Morgan Tully knows hair. She spent 18 years as an in-demand stylist and used her experience and insight to launch one of the coolest new haircare experiences: THIC.
A brand after our own female-founded hearts, THIC focuses on hair health and embracing natural texture. Their products are 100% vegan and cruelty-free and contain no toxic ingredients.
Our collaboration with them felt like a match made in heaven. Read on for Morgan’s surprising trick for perfect summer hair, and much more!
1. You’re a celebrated hair stylist. What helped you find the confidence to take the leap to create your own haircare brand?
After working for almost two decades with clients, I knew there was a gap in the market for the kind of product and brand that I wanted to build. I had a lot of support from my clients and enough market research to really test it out and figure out what would work best.
2. Once you had the idea for your brand, how did you mobilize it?
Honestly, one step at a time. Strategy and research helped to lay the groundwork but it was my many years of building strong relationships with other industry leaders, influencers and entrepreneurs that really streamlined the success of the brand.
3. What's something you purchased from a small business recently that you love?
I’ve been wearing a necklace from ARMED Jewelry for about 8 months that I absolutely love and haven’t taken off. It is a female-founded Toronto Jewelry store that hand-makes the most beautiful staple gold and silver pieces. I love supporting other female entrepreneurs, we have to stick together and support each other!
4. What is the best skincare tip you’ve ever received?
Not to over-cleanse! My skin is way better when I allow the natural oils to do their magic. I make sure to really cleanse and do my routine at night, but in the morning I just do a light wash and prep for the day. Oh, and sunscreen obviously.
5. We can’t wait to use our THIC combs to detangle beachy hair this summer. What are some of your tips for a summer haircare routine?
Make sure to add moisture to your hair and let it air dry! Give your hair the break it needs from the hot tools during the summer and allow your natural wave to come back. The best way to do this is to apply a few drops of the THIC Daily Hair Perfecting Oil and let your hair be its best self.
