Getting Inclusive AF with Shalita Grant

Unleashing the Power of Type Four Hair: A Journey to Inclusive Beauty and Self-Expression

Join us for an empowering and informative episode of The Inclusive AF Podcast as we sit down with the incredible Shalita Grant to discuss all things inclusive hair care! ✨In this episode, Katee Van Horn and Jackye Clayton chat with Shalita Grant. Shalita, a Tony-nominated actress, made headlines when she courageously left a popular TV show due to her struggle with traction alopecia and hair damage, which affected her in front of millions of viewers.

Determined to find a solution, she developed a groundbreaking plant-based hair treatment addressing her complex type 4 hair issues. This led her to establish Four Naturals Hair in her dining room in Toluca Lake, California, in 2019, which has now expanded into a nationwide salon and home care treatment system. With its plant-based active ingredients, the Four Naturals Treatment has become a transformative solution for textured hair, allowing Shalita's characters to look their best.

In this episode, Shalita shares her personal journey as a black actress in Hollywood, shedding light on the challenges she faced and the damaging effects of constantly changing hairstyles for roles. Discover how she took matters into her own hands and, inspired by her own experiences, created the groundbreaking Four Naturals treatment to address the unique needs of type four hair.

We dive deep into the underrepresentation and understudy of type four hair, the erasure of its unique needs, and the damaging impact of societal standards. Shalita opens up about her trauma therapy journey, embracing her natural hair and finding beauty and movement in her unique tresses. Get ready to be inspired and empowered by her story!

Join us as we explore the intersection of race, hair, and Hollywood, and discover tangible tips and insights for embracing and caring for your own hair, regardless of texture. We cover it all, from haircare techniques rooted in science to the importance of inclusivity in the hairstyling industry!
