I had chemical relaxer on my face!
I remember feeling disbelief.
Did this really happen?
Yup, it did!
I had relaxer on my face! The licensed cosmetologist dropped her brush and spilled relaxer on face. I think by accident.
Her later behavior left me stunned! She didn't use neutralizing shampoo over the entire area and later lied to store management about the entire incident!
The reaction was bad and 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 soooo scary.
If I hadn't yet realized the dangers of chemicals 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.
Not true for the face!
I know better NOW.
I only want clean and safe now!
I launched CurlyCoilyTresses®️ to solve a problem I was having...moisturizing and hydrating natural hair care that's clean and free of harsh ingredients, strong preservatives and synthetic and natural fragrances.
More than 70% of hair care products marketed to African Americans contain dangerous ingredients, compared to 40% of products marketed to the "general public".

Ingredients we've deemed unsafe and simply avoid
CurlyCoilyTresses®️ creates non-toxic formulations made without ingredients we deem unsafe including:
❌Fragrances: fragrance allergy affects 2-11% of the general population
❌Essential oils: concentrated, aromatic, volatile liquids distilled from plants, are complex and potentially unpredictable substances which means they have the ability to trigger irritations or contact allergies despite being "natural"
❌Masking agents: chemicals, usually fragrances, used to alter or neutralize scents
❌Harsh preservatives: examples are parabens, formaldehyde, isothiazolinones, phenoxyethanol, dimethyl imidazoldinedione (also known as DMDM hydantoin) and imodiazolidinyl / diazolidinyl urea
❌Drying alcohols: examples are ethanol, ethyl, denatured, isopropyl, SD and benzyl alcohols and methanol
❌Non-water soluble silicones: propensity to build up on hair
❌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
❌Ethanolamine compounds (diethanolamine (DEA), triethanolamine (TEA) and monoethnanolamine (MEA): DEA is an emulsifier in shampoos, cleaners, and detergents, TEA is used as fragrance, pH adjuster and emulsifying agent, and MEA is used in the production of detergents, emulsifiers and polishes all are cancer-causing, and
❌Phthlates: chemicals that make plastic soft and flexible, examples are dibutylphthalate (DBP), dimethylphthalate (DMP) and diethylphthalate (DEP), used to reduce brittleness, cracking and stiffness in beauty products
