The sky’s a peach, and hummingbirds chirp in the neighbor’s bottle brush tree. With the fresh February air in my face, I am on my way to the beach and loving my hair: today, just like every day this week, thanks to the Onyx Box, courtesy of WE ARE ONYX. Finally, a curated selection of high-quality products made just for me! As a mixed-race black woman, I’ve conducted a lifelong search for the best hair care. It’s refreshing to discover someone out there is thinking of me and how to make me look my natural best. The first time I tried Beija Flor Naturals Crème Brûlée Moisturizer for kinks and curls, I was complimented at my Hollywood yoga studio: “Girl, how did you get your curls so defined? Not that they weren’t before, but…wow!” I replied with joy, “Thanks for noticing, I got it from my Onyx Box!”
Like a gift of sound advice from a trusted friend, my Onyx Box was beautifully packaged, well-timed, and full of new ways to discover the truth of my natural beauty. As I opened the mod colorful, luxe logo’d box, broke the seal, and parted the deep pink tissue paper, I felt it was Christmas morning, Easter Sunday, and my twenty-first birthday all over again! There were so many great products, and all with a great story behind them.
