Chyresse Johnson — better known as Rece — created her brand Rece Remedies in 2017.
Johnson said she always had a thing for hair when she was growing up but after attending cosmetology school twice, she realized she had more interest in proper hair care maintenance than styling it. Starting a natural hair care brand was a way for her to invest in her love of hair care and provide alternative solutions to commonly faced problems in hair care and growth.
Rece Remedies products are 100% handmade with a special blend of all natural herbs, oil and love, according to her website. Her hair care line features a range of organic products from oil shampoo bars, hair butter and curl mousse, to hair, skin and nail vitamins, as well as a specially curated hair growth starter kit. Her products are designed for all hair types, with no chemicals or preservatives and are even kid-friendly.
“It’s hard finding a good natural product that actually helps the hair instead of damaging it,” Johnson told IMBM. “I wanted to provide a healthy, clean hair care line for the women who have trouble embracing their natural hair and keeping it healthy.”
In addition to hair care products, Rece Remedies also includes hair care tips for each of the products on its website and social media platforms — such as tutorials and maintenance tips on TikTok and YouTube.
Rece Remedies is currently operating as an online business and pop-up shop. Products can be purchased on the company’s website or at festivals and pop-ups around the city.
