It all started in a kitchen.

“Some friends of mine were making their own [natural hair products] and we were talking about how expensive natural hair care products are and I decided, why not just make my own?,” says Pamela Jenkins, founder of Koils by Nature, a company that provides homemade completely natural hair care and skin products.

After Pamela realized that the ingredients for natural beauty products were inexpensive, she came up with the logo and name and then the company’s Web site went live in December 2008 and product shipment began in March 2009.

Pamela used to work as a network engineer for the government and decided to leave that job in November 2009 and now she pursues Koils by Nature full time.

Pamela creates all of her products in her the comfort of her own kitchen in Temple Hills, Maryland, and she plans on moving production to her basement because she needs a larger work area.

“I feel that it’s important to make my own products,” she says.

As her company expands, she says she still wants to continue hand-making her products but that she may hire other employees as demand increases for her products.

“I want to make sure that I keep the integrity of the products,” Jenkins says. “I want to make sure the people are still getting great quality products.”

Pamela is also working on getting a master’s degree in herbal studies from Tai Sophia Institute in Laurel, Maryland.

Pamela says her prices are what make her company different from other natural beauty product companies. Koils by Nature has several products ranging in price from $6 to $30.

She started out making hair products for herself and then she began researching different ingredients and began creating and producing different products on a larger scale.

The most popular product is the Nourishing Hair and Body Butter Sweet Almonds Joy. It is a butter that can be used not only on your hair but as a moisturizing lotion for your body. This versatility is one of the main reasons why these body/hair butters are so popular.

"Thanks so much—the product is so versatile; I think that's what is most appealing to me because I can not only put it in my hair but after I shower it works as a great skin moistener for this rough Michigan winter skin. [I] love it, [and] will be ordering more products soon. Thank you again for asking my opinion, I'm honored,” says Crystal Wilburn, a customer from Detroit, MI who posted a testimonial on the Web site.

Other body/hair butter scents include unscented, Marvelous Mango, Citrus Bliss, Heavenly Delight and Wonderful Watermelon.

These butters come in three sizes: 4 ounces, 8 ounces and 16 ounces.

Koils by Nature also provides alcohol-free herbal gels, stimulating hair-growth serums, leave-in conditioners, hair and skin products for men and gift baskets that serve as great presents for men or women.

Customers can buy her products on the Koils by Nature Web site by using PayPal or a Google pay account. Pamela also takes orders over the phone and accepts money orders. Currently these products are only available online, but Pamela’s next step is to try and sell her products in Whole Foods stores in her area.

The hair & body butters are amazing, and their fragrances are like no other! They're like perfume for your hair & body. I can smell them all day long! My favorites are Heavenly Delight & Citrus Bliss. I like using them to soften up my old wash & go's or puffs.
Want to love, but be aware that, even though the site does mention a relatively short shelf life of the products, it is an overstatement. My peppermint styleing gel has mold in it after two months.
Everything in Pamela's line is fabulous and nothing but quality. The price you can't beat with a stick either and her shipping is very reasonable. LOVE!
I love Koils by Nature products. I have the conditioner, the leave in, the gel and the butter and I love them all! Amazing, quality proucts.
