Natural Haircare Donations

ELPL is excited to collaborate once again with ELHS's Black Student Union for a Natural Haircare Drive!

From February 1 to March 1, 2024, we will be accepting donations of natural haircare products for afro-textured hair. A donation box will be set up next to the Teen Room to accept hair care donations. Items will then be donated to the library's community pantry in order to provide necessary haircare supplies for those who need them.

Suggested Donations

  • Shampoo and Conditioner (specifically for afro-textured hair)

  • Scalp Oils

  • Moisturizers

  • Deep/Leave-in Conditioner

  • Large Hair Ties

  • Durable hairbrushes/picks

  • Wide tooth combs

  • Rat Tail Combs

  • Silk and Satin Bonnets & Durags

Not sure what to donate? Look for the brands Carol's Daughter, Mielle, Shea Moisture, Camille Rose, Miss Jessie's, Aunt Jackie's, Alaffia, and As I am. These brands offer great products for natural hair types! If you have any questions about donating, please contact Rheanna Reeder at rreeder@cityofeastlansing.com.
