Myavana is a hair care recommendation system for women who look like you. The app provides product recommendations, analysis just for your hair and styling techniques catered to specific hair types and textures. Myavana uses a combination of artificial intelligence and haircare experts to instantly provide customized “Hair Recipes.” The co-founders are four Black women: Candace Mitchell, Jessica Watson, Chanel Martin, and Joy Boulamwini. They understand the struggle and created an app to help navigate women everywhere to the “hair goals” promised land.
Myavana allows users to create a profile by downloading the app, taking a selfie and sharing your “HAIR PEACE” goals. From there, users will get a customized recipe for their hair with products, ingredients, and regimens provided by industry leading experts. The app’s “Hair Recipes” use patented technology to recommend the best hair products and hair regimes to ensure you always have good hair days. The app goes even further, providing users with the community, content and customer care they need to maintain optimal results. The use of technology and community to tackle everyday hair issues is a winning combination, for sure, but there’s more.
“Myavana encourages women to form communities based on hair texture, desired hairstyles, or geography. Users can upload hairstyles, share beauty tips (including information about styling products and preferred salons), and styling techniques. Users can follow desired hairstyles by “Girlfriending” users who post images with that style. Each time a user accepts a Girlfriend request, the community can follow that user’s hair journey and learn her secrets to hair nirvana. Myavana supports its communities with tools that will best fit the user’s lifestyle and hair needs including access to the best bloggers, youtubers, shampoos, conditioners and stylists. Chief Beauty Officer Chanel Martin notes, “We understand that that in order to get that perfect style, you need the right products. Myavana is the place to get up to date styles and product information to ensure that everyday is a good hair day!”‘-Myavana
