Titi Branch, one of the co-founders of the wildly successful natural hair care line, Miss Jessieís, has died. According to reports, the 45 year old beauty entrepreneur committed suicide on Dec. 4th at her home but her death was kept hush hush until this past weekend.

The graduate of the University of Maryland, who created the haircare line with sister Miko, also ran a popular New York salon. The branch sisters started their haircare line about 10 years ago and catered mostly to ethnic and curly hair types.

There are reports that Titi was battling with depression before taking her own life. RIP, lady!
