The natural hair world was shaken when we heard the news that Titi Branch, one of the early exemplary entrepreneurs who made kinky hair look fabulous, had passed away at such a young age. The 45 year old woman behind Miss Jessie seemed to have everything going for her. Friends who adored her, a flourishing million dollar business, a loving family and a boyfriend who seemed to love her. So what would drive such a beautiful woman into a depression so deep that she would take her own life a couple of weeks before Christmas?
A pioneer in the Natural Hair Care business has sadly left us: Titi Branch. Even if you haven’t met or knew her personally it’s very likely that many of you have seen her somewhere brightly smiling with her sister Kiki showing off their perfect curls in an ad for Miss Jessie’s.
