Best Curly Hair Products For Naturally Curly Hair Photo Gallery
I was born and raised in Sacramento, California, in a neighborhood called Meadowview, a.k.a.
“Danger Island.” There were drive-by shootings, home invasions, drug addicts and drug dealers; most of my friends were pregnant by 15, and some of their brothers didn’t make it to 18. Generational cycles of poverty existed—and still exist today. Many kids did not finish high school, much less start/ complete college. I was determined to change my life, to rewrite my story, to change the legacy for my four children.
I suffered many setbacks during my life, which I talk about in the book, but I have triumphed over those trials.
Tell us a little about Curls.
I founded Curls back in 2002. I was an Intel Corporation professional and newly natural mother searching for options for naturally curly hair. Back then, the offerings for textured hair were extremely limited—relaxers and perms or Jheri curls and grease products…I didn’t want any of those. So I worked closely with leading cosmetics chemists to develop my award-winning brand.
Curls was one of the original four brands selected to create Target’s multicultural category several years ago. The initial test in 105 Target stores soon expanded to nationwide distribution, and other retailers took notice and partnered with the brand.
Now Curls is available in Target, CVS,
Walgreens, Rite Aid, Sally Beauty and Walmart stores all over the country.
