Today we’d like to introduce you to Morgan Kelly.
Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
After giving birth to my beautiful baby girl named Adalynn Olivia in 2019, I discovered that she was suffering from hair loss. Olivia’s hair would grow, then quickly fall out. Although money was tight, raising two children by myself, I knew that I had to find a way to help my daughter by any means.
After saving up my money little by little, I invested into many ingredients and read books about hair. After first trying several over the counter products and with none of them working, I soon begin to experiment with natural herbs, vitamins, plant and fruit-based products and after a lot of trial and error, the first product was born Olivia’s Nectar Growth Oil.
After using the growth oil on Olivia’s hair for a few weeks, there was a sufficient improvement and hair gain. Not only was her hair growing back, but it was thicker too! I knew there was something special about her growth oil and wanted to share it with others going through the same issues. Soon after others began to see the same results, I was inspired to create a whole line of products that included organically grown ingredients.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Oh no, This journey has been beautiful, but it has been nothing but bumps in the road. It started off really rough because I had no help figuring out the formulas, the business side of things, or just someone there to tell me to keep going during those stressful long nights. Some struggles I have ran into was mostly the money side of things to start the business. Being a single mother of two, my money is closely watched lol, so going into this business, I’ve had to think of some creative ways to get more funding for the business, like taking on another job, overtime or offering my services to help others.
Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about Olivias Nectar?
Olivia’s Nectar is a Luxury Line for Curly Natural Hair and Thin Hair, and Transitioning Hair. We cater to Coarse, Curly, and Straight textures and also Thin and Damaged Hair. Our products are weightless and we focus the regrowth and strengthening of your hair. Olivia’s Nectar products are filled with Essential Oils, Natural Butters, Vitamins, Plant and Fruit Extracts, and other natural ingredients to repair damaged hair and hydrate dry hair. We are also Vegan and Cruelty-free. Our main goal is repair, replenish, and restore damaged hair cuticles and most importantly the scalp.
Most recently, we just launched a New Collection that is very special to me because the brand just went though a re-branding stage. We upgraded the bottles and made the ingredients even better. I am very proud of this collection because it is my goal to inspire women especially African American women to feel luxurious while doing their natural hair. My dream is for this collection be in the stores of Neiman Marcus, Sephora, and Ulta soon! If so it will be the first Upscale Luxury Black-owned brand.
Have you learned any interesting or important lessons due to the Covid-19 Crisis?
Yes, due to Covid-19 it pushed me to really find better ways to connect more with my following and supporters. It’s important for me to always update them and engage everyday. Being able to still connect and get deep over the internet is amazing.
