Our #WCW @itsviviankaye has always been proud of her natural hair. The way it feels after a wash-n-go, how her curls look when she's given them the attention they deserve and how many different ways she can wear it. But she also loved experimenting with protective styles like weaves, wigs and braids, and she loved switching up her look on a whim.
In 2010, after watching tons of videos of women unintentionally damaging their natural hair in an attempt to blend it with exotic textures like "Brazilian", "Peruvian" & "Malaysian", Vivian started searching for textures that looked more like her own - and her search came up empty! So in 2012, without any experience, she decided to create a company that not only sold high quality, kinky, curly and natural looking textured hair extensions, but one that also celebrates the women who wear them! What started as an idea has now grown into a multi-million dollar company, and we're so happy to support the work that Vivian is doing!

This September, NDINI is honored to sponsor the signature drink at ‘Keepin' It Real with Vivian Kaye - an intimate chat and in depth Q&A’ moderated by @dowelldresswell Founder & CEO, Chanele McFarlane.

p.s. In addition to the inspiration we’ll be getting, Vivian says there will be REAL good - the kind that requires a fork & knife (and a toothpick!)👍🏾😂
THIS is what we call a good hair day! ✨✨
Thanks to @michelle.ntalami communities of color around the world are currently experiencing a natural hair reawakening! This passionate Nairobi entrepreneur is the founder and CEO of @marini.naturals, a full-range hair care line for natural and afro-textured hair.
