Ecoslay holds the philosophy that what you put on your body is just as important as what you put into it. Aside from offering a line of affordable, quality formulas, the brand takes natural hair care a step further educating consumers about the ingredients it uses by explaining their purpose. The article features Ecoslay founder Adria Marshall.
Black History Month celebrates more than past African American leaders and heroes, and their achievements. It reminds us to also acknowledge those who are shaping the future. With product placement in 30 retailers and 20k followers on social media, Marshall is one African American entrepreneur to watch this February, with her hair care brand.
The business owner, wife and mom of three strives to do more than offer a line of vegan, no-filler formulas for natural hair. She plays the role of educator in two ways: by teaching consumers how natural, eco-friendly ingredients can transform their hair and by serving as a career mentor with the way she manages her brand. Years before Ecoslay started receiving Instagram attention for its curl-perfecting Orange Marmalade or innovative Hot Sauce Pre-Poo/Hot Oil Treatment for a healthy scalp, Marshall began her own natural hair journey and discovered products like these didn’t exist on the market.
As an avid gardener and tech enthusiast, Marshall began to educate herself on effective hair ingredients and to her surprise, the more natural they were, the better her hair looked and felt. What makes Ecoslay different from other natural hair care companies is the way Marshall pays all of her knowledge forward. The brand lists product ingredients and additionally explains their purpose. Despite her success, Marshall manages to stay grounded following four core principles that touch upon education, health and wellness, respecting the environment and respecting humanity.
