A Note From Our Founder

I've traveled to 14 countries, taken 6000+ photos and only a handful with me in them. Why? Besides wanting to take photos of the local culture and breathtaking views... I pretty much travel on a permanent bad hair day. But on a recent trip to Japan, as I realized there was no venturing into a store for hair pomade, it occurred to me that I can't be the only one out in these streets longing for a little shea butter goodness so I could take some dope #blacktravel photos even on a rainy day in Kyoto. So hot mess and all I decided to be the change that I sought... namely, creating The Black Travel Box. We're a company that believes no foreign lands, desert sands, beachy waves, or mountain summits should be deprived of your beauty - inside and out. So we make hair and body care products to make you look and feel your best on vacation. And even if your travels take you closer to home, like the gym or an out of town client meeting, we've got you covered.
