  • Meet Pamela J. Booker, CEO of Koils by Nature

    0 comments / Posted on by Pamela Booker

     

    Meet Our CEO, Pamela J. Booker

     

    Blending the essence of beauty with the purest of nature is the motto and mission of Koils by Nature the brand, and its founder and CEO, Pamela J. Booker. A striking beauty standing at nearly 6ft tall, her presence itself is a potent blend of boldness, strength, and power. Hers is a story that is a compelling mix of enterprise and resiliency - characteristics that have made her and her brand the successes they have become.

    Hailing from Beaufort, South Carolina, Pamela is the most genuine of southern girls, full of charm and curiosity. Always on a quest for knowledge, she holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Strayer University and led a career as a network engineer for the United States government before starting her own business. She’s also a proud veteran of the U.S. Army, a decision that fed her desire to learn new things, travel, and seek adventure.

    Aside from learning, health and fitness are two of Pamela’s most favorite things. In search of different ways to live a healthier lifestyle, she made the decision to embrace her natural hair in 2007, well before “going natural” grew in popularity among the masses. With a lifelong appreciation of all natural foods and body products, she found herself discouraged by the lack of products on the market that would help her natural hair thrive. Turning discouragement into action, she decided to make her own products. Pamela set out to create something that was all natural and affordable. With the debut of Koils by Nature in 2009, that dream was finally realized.

    The pride of Koils by Nature and the driving force behind the brand is Pamela’s commitment to quality. Her products are certified vegan, cruelty free, infused with organic essential oils, and handmade with the finest of ingredients. Sold by retailers nationwide and internationally, Koils by Nature make all natural hair care products accessible to people and families of all hair types and textures.

    The face of the brand, Pamela has been featured in or on The Examiner, NaturallyCurly.com, BlackEnterprise.com, CentricTV, the Huffington Post, and MadameNoire.com. In 2016, she was named one of Upscale Magazine’s “Women to Watch,” and is recognized as a respected leader in the natural hair industry.

    A true servant leader at heart, Mrs. Booker also desires to use the success of her business endeavors to strengthen her community and support causes that are important to her. She co-created a platform on Periscope called Black Biz Scope, as an effort to recycle dollars in the Black community. She also donates a portion of KBN proceeds to charitable organizations such as The Red Pump Project, the Lupus Foundation of America, and the Zuri Works, to name a few.

    Pamela J. Booker is a dynamic woman who effortlessly blends together simple things and makes them extraordinary. In addition to being a powerhouse businesswoman, she’s also a loving wife and mother, currently residing in Atlanta, GA.

  • Dry Hair? We Can Help!

    0 comments / Posted on by Pamela Booker

    Dry Hair?  We Can Help!

    Please ensure you drink plenty of water, hydrate your hair from the inside and the out! For Natural Beauties....a spray bottle is a MUST have! You can put purified/distilled water, any carrier oil of your choice, evoo (Extra Virgin Olive Oil), avocado oil (rich in vitamins and beta carotene), sweet almond and grapeseed oils are also EXCELLENT oils, aloe vera juice or gel, a touch of glycerin or honey (humectants - be careful during the winter months)

    Humectants are used to attract, hold and retain moisture, optimizing the hair's resilience, suppleness, and elasticity. Through their moisture absorbing properties, the give hair body and feeling of fullness. Humectants also prevent products from drying out. Natural humectants include vegetable glycerin, sorbitol and honey.

    Do you have dry hair???

    African American Hair is the MOST fragile out of all the races because of our lovely curls, so it must be handled with the utmost care! Our Oily hair is very dry, porous and brittle, mainly because the natural oils have a hard time reaching the ends. The more curls the more fragile and the only thing that can combat dry hair is moisture! Moisture also stops the hair from breaking. Our hair thrives on moisture; our Kids will only flourish when they are well moisturized. African American hair produces more sebum as other hair types. Sebum is the natural oils that hair produces naturally to protect and lubricate our Kids. Almost anything can disturb the moisture balance of your Kids and draw all the moisture out. Extreme weather conditions, Synthetic products, and heat can upset the balance of the hair and make hair very dry, which will lead to breakage! 


    I am asked by many women, how to combat dry hair??? When I am asked this question, I always ask the following questions:

    1. Do you hydrate your hair?? (hair steamer/DC with a plastic cap under the dryer)
    2. How often do you wash your hair?
    3. How often do you DC (deep condition) your hair?
    4. Does your shampoo contain sulfates?
    5. Do your products contain proteins?
    6. Do you spray your hair with water or use water-based products?
    7. Do you seal your hair with a butter or oil?
    8. Are you drinking enough water?
    9. AVOID products with drying alcohols

    Everything listed above can lead to dry hair!

