About Shelly

Flower dress pic.jpg

Hi, I'm Shelly Faison, creator and owner of Shelly's Nourish Hair Products- a Black owned company. I'm a former Ebony Fashion Fair model, children's book illustrator and award winning floral designer.


Shelly's Nourish currently consists of two powerhouse products: Hair Drink, a creamy moisturizer, and Hair Balm, a light as air, oil based balm. These two products work together to provide your hair with optimum hydration. A liquid oil product is launching soon.


You see, our hair grows at the same rate as other races- about 1/2 inch per month. Because our hair curls in varying degrees, our natural scalp oils do not travel as easily from the roots to the tips of our hair. This can cause fragility and breakage. So, it only LOOKS like our hair is not growing. Properly hydrated hair doesn't break easily and can grow longer than you might think!

I never had long hair as a child. I came up with my own formula because I needed the highest quality moisturizer and oil, and I wanted to grow longer hair. I too believed that it was a struggle to grow long afro-textured hair. I couldn't find a product containing high quality ingredients that penetrate and strengthen the hair shaft from the inside out.


The photos on the right show my journey from thin, broken, badly damaged hair to longer, healthier hair in my, ahem, mature years. Bad selfies never lie!

Friends and family began to ask me to make Shelly's Nourish for them, and the word spread. Let me help you on your journey to healthier hair. We're all in this together.

I would describe my hair type as 3C-4A. My hair is currently texlaxed. I apply a gentle relaxer myself 3 times a year.

I have a passion for helping African American women and men achieve optimum hair health and growth. Whether natural or relaxed, Shelly's Nourish can help you get there.
