Supporting black-owned businesses is a great way to commemorate Black History Month. In Tallahassee, there are more than 50 black-owned enterprises. From food to apparel to beauty, there’s something for everyone.

If you want to improve your natural hair and appearance, China’s Exotic Essentials LLC is the way to go. Rice water-infused shampoo and conditioner, rice water hair treatment, and exotic hair growth oil are among the products offered. Their entire line of products is developed with natural and organic components that promote healthy hair development.

The rice water-infused shampoo and conditioner are the perfect addition to any wash day routine. Both products gently cleanse and condition dry and dirty hair without stripping away any of its natural oils. These products contain a variety of nutrients, including Vitamins B, C, and E, all of which contribute to healthy hair growth.

The rice water hair growth treatment is one of their most popular products. The nutrients in the rice water encourage healthy thick hair development, boost hair volume, and relieve irritated dry scalps with a refreshing sensation. The exotic growth serum is made of 100% natural and organic oils and herbs.

This product has also been proven to promote faster hair growth. These products can be purchased on www.chinasexoticessentials.online/.

Do you want to support a good cause? Head over to Sneauxballs and order a dessert from their extensive menu.
Sneauxballs began as a fundraiser for a youth development program in an apartment building and has since grown into a flourishing establishment. Sneauxballs have finer ice than traditional snow cones.

Jmo, Queen of Hearts, Ace, and Love are some of the most popular flavors among customers. All of these sweets are filled with cheesecakes and flavored syrups on ice, with some topped with their creole cream.

Sneauxballs, according to www.wtxl.com, has been able to mentor youth on how to start their own businesses as well as organize “give back days” where the community can receive free snowballs. You can find and support Sneauxballs at 2033 S Adams St, Tallahassee.

Come on down to Island OMG Seafood for succulent crabs, perfectly seasoned shrimp, garlic dipping sauce that melts in your mouth, or whatever your heart desires.

This is John Lee’s family’s second business, which is run by his wife, four children, and two cousins. Their initial establishment is in Thomasville, where it is known and loved for its conch dishes such as fried conch and conch salad. Unlike the Thomasville location, the Tallahassee location seats 200 people and offers a diverse selection of alcoholic beverages.

Giant snow crab legs, lobster tails, blue crabs, and their signature garlic butter and fried food sauce are also popular. This family business can be found at 1019 N Monroe St, Tallahassee.
