A Brand With A Meaning!

A Brand With A Meaning!

Last night I attended One Little Parrot's Debut Dinner. It was a lovely event celebrating the official launch of their brand video. Women, partners, and supporters gathered in anticipation awaiting the final product. What caught my attention the most was the story behind the company, particularly the core focus of Mindful Beauty.

"May your mind be as beautiful as your hair."

Friend Brandi & Owner DeQunda

I had the pleasure of meeting the beauty brand owner, DeQunda, or as she introduced herself 'Dee'. She glided around the room with a smile from ear to ear, mingling with new faces and serving looks at the photo booth. 

She shared her story of compassion and healing. While working at a hospital, a patient's suicide attempts made an everlasting impression on Dee's life. The patient was struggling with poor self-image originating from trichotillomania, a hair-pulling disorder that causes the urge to pull hair out due to anxiety or depression.

"In hopes of helping her patient, DeQunda began to search for hair care products that could promote regrowth and reduce the urge to pull, considering that was the origin of her pain. When met with no resolve, DeQunda realized the solution she was searching for was one she’d have to create herself."
When it came time to name her new line of healthy hair products, DeQunda thought back to the similar nature of parrots and their tendency to pull their feathers when anxious or overstimulated.

One Little Parrot products contain natural ingredients and have no harmful additives. In addition to the business being handcrafted in the US, affordable and free from animal testing, they strive to provide customers with lasting healthy hair results. 

I took home the Plumeria and Yucca Leave-In Conditioner, and to say the least... I'm obsessed! I used it as soon as I got home. I sprayed a small amount in my hair, twisted it in sections and left it in overnight. In the morning it was as if my hair had come back to life. It was smooth, had bounce and my horrible slip ends were almost nonexistent.

Thank you One Little Parrot for having me and sharing your story! I'm excited to try more products. Shop their latest collection HERE.
