Before there was great natural hair care lines such as Carol's Daughter geared towards African American woman, there was "Madam Walker's Wonderful Hair Grower."

Madam Walker's Wonderful Hair Grower was developed by the late iconic Beauty Mogul Madam C.J. Walker. Her Entrepreneurial spirit led her to become the wealthiest African American of her time, and also the first American self made millionaire of her time.

Madam C.J. Walker's idea for developing her own line of hair care products came due to having suffered from a scalp disorder, which caused her to shed excessive amounts of hair. One of her first products "Madam Walker's Wonderful Hair Grower, " was designed to provide nourishment for the scalp using a conditioning and healing formula. The success of her company flourished once she began going door to door marketing her products as well as providing demonstrations. She proved that with hard work it is possible to live the American dream.

Madam Walker's legacy continues to live, and is with great honor to pay tribute to Madam C.J. Walker.

"I got my start by giving myself a start." ~Madam C.J. Walker~
