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.....
