Earlier this year the brand raised $8,000 via Kickstarter. Unfortunately, they did not meet their minimum goal of $25,000 in order to make the hair unbraiding tool available for sale. With kickstarter's all or nothing rule in play, they saw not 1 cent. But it's not all bad news, the tool was featured in ESSENCE mag twice. Got a lot of buzz on @OfficialBlackWallStreet, and was featured on 3 different podcasts: OnSheGoes, Style & Vibes, Claima Stories.
Saraa, the Co-Founder & CEO of THEBRAIDRELEASER is not slowing down!
