Her Story

How often do you feel empowered? I'm Lakisha Bullock Licensed Cosmetologist, Herbalist & Skincare Specialist at a young age I felt empowered to have my own hair and skin product line!

I was born and raised in Philly, growing up with so little makes me strive for so much more now. What prompted me to want to make these products was the fact that I was bullied and beat up as a kid because of how my hair looked and how I dressed. I had to learn how to fix my hair and dress better, so I started practicing braiding my hair and learning about skincare. I started experimenting, I used to make products with household items like honey, yogurt and mayonnaise. I then started doing my sisters and other people in the neighborhood's hair. It was my way of making money to buy clothes and shoes. It made me feel empowered to be able to look better, feel better and make my own money at such a young age. 

At some point I came across Lisa from Carol's Daughter and admired her for a long time. I told myself if she could start her brand in her kitchen, I could do the same. When I first started using her products, they were awesome, and I was immediately impressed! I loved the way they naturally smelled and made my skin feel. I remember making this Shea Butter with oil mix and putting dry orange peels and essential oils in it. My sister called me and told me how it cleared her skin up. I was so shocked, but extremely motivated to go harder. I knew it was time to really get the ball rolling. However, it took me going through this next rough patch in my life to get started.

Years later I had been going through some really ruff and stressful times. I had lost my job 3 years in a row right before the holidays and I was in a very stressful relationship. I felt lost, I had just had my son and then I developed a serious eczema condition and had also dealt with alopecia and nothing was controlling the eczema. I had to get scalp injections for my hair to grow back. I felt ugly, my skin was horrible and my hair was a mess. I felt like I was that kid being bullied all over again. I had to do something about this. One of my goals was to feel empowered again! 

S C B stands for She Creates Beauty starting SCB Naturals was a very challenging task. I decided I was up for that challenge and began to do the work. Once I started it became my reality and I felt empowered to keep going!

When you have great skin and hair it's totally empowering, you feel good!  My biggest task was to create products to help with my eczema condition. It was then I realized I had a gift that I had to share. I knew at that moment my dream was not too big! After countless hours of research & education SCB Naturals was created in 2015. Support a woman in business. Be empowered with me!
