Name and What do you do at your salon… (owner, stylist, etc)
My Name is Tamika Fletcher and I the co-owner and a stylist at Natural Resources Salon.
What inspired you to do so [co-own Natural Resources Salon]?
When I went natural the DIY approach was close to my only option. I recognized a need for quality natural hair service as well as natural products that were natural and worked without excess chemicals and fillers. I also recognized the need for general natural hair education. Most cosmetology curriculum begins education with relaxers. I believe
educating my clients on natural hair feels like an oral history story I’m meant to share from my chair!

What came first, creating natural hair products, or your natural hair journey and why?
My natural hair journey was first. I loved experimenting with products but I could never figure out which ones worked best for my hair. It seemed like after prolonged use of any product my hair rejected it. Understanding ingredients were the key to unlocking my search for better products. Once I understood which ingredients work best on curly hair the journey was much easier.
I pack a small amount of each ingredient below into 1/4 c and blend into a green creamy paste. Apply to wet hair for 15 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water. Enjoy nourished shinier curls the natural way!
Vitamin e capsule.
What inspired you to create Earth’s Nectar?
The products were inspired by a request or general hair complaint that my clients expressed during appointments or consultation. I wanted products and services that addressed their chief complaints – dryness, brittle hair, itchy scalp, thinning hair etc. I looked to nature for solutions to their problems. Each year we add products that directly address a need.
