Featured Exhibitor: The Human of Color


Who are you and what do you do?

We are The Human Of Color Haircare. We are a high-quality haircare at a affordable price that caters to the textured and curly headed community. Our products are natural, sulfate and parable free products. We range from by our washing needs to styling. Our mission to be a part of everybody daily life and encourage woman and men to embrace one’s true self every curl and kink.

Is this a full-time business for you?

Yes, After I get off work from my Day job- I spend many of my nights and weekends working on improving, answering emails, packing orders, and more.

What do you think sets your products apart from others?

I am set apart because of a few things; All-natural products that are sulfate and parable free. My line has a product range from 2~4 type hair which can help all type of curly headed men and woman. As well as everything is Black owned sourced (labels, product, marketing, ingredients).

What motivates you to create?

The need for products that work and created by somebody in the Black Community. Many products in stores at this moment say they support the textured band curly headed community but do not have the key ingredients that we need such as oils, sulfate free and natural ingredients.

Where did your business name come from? Is there an interesting story behind it?

The Human Of Color, is my personal IG name and I came about that a few years ago because I wanted to HUMANIZE the phrase “people of color”. I see each culture as individual, with individual needs, individual struggles, and experiences, so why group us as something so “open as people” but see me as the HUMAN I am that has color.

What are some tips or suggestions you would like to offer to fellow makers?

Create from a passion. Start a business or creating something is easier when you wake up thinking about it. Hair care is not a job or a hassle because it’s something I been playing in since I can remember. I feel my whole life I have been training to build a Haircare line because I was always researching about natural products to make my hair grow, hold moisture and shine.

What was your first memory of why I started making Haircare?

When Tianna was 22, she made the decision to go natural with my hair. It wasn’t an easy choice and she was afraid, but she knew in my heart it was what she wanted and needed to do. She thought to herself, “I’m going to do this? No more hiding. This is who I am as a woman, this is what I want the world to see.” She was completely unprepared for the significance this decision would have on her and her self-esteem at first.

What has been your favorite moment since creating your business?

Hosting a Free product giveaway event at one of the largest Universities in Minnesota, and being nervous I would not be received well, and at the end of the event... I had over 5+ BIPOC students crying in my arms from joy and being seen on campus!- I late found out I am and still only the FIRST Black female haircare line that has even been sold/partnered with the University.

What are some inspirations for your work?

When you hold a bottle of The Human Of Color product, you’re holding something that STANDS for something, Social justice, Equal opportunity, and closure of the financial gap among the Black community working hard to keep recycling our dollars. Products that are plant-derived, natural, and organic are created by a textured-headed woman who knows the needs of her customers. The Human Of Color Haircare is made to support the needs of all our textured and curly-headed ladies and men. Products that serve Moisture Retention, Shine, and Growth.

The Human Of Color Haircare goal is to support the black community (textured and curly-headed) and to provide us with something we know is really ours
