The history of Black hair has been one of slavery, tears, shame, rebellion, pride & now finally love!
It all started in 1992 when mother of three and teacher Angela Green created a tool to help her take down her daughters’ braids. After creating the prototype for her family, she considered taking the tool to mass market. But unfortunately, innovation in the early 90s wasn’t supported by the business resources and funding that are available now and so she had to shelf her idea.
27 years later, Angela’s daughter Saraa Green took the prototype and built a business plan for it as part of her MBA graduation project. Discovering how much of a market there was for TheBraidReleaser proved that nearly 3 decades later, beauty tool innovation for women of color was still an afterthought.
TheBraidReleaser is more than just a tool for protective styles; it’s a statement to the world that Black women are no longer content with just “making do” anymore. Our needs are just as important as everyone else’s.Learn more
