Tribe Called Curl

With benefits reportedly including hair growth, increased curl thickness, curing scalp infections and lubricating strands, castor is a true miracle oil for the natural hair community.  Upstart beauty brand Kreyol Essence is harnessing the power of castor oil with a uniquely Haitian approach.

Founder Yve-Car Momperousse drew from the beauty traditions and local ingredients of Haiti to create her line of hair and body products. Now four years strong, Kreyol Essence’s emollient rich butters, creams and oils—which are great for coily hair, are poised for a breakthrough.  And, the fact that the company cites the economic development of the first independent Black republic in the western hemisphere as one of its goals is an added bonus.  Tribe profiled the burgeoning brand as part of our coverage on some of our natural hair product businesses, in honor of National Entrepreneurship month.

If you want quality 👌

This oil is an experience, my scalp enjoyed it's smell, it's pour opening ability is unmatched. Simply stated it's the best Haitian Oil I've ever tired. Oh and the thicknesses of the oil is 👍 not heavy I have thin frizzy hair and my hair is not weighted down. I would and have recommended this product, my daughter who is station in Italy came home for a visit and she loves it. You will not regret it.

Hooked on the oil

I'll forever be a fan of the oil. I love how it moisturizes my hair. I normally purchase the chocolate vanilla scent, but I branched out and got the mango, papaya, & coconut and it smells soooo good.

Did what it was supposed to do

The toner was good. It did what it was supposed to do, I just was not very enthusiastic about it because I did not like the smell. I usually use just rose water as my toner and that has been working fine for me. I would recommend it for those that are not picky about scents, because after all, it did work.
