    Urban Hydration’s Breath of Fresh Hair Kids

    Urban Hydration’s Breath of Fresh Hair Kids aims to change how parents care for their children’s tresses and is debuting in Walmart stores nationwide. 

    Products part of the line include a Co-Wash and Conditioner, Detangler and Leave-In Conditioner and Styling Lotion, which feature a formula that is free of parabens and uses such plant-based ingredients as vanilla extract, avocado oil and honey, the brand said. 

    “It's been a journey working with Walmart. I’ll never forget one of my first meetings, 10+ years ago, driving to Bentonville with my newborn baby in the backseat. That baby is nearly 13 years old and now has 2 more siblings. When it comes to making care that is tangle-free and lavender fresh we’ve got it figured out and couldn’t be more excited to represent small Black Owned Businesses that are growing at Walmart,” said Psyche Terry, CEO of Urban Hydration and Breath of Fresh Hair. 

    In addition, Urban Hydration also shared that its Honey collection products also will be making waves on Walmart shelves.

    BelliWelli’s retail distribution is continuing to grow, this time with Target.

    The brand recently shared that its chocolate chip and crunchy peanut butter chocolate bars would be available for purchase at the retailer, as well as online.

    “Throughout my struggles with IBS, I noticed a scarcity of products that truly emphasized the benefits associated with maintaining a healthy gut,” said Katie Wilson, co-founder and CEO of BelliWelli. “The snack aisle was crowded with high protein, low-sugar and keto… but nothing that was designed specifically for those with digestive issues in mind — until BelliWelli. My goal is to offer a practical solution that is accessible and appeals to the masses, yet doesn’t make people sacrifice certain aspects of their lives.”

    News of this partnership comes on the heels of BelliWelli sharing that its products could be found at Sprouts, H-E-B, Kings, Fresh Thyme and Hungry Root among others.
