Sephora Is Finally Carrying Hair Products That Work For Black Women

On March 4, Sephora will make some serious history by launching Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture, a hair care line inspired by America's first self-made woman millionaire.

Now who exactly is Madam C.J. Walker, you ask? She's only the most iconic beauty pioneer, responsible for every black woman's laid baby hairs and nourished edges!

Madam C.J. Walker was born on a Delta, Louisiana plantation where her parents worked as slaves. With no education, she worked as a farm laborer and laundress before becoming a successful beauty entrepreneur.

In the 1900s, Walker formulated a scalp conditioner, which led to the development of a full range of haircare products for black women and a cosmetology school.


And now her legacy continues as Sephora gears up to launch not one, not two, but FOUR collections from Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture.

Designed by Sundial Brands, the maker of SheaMoisture, each line targets specific needs, like moisture retention and curl maintenance, and work on a variety of hair types and textures. The products will be sold exclusively at Sephora beginning March 4.

Rejoice, people, rejoice! The supreme hair angel hath shineth her light on us!
