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.

I enjoyed this oil. The fragrance was wonderful - I got compliments because of it. Next time, I will order a bigger bottle! Also, I have began to notice that my hair appears thicker since I started using it.

GREAT value & effective products

From the Cocktail Hour Massage & Body Oil to the Haitian Moringa Facial Cleanser to the ALWAYS reliable Haitian Castor Oil, this bundle had EVERYTHING you need to stay fresh and beautiful and smelling delicious.

Just Right!

I loved my free sample of the Moringa oil. It's not too greasy and it mixes well with the natural oils on my face.

Mango & Moringa

These products leave my hair soft and smooth. The fragrance is light and refreshing.
