African Pride Launches GROW Initiative as a Rallying Cry for Today’s African American Women

The platform will celebrate her unique individuality and expand the possibilities on her path of evolution, all while championing the L.O.C. method 

ATLANTASept. 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — African Pride, an award-winning haircare brand known for addressing the needs of all hair types with premium, natural ingredients, is proud to announce the launch of its new initiative, GROW – a platform that celebrates their core consumer’s unique individuality and expands the possibilities on her path of evolution.

“GROW is all about self-improvement, self-love, and self-care through the art of hair care. It’s a movement that connects minds and expands possibilities,” said Jazzmene Ford, Marketing Manager at African Pride. “We are committed to championing our consumer, women with coily hair, for the uniqueness they represent. Through GROW we will celebrate this beauty, build community, and pivot attention to the growth that comes from embracing your given curl patterns, career aspirations, and beyond. Because at African Pride, we understand that when she wins, we win and when she grows, we all grow.”

The initiative has kicked off with a campaign film to introduce GROW by African Pride and tell the story of how African Pride is there by her side at every stage of her evolution. The campaign will further come to life across paid and organic social media. The brand has also partnered with top aspirational names across the category including celebrity wig & hair artist ambassador, Arrogant Tae, and influencer/entrepreneur, Kheris Rogers – who launched a clothing line with a mission to combat bullying when she was just 10 years old! These influential names will unveil GROW on social media via personal testimonials of their own growth and how-to product videos to further amplify efforts and reach the African Pride consumer where they are. Additional campaign activations include:

  • GROW Beauty Store Takeovers: championing African Pride’s target consumer at beauty supply stores nationwide via a complete store overhaul with product sampling, brand educator sessions and educational material surrounding haircare to career development.
  • GROW HBCU Fall Campus Tours: connecting minds and inspiring growth at HBCU’s across the U.S. The tours will build a sisterhood community allowing women on their career journey to practice the art of maintaining healthy, natural hair at an affordable price point. The campus tour dates are as follows:
  • GROW Sisterhood Influencer Campaign: celebrating all coily types by leveraging smart and creative content from a plethora of hair influencers. The tutorials will not only spotlight the LOC method using African Pride’s award-winning Moisture Miracle line, but also prompt like minded individuals to join in as the creators share their personal growth stories giving a nod to the campaign’s mission.

The GROW initiative ties into every coily women’s routine with the LOC method, a staple amongst the natural community. The LOC Method is a three-step process that helps improve moisture retention by layering products starting from the lightest density and building up to the heaviest. The method can be seamlessly achieved by African Pride’s powerhouse trio from their hero line, Moisture Miracle, designed to nourish and hydrate one’s natural texture: Moisture Miracle Coconut Milk & Honey Leave-In ConditionerBaobab Oil Leave-In Cream, and 5 Essential Oils which will be launched as part of the initiative with a bundle deal on Amazon.

Come 2023, the GROW initiative will amplify via a partnership with a cause platform that champions career development, internships, and mentorship for the African American women.
