“I created OrganiGrowHairCo after an extremely bad haircut, awful extensions, and going from dark brown to blonde. My hair was dry brittle, lacked volume, strength, length, and my roots were curly but my ends were straight. Even before doing all that damage my hair had been long for most of my life, but for the most part was in poor condition from heat styling, using shampoos with sulfate and parabens in them, and using styling products with chemicals in them.
I was desperate to grow my hair back, and i was inspired by my young daughter to get the curls i always wanted. I began heavy research, looking for everything I could get my hands on. After years of research and experimentation, I was able to not only grow my hair, but get curls that excedded my expectations, restore shine and for the first time get the fullness and massive volume i craved.
People could not believe that I was able to bring my hair to this point and would often ask me what my secret was! I decided to couple my love for people and my obsession with healthy hair and create a VEGAN, ORGANIC all natural line that caters to ALL ages and hair types. We are all created equal, but our hair is not. Therefore, I created each oil specifically for each hair porosity.” ~ KAY COLA (CEO ORGANIGROWHAIRCO & ORGANIGLOWSKINCO)
In 2013, I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Triple Negative breast cancer. During this time, I not only changed my outlook on life, but I also paid attention to what I ate, my alkaline water intake, and most importantly what I used on my skin. Alongside chemo, I had to have radiation Monday thru Friday for 8 weeks, which is when I decided to make my own therapy cream with healing ingredients I knew would help and/or minimize the burns.
As we all have heard, radiation is pretty rough, but using raw plants and butters truly helped maintain my skin during treatment. After completing that chapter in my life, I dug deeper. Through education, research and experiments, I found my passion for wanting to make skincare products that allowed everyone not only the comfort in knowing they’re using chemical-free products, but also products that worked.
This life experience is what opened the door for Kay and I to come together and focus on making a difference in the lives of those suffering from skin conditions and acne. We believe things don’t have to be complex. Sometimes going back to the basics is what works.— KRISTIN SMITH (CO CREATOR ORGANIGLOWKSINCO)
