CURLS has launched a new collection of scalp and haircare products designed to protect and promote healthy hair growth while wearing a protective style. CURLS Hair Under There Collection is a full top-to-bottom hair care system for weave and wig wearers to care for their natural hair.
According to a 2019 Mintel study, 70% of Black women had worn a weave, wig, braids, or extensions within the past six months. Recognizing the need for products curated specifically for these women, CURLS set about creating the answer. In addition to fun variety and flair, protective styles give those with textured tresses a break from the constant handling and manipulation that can cause breakage to delicate kinky, curly strands. Therefore, in order for protective styles to be truly beneficial, the hair and scalp must be properly cleansed, conditioned, and hydrated prior to any long term installations. Enter: the CURLS Hair Under There Collection.
"Setting a healthy foundation before going into a protective style is so important," says goddess locs creator and celebrity stylist Dr. Kari Williams. "It's all about protecting, growing and restoring, and this new CURLS collection does just that."
Composed of five products, this collection is perfect for the women who love to accentuate their personal style with weaves and wigs without sacrificing the health of their hair. By focusing on both pre-install and post-takedown treatment, “Hair Under There,”ensures that your crown is thoroughly protected and replenished before and after your protective style. The affordably priced line includes the Hair Under There Detox Tea Cleanser, Strengthen Me Moisture Mask, BOMB Braid in Conditioner, Soothe & Cool Me Scalp Potion, and Protect Me Edge Styling Pomade.
Businesswoman and TV personality Angela Simmons has partnered with CURLS as a brand ambassador, and says that the line works for her and her lifestyle, as she changes out her weaves monthly. "I especially love the BOMB Braid in Conditioner," she says. "I'm tender-headed and this helps a lot!"
