Nationwide  Meet Zhanyia McCullough, founder and CEO of Islande Beauty, a Black-owned, plant-based company committed to the empowerment of girls through education and healthy hair care. Despite being only 14-years old and still in high school, Zhanyia has managed to launch the first product from her company's Pracaxi Oil and Kalahari Melon Collection, a hair growth oil for girls with kinky, curly hair.

This hair growth oil helps to improve the circulation in the scalp as well as seal in moisture and shine. What makes this oil amazing is that its multi-use. The oil can be used as a pre-poo, daily oil, hot oil treatment, scalp treatment, blow-dry oil (mild heat protectant), finishing oil, and scalp massage oil.

Islande Beauty comes during a time when the “natural hair movement” is all the talk. Studies have shown that how girls feel about their hair has a direct effect on their self-esteem. The lack of self-esteem has lifelong consequences. Girls who learn how to embrace their natural hair and enjoy the journey to healthy hair growth have positive self-confidence in other areas. The creation of this hair growth oil will accomplish three principles, the benefits of using natural ingredients on kinky, curly hair, the importance of creating a healthy hair care regimen, and most importantly inspiring girls to rock their natural hair and “own their beauty”.

Article On Islande Beauty Continues Below...

The inspiration to make the hair growth oil started because Zhanyia hair wasn't growing at a comfortable rate. During this time, Zhanyia struggled with self-esteem, self-acceptance, and self-confidence, and wanted to create something to support her hair growth problems and also support other girls who may be suffering in silence. As with many teenage girls, their appearance is everything and I wanted to come up with a solution.

The name Islande Beauty embodies the true essence of confidence. Islande Beauty’s mission is to create an environment to help individuals build their confidence by creating a space for people to easily access information on hair products containing natural ingredients. Islande Beauty’s vision is to empower girls to feel confident in their abilities, to take care of their hair, and to be leaders in their communities. It's all about finding inner beauty, building confidence, and creating healthy self-esteem.

About the CEO

Zhanyia is not only the CEO of Islande Beauty, but she is also an honor student and a member of her high school cheerleading team, and a member of a national award-winning travel dance team. Her goal is to create a STEM-based curriculum with her mom who has 15 years of experience in the educational field.

Zhanyia says that she wants to teach girls that STEM subjects can be fun when it linked to something that they are already interested in, beauty.

Her company, Islande Beauty, is a brand that is formulated by a kid, but not just for kids. To learn more and/or to make a purchase, visit
