My name is Leslie White, Im 31 years old originally from White Plains, NY (a suburb of NYC) now living in Gainesville, FL. Graduate of Binghamton University with a degree in Biochemistry. I am a science teacher and now owner and founder of Morning Dew Hair Products Inc.
What inspired you to create this product line? Who is the product geared towards?
Honestly, I NEVER wanted to run a business the thought was unappealing. God gave me this idea and I didnt think I would love it as much as I do but its GREAT. One day he just put it in my spirit and I just stepped and started the journey. I have a lot to learn but the road is fun! My product is geared toward anyone with textured hair and that can range from a curly headed Caucasian to a kinky head Nubian, if it curls we are talking to you!
Why are you natural?
I went natural because I was tired of perms.Its that simple.I would get a perm, and it would puff up within seconds, I could never keep a style long. Also my hair was not healthy like I knew it could be, my hair was very long as a child and thick, I know its potential and I wanted it back.
How long have you been natural?
I have been natural for 5.5 years. I did the big chop in February 2006.
What is unique about your products?
They are unique because I made them. They come from a mind of a biochemist so I look at things differently….I research from a scientist’s mind and looking at the structure of each ingredient in reference to the hair…I actually understand pH and straight chain fatty acids…so it makes putting together formulations a bit different from the average hair care team. I dont need to hire any scientists…since I am one myself.
Going to school at Binghamton University was it difficult to maintain a natural hair care regimen? What should other natural college students know?
I wasn’t natural during my years in Bingo. My hair was difficult to maintain though, Ive never trusted too many people in my head so I wore braids and twists a lot. I began to transition my senior year before I left Binghamton.
