NO SKIN BLEACHING HERE!

I am very sorry to have to interrupt anyone’s holiday spirit with this message, but I cannot wait until the New Year to say it: KYRA’S SHEA MEDLEYS DOES NOT AND WILL NEVER SELL SKIN BLEACHING PRODUCTS OR ANY PRODUCT THAT PROMOTES THE OPPOSITE OF YOUR OWN NATURAL BEAUTY OF EITHER YOUR HAIR OR SKIN. WE WILL NEVER, EVER, EVER SELL BULLSHIT LIKE THAT. (Yes, I just cursed, and I am not sorry about it!) “We got the message Kyra, but what made you say this?” Thanks for asking!

We are angry...but we plan to do something about it! We do not normally post about subjects like this, but as a Black-owned and woman-owned company, we refuse to sit around and be silent about the realities we face as women of color.
