Afroveda is a line of black-owned hair products made from the highest quality oils, herbs, and botanicals available. The makers use a unique process to keep the medicinal and energetic qualities of the plants. They penetrate the scalp and deliver the healing properties of nature. Once these oils reach the hair follicles, it stimulates healthy growth. Afroveda is one of the several black-owned companies that sprung from someone’s kitchen.
The company is the brainchild of Mala Rhodes, a complementary care specialist. Rhodes mixed her own oils to use in massage therapy. When she decided to “go natural,” she needed products that would nourish and nurture her hair. She already had experience in making spa and body products. It made the transition to hair products easy. Mala now creates products for nourishing the scalp. Her products also increase hair growth and improve texture.
