The Vanity Table: Stylin'

Welcome to one of the new features of our Beautiful You Mondays, The Vanity Table. The Vanity Table will host information on all potions & lotions that will treat your body to a most luxurious experience from head to toe! In honor of Women's History Month, we will not only bring you suggestions for some great products to try, but will be dropping a little history as well. We are proud to kick off the month with a topic that is at the very top of very woman of Color's list: hair care.

Born in 1867 as Sarah Breedlove, Madame C.J. Walker is known to be one of the first self-made millionaires in American History. It was her own hair loss in the 1890’s that caused her to begin experimenting with various homemade and store-brought products. In 1905 Sarah married her third husband, Charles Joseph Walker, a St. Louis newspaperman. After changing her name to "Madam" C. J. Walker, she founded her own business and began selling Madam Walker's Wonderful Hair Grower, a scalp conditioning and healing formula, which she claimed had been revealed to her in a dream.

Today, women like Lisa Price of Carol’s Daughter are leading the way in products created specifically for people of Color. Celebrities like Jada Pinkett Smith attribute their lovely locks to Carol’s Daughter products. Give your hair a special treat with CD’s Saturday Morning Special. Filled with wonderful treats for ladies with both relaxed and natural styles, this gift set contains some of CD's most popular items, including Rosemary Mint Shampoo with Sea Moss, Black Vanilla Leave-In Conditioner, Hair Milk, Kizzi "Stay Put" Hair Pomade, Healthy Hair Butter, and Tui Hair Oil [$50 gift set,].
