Curly Girl Roots was founded by myself(Detra) and my daughter(Sahmoan). I am a stay at home mom and Sahmoan is a rising college freshman (George Mason University) and we reside in the state of Virginia.
My inspiration to start Curly Girl Roots came from Sahmoan who currently takes a Graphics Communications Class as a part of her curriculum. She started designing T-Shirts for her friends and had quite the side business going. Some of her most requested shirts were those that displayed black and natural hair pride and so we knew there was a market for them. Based on that and several other factors we decided to start curlygirlroots.com.
We are just a week old and only have a few designs but our plan is to continue to come up with more tees and to tell everyone in the world that it is okay for us to be black, natural and proud and it doesn’t have to be taken as racism.
I have to say that I love them all because it is something that my daughter and I created together, but What Bad Hair Day was the first of the Bunch so for me that one if I have to choose. For her The Melanin Tee( because she came up with that one on her own) and Unbothered because of the attitude she gives.
My advice to a rising entrepreneur would be that if you do not try you are for sure to fail. Do Not be discouraged by the No’s you will certainly get, because there are 7 billion people on this planet and you will find your YES!
