Flora & Curl has launched!

THE VISION

I am excited to announce our official launch today! I would like to take you through the journey of Flora & Curl.

Flora & Curl was born to disrupt a natural haircare market that is ruled with greenwashing and filled with watered down products. I wanted to create haircare products made with intent, care, gentleness and absolute purity, for the woman who appreciates the earth and the gifts the earth provides.

After I formulated the concept for the hair collection and outlined the key product ethos, the journey of creating the visuals for the products was truly beautiful. I chose the name Flora & Curl because it expressed true nature, pristine beauty and appreciation, and it signified a relationship between our hair and nature.

Flora & Curl is an expression of love and the presence of a space where hair meets nature. Flora & Curl says earth to hair. For too long has textured hair been looked down upon and labelled with terms such as 'unrully', 'unmanageable' and 'unkept'. I wanted to create a philosophy that would inspire textured haired women to fall deeply in love with their curls in a society, and allow it flourish and blossom just as they are planted on their scalp, using the most gentle and supportive ingredients. From loosely textured curls to tightly textured curls, you deserve healthy hair.

THE DESIGN

Icon
I visualised the logo to be simple, yet elegant. The result of our beautiful logo is designed by Nancy at @Aligneddesignco and our beautiful icon which symbolises flower-infused, botanical hydration is designed by Jonn at jonathanli.format.com.

Visual
Say hello to 100% plant inspired hydration. In creating a premium, high quality haircare line, I wanted the labels to evoke feelings of wild flora and fauna, of the jungle, of the earth. It came to light in the most perfect and visible way possible. The ethereal hand drawings of Francesca matched the ultimate vision of haircare rituals that are inspired by the beauty of the earth. 

The Labels
Having the visuals to hand made it easy for me to place the words and discriptions for each product on the label. I say easy, but I have worked tirelessly, noted feedback from surveying fellow naturals, tweaked here and there (many, many, times) before deciding on a final front that would merge with the botanical visual. This is the result. I am highly grateful for the wonderful people and the thoughtful opinions and feedbacks from my friends and fellow curlies that helped shaped the process! Thank you, thank you.

The Website
I hope you enjoy perusing through this space for Flora & Curl. It was enjoyable setting up this place and decorating it.

Every single product is hand filled and labelled by me in my studio here in London, and made with absolute purity. I hope you enjoy the products as much as I do. 

Welcome to Flora & Curl.

Rose
Founder | Flora & Curl

Wonderful products!

This was my first time trying FloraCurl products and I absolutely love them so far! The leave-in detangler provides amazing slip and leaves my hair soft, moisturized and with way less frizz.
The hair oil is amazing as a scalp treatment and as a pre-poo before wash day. Looking forward to trying everything else in the line very soon!!
