Earlier this month, the natural hair community suffered a tough loss with the unexpected death of Miss Jessie’s co-founder Titi Branch, who was 45-years-old.
Titi along with her sister, Miko, started their natural hair care line in 2004 with the mission to meet the needs of textured hair women. Named after their grandmother, the brand quickly expanded beyond its New York home-based market and into national retail chains such as Target, Wal-Mart and several other stores.
Following Titi’s untimely death, which was made public via an obituary published by NV Magazine, her sister has released a tribute video dedicated to the natural hair guru’s life. In a touching clip, Miko shares intimate family photos of her sister as Stevie Wonder’s hit song, As, plays in the background.
