About Me

Hi I’m Amaya,

And I’m a natural hair product junkie just like you.  By day I work as a communications professional at a non-profit that works to advance equal pay for women, abortion rights and access to health care.

I started my career in politics and when I went natural it was always a big deal in the conservative workplaces of Washington.  These days it’s totally normal to see women across the workplace wearing their hair natural and taking charge.

While I love to shop for products any old place – I thought it was past time that women of color got to shop in an experience that is for us and by us.  And so I started The Brown Beauty Co-op with my partner Kimberly Smith.
