What We Do

Healthy Hair Matters Foundation is a nonprofit organization established to partner with families, schools, life coaches, and hairstylists to serve high school teen girls in Metro Detroit. We provide our girls with practical life skills training in order to help develop them personally and professionally. They also receive mentoring, volunteer opportunities, scholarships for college, and free hair care services.

Our Mission

Our mission is to teach life skills, help develop self-awareness, and empower teen girls in Metro Detroit.

Our Vision

We are passionate about helping girls become successful, confident, and empowered women who bring positive impact and change to their communities.

“While healthy hair is our passion, HHMF is even more passionate about the overall development and wellbeing of young ladies. We have developed a program to help aid in the process of goal setting, character development, and confidence building, during this important development period in young girls’ lives.” – Tracy A., Founder
