Meet Glynnis and Shelly Smith, the dynamic sister duo behind Meme Natural You, a Black-owned line of all-natural, plant-based products that are making waves in the world of textured hair care. Based in Kansas City, Kansas, they are now known for their latest creation, the Nutritional Hair Growth & Scalp Oil, but their journey is a remarkable tale of determination, dedication, and cultural preservation.
The Smith sisters embarked on their path to success in 2018 when they founded their company. Their mission was clear from the start: to address the unique hair care needs of Black women and transform the world of textured hair care. Their products, now widely used in hospitals, have made a significant impact on the diverse needs and environments of children.
The Smith sisters spent seven years owning a beauty supply store in 2000, followed by over two decades of operating Braid Heavens, a hair salon that became a local legend. Their stories have been featured in prestigious magazines such as Allure, Essence, KC Studio, American Salon, and various local media outlets.