    • Hydration is essential to maintain healthy hair, whether it's natural or relaxed! The ONLY thing that can hydrate your hair is WATER!!! Oils and butters seal the moisture in! I recommend the Huetiful Hair Steamer helps overcome the variables that lead to dry hair. It does this by restoring moisture 5x better than deep conditioners alone. The Huetiful Hair Steamer achieves these great results by opening up the cuticles of your hair to allow the conditioner or hair treatment to be pulled deeply inside the hair shaft. While the hair cuticles are open, the Huetiful Hair Steamer bathes your hair with warm mist to replenish lost moisture. The Huetiful Hair Steamer works excellent with Kids by Nature's Hydrating Shealoe Creamy Conditioner. But just don’t take it from us. Watch these testimonials from others who have used the Huetiful Hair Steamer.
    • Deep Conditioning is a formula designed to improve the health of your hair. Deep Conditioning really penetrates the hair shaft restoring vital vitamins and minerals to the hair. Either by putting a plastic cap on your hair and/or sitting under a hooded dryer. If you do not deep condition at least once a month, please start by deep conditioning 2x a month until you see your hair retaining moisture; once you see a difference in your hair you can cut back to once a month! Deep Conditioning is essential for retaining moisture!
    • Shampooing How often do you wash your hair? Washing your hair too often with a sulfate shampoo will dry out, damage hair, causing breakage. is an Most shampoo contain Sodium lauryl sulfates and/or laureth sulfates are in dish washing liquids to CUT GREASE, so it will do the same for your hair; it will strip all the oils from your hair leaving it dry and brittle. Shampooing is dehydrating for our curly locks and it is NOT necessary for cleansing our hair. Washing your hair with a hydrating conditioner, or Co-Washing is excellent for our hair; it will get rid of excess sweat and sebum. Co-washing will become your Curls best friend!
    • Proteins Hair is composed of a strong structural protein called keratin. This is the same kind of protein that makes up the nails and the outer layer of skin. (Since your hair is 98% protein; unless you have color (which strips a layer of protein off so color can be deposited) you do not need a product that has protein to be added to your hair on a daily or weekly basis)
    • Protein once a month with deep conditioner could be sufficient (pay attention to your hair and find out what works for your hair)
    • Additional protein could cause hair to become dry, brittle and breakage will occur.
    • Having a good balance of protein aids in moisture absorption and help your hair retain moisture.
    • Each strand of hair consists of three layers.
      1. An innermost layer or medulla which is only present in large thick hairs.
      2. The middle layer is known as the cortex. The cortex provides strength and both the color and the texture of hair.
      3. The outermost layer is known as the cuticle. The cuticle is thin and colorless and serves as a protector of the cortex.
    • Spraying Hair with Water/Using Water-Based Productsremember H2O is the only substance on earth that will add moisture to your hair! This means H2O or water-based products (water is the first ingredient on the list) will MOISTURIZE your hair! You MUST SEAL your hair once you've wet it or apply a water-based product; oils and butter creates barrier and forms a seal to lock in the moisture.

    SIMPLE DEEP CONDITIONING RECIPES:

    Old Skool DC 1 Cup of Mayo 1 Egg (excellent protein treatment) (no egg if you are protein sensitive) 1 tsp of (Extra Virgin Olive Oil) 1 tsp of Macadamia Nut oil (or grapeseed, almond, jojoba) 1 tbsp of honey Easy Hair Conditioning Mask 1 very ripe Avocado pitted 1 Egg (excellent protein treatment) (no egg if you are protein sensitive) 1 tsp of (Extra Virgin Olive Oil) 1 tsp of Macadamia Nut oil (or grapeseed, almond, jojoba, evoo - {extra virgin olive oil}) 1 tbsp of honey Leave on hair for 30 minutes or longer with a plastic cap or a hooded dryer or the Huetiful Hair Steamer! 4. Since hair is protein, a diet that is too low in protein may cause some thinning in hair or retardation in the growth cycle. Some conditioners contain proteins; when too much protein is put on the hair, either every week or every two weeks it can leave the hair very hard and brittle. Try to limited protein to the hair at least once a month. Especially if your diet is rich in proteins! 5. Having a Spray bottles is essential of natural hair! It is beneficial to add water to your hair before styling. Water (moisture) keeps your hair flexible for styling and it will not break easily and hair can reach its maximum length. Simple Spritz Recipe 1 - 6-8 oz spray bottle 4 – 6 oz of distilled or purified water (please do not use tap water) ¼ cup of aloe vera juice or gel 1 tbsp of your favorite oil (grapeseed, almond, jojoba, evoo (Extra Virgin Olive Oil), Macadamia Nut oil) 1/2 tsp of glycerin 5-10 – drops of essential oil of your choice

    Oils Excellent for Moisturizing Hair

    Extra Virgin Olive Oil this rich green moderately heavy base oil with a strong aroma is derived from the first pressing of the ripe olives and is high beneficial vitamins and minerals. Olive oil is excellent condition oil for dry hair.

    Macadamia Nut Oil light medium textured, penetrating oil is high in monounsaturated fatty acids; excellent for Kinky Coily Hair. The chemical makeup closely resembles the sebum produces naturally by the scalp and will penetrate the hair shaft adding great moisture to your hair and skin.

    Grapeseed oil is popular because it is odorless and full of minerals and vitamins that help strengthen your hair. It is odorless oil, and can help add shine and moisture to your hair. Grapeseed oil is known for having a high content of linoleic acid, is an unsaturated omega-6 fatty acid that supports cell health. Grape Seed oil is also excellent for protecting the hair against high heat!

    Avocado oil light green based oil is derived from the fatty pulp and seed of the fruit; that is rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, D & E that especially helpful to fry, dull skin and hair.
