WELCOME
TO THE
KERLCOMMUNITY

We hope to use this page to glorify the beauty of our KerlyGirl customers, many of whom are natural and are seeking the best care for their hair as well as showcase the growth of our budding community! 


It’s been hard to find good products that cater to my hair texture, especially since I’ve started locing my hair. The modern natural hair movement has felt alienating to me at times—often the faces of the movement are Black and/or multiracial women with 3c hair textures. Often products are focused on achieving a defined curl. There’s an implicit culture of viewing looser curls as more beautiful and ‘manageable.’ I’ve always wanted to see more of an embrace of the folks with tightly coiled hair that has no easily visible curl pattern. Folks with 4c hair deserve to get quality hair care products that support our hair growth.
