Sad news this morning.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and loved ones of Titi Branch, who passed away in an apparent suicide on December 4 according to the Washington Post. Ms. Branch co-founded Miss Jessie’s along with her sister Miko, and the two helped revolutionize natural hair care. They made natural hair look fabulous; I remember looking at their ads and articles and wondering if my hair could look that great by itself. Their hair care line started in Brooklyn but now can be found on shelves nationwide at Target, Walgreens and Walmart, among other locations.

The circumstances regarding Miss Branch’s passing have not been reported. However, there are resources for those who have lost a loved one to suicide (or who may be contemplating it personally), including the Crisis Center’s Crisis Line locally or via the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK.
