Dominican-American sisters Cory Dahlia and Nicole Varona were inspired to launch a natural hair line after both transitioning back to their curls. They embraced the ancestral hair-care remedies they grew up using to nourish their strands back to health. "Our Dominican culture is reflected in our formulas. We incorporate hibiscus flower, commonly known as la flor de la sangre de Cristo in DR," the sisters told us. "We grew up seeing this flower in every patio back home, and its medicinal features have great benefits to help damaged hair. We use mango butter instead of other butters but not only for its outstanding benefits but because it's a fruit that takes us back to our childhood. We grew up eating mangos as a snack every time we visited family en el campo. Lastly, aloe vera is another ingredient that Latinos and Dominicans love. It's like our Vicks but for beauty in DR. You will find it in every hair remedio."
The DN Organics Ultra-Defined Curls Leave-In Cream ($27) is formulated with these nourishing ingredients, leaving curls deeply hydrated, defined, and super soft to the touch.
