The BrownGurl Story

In June 2013, I decided to begin my natural hair journey. Little did I know how much of an affect this decision would have on my life. "Going natural" encouraged me to look at myself in a way that I never have before. What initially began as a journey about hair, soon became a journey of self discovery.

 

Who knew such a journey would become one of the greatest teaching moments in my life? It encouraged me to love and embrace the woman that I am from the top of my kinkiest curl to the tip of my toes. The brown gurl attributes I once deemed deficits were now assets and for the first time in my life I truly saw a beautiful black woman.

 

It was at that moment the BrownGurl Collection was created. I wanted to share that same sense of pride and beauty with other women of color. Today, the BrownGurl tees are an extension of that realization. They are a reminder that brown gurls truly are beautiful!

 

With sassy, yet playful phrases and statements BrownGurl tees will delight all those who encounter them. For the brown gurl herself, they are a statement that's powerful, witty and true to life. For me, they are a lifesaving endeavor.....
