WE CELEBRATE OUR EDGES AND THE WOMAN BEHIND THEM – MADAM C.J. WALKER – IN HONOR OF BLACK HISTORY MONTH!
Monday, Feb 5, 2018

In honor of Black History Month, we are celebrating the first American woman to become a self-made millionaire– Madam C.J. Walker.


She was an entrepreneur, philanthropist and political, social activist. She is responsible for creating the first hair straightening formula and hot comb known as “Madam C.J. Walker’s Wonderful Scalp Ointment.” She also went on to create a line of haircare products after she suffered hair loss due to a scalp ailment. She traveled around the country to demonstrate her product and got her coin going from door to door.

“I am a woman who came from the cotton fields of the South. From there I was promoted to the washtub. From there I was promoted to the cook kitchen. And from there I promoted myself into the business of manufacturing hair goods and preparations.I have built my own factory on my own ground.”

Women everywhere thank you, Madam C.J. Walker especially Da Brat and Porsha!
