CEO/Founder of Hairlicious & Hairlista Inc.

Valerie, also known as Sunshyne, born and raised in Toronto, Canada, struggled with her relaxed hair. For years, her hair hovered around shoulder length with thin damaged ends. Despite her many attempts, it never seemed to grow past that length. As her frustration increased, she began to research various ways of taking better care of her hair.

Valerie came across several social media forums where many ladies achieved long healthy hair! Through her newly formed inspiration and determination, Valerie started her own healthy hair care journey October 2007.  Shortly after, Hairlicious Inc. was born and quickly became a tool she used to help track her progress.

Valerie, founder of Hairlicious Inc., created Hairlista Inc. Social Network in 2008 as a platform to educate, inform and encourage women on healthy hair care practices. Hairlista Inc. was a home for hundreds of thousands of ladies who were relaxed, natural and transitioning. Hairlista Inc. came offline in 2017 to embark on other healthy hair endeavours.

Valerie started her hair journey with thin, damaged, shoulder length hair back in 2007 and has been maintaining healthy MBL (Mid Back Length) hair since 2010.  Valerie is dedicated & determined to help educate and provide knowledge on healthy hair care practices to those who are seeking healthier hair.
