About | CurlyCoilyTresses®️
We carry the weight of the world on our shoulders. We take care of spouses, partners, children, parents, all before we take care of ourselves.
We’re professionals even when we’re being diminished.
We make $0.63 for every $1 paid to white men.
70% of hair care products marketed to us contain dangerous ingredients, while only 40% of products marketed to the "general public" do.
We know self-care is never selfish nor self-serving, but we still feel guilty about indulging.
We’re here for you!
Struggle no more!
We’re here to serve you and your crown.
We'll nourish and enrich you, so you can continue climbing mountains, smashing glass ceilings and living your dreams fearlessly!
Live unapologetically! Let this be your mission, your mantra.
Claim what’s yours!
And feel confident in your skin!
I had chemical relaxer on my face!
I remember feeling disbelief.
Did this really happen?
Yeah, it did!
The licensed cosmetologist dropped her brush and spilled relaxer on my face.
And she didn't use neutralizing shampoo over the entire affected area!
And she lied to store management about the entire incident!
I had to undergo chemical burn treatment with silvadene cream. BTW, silvadene can't be exposed to sunlight and I live in the sunshine state.
It was so scary.
If I hadn't yet realized the dangers of chemical relaxers this should've been a wake up call.
I've had chemical burns on my scalp before. It feels like slices when washed, then oozes, then crusts over, then eventually heals, all over a period of days.
Not true for the face!
I know better now.
And there was something else that made me anxious.
How would I style my hair without relaxers? How would it look on me? What would others think?
Up to this point like so many others, all I knew was hot pressing combs and chemical relaxers. Oh and jheri curls, I’d forgotten about those years.
If I was this anxious about my natural texture, others were as well.
I want natural hair care to be an uplifting and confidence building environment with essential, effortless natural hair care, calming and soothing you through career moves, family milestones, marital dilemmas and new decades, making certain you look and feel remarkable for every stage of you!
Our products are formulated with our naturally powerful, plant-based complex to moisturize, hydrate and strengthen your curls around-the-clock!

✅ hydrolyzed oat protein and sodium lactate, known to work twice as hard to moisturize hair by bonding to hair and grabbing and retaining water in hair! Where else do you get two for the price of one?
✅ behentrimonium methosulfate and cetearyl alcohol, known mild conditioners add needed slip for detangling and ingredient penetration, something naturals always need!
✅ authentic, organic oils and butters, the kind that haven't been exposed to heat and pesticides and still have their genuine qualities, ensure your hair is deeply nourished with phytosterols, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and fatty acids!
Dry hair and damaged ends will be a distant memory!

❌Dyes: can cause issues for those with allergies or sensitivities
❌Sodium lauryl sulfates (SLS) / sodium laureth sulfates (SLES): harsh detergents, foaming agents and emulsifiers which keep oils and water mixed
