Marketing expenses for a holistic haircare Company whose mission is to help make the world a better place…one hair at a time. HAIRiette! By Orange is the New Black actress Tanya Wright

My name is Tanya Wright! I play the role of Crystal Burset in ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK. I created HAIRiette-- a hair and media company--in loving celebration and gratitude of my crazy, curly hair and all the things I have learned as a result of my struggle with it: patience, resiliency, how to be "elastic" in life and the power of letting go. I wrote a book called I FOUND GOD I MY HAIR: 98 spiritual principles I learned from my relationship with my hair and created a high-quality hair care line called HAIRiette! We have a yummy co-wash (conditioner and wash), curl creme and oil blend made from Kokum Butter (a fruit from India) and Marula Oil (a tree from West Africa). A portion of the proceeds of every product sold goes to The Actor's Fund, an organization that serves entertainment professionals in crisis, need or transistion.

I am excited to say that HAIRiette is now available at the NYC 59th Street WHOLE FOODS store where we SOLD OUT on our first outing! We would like to expand our little haircare company and we need funds to market it. The money raised via fundrazr will go to (1) printing in-store posters (2) marketing our web series about gratitude called HAIRiette: HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS and (3) publicity for the brand. We also do a lot of free workshops at churches (more recently at Mount Airy Church in DC, First Corinthians Baptist Church in NY). We want to make more stops around the country spreading our best selves. We feel happy to have made a product that folks love, but it's equally important to let folks know...we're here! :) 

You can help us do that by contributing to our campaign. Check out our FIRST EPISODE of the HAIRiette: HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS series about GRATITUDE! (above). It also tells the story of how the HAIRiette haircare line came to be.
