To commemorate the kickoff of the 6-Month Protective Style Journey…
While at the World Natural Hair Show last weekend, I had the profound pleasure of chatting with the founder of Alikay Naturals, Rochelle Graham- Campbell.
She is a GEM.
For those that aren’t familiar with Rochelle, she is known as “BlackOnyx77” on YouTube. She founded Alikay Naturals in 2009, after doing her second Big Chop and not being able to find products that helped her grow healthy hair.
(Necessity is indeed the mother of all invention…..)
In the years since this company that was started in Rochelle’s kitchen has grown to be one of the top selling natural hair care product lines in the country.
Living in a military town, it’s not uncommon to hear the question, “Do you offer military discounts?” during a sales transaction. After mentioning to Rochelle that the Sierra Vista-Fort Huachuca joint community is one that thrives because of the mutual respect for and dependence on each other, she excitedly told me that her company admires the hard work of our military, and how important it is to show her support.
The statement below is directly from Alikay Naturals HQ about how they support our uniformed personnel:
Alikay Naturals has supported thousands of deployed US military soldiers over the past 4 years with the shipment hair & skin care products. In honor of our brave soldiers who are holding it down for us daily we are offering active US military troops all over the world 15% off their next order (limit 1 discount per military ID). To redeem this offer, please email a copy of your active duty military ID to email@example.com and we will be happy to process your order.
Kudos to Rochelle and the Alikay Naturals team for appreciating the efforts of servicemembers and offering this discount. Many uniformed textured hair wearers struggle with maintaining their hair while serving our country. It’s nice to know that companies out there that embody the phrase, “Deeds not Words”.
Will you be taking advantage this discount? Would you like to see Alikay Naturals products available locally?
