For many people, their hair is a crucial part of their identity. It can make a person feel more confident, or it can be something that they don’t like about themselves. Quality hair products can help with that, but accessing them isn’t always an easy task. Quaishanna (aka Quai) Myers, the founder and CEO of Hair Love by Quai, knows this pain all too well. Being of Jamaican descent, Quai has naturally curly hair. While she loved and embraced her curls, she often found it difficult to get the right products for her tresses. When she did, she happily shared them with friends who also had naturally curly hair.
As she got older, Quai realised she could put together a product line for curly-haired people where they could get products that helped with hair growth & care – therefore, leading to overall hair health…all in one place. After years of searching for the right products, Quai launched Hair Love by Quai, a curated hair care & growth product line, with curly haired people in mind. Hair Love’s goal is to provide people with the appropriate hair growth & care products all the while, empowering curly-haired people to love and embrace their curls. Since the inception of the Hair Love in 2020, Quai has achieved major milestones, including having her products sold in major Toronto malls like Yorkdale, Eaton Centre, and Scarborough Town Centre via Black Owned TO and Canada Black Owned MarketPlace. She has also been featured on podcasts about female entrepreneurs, has spoken to youth groups about entrepreneurship and has donated her silk scrunchies to health care workers across the GTA.
From the beginning, Quai’s vision has always been clear: she wants to help others – and right now she’s starting with hair. One way that Hair Love currently is making a positive impact in the world is by donating a percentage of sales to Lupus Canada and Black Lives Matter. Her products include a detangling brush, satin bonnet, mist spray bottle, and hair vitamin gummies. The Hair Love vitamin gummies are made in the USA in FDA-inspected and approved facilities. They are super yummy – containing the juice of real berries. “If you like berries and/or candy, you’ll love these gummies” Hair Love promises.
With a year of rigorous testing and refending, Hair Love products are bound to help curly-haired people around the world reach their hair growth and care goals.
“I’m addicted to the detangling brush. I’ve always loved my curly hair, but combing through it was a nightmare. After many combs, I can finally say I found the solution with this brush for my curls,” says one customer. With various positive product reviews, it’s safe to say Hair Love is succeeding at its mission of helping people achieve overall hair health.
As more and more curly hair products emerge in the market, Quai is committed to being at the forefront of innovation. “I’m excited to see more people embrace their curls, and I’m excited about contributing some exciting new products,” she says. The goal is to expand the brand further in the next 2-5 years and have Hair Love by Quai products sold around the world. Quai is also big on giving back and empowerment – she plans to enter the mentor and leadership space by equipping youth with leadership and entrepreneurship skills.
