whatismaneinsightsIt’s been a while, but the short hiatus allowed me to do some deep soul searching. As I’ve shared with many of you, when I founded Mane Insights, my vision is to use my love of science and professional experience to educate women about their unique hair needs.

My goal is to empower you to take charge of your hair! Let’s face it, the state of hair from women of African descent is facing many challenges – premature receding hair lines, excessive hair breakage, product misuse and a misconception that “natural” always means healthy.  Our hair needs help. And, even though I’ve already helped a number of you, I still feel born to make a larger impact on the health of all our hair.

When I jumped ship from Unilever to work at the L’Oréal Institute for Ethnic Hair and Skin Research, it put me on the front end of groundbreaking research about the specific needs of ‘my people’. L’Oreal offered me the opportunity to to make scientific discoveries that impacted me and my daughters and allowed me to help curly-haired women from all over the world to tame their mane. Who wouldn’t want such an awesome job?

My experiences in Corporate America were very rewarding. I developed a unique expertise that translated into me assisting curly-haired individuals along with those from various international geographical regions to achieve their specific hair goals. That was my original purpose in founding Mane Insights – to individualize the hair needs of women from all over the world.

I’m proud to say, I’ve done just that  –  assisting women and children by educating and getting them on the right hair care paths.

But, there are still unanswered questions:

“What happens when I change my style?”

“I put a new treatment in my hair and now I don’t know what to do!”

“I want to help my niece, but she has her own mind and is damaging her hair!”

“My favorite products were reformulated and now I don’t get the same results.”

The questions are endless. But, I’m here for you. The main service I provided helped you with a snapshot of your life, when in actuality, you are experiencing a lifelong documentary. We are continuing on our hair journey – together.

We all know nothing stays the same and that also goes for  your hair. So, while I still help women with real-time hair issues, my soul searching showed me how necessary it is for me to educate for long-term results.
