5 Latinx-Owned Hair Care Brands to Support During Small Business Saturday
Proper hair care can make or break your look.
Why not try something new this holiday season from a Latinx-owned small business?
With Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday coming up, we've compiled a list of Chica-approved hair care brands founded by Latinos that we know you'll love.
Fabian Lliguin may have established himself as a celebrity hairdresser on Fifth Avenue, but his love for hair care goes back to his upbringing in Ecuador.
On a trip to the Amazon, he discovered the native women's secret to long, glossy hair was rahua oil. He began to incorporate it into his salon treatments and eventually, into his own hair care line.
Today, his cult-favorite shampoos, conditioners and styling products are still produced with the help of over 500 Amazonian families who sustainably harvest nourishing ingredients.

Better Not Younger
After 25 years working for companies like Procter & Gamble and L'Oréal, Sonsoles Gonzalez left corporate life behind to launch her own hair care brand.
Inspired by her own hair, Gonzalez's products are designed with women over 40 in mind to change the narrative around aging and celebrate their changing texture rather than feel shame about it.
Within her brand, you'll find cruelty-free, sulfate-free hair care and supplements that make perfect gifts for mamá, tía, and more.

NTRL by Sabs
As a celebrity hairstylist and MUA, Sabrina Rowe Holdsworth had a deep interest and love for the science behind the products she has used throughout her career.
When the COVID-19 lockdowns first began, she found herself with enough time to create her own formulations, focusing on natural hair care, and laying the foundation for her own specialty brand.
Today, the collection includes all-natural and zero-waste shampoos and conditioners rich in botanical ingredients like matricaria, coconut and avocado oil.
