HELM  HAIR:  THE  ORIGINS

At Helm Hair, our narrative is woven from the fusion of words—merging the English "Helm," defining the ship's front tip where it steers, and the Arabic word for dream, "حلم" (similarly pronounced: hulm /hʊlm/). This brand beautifully encapsulates the journey from a dream to reality: the birth of a brand crafted for textured hair by a dedicated natural hair enthusiast not just as a brand but as a lively celebration of the distinctive beauty of textured hair.

OUR  MISSION

Helm Hair's mission is extensively built on continuous advocacy and authentic depiction of natural hair in all its forms. We take pride in embracing the natural beauty of various hair textures. We empower our clientele to care for their hair's health without compromising on hazardous chemicals by offering a carefully curated product line consisting of 100% natural components.

As a beacon of inclusivity, diversity, and individuality, Helm Hair stands firm in its commitment to supporting under-represented communities by providing the healthiest hair care options curated with textured hair in mind. This effort is reflected in our entire product line, which is not only natural but also cruelty-free and vegan. Sustainability is also at the core of our values, evident not just in the quality of our products but also in our packaging and shipping practices. By utilizing reusable containers and water-dissolving packing peanuts, we aim to make a positive impact beyond just hair care.

OUR  INGREDIENTS

At Helm Hair, our commitment to excellence is underscored by the ethical sourcing of ingredients from their countries of origin.

About  the  founder

The roots of Helm Hair extend back to my childhood, precisely at the age of 8. It was during those formative years that I first discovered the intricacies of natural haircare, inspired by the loving maintenance my mother devoted to my hair. Her meticulous routines ignited a profound love for my natural texture, laying the foundation for a passion. As I grew older, I found myself drawn to the beauty and versatility of textured hair and its care. Watching my mother's commitment and experiencing the beauty of my natural coils fuelled an attachment that became a driving force in my life.

At 17, I embarked on a personal journey to carry out a dream, experimenting with different ingredients and formulations. What began as self-care naturally expanded to benefit those around me and the idea of Helm Hair was born. By crafting products for friends and family, Helm Hair became tangible — an organic evolution born from a genuine love for textured hair.

Today, Helm Hair is not just a brand; it's a celebration of the journey that started with childhood admiration, grew through personal experimentation, and blossomed into a commitment to redefining standards in the natural hair care realm. Every product is a piece of this journey, infused with the essence of devotion, commitment, and a profound fondness for natural textures. I am delighted to share this journey with you, and I invite you to embrace the beauty that unfolds when power meets purpose.​Thank you for being a part of the Helm Hair community. Your support means the world, and I am excited for the continued journey ahead as we celebrate the authentic beauty of our hair, one product at a time.​

With gratitude, ​
