No woman should struggle to love her hair
When I was a little girl growing up in Bangalore, India I was born with skin just a little too dark and hair that was far too curly. In that time and in that place, I didn’t fit the beauty ideal and was bullied and called ugly. I’d see models in magazines with beautifully sleek straight or just slightly wavy hair and compare myself to them and wish I could have hair like that. The inner shame I felt in the mirror for the beauty I was born with, was something I promised myself I’d overcome.
A Gift from the Temples of India
My lifelong personal and spiritual quest to attain the hair that I wanted led me to the temples in India, where women undergo the ritual of Tonsure. This selfless act is meant to be a process of “letting go”, offering our hair to a higher to attain spiritual enlightenment. More importantly, their gift of hair is passed on to other women in the form of extensions, hairpieces and wigs. It is an act that is as beautifully brave as it is fearlessly feminine. For the giftor they are enlightened, for the giftee they are filled with hope and empowerment. If perfection of self is finding a balance, this continuity of love and balance couldn’t be more perfect.
We're About Love, Light, and Ethically Sourced Hair
Today, alongside my husband Gautama, I seek out and ethically source the best quality virgin hair to create the options for you that I didn’t have all those years ago. Loving yourself is a lifelong struggle, but having the knowledge, options and tools to help you shape your image is something we believe deeply in. My hope is that every day when you see that beautiful you in the mirror you say to yourself, “perfect”, and begin your day with love and light.
