    New Hair Care Products from Entrepreneur Mom

    Store shelves with dozens of hair care product brands

    Mom gives up sales career to create hair care products for curly hair

    Trust me, it takes guts to walk away from a career to do what you love and start running your own business. But it is worth it. Sometimes I wake up and have to pinch myself for having the opportunity to work from home in my bunny slippers and sweats. I know many of you are living a life of misery in one of those corporate cubicles . . . ish! So many of you could be working in your own home office that you design and that you love instead of a small cubicle! With the power to pick what office equipment and furniture you want from sites like office monster while all in the comfort of your own home, why wouldn’t you want to work from home? Don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone and start a business on your own. There are so many resources out there to help you tackle the tricky parts and learn everything there is to know about starting and running your own business, from choosing a virtual office address to hiring staff.

    There are tons of opportunities out there for women, the New York times did a great article in January about a few of the inspirational “You Go, Girl” stories that are out there. My hubby Gary teaches a bunch of entrepreneurial type classes at Online Class Source and has begged me to put together an online class for women entrepreneurs. What do you think? Are there enough of you out there that would be interested in such a class? Help me put together a wish list of what you’d like to see in such a class. Leave me a comment.

    Anyway, back to the subject at hand here is an inspirational press release from a lady who had the guts to quit her day job and start a line of hair care products for all of you curly heads out there. If you’ve struggled with curly hair issues, give her products a try. Give a boost to a new start when she needs it the most.

    Mom Entrepreneur Creates Salvation for the Frizzy-Haired NORMAN, Okla., May 31 /PRNewswire/ — If you have curly hair, you wish it was straight. And if you have straight hair, you wish it was curly. Business owner Kelly Foreman, who grew up with tight, corkscrew hair, is hoping to help adults and children who aren’t happy with their frizzy, fuzzy or hard-to-handle hair.

    Growing up in humid South Carolina and Texas, Foreman was called “Fuzzy” by her classmates. “My friends thought it was cute and funny,” Foreman recalls. “But for a young girl, it was crushing.”

    She dreaded rain and swimming and subjected her curls to the ravages of blow-dryers, hot rollers and chemicals. Nothing she tried could tame her mane. “The solution always seemed to be, ‘Cut it shorter,'” she said. “When I was 16 and on the dance team, I still looked like a boy.” 37, with three daughters of her own – including a 3-year-old curly head – Foreman hopes to help young curly heads of the world feel confident about their curls. To that end, she has launched the MopTop line of products – a sulfate-free, alcohol-free, silicone-free, wax-free line specifically designed for curly, frizzy hair.

    MopTop currently offers five products and recently introduced a new line of children’s hair care products called FuzzyDuck. The products moisturize and define dry, frizzy, unruly hair.

    The line pampers chemically treated and color-treated hair, too. A gentle clarifying shampoo and daily conditioner restores moisture. An herbal de-tangling spray reactivates even the frizziest hairstyle. A lightweight gel fights frizz without crunch, and pomade adds sheen while setting style.”We’ve been blessed with curly hair,” said Foreman. “I want adults and kids to embrace their blessing so they can be self-confident and happy with who they are.”

    Foreman, who has spent years working in sales, never envisioned that her curly hair would become the inspiration for her new career. She was 30 before she began to accept her curls. Looking at her damaged hair, her hairdresser encouraged her to wear her hair natural.

    Before creating her new line of curly hair products, she tried a wide range of products – from inexpensive drugstore brands to exclusive hair salon brands. She became a student of curly hair, reading everything she could on the subject. As she struggled to find the ideal combination for her curls, she began concocting product in her kitchen.

    One day, she called up a friend in the cosmetics industry and said, “Hey, I have a wild hair. Do you know anybody that could help me make some samples?” She then spent a year working on different formulas that would moisturize and de-frizz without building up on the hair.

    “For the first time in my life, I LOVE my curly hair and I am excited to have the opportunity to help others feel the same way,” she said.
