Revisiting the Legacy of Madame CJ Walker

For people who know me well, I'm a huge long time fan of Madame CJ Walker.

Madame Walker is on record as America's first self made female millionaire.

I have a long term fascination with Madame Walker because to just say she became a millionaire in the early 1900s would not tell her full story.

The full story is she accomplished this feat in the midst of every obstacle you can imagine! Poverty, abuse, unstable home name it and Madame Walker had to overcome it.

So it was my pleasure to see that her namesake brand is getting revived by the brand that's also behind the popular Shea Moisture, Sundial Brands.

You'll be reading more posts here as they continue to roll out products that we are all hoping continues on the legacy of such an illustrious and hard working woman.

If you want to try a Madame CJ Walker product, they are available exclusively at Sephora.

The model below used Jamaican Black Castor and Murumuru Oils to get this carefree look!

And FYI, her lip gloss (which I love) is Givenchy Le Rose Revelateur.
