- A Touch of Diva - Haircare
I founded Curls Dynasty in 2014 because there was a need for it. I had relaxed hair and at some point decided to transition to natural hair. I needed products that would help me manage my hair textures, the lifeless relaxed hair ends and the new growth which was rough and dry no matter what I did to it. Managing the two textures was not easy.
Long story short Curls Dynasty was born with a mission to empower women with textured hair to experience and embrace hair freedom. Have a friend who needs a touch of diva? Get them some Curls Dynasty products!
