Hi! My name is Brigette Dean, once Brigette Davidovici before I was married or knew how to care for my frizzy hair. That’s me, with a six year hair journey, which is still growing and changing! It is also the beginning of how I started brewing Witch i Love Your Hair in my kitchen for myself, out of necessity.
I wanted to know how to care for my hair, but I had years of a painful relationship with my hair. I lived and pursued acting in Hollywood in my early 20s, and that deeply worsened my self-esteem and self-image. I knew that befriending my hair, knowing how to truly love and moisturize it, would help me be more at ease with myself. I didn’t know where to start, but I did know about certain ingredients known for hair and scalp health, and began researching more into it.
I always loved the ideas of witchy women, connected to the moon and nature, being impossibly powerful. My Romanian and Greek family+ beauty traditions that I saw throughout my life inspired me, and I had always loved old books on everything from Greek and Roman mythology, to ritual, to lore. I would see ingredients and even ways of caring for our hair discussed about ancient queens, warrior priestesses, goddesses, and with all kinds of legend around it. I figured if it was good enough for Aphrodite, I probably would love it too! So many different flowers offer incredible oils for us, and were revered for a long time as gifts from the Earth. The best part was that mixing all these essential oils together for my hair concoction, refining the recipe, felt magical and exciting. Adding in Quartz Crystals was an even more magical step, and it allowed for a perfect mix of the ingredients inside. The crystals acted like a physical agitator in the bottle to mix everything together, so no harsh dilution chemicals were needed.
I realized something special was happening when this mixture made my hair SO INCREDIBLY HAPPY. The mixture was so lightweight (there are no heavy creams, silicones, or shea butter like many moisturizing hair products have), but this Hair Magic I had made was so nourishing!
I bottled up little versions of the potion for all my close friends whenever they would ask, until eventually I saw that this Magic worked for everyone. Everyone in my life, with all different types of hair, even my husband’s beard, they all benefited from this pure, lightweight mixture. And I was making a lot of bottles!
I created the first official bottle and this website/virtual shop at the urging of my husband and our obsession with watching Shark Tank, and I feel so grateful to see how many people have enjoyed the Magic with us now! What started off as just me, by myself making Magic and shipping it in my living room, has grown into my family’s whole world! Our Magic company is now run by myself and my husband, Zack full time, and our 2 dog children. We even got to eventually meet the Shark Tank casting team for our Magic, but ended up getting to expand on our own! We relocated to Asheville, and expanded our business and witchyfam to a local manufacturer here — where an entire team of awesome humans helps us create more Magic than I ever could by hand alone! We have even had more Magical product babies, with our Face Magic and our Body Magic.
This witchyfam has become one of the biggest blessings in our life, with everyone who is a part of it - including you, if you’re reading this!! Thank you! You are being virtually hugged.
I want every human being to feel great in their healthy hair, their skin, and themselves. I want every one of us to walk around with a smile on our face out of the happiness we feel to simply inhabite our bodies. We care about your hair, but also your nervous system, your life, and you. We create music for you to enjoy, called Zackground Tracks - on Spotify, iTunes, and our Youtube channel! We create these instrumental songs so you can turn your life into a music video, and make your Magic happen! No words or messages to influence your creativity and thoughts, just a moving source of music energy to flow your life and work to! We truly just want to share all the things we love with you - Magic, family, a lot of sleeping dog pictures, happy hair and skin, way too loud drums, all the music, astrology, what the F the moon is doing today, funny Office quotes, and ALLLLLLL the existential thoughts. We are just happy to have met you and have you be a part of this magical space with us.
If you would like to join the WitchyFam, we welcome you with open arms and dogs. Give our Magic a try, and let me know what you think! Post any pictures to your Instagram (#witchiloveyourhair) and then we get to see you and connect with you even more!
May all beings everywhere have happy, healthy hair and lives <3
