The Afro Source Community

We launched Afro Source with the belief that beauty products should be inherently good for you rather than simply masking a problem with chemicals. After years of struggling to source beauty products that weren’t laden with chemicals, our founder was often forced to turn to U.S brands.

Knowing that there was a wealth of authentic, natural, and homemade secrets here in the UK that were lost locally on the High Street, we wanted to change that.

Imagining how great it would be if there was an online marketplace where we could easily find locally sourced, natural beauty products that were not only good for you but good for our community, we decided to make it a reality.

Since then, we’ve created a network of ethically sourced brands in the U.K that shun the nasty chemicals and use only the top shelf ingredients, to produce organic products that show your natural beauty.

Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could be paired with them? With Afro Source you can.

Meet the Founder

Afro Source was established in early 2016 by founding member Stacy Martin.

This is what our Founder Stacy had to say about her own natural hair journey – “My natural hair journey started in December of 2014. After shaving my hair for most of my adult life, the most important thing to me was growth. My goal was to have hair so big that people at gigs would have to ask me to move. Now as a 5.3 woman, you can imagine the length it would need to grow to become somewhat of an annoyance to tall members of the community. It was only after the first year, seeing my ends break off that length became less important. My goal then became to simply have healthy hair. Using only 100% natural products my hair bloomed and grew more in 6 months than it did in the previous year. It was at that point I realised that having natural hair isn’t just about letting it grow the way Mother Nature intended it to, it’s about the goodness you put into it and what you use to maintain it’s natural state. It’s about loving your natural hair un-conditionally and treating your curls the best way you can with chemical free natural products”.
