After one of our writers tried Dosso Beauty’s pre-stretched braiding hair, it changed her life. Since braiding hair was irritating her scalp, she almost gave up on braids altogether until she got her hands on Dosso’s braiding hair. In a review, they wrote:

I would tell anyone who’s weary of buying packs of hair that smell like plastic and then washing them free of skin-irritating chemicals to try Dosso Beauty pre-stretched braiding hair. Not only is the hair great quality and hypoallergenic, it’s a similar price to what you find at beauty supply stores. A single color pack is $4.99, ombre packs start at $5.99, and fancy tri-color shades are $6.99. But the most appealing of all of this is the fact that the line is owned by a Black woman. Dosso understands what we need in the hair that we use to execute some of our favorite styles with confidence, and chief among the characteristics is for the hair to not be toxic.
