How We Became Fro Butter

 

"I initially started this business to make ends meet, that was when I discovered that most people did not take the time to pay attention to the ingredients in their hair products. I knew that quality ingredients matter, I also knew that everyday staples such as shampoo and hair grease could contain harmful elements such as sulfates, sodium chloride and silicone. I saw the need for a change  and this was the birth of Fro Butter." -Susana

Our Vision

Our vision is to take away your hair related worries as you watch your #hairGOALS become a reality.

 

How It Works

We have spent years developing a secret formula and process using only the best ingredients that are safe for your hair and scalp and body.

 

Fro Butter solves dry hair issues:

 

  • Reduce flaky and itchy scalp
  • Provide suiting formulas for damaged or chemically produced hair
  • Reduce appearance of breakage and shedding
  • Help to maintain healthy, soft, and moisturized hair
  • Affordable prices that won’t break the bank

 

We Know & Love Shea Butter. But What Is Emu Oil?

Emu Oil is widely regarded as an all-natural hair growth stimulant. The fragrant organic essential oil blend combines the scalp conditioning benefit of Coconut Oil with the sedative property of Lavender. This organic butter may be used on all hair types. It's perfect for keeping your hair and beard velvety soft and hydrated and keeping your skin moisturized and healthy.

 

Why Woodstock, Georgia?

 

After scouting out the Woodstock demographic, we concluded there are very few, if any, establishments within 15 miles of the area which consumers can go to buy hair and skin care products for people of color.  With the expanding new construction of suburban housing, more African Americans have migrated to the area of Woodstock with nowhere to shop for products that cater to us. So we decided to open up shop!

 

Fro Butter will be the first of its kind to cater to this specific need.  Furthermore, to ensure clients feel confident about the validity of her new line, all of Fro Butter’s products are manufactured, retailed, and sold on location at the store front.
