Whether it was a home-grown beautician or a professional, these incidents made me question everything I knew about hair care.
But my journey wasn't straightforward. I'd grown up in a world of chemical relaxers, hot pressing combs and jheri curls.
Embracing natural hair felt like uncharted waters. When I finally took the plunge into the natural hair world, the first phase was brief, going from “transitioning” to "the big chop" in months.
But the challenges didn't end there. Product after product left me with parched hair and allergic reactions. My quest for answers took me to allergy tests, international brands and countless research-filled nights.
Out of sheer desperation and determination, I delved into creating what I couldn't find. Using raw ingredients, I began formulating products that catered to my specific needs. This wasn't about starting a business; it was a personal mission.
My background in project management and my nearly three decades-long experience in the utility industry fueled my quest. Add to that a lifetime's worth of hair care knowledge and a perfectionist's spirit, and a year later, I had a collection of perfected formulas.
Originally, it was just for me.
But when my corporate chapter closed, a new opportunity emerged. I realized my struggles weren't unique.
This led to the birth of CurlyCoilyTresses® — a passion I didn't even know I had — until that moment.
More than just a brand, CurlyCoilyTresses® is a story of resilience, self-discovery and the relentless journey towards authentic natural hair care
