In 2000, Miko Branch and her sister, Titi, launched a natural hair care brand from their kitchen table in Brooklyn. They named their creamy concoctions for curls Miss Jessie’s Original, after their grandmother, a Southern Black matriarch who taught them all about hair care and family. More than 20 years later, Miss Jessie’s natural hair products are a staple in the regimens of many Black women around the globe. Even after the death of her sister, Miko Branch continues to carry the legacy of the family business and is helping millions of women own their beauty from the inside out.
