Our founder, April Peck, was featured in The Tease for our haircare line on a mission to #savehairsavelives, advocating suicide prevention through haircare.
For nearly two years, the world has been left reeling from a global pandemic that has completely upended the ways in which we live our lives. But, unbeknownst to some, there’s actually already been another crisis at hand that despite being less publicized, is frankly just as troubling—the mental health crisis.
Before Covid-19, nearly 1 in 5 U.S. adults experienced mental illness and suicide was the second leading cause of death among people between the ages of 10 and 34, according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness. The pandemic—which has left many feeling depressed, anxious, or hopeless—has only worsened the already pressing problem.
Beauty industry veteran April Peck is no stranger to some of the mental health issues facing people today. After tragically losing her sister to suicide, she has since made it her mission to advocate for suicide prevention, to ensure that others don’t suffer her sister’s same fate. In fact, it’s why she launched Save Me From, her damage-specific haircare line that not only saves hair, but saves lives, by donating to charity organization that are working to end suicide.
