Donations Needed: Hair Care Products for African-American Women

Our generous donors—donors just like you—often ask if we have any specific needs you can donate. Money is always a perfect fit, of course, but we do serve 90% African-American women, and many who wear their hair naturally have specific hair care needs. Specifically, we are looking for Shea Moisture Products for Hair [shampoo (women/kids), conditioner (women/kids), exfoliating pads, detangler conditioner and curling buttercream (for kids)]. For bath and body we are asking for Raw Shea Butter (face and body) bar soap, Raw Shea Butter and Mafura bar soap, and African Black soap body wash. Other brands are: Alikay Naturals, Carol’s Daughter, Alaffia, and Curls Dynasty.

We also always need laundry detergent as well as larger sizes (4-6!) diapers.
