Born and raised in Gary, Indiana, Ceballos-Crump created Honey Baby Naturals after 15 years of working in the beauty industry developing products. After becoming a mom, she realized she wanted to create her own hair and body line made with safe and natural ingredients.
"While trying to create products that would work for my family and similar families with different hair types and textures, I recalled my Puerto Rican grandmother having long dark beautiful healthy hair and flawless skin, and all she used was honey," Ceballos-Crump tells MamasLatinas. She understood the benefits "before honey was really a buzz ingredient" and Honey Baby Naturals, which is sold nationwide on Target, was born.

It coats the hair and mimics some of the natural properties of the hair.
