When you can’t find what you’re looking for, make it yourself. That’s exactly what Nickie Nougaisse did. Nickie didn’t grow up thinking she’d create hair care products, in fact, she spent her time getting degrees in Psychology, Criminal Justice, Child Delinquency, and Protection. She fell into Curls Dynasty as a means of desperation with her own hair. Up until that time, she’d been busy advocating, investigating, and protecting those who needed her the most, women and children survivors of abuse.
And yet, her journey was far from over. In fact, her journey started in Haiti where she was born and raised, though she calls Florida her home today.
She’d spent years straightening her hair via processing, and after so many years of the continual use of these chemicals that damaged and singed her hair, she finally had enough. She decided it was time to let her naturally curly, coiled hair grow in, and she was finished smothering it in chemicals that were doing her harm.
She dabbled in multiple products, but nothing seemed to help or do what it said it would. In frustration, she started mixing natural ingredients in her kitchen to see if she could figure out a formula that would work for her. After trial and error, she came across a combination of ingredients that did wonders. Her hair finally grew healthier. And, there were no nasty chemicals in the products. Other people started noticing how great and healthy her hair looked. They even started asking if she’d make batches of her homemade hair products for them.
She realized she was onto something, and what started in a kitchen expanded over time, and Curls Dynasty can now be found in big box stores like Target!
Nickie understands what it’s like to struggle while trying to build a dream. She started out with mere pennies, but it was the dedication and continual effort, along with refusing to give up that she eventually found her success. The only way to find success is to keep going, even in the face of rejection. When you believe in something whole-heartedly, don’t give up.
Nickie Nou (as she’s known on social media) uses only organic and natural ingredients in her products, so women with kinky, coiled, or natural hair that needs extra care and nourishment can know they are helping their hair, rather than damaging it with chemicals. Curls Dynasty also has products that allow you to target your specific frustration with their line of cleansers, conditioners, masques, and more.
Her own hair was dry and needed absolute hydration and moisture. It was not only dry but dried out quickly. She loves her new healthy relationship with her hair and finally understands what’s best for it. It was a long journey, but she’s a warrior, like her mother who raised her with faith and strength. Today, she’s raising two boys in sunny Florida.
So many women force their hair straight and use chemicals that can burn, singe, or damage both your hair, hair follicles, and scalp. There are better ways to treat yourself and learning to love your hair and using the right ingredients is a step in the right direction.
Nickie is a woman changing the face of business, like many others. When you’re ready to go back to natural, healthy hair, Curls Dynasty is the place to start. Whether you’re looking for stress-free detangling, gentle cleansers, or deep and rich moisturizing, Curls Dynasty has a product for you.
