The idea for Umi’s Roots® was sparked in late 2016, but the brand came to life during the pandemic and social justice movement. Our founders made a promise on Juneteenth 2020 that they would build something that could be passed down to their children and create a lasting legacy to inspire community, Black ownership, and self-sufficiency for generations to come.
Umi’s Roots® products are handcrafted to ensure the safest and healthiest outcomes for your hair and skin. We use high quality, all-natural ingredients that accelerate hair growth from the root, protect and strengthen ends, and lock in moisture to keep your hair healthy and beautiful from the inside out.
As a devoted wife and working mother of two, I know the struggle of trying to maintain a household, a career, and a healthy head of natural curls for my daughter and me. After three big chops, countless videos, and a closet full of products, healthy moisturized and protected hair was still out of reach. I researched, got in the kitchen, and after some trial and error, Umi's Roots® was born!
Not only do I want our products to keep you and your hair healthy, I also want our products to inspire confidence in your natural beauty. I want our daughters to embrace who they are and rock with it unapologetically! From my family to yours, we appreciate you making Umi's Roots® a part of your natural hair care regimen.
