ABOUT MANY ETHNICITIES
Work on the Many Ethnicities curl care product series began in 2014. It was then that Dr. Ena Hennegan, a mother, a board-certified, practicing family physician in suburban Chicago grew frustrated with a lack of healthy choices for caring for multi-textured hair, and resolved to create her own.
Dr. Ena believed then that there must be a healthier, smarter way to care for the beautiful, curly and multi-textured hair that many multicultural people are blessed to have. Today, she's helping people all over the world achieve incredible results through straightforward products and a focus on their personal health.
Dr. Ena had dealt with hair care issues herself for many years – on many fronts. She is a biracial woman who has waged four battles with hair: First her own and then one with each of her three daughters – each of whom has a different hair type and/or texture.
One winter night in 2013, during a vaunted, “Polar Vortex,” Dr. Ena looked along the outer edge of the family’s tub after bath time and counted more than 70 bottles of shampoo, conditioner and other hair products from the brands she had tried.
Each bottle had been purchased in the hope of improving upon the performance of the last. Each bottle offered some promise. Not a single one of them was just right.
And, upon closer inspection, she realized that some of the chemicals that were in these products were not far removed from household cleansers and automotive cleaning products.
It was at that moment Dr. Ena decided there had to be a different way to address this situation, because she knew she wasn’t alone.
Less than a year later, she was in the lab with her team of chemists, working on what would become the creation of Many Ethnicities, the first line of premium, natural-ingredient products designed specifically for people whose multi-textured hair formerly had been cared for with harsh chemicals and indecipherable synthetics.
She coupled that innovation with a straightforward, simple approach to ensuring that everyone's hair could be its best: The Health + Hydrate + Cleanse + Fortify + Style regimen.
Many Ethnicities products are designed to be safe, healthy, easy to use, and yet deliver optimal performance. Always manufactured to the highest standards in small batches.
It is through Many Ethnicities products that Dr. Ena combines her love for helping and caring for people with her passion for finding solutions to the unique personal care challenges faced by millions of people like her and her daughters each day.
