Bianca Chardei : How Did Natural Roots LLC Get its Start?
Kim Richard: Natural Roots got its start after my wonderful husband encouraged me to go natural. His exact words were “I want to see the real you” (hence is where we got our motto from “Embrace The Real You!”) so after relaxing my hair since the 7th grade I decided to put down the creamy crack and embrace the way my hair grew naturally. But, in the meantime, while I was transitioning I did A LOT of research on hair, products, and hairstyles which made me fall in love even more with my hair that gave me a sense of pride and belonging.
Bianca Chardei: Why DIY Natural Recipes?
Kim Richard: I started to make DIY recipes for my hair because of one… I wanted my hair to be healthy as possible and two…. the store bought products would leave flakes in my hair (which drove me absolutely crazy) and it wasn’t long before friends and family started to ask me to make handmade products for them and yes you guessed it Natural Roots was born.
