After total frustration with chemical treatment damage with my own hair, (dealing with split ends, stagnant growth, breakage, and severe heat tools styling damage for a long time), I made a decision to completely change the way I cared for myself. I embarked on a holistic journey. This journey prompted extensive research about the hair care, skin care, and cosmetic industry. I collected all the hair products in my bathroom, and searched the ingredients for side effects. What I found was horrific! The ingredients in these popular products were considered carcinogens, and could have permanent damaging effects not only to your hair, but to your health. I then started experimenting with homemade natural ingredients hair/facial homemade treatments. I was determined to find natural alternatives to damaging silicone derived conditioners, keratins that contained formaldehyde and lye containing relaxers. I refused to use chemical containing products for skincare, haircare, or cosmetics anymore.
After experimenting with natural ingredients such as: Pure manuka honey, pure aloe jelly, cacao extract, caviar extract, and pumpkin on my skin, I saw great results.
It then clicked, and my haircare epiphany happened. Why not try this on my hair?
I immediately noticed the difference. I continued to try different ingredients such as: Figs, Yucca extract, and even fermented rice water. I mixed all of these ingredients and reluctantly applied this mix to my hair. I noticed the difference immediately! Excited about the results, I then consulted a natural cosmetic chemist to balance out my formula. Viola, my hair was healing!
Most of the Natural Kerr star ingredients are commonly used in Dominican homemade haircare recipes.

After six months of faithfully using authentic Dominican natural hair treatments, it shows. My hair is healthy, full of luster, shine, and continues to grow. I thought, why not share it with the masses, as these hair issues are all too common. I then had others try our products and give us feedback. I was not surprised to learn that they felt the same way I did about their hair. They loved the results as well. This is how Natural Kerr was born.

The History behind the brand
The Dominican Republic is a gem in the caribbean. Hundreds of miles of coastline define the Dominican Republic (DR) – some of it white-sand beaches shaded by rows of palm trees, other parts lined by dramatic peaks and valleys. The multi-ethnic mix is reported to consist of 73% multi-racial, 16% percent white and 11% black. This is why our hair products work for everyone. We are a mix of different shades, hair textures, and ethnicities. A racial mix of indigenous, Spanish, Black and Europeans gives the Dominican Republic a colossal combination of hair textures. A perfect environment to create products that work for the masses.
