afrodrops: a Black-owned shop for Afro hair care

afrodrops logo

“Dad, I really don’t like how my afro hair grows, I hate it.”

That’s the opening quote on the afrodrops about us page. It came from the 5-year-old son of Luke Carthy, founder of afrodrops, who felt compelled to make a change in Afro hair care.

afrodrops is a Black-owned shop for natural and Afro hair care products. As Luke mentioned on the site, the products exist in abundance (afro hair care is worth $2.5bn in the US alone) but not many people (can) go to the specialist stores that sell them for various reasons.

Stores like Boots, The Body Shop, Lush, Tesco, and Sainsbury’s should stock Afro hair care products and reflect the needs of all their customers. afrodrops aims to restore that balance.

Stocked brands include:

  • Mielle
  • African Pride
  • Cantu
  • Palmer’s
  • Shea Moisture
  • Curly Kids

Also, if you subscribe to the afrodrops newsletter, you can get 10% off your first order. Head on over to their site today!
