A WORD FROM THE FOUNDER

 

 A word from the founder :

Hello beautiful people! For those of you who are curious to know more about us – here is a  word from the founder. She shares her vision, goals, mission and values.

My name is Fatou Sow. I am a 31 years old black canadian entrepreneur, fitness enthusiast and a travel addict. I was born in Senegal and raised in Montreal. People are always surprised to find out that I do not have any professional training as an hairstylist. So how did I go from service director for a major canadian airline to launching my own hair company?  It all started for my beloved mother…

She was my hero and I’ve never met such a strong and kind-hearted woman. She battled against breast cancer close to 8 years. Even through sickness she always wanted to look her best. She was always looking for new hairstyles  and would ask me to style her units. One day I came to realize that we were both spending tremendous amount of money each year on wigs & hair extensions. From that point forward I decided to make my own wigs which I learned from trials and errors, from watching hours of content on the internet about wig making.

I still remember the look on my mom’s face when I gave her the first wig. She was so ecstatic and already making plans to refer me to others cancer survivors and cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy.

I feel so blessed and grateful for my family & closest friends who saw the true potential and supported me from the start to launch my own brand, something I would have never imagined..

Just a few months before launching AVH my mother passed away however I know she is by my side everyday and give me the strength to push forward. She has a front row seat to my development as an entrepreneur and I’m sure she is very proud to see Amala virgin hair involvement with the breast cancer community. Learn more.

 

ABOUT OUR HAIR

Amala Virgin Hair is a luxurious hair brand dedicated to provide you with the finest and highest grade of virgin hair. Our hair is ethically sourced from India, the Philippines, Cambodia .

Before launching AVH we spent months researching and testing hair extensions to find a authentic premium quality. From various conversations with different hair vendors from all around the globe we sadly realized that like millions others out there we were highly misinformed about the hair business. This lead us to ensure that our brand would only carry authentic hair textures. After personally traveling to Southeast Asia and India to visit numerous facilities we found professionally established manufactures with safe working environment and ethical values aligned with ours!

From the moment the hair is harvested it is handled with the utmost care. The hair get sorted by texture and length. It is then washed with natural products to have the quality preserved. Our Raw virgin hair can be washed, bleached, permed, coloured, flat-ironed and curled while still maintaining its quality. We only carry 100% human and authentic textures.
