In 2019, the term “representation” holds a new meaning, and while the word may seem as if it’s become commonplace, it remains relevant in the beauty industry. Latinx brands have long made their presence known in beauty, from skin care and makeup, to hair care—and more specifically curly hair care. Some of our favorite brands like Rizos Curls and Honey Baby Naturals bring us curly hair care lines dedicated to curls, coils, and waves, while staying true to their latin roots.
In celebration of Hispanic Heritage month this year, let us put you on to some new products to show support to Latinx owned businesses. Ahead are 10 moisturizing, Latinx-owned curly products— and just in time for your new fall routine.
