According to a recent study, 45% Black Women are interested in identifying quality products to maintain their hair and scalp under their protective styles. Understanding the trend, Creme of Nature’s objective is to ensure that women wearing protective styles care for the natural hair underneath, which is often forgotten; as well as their desired hairstyle or look. “At Creme of Nature, we do not believe in sacrificing healthy natural hair and scalp care for a great hairstyle,” said Jolorie Williams, General Manager, Revlon Multicultural and Contract Services. “You can have both.
