Best of Beauty 2016: Qhemet Biologics, Inc.
Welcome to the new spirit of luxury. Qhemet’s eco-friendly hair care product line is celebrated for their ability to enhance beauty innate to each woman—nuanced and intelligent. Having mastered the art of restoring health and shine to lustrous locks, Qhemet transforms textures and delivers unparalleled vibrancy, strength while preserving volume and shape. A Modeliste Beauty Award Winner for 2016, this is why we love Qhemet:
Qhemet Biologics is a line of high performance, eco-friendly hair care products for conscientious naturals who desire healthy hair and a healthy scalp. Our products are based on African, Mediterranean and Ayurvedic hair care traditions and formulated to restore moisture and manageability to thick, dry textured hair.
Modeliste: Where did the name come from?
Felis: Qhemet is a variation of KMT, the eponymous place name for ancient Egypt.
Modeliste: What inspired the creation of the line?
Felis: Through my master’s degree in ancient history, I came across multiple references to the old world plant oils and extracts many of our ancestors used to groom, protect and condition their hair. I made a list of these, tested them and narrowed the list down to the ones that worked particularly well on tightly coiled hair. I then based my product formulas around these botanicals with the mission to create high performance hair care products for conscientious naturals with thick, dry hair, a demographic to which I belonged and whose hair needs had been overlooked. Our current product assortment works synergistically to support hair growth and restore moisture and manageability.
Felis: Our best seller and must have product for those with thick, dry hair in search of lasting, penetrating moisture is the Amla & Olive Heavy Cream.

Modeliste: Best beauty advice.
Felis:Be kind and gentle to your hair, regardless of its texture. Always apply an effective detangler such as our Cocoa Tree Detangling Ghee to sectioned hair before combing and always comb from the bottom up using a wide tooth comb. Always opt for a gentle shampoo like our Egyptian Wheatgrass Cleansing Tea over harsh, sulfate containing shampoos that strip the hair.
