How Breezy Tee™ Was Born


What happens when an English-teaching, natural-hair-loving New Yorker and her Portuguese designer/art director husband (bump fists) and mix their creative juices? You get the brand Breezy Tee™, where you’ll find a collection of T-shirt Hair Towel Wraps, Satin Lined Beanies, Headbands and other products that stylishly protect hair from damage.

In an effort to become more sustainable, we've introduced silk and linen hair accessories. These are not only two of the healthiest fabrics for hair, but also for the planet.

Loved by women all around the world, Breezy Tee™ has been featured in various publications including The Huff Post, Teen Vogue, Essence, Stylecaster, Shape, Independant, The Glitter Guide, Afrobella, 4C Hair Chicks and more.

Now that you know who we are today, here's a little story of how my hair troubles led to the birth of Breezy Tee …

After a lifetime of relaxing my hair, I finally took the leap and did the BIG Chop (cut all my hair off) years ago. Going natural meant relearning everything I thought I knew about my hair … and FAST.

One of the things I discovered was my terry cloth towels were damaging my natural hair right before my eyes. How?

Glad you asked.

The rough terry cloth fabric was causing frizz, dryness and breakage. Even worse, it was sucking the moisture in my natural curls that were desperately trying to peek through after decades of relaxing.

And that’s when it happened.

I said goodbye to Terry cloth towels and hello to not-so-old t-shirts. While washing my hair one day, I finally had my own Oprah “aha!” moment. You see, I had been scouring the house for shirts to sacrifice when I decided to use the jersey material to create a chic and healthy towel AND have it double as a head wrap. Genius!

After testing out various fabrics, we settled on absorbent, fashionable, 100% cotton fabric, for many of our products, that tackles frizz, moisture retention and breakage. Because I’m not just the Breezy Tee president, but also a client, you can trust you’re getting products that are “curly, kinky and coily-hair approved.” They are also suitable for other hair types.
