Courtney Adeleye: The Hair Empress
Can you tell us about your proudest business moment thus far?
Our growth! We entered into 20,000 retail doors in less than one year.
How do you stay motivated in times of hardship?
My family and my staff motivate me because I know there are a lot of people who depend on me, so it’s much bigger than myself.
When did you realize that your brand had officially taken off?
I realized that my brand had taken off when I saw my first product featured in Essence magazine!
What is the best hair care tip you have ever heard?
Just to be patient with your hair journey because you learn a lot of things about your hair---especially if you’re dealing with a new texture you’re not accustomed to. Just be patient with it and learn from every challenge. It makes a huge difference!
Anything else you'd like to add?
When it comes to hair care, do the best you can to take care of it and it’ll flourish---as long as you’re alive. Have fun with it. Do what you want to do with, not what society tells you to do with it.
