Ultra Black Hair Products, Company
Ultra Black Hair Products (UBH) is a line of hair care products for afro-textured hair. The product line includes shampoo, creme moisturizer, spray moisturizer and deep conditioner. With the exception of the shampoo (that contains a light fragrance), the products are fragrance and paraben free and all are designed specifically to promote the strength and growth of black hair.
In the early 1980’s, Cathy Howse had an idea that would change the black hair care industry forever. The company initially started out as a book publishing company but evolved into manufacturing black hair products that the industry lacked. Over the years to meet the need of afro textured hair, the company has seen many changes in its business and its products. With change comes opportunity, and UBH has always been ready and willing to embrace it. Yet, through it all, UBH is still dedicated to those who want to understand the truth about black hair. UBH is privately held and based in Denver, Colorado.
