Products

Do you test on animals?

Never! And we don't think other beauty companies should either!

Are your products vegan?

They are! Our haircare products are plant-based vegan, even the proteins we use are plant-based.

Are your products sulfate free?

Absolutely. We stay away from sulfates as they are harsh and synthetics used to breakdown dirt. Instead, we use natural ingredients that break down dirt without stripping away your natural oils.

Are your products color safe?

They sure are. Our products are formulated to support your hair however you wish to style it.

Are your products gluten-free?

Just like our founders’ diet, our products are gluten-free.

Are your products fragrance free?

Our products are fragrance free, meaning we do not include artificial fragrances or chemicals masking as “fragrance.” However, our products do have scents from essential oils and the other natural ingredients in our formulas.

Are your products protein free?

Our Plant Power mask and Curl Elixir primer spray are the only products that contain vegan plant-based protein. Because it’s vegan plant-based, it’s much milder and does not over proteinize the hair. We have customers with protein sensitivities that do not have issues with our products. 

Do your products contain silicone?

No way. Silicones are petroleum-derived polymers that create buildup and clog the pores on your scalp, preventing your hair from absorbing nutrients and moisture. We use natural ingredients that will have your fingers and comb brush right through your hair. Trust when we say, you won’t be missing silicone anytime soon.

Do your products contain nuts?

A number of our products contain Coconut Oil and Shea Butter. We also use other oils derived from nuts and seeds found in fruit throughout West Africa and South America. If you have allergies to tree nuts, be sure to read the ingredient lists carefully and consult with your physician prior to use if you have any questions. You can always reach out to our customer service team with specific questions as well!

Are your products safe for children?

Hannah Diop created Sienna Naturals with herself and family in mind. While not formally tested on babies and children, she has been using these products on her little ones since they were babies. We have many customers who use Sienna Naturals for their entire household. 

Can men use these products?

Our products are unisex and universal!

My Daily Elixir and Lock & Seal isn't filled to the top. Is it missing oil?

Unless your bottle leaked while in transit, it is not missing any product. Legally, our manufacturer has to fill to the oz listed on the bottle and that fill is to the 3oz mark. We fill our bottles to that spot and purposely leave space. When we were doing shipping testing we had some leakage occurring on a few items. We found to help with that, besides tape, is to get a bottle that is bigger than our fill so the formulation has room to expand as it moves through different elevations in shipping and being bounced around.

My Daily Elixir has white fragments floating in it. Is the product safe to use?

Yes! Those fragments are raw, unrefined coconut oil in its solid form. Raw unrefined coconut oil begins to solidify once it gets below 76˚. This becomes a lot more noticeable during the cold winter months. Shake and rattle the bottle, letting it warm up in your hand. The oil will begin to liquify and you're good to go.

Company

Is Sienna Naturals Black-owned?

Sienna Naturals is Black woman-owned, to be exact. Hannah Diop founded Sienna Naturals in 2012 in her apartment in Harlem, New York. After attempting to formulate the products herself, she was introduced to a chemist, another Black woman, who would formulate in Hannah’s kitchen every weekend. Today Hannah and Issa Rae co-own Sienna Naturals. What’s better than one Black owner? Two!

Where is Sienna Naturals based?

While founded in Harlem, New York, Sienna Naturals operates out of Los Angeles, California. 

What makes Sienna Naturals different from other textured hair care brands?

Our mission from the start has been to offer clean products that actually work for textured hair, packed full of ingredients scientifically proven to improve hair and scalp health. Sienna Naturals is not only a hair care brand, but a wellness company. We are dedicated to creating and nurturing clean products for textured hair by people with textured hair.

What hair type is Sienna Naturals meant for?

Sienna Naturals was specifically and intentionally made for people with textured hair. Since our products are formulated for an array or hair concerns, our customers’ hair types hit everything on the spectrum from super fine, fragile hair with the tightest kinks and coils to super thick, non-porous and porous strands.

What does being a clean company mean?

It means using ingredients that do not cause harm to the body or to the environment. Our products are always free of SLS, SLES, parabens, silicones, artificial fragrances, or dyes. Our ingredients are responsibly sourced, plant-based, and cruelty free. We also operate with Environmental Working Group standards.

Where are Sienna Naturals products made?

Sienna Naturals products are formulated, developed, and produced in the USA.

Will I receive points for my previous purchases? 

No, unfortunately points are not retroactive to purchases made prior to launch 

Do my points expire? 

Points expire after 1 year of inactivity. In this context, inactivity refers to customers who have not taken any actions to earn or redeem any points within the selected time frame.

Does my tier status expire?

Your tier status will reset each rolling year. A twelve month timer is activated once you achieve a tier. For example, a customer who crossed the tier entry threshold on July 1, 2020 will retain that tier until July 1, 2021 (assuming all other requirements are met).

Do I need to make a minimum purchase to use my points?

You do not! Points can be redeemed in $10 increments towards any purchase! 

Can I use a reward and a promo code on the same order?

Rewards and promo codes cannot be used on the same order at this time. Our website does not support more than code input on a singular order at checkout.

I referred a friend but didn't get the reward. Why not?

Your friend must use their valid referral link, self-referrals are not allowed (the IP address/User agent must not be mismatched), your friend must make a minimum purchase of $70, this must be the friend's first purchase, and on-site pop ups must be enabled in browser.

Can I redeem my points at Target, Nordstrom, or Revolve?

Points and rewards are exclusive to siennanaturals.com!

I ordered from Target, Nordstrom, or Revolve, can you give me points for that purchase?

Points and rewards are exclusive to siennanaturals.com which means we can not honor orders from other retailers.
