Our Goal

To be an accomplice for all people with curly and natural hair – no matter their ethnicity, gender, age, ability, or religion – by providing equitable access to high quality curl-curated products, professional support, and expert-led education to help eradicate racism in the hair industry.

We will be putting these goals into an annual progress report that we will be sharing with all of you to keep us accountable.
