One of the co-founders of the curl-care hair products line, Miss Jessie’s, has died. Sadly, it is being reported that Titi Branch may have taken her own life.
Titi Branch, 45, started Miss Jessie’s with her sister, Miko Branch, and named the curly hair product line after their beloved grandmother. Unfortunately, after all of her success as a co-founder of the company, Titi was found dead at just 45 years old. So sad.
Titi Branch: Dead At 45 — Miss Jessie’s Co-Founder
Tragic news for the family and friends behind Miss Jessie’s.
Titi reportedly died on Dec. 4, and her obituary for NV Magazine claims that her death was due to an “apparent suicide due to asphyxia.” However, this information has not been confirmed.
The obituary also states that she leaves behind her parents, sister, nephew, and boyfriend with whom she recently created a line of beard care products for.
So sad. Our thoughts go out to Titi’s family during this difficult time.
Titi & Sister Miko’s Successful Natural Hair Care Line
Titi and her sister made a name for themselves when they created Miss Jessie’s Curly Pudding for their family-owned salon, Curve, in Brooklyn, New York.
Later, in 2005, due to the success of their first product, the salon was renamed Miss Jessie’s in honor of their grandmother.
Titi and Miko went on to create even more products, including Curly Meringue, Curly Buttercreme, and Baby Buttercreme, all under the Miss Jessie’s brand. Most of these products were created right in Titi’s kitchen!
