enhancement and fortification of naturally coily, curly, wavy, and kinky textured hair. This gave rise to the inception of Vanessa's Essence Natural Hair Care.

The primary objective of the company is to instill self-love and a genuine embrace of one's natural self in young girls. Simultaneously, the company aims to combat the issue of bullying by initiating dialogues that shed light on the severe consequences of such behavior. The company seeks to provide both encouragement and resources to bolster the confidence and self-esteem of young girls.
