Owner Amoakowa Antwi, originally from Ghana, West Africa, came up with the concept of Radiant Locks at the age of 13 when she moved to the United States and her mother was diagnosed with an illness. Unable to do her own hair, her mother was forced to spend money on cheap wigs.
It wasn’t until Amoakowa joined the Armed Forces and travelled the world that she realized selling quality hair products at affordable prices was something she could do. She could find great quality hair and make wigs for her mother. At the same time she realized how hard it was for women in the Armed Forces overseas to get quality hair, many, like herself and her mother, had wasted far too much money on inferior products.
After much trial and error, Amoakowa Antwi founded Radiant Locks in 2016. As a U.S. Navy Veteran, Amoakowa is dedicated to not only providing quality hair for her mother, but to women worldwide. Radiant Locks was started on the principle that it doesn’t matter who you are, what you’re going through, or where you’re located, you deserve to be Radiant.
