  • About Flora & Curl

    Before I go into what Flora & Curl say about themselves I would like to just touch on how our shipments arrive.. These boxes are packed with recyclable packaging which is a big plus to us here at This Little Curl. Now that has been said here is what Flora & Curl say about themselves:

    Hello! My name is Rose, and I am the Founder of Flora & Curl.

    I made a transforming decision to embrace my natural hair. Before this decision, my hair and scalp had been badly damaged following years of chemically processing and straightening my natural hair since I was little. In fact, it was the norm to keep the straightening relaxer cream on my entire strands for more than the hour, which would leave my scalp burnt and sore afterward. I would apply this to my hair every month. I soon realised that this shouldn't be the way forward if I wanted my hair to be truly healthy. I needed to embrace my natural curls, and I felt moved to do so after a spontaneous long break away from using the relaxer.

    When I began researching products to use on my new hair growth which was incredibly dry, I discovered that many products on the market were formulated with low quality ingredients or harsh ingredients. From drying alcohols in gels or harsh detergents in shampoos that stripped moisture, or heavy fillers that led to constant product build-up, I felt that nothing ever seemed to treat my hair with the love and care that I felt that it deserved. In addition, I would often feel confused by reading complicated product labels or using products that required a multitude of different steps to follow. While working full-time and also wanting to maintain healthy natural hair, I thought that embracing my natural hair shouldn't have to be this complicated or time-consuming.

    And so, I launched a blog to further the discussion about healthy textured hair and to share my natural hair journey. In doing so, I was able to connect with an amazing community of people who were learning about their natural curls while transitioning into healthy habits. Soon after my blog gained traction with subscribers, I randomly posed a question one day: “What is your biggest hair problem?” I received more than 300 responses! The majority of responses were concerned with recurring dry hair. I could certainly relate to this.

    In addition to this, there was a shared frustration about where to even begin, and how to start and manage a healthy haircare routine that did not take so much time. The idea of developing my very own haircare line blossomed from there. 

    I embarked on a journey to restore the health of my hair and scalp using pure and raw ingredients through specific products that achieved specific results and goals in my routine. 

    Eager to experiment to find my solution, I began sourcing plant-based ingredients from around the world, from Brazilian oils to Ghanaian butters and botanical ingredients. I created my butters and haircare gels and recipes in my mum’s kitchen. I quickly discovered that there was a whole newworld of gentle, all-natural remedies for very dry, textured hair like my own. I chose the freedom in cutting my natural hair, trying out different scents in essential oils, and began making D.I.Y recipe videos. I ultimately learned how to take care of my natural hair from a minimalist perspective that was radically different from the norm. This inspired me to develop my line of products that were essentially inspired by potency and simplicity. While I was designing my website with the inclusion of beautifully hand-drawn botanicals by a local artist (I adored her work!), I knew that I wanted to distinguish my brand, in an industry prone to green-washed marketing and heavy ingredient claims. Studies continue to show that the textured haircare market still contains many hazardous and harmful ingredients compared to its counterpart (EWG & Silent Spring Institute). But the trouble doesn’t end with conventional haircare products. A report by the EWG notes that ''although “natural” hair products presumably have fewer toxic ingredients than traditional, many of these products still contain potentially harmful ingredients''. Flora & Curl is moisture-centred (our curls love moisture!), and made with a clean consciousness through our Clean Curl Promise™. My products thrive with potency and plant-powered ingredients (mineral clays, flower and fruit oils, organic waters and herbs). To create an aromatherapeutic curl care range, I formulated my products with my favourite blend of floral, herbal and fruit-derived essences. While designing my labels, I knew that I didn't want to create a line that required complex steps to yield effective results. My philosophy? Less is more. Whether you are new to natural hair or are a long-time natural, my haircare range delivers a minimalist approach to help you to take care of your natural hair and reach your curl goals. Through potent formulas to hydrate, soothe, protect, and style your curls, each product and each collection serves a unique purpose in your routine. The scent and feel of the range has been carefully crafted, to ensure that your everyday curl care experience is a sensorial and aromatherapeutic delight. I truly believe that haircare is selfcare!In our growing curl community, we are simplifying curl education and acknowledge the significance of the natural hair movement in inspiring us to embrace our naturally given hair.

    With love, FOUNDER & FORMULATOR Flora & Curl Haircare

    We create plant-powered curl care products that respond to the basic needs of your curls.

  • More Information/Directions

    Our Curl Refresh Clay Wash is a pure, all-natural, clay-based clarifying treatment to help press reset on your curls. Our unique formula is concocted with earth softening clays, sweet conditioning fruits and stimulating organic essential oils for all curl types: curls, kinks and coils. It contains no synthetic petrochemicals, artificial fragrances, sulphates, silicones, surfactants/detergents, soap or wax to leave a residue on the hair or scalp. As the Clay Wash contains no soaps or foaming agents, there will be no lather at all. It is formulated with Bentonite clay, an incredibly powerful clay, possessing a negative charge (anionic). It has the ability to remove positively charged (cationic) conditioners and products that can build up on the hair and scalp. Micro molecules supercharge absorption power, pulling oils, toxins, heavy metals and impurities and stimulating blood flow.

    It does double the job: Our clay-based cleanser is the perfect deep clean detox and curl reset formula that cleans your curls gently without stripping curls of essential moisture and proteins.

    Where in my curl routine does a clay wash go? Before shampoo and conditioning? Instead of shampoo?
    The clay wash is used to clarify the hair and scalp, in place of a shampoo. One of the great things about using a clay wash is that it's optional to follow up with a conditioner. When used alone it can leave curls soft, shiny, and nicely detangled. Whether you do, or do not follow up with a conditioner is a preference. See how your curls feel afterward.

    When and how often should you use the clay wash?
    Use it to clarify your hair and scalp, when hair feels dirty, heavy and weighed down with build-up and the scalp feels the same and is flaky. This can be used every 3-4 weeks, to give yourself a break from gentle shampoos, in place of harsher sulfate-based clarifiers.

    How much of the formula do I use to wash my hair?
    Depending on your hair needs and length, you will use an average of 2-3 tablespoons of clay formula for each wash.

    Is it suitable for use on colour-treated hair?
    Clay containing products are not usually recommended for colour-treated hair since the absorption may remove chemical treatments. We recommend patch testing before use.

    What is the detox period?
    A consideration when transitioning to natural haircare products is the use of silicones and sulfates in many commercial haircare brands. Silicone and other artificial substances coat the hair much like plastic to give it slip and shine. If you have been using commercial shampoos or conditioners containing silicones, sulfates and other harsh chemicals for a long time, your hair will benefit from a detox. The absence of harsh detergents and chemicals combined with the goodness of natural clay means that after three months of regular use, you should find that your curls will feel naturally softer after a clay wash.
