Hey Curlfriend, I’m Joy. 

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated with natural hair, but when I attended a foster care training my relationship with hair changed forever.

It was in that training I was told black families are needed as foster parents. I knew wanted to help black children in foster care maintain cultural connections  and the most practical way was to offer hair styling lessons to resource parents.

It was then that it really came to my attention just how hard it was to find clean textured hair care. Determined to find a solution, I hired a black chemist to  formulate with plants and created a brand with a mission to give back to the foster care community.

The Joy of Curls is a small family business and we're so glad to have you on this journey with us!

In addition to selling our plant-based goodies all over the world we continue to educate resource parents as well as foster and adoption agency staff on the needs of curls, kinks and coils.

Follow our journey on Instagram and Facebook @thejoyofcurlsbeauty as we become the #1 textured hair resource for the foster care community in the world!
