Monique Rodriguez

Founder of MIELLE Organics

Monique Rodriguez is the founder and CEO of Mielle Organics, a leading organic hair care brand.

Monique began by sharing her hair care routines on social media, which garnered significant attention and led to the creation of her first product in her kitchen. The brand quickly grew in popularity, known for its commitment to using natural and organic ingredients. Mielle Organics achieved a major milestone by partnering with Sally Beauty for retail distribution, and later, with Procter & Gamble in 2023, to expand accessibility.

Despite the challenges of navigating the beauty industry as a Black woman, Monique has remained steadfast in her mission, advocating for inclusivity and the elimination of colorism. Her story is one of resilience, faith, and an unwavering commitment to making a positive impact on her community.
