Where it all began

Thursday, August 16th, 2012 is my Loc-versary! The day I chopped off all my chemically treated ("relaxed") hair and started locs. And I haven't looked back. Nearly 9 years later. I am still all-natural.

The thought of starting Curl Cave started mid-way through my loc journey. I was looking to save a few dollars and went to a local drug store. And purchased a product claiming to be loc'ing cream for Black hair.

Well, I tried this product. And nearly went bald! As I discovered that fateful night. As many Black women have learned. Black hair care is rife with products that don't serve our needs.

Losing half my hair was traumatic. And since then I have spent time researching Black hair care. And discovered that 70% of products sold to Black women are toxic. As well as have ingredients that should not be in our hair, like alcohol.

To make matters worse, traveling with Black hair is difficult and expensive. Local retail chains across the globe don't have a variety of products. And don't come in travel sizes. And when you do find the product you love it can be frequently out of stock. Never aligning to when you need to do your hair.

And shipping internationally? Nearly non-existent. So it is wasted money to buy a large tub of a product. To then fill a travel-size container and throw out the rest. As hotels don't provide options for Black women.

Curl Cave is the for black women's loc'd hair. Instead of forwarding your mail. We'll forward you, your needed hair care monthly and on-demand.

Curl Cave is set out to be the first black-owned on-demand travel-sized eco-friendly clean hair care for loc'ed hair.

🖤 for tight curly-haired people
♻️ little to no plastic
