Do you have naturally curly/natural hair or considering to go natural? If so the one of thing for sure that is common among every natural hair lady is that we spend a lot of time and money trying to find the products that work best for our hair.
In addition to starting up a natural hair blog, I am an avid follower of the natural hair community. Over the last few months I had been reading about something called CurlBOX. Initially, I completely didn’t know what this was. Though as I began to find out about it, I was quite intrigued to learn of this subscription-based service for naturally curly hair care products. Then I thought what a genius idea!
CurlBOX, is an exclusive, affordable and effortless way to explore new hair care products which are delivered to subscribers each month. Monthly subscribers receive 5-7 quality hair product samples for a $20 monthly fee. In the CurlBOX you find hair care products from established brands as well as some up and coming brands.
Beautiful Brown Girls was granted the honor to do an interview with the founder and president of CurlBOX, Myleik Teele. Here, she chats about her business, her hair, and the products she enjoys:
Please share with BBG your natural hair journey? (How long have you been natural? did you transition or big chop? What inspired your to go natural?)
I’ve been natural since 2002. I worked in a beauty salon during college (shampooing & blow drying) and I got to see first hand how with the right products, naturally curly hair was just so beautiful. After running my hands through so many beautiful curls I knew that I wanted to see what my hair looked like since Id been getting a relaxer since I was 6 years old.
I have big chopped three different times for various reasons. My most recent big chop was nearly 2 years ago and I kept it cut low for a while but I’m growing it out now!
Who are your hairspirations?
I love Vlogger CharyJays hair. I love her videos and she has so many styles to try for type 4 hair. I also LOVE NeffyFroFro over in London … Her hair is amazing. I’m a big fan of Youtube so I’m always tuning in to see what the ladies are up to and I don’t think anyone has more perfect curls than blogger Curly Nikki!
What are your go to products or whats your holy grail of products?
I have SO many products that I use because I’m always doing something different with my hair (right now I’m wearing box braids) but my go to’s are:
Elasta QP Mango Butter – This is my ride or die product. I know its going to work no matter what.
Carols Daughter Macadamia Hold & Control Smoother – I used to use Hicks Edges until I found this … This is like Hicks on steroids!
Shea Radiance Hair Milk – If you’re rocking a braid out or twist out you can spray this EVERY day and its like hitting refresh on your computer.
Ouidad Moisture Lock Leave In Conditioner – discovered this in the March CurlBOX and I’m not sure I’ve EVER seen a leave in like this … EVER.
TALIAH WAAJID Medicated Strengthener – I work out and SWEAT a lot and my scalp can get itchy and needs to be refreshed and this is the most amazing feeling on your scalp EVER in life. I’m serious.
