Our Founder & CEOWhitney Eaddy, commonly known as The Growth Guru, is a celebrity natural hair growth & care expert. At Whitney's core she is a Healer with an intentional mission to empower women and help them towards restoration of their truest-selves. With over 16 years of experience in natural hair, Whitney is internationally known for "Her Growing Hands" as the ultimate afro-whisperer, credited for assisting her clients in growing their natural hair to great lengths. Her intrinsic purpose is to reverse the narrative society has created regarding Black women and their afro-textures. She has cared for thousands of clients, coaching them through their healthy, natural hair care and growth journey. Whitney’s own personal hair care journey began with chemical relaxers at the young age of two and took a significant turn at age 19 when she had a revelation that Black women, herself included, were at large damaging the integrity of their curls, kinks, and coils - all to adhere to century-old fallacies that European standards defined beauty. From that turning point forward, she disregarded that indoctrination and set out on her crusade towards inspiring women of all textures to embrace their natural hair. Whitney’s unique understanding of healthy hair and her ability to grow all afro-textures is purely self-taught. Her undeniable "Her Growing Hands" methodologies continue to show radical results, which have intensified the demand for her gifts and knowledge all over the world, in celebrity and en-masse clients alike.
Beyond Whitney’s passion and experience in hair care, she is also HBCU-educated with a diverse professional background. Whitney studied Public Relations and Marketing at Hampton University, garnered experience in corporate recruiting & sales, and operated her own independent makeup artistry and photography company. Comprehensively, these varied experiences have curated the brilliant entrepreneurial-mindset that Whitney possesses today and ultimately culminated in Whitney's five businesses all branded under The Growth Guru. Though hair growth serves as a catapult for Whitney, her overarching mission is to cultivate growth in areas far beyond hair. Her platform is healthy hair, but her ministry is rooted in self-love and empowerment.
About Her Growing Hands
After prompting from the hundreds of clients she helped reach great lengths of healthy natural hair and perfecting the art of the "Silk Press" on natural hair while maintaining the integrity of her clients' natural curls, The Growth Guru opened Her Growing Hands in 2016 as her answer to a salon concept. Whitney personally trained six Natural Hair Care and Growth Specialists in the Her Growing Hands methodologies and they now provide excellent service and client education at Her Growing Hands, which is regularly booked to capacity with clients, who sometimes travel even internationally for an appointment. Her Growing Hands Salon has two locations: Frisco, TX and Dallas, TX. Visit the Her Growing Hands website.
