I founded Madam Indigo out of sheer frustration. Like so many Black women, I play NO games when it comes to my hair. Over the years, I’ve experimented with everything from braids to blonde fades, locs, permed pixie cuts, to weaves and wigs. For over two decades bi-weekly salon visits were my norm. But that all changed in 2011 when I decided to permanently relocate outside of the United States.
Since then, I’ve lived on four continents, and have travelled to nearly forty countries... BUT my hair maintenance routine suffered big time as a result. Because there were such limited options for products and stylists that could slay my hair to my standards, I was literally catching 14 hour flights from Dubai to the United States to have my wig slayed. While living in South Korea I caught a bus, a train and then a subway for TEN hours, just for a Nigerian lady to braid my hair in a dingy storefront salon. In Brazil, I suffered my hair falling out, due to the language barrier that existed between my stylist and I!
I KNOW intimately, the hair care nightmare that my sistas face that reside abroad. Whether you’re in the military, a trailing spouse, a professional expat, or carefree Black girl doing her thing in a foreign land, Madam Indigo was created with you in mind. We offer curated hair care essentials so that you can trek the globe with confidence!
