The Chemist


Hey curlfriend!

Where do I began? I’m a formulation chemist, born in Newark, New Jersey, currently residing in North Carolina.  

I have a Bachelors and Masters of Science degree in Chemistry from North Carolina Central University!


I’m super passionate about developing hair care products and teaching other women how to care for their hair!

As a formulation chemist, I’ve worked on a wide array of skin and hair care products for billion dollar brand companies (so much fun!).


When I’m not in the lab, I’m here teaching women from all over the world healthy hair care practices & on my YouTube channel which has close to 3 million views (hey ya’ll!).

I’m SUPER happy you’re here, and I’m looking forward to connecting with you and your hair!
