Issa Rae’s hair game is always on point, so it’s only right that she is taking her talents into the haircare industry as the co-owner of Sienna Naturals, according to Allure.
Rae joined forces with Sienna Naturals’ CEO and founder Hannah Diop in a move to rebrand the clean hair-care line designed for coily, curly, Afro-textured hair.
“I think hair has always been a part of the conversation for me, and it’s been such a huge part of my identity,” Rae told Allure. “[Even my] debut was a big chop that I did for Awkward Black Girl.”
Naturalistas can get their hands on the updated variety of products from the brand which includes the Salon In A box collection that comes with H.A.P.I. Shampoo, Dew Magic, a leave-in conditioner, Plant Power, and Lock & Seal. If that isn’t enough, the line has more in store later down the road.
Rae, who calls herself more of a “lazy” natural, says although she always gets questions about her hair, she has never felt qualified enough to speak on it as someone who isn’t a professional. Despite this, in true Issa Rae fashion, she isn’t afraid of a challenge and credit’s familiarity with Diop’s brand and her admiration for the haircare business as inspiration to move forward on this new venture.
“I’d been watching Hannah’s journey for a while, seeing her developing these products. I got interested in the natural, organic side of hair care,” said Rae. “I felt like this was a great opportunity to partner up- not to mention obviously loving what the products did for my own hair.”
