Natural Napes was started originally back in 2016 by CEO Stephanie Howard. It began as a way for her to cope with the stressors of being a single mother who was previously in an abusive relationship. This journey of hers was just a hobby but once her friends and family began to ask her about what she was using for her hair and skin she knew she had to share it with the rest of the world. Natural Napes began to take off in 2019 and continues to grow.
Natural Napes was created to provide quality natural hair and skin care products made with 100% high-quality natural ingredients. It began as just a personal hobby of mine and once friends and family began to inquire about the products I was making I knew I had to share my products with the world.
Nape is defined as the back of someone's neck. This specific word made me think about when I was a kid and my mom would straighten my hair with a hot comb. She would use it to straighten my "kitchen" which was a term to describe the hair that was close to the back of my neck.
Our products are designed to meet the needs of the entire family. Every product is formulated and handmade by CEO Stephanie. It was created to help those who struggle with conditions such as alopecia, thinning of the hair, dandruff, eczema, acne, dry skin, dark spots, etc. to gain their confidence back by creating products based on their needs. Natural Napes stands for more than just haircare and skincare. It stands for single mothers, single fathers, and the people who have no hope and think that there are too many obstacles in their way to make their dreams come true. It’s here to show little girls and boys that they do not have to put limitations on what they want out of life because of hardship or obstacles. Stephanie is living proof that obstacles are the foundation to success.
