Featured Member: Eddie After suffering the devastating effects of severe hair loss and damage related to the mishandling of her hair, Eddie began to research ways to grow her hair healthy and strong. She purchased every product in the beauty supply store that claimed to be a miracle cure for damaged hair, but found that these products did not live up to their claims. Along her journey to healthy hair she discovered priceless information regarding the harmful ingredients contained in hair care products geared towards African Americans; the most effective ways of washing, conditioning and handling African American hair; the most beneficial ingredients for African American hair; and much more. She has compiled her 12 years of research and produced the comprehensive guide to growing African American hair to its fullest potential. The guide includes everything one would need in order to grow and maintain healthy hair. The book is extremely informational, entertaining as well as easy to follow and understand. There is a chart included in the book which reveals the hair-friendly foods, vitamins and minerals, a glossary of ingredients that you should stay away from, as well as a section of homemade deep conditioning recipes. The back cover documents 18 months of hair growth, which is quite impressive. The information Eddie discovered during her research was found to be invaluable, but it did not solve the problem of finding healthy hair care products at reasonable prices. This led her to formulate a complete line of natural hair care products. For years she created homemade concoctions that contained ingredients essential for the health of African American hair. While using these products in conjunction with the information in her book, Eddie consistently saw tremendous improvements with her hair. She then began to make the concoction for family and friends along with providing them with a copy of her book. They too began to reach hair goals never before achieved. In 2007, Eddie decided to market her natural hair care line along with her guide and has found much success. Her website www.fabulousblackwoman.com displays testimony after testimony of accolades and praise for her wonderful products. Eddie currently does online and phone consultations, as well as workshops to teach African American women how to effectively grow and maintain healthy hair. As researching hair and caring for hair became a major part of Eddie’s life she decided she wanted to display her passion in a hot and trendy way, so she designed the Natural Headed Girl line. The line includes shirts, hats and bags that display an African American woman with natural hair. The line was created to encourage African American women to see the natural beauty in themselves and to be proud of every aspect of the culture, heredity and distinctive physical characteristics of the African American woman. While searching for beautiful hair, Eddie found beauty within her that she had neglectfully overlooked for many years. She also noticed that she was not the only woman that failed to realize the strength and beauty of herself and the African American woman as a whole. As she looked around her she noticed women being neglected, abused, mistreated and run down by life. This led her to create her website www.fabulousblackwoman.com. The purpose of the site is to uplift and encourage women, especially African American women. Her mission is make sure that every Black woman knows how fabulous she is and that she shines so bright that everyone who looks at or even thinks of a black woman recognizes her FABULOUSNESS.

  • Great write up! Eddie, I wish you happiness and success - always!
  • I've just been blessed to receive a free sample pack of these products. I must say I have been wanting to try them for quite some time. After just one use I can feel a difference in the texture of my hair. Will continue to use the samples and am anxiously awaiting its results.
