This belief was the beginning of a personal journey for two Trinidadian sisters, the De Lisles. A quest not just for easier-to-manage hair, but for hair care that was actually good for them.
It all started with a handmade soap making course on the beautiful island of Tobago...we finally began paying attention to and learning the real purpose of those impossible-to-pronounce chemicals at the back of your fave cosmetic! The potential for irritation, hormone disruption, bio-accumulation, even possible carcinogens was mind boggling (there's formaldehyde in my shampoo?!?!) ! Plus the fact that most provided only temporary benefits but did nothing for the long term health of your skin & hair...sigh.
So with one sister being the graduate mixtress and the other- a medically trained guinea pig (throw our parents in the mix too), we started experimenting. The results were REAL, over time there was noticeable improvement in our textures & growth. We found that HEALTH and BEAUTY naturally go together:) Though going commercial wasn't the intention, soon people started asking "Wha' yuh using in yuh head dey gyul?" So adding in close friends, an aunt plus a cousin or two, we worked on perfecting our mixes and formulating for more textures.
Using undiluted and carefully selected ingredients that moisturize, condition & strengthen, HCHG is perfect for natural hair and a healthy alternative for processed tresses. We stay away from unnecessary synthetics as much as possible and keep it as natural as we can with plant and plant derived ingredients. The aim is to improve the look & feel of your own naked hair over time. We strongly believe that what makes you beautiful should not make you sick in the long run.
NO Mineral Oils, Petroleum, Alcohol, Silicones, Parabens, Phthalates, Sulfates, Formaldehyde or Artificial Colour.
Our products are especially special because they're formulated particularly for the hot, humid Caribbean climate they were created in! It takes potent & special mixes to stand up to the tropics' heat while keeping your hair sufficiently sealed & protected. HCHG understands that, we live it every day and we've got every texture covered.
Each of our products can be used for a range of things, for example our Beeswax Pomade can be used to seal, steam or style; plus it stimulates the scalp and keeps it healthy. That's Simplicity + Value :) We know that each individual's hair is unique but hair care does NOT have to be complicated & tedious.
Once you find the combination of Happy Curls, Happy Girls products that is right for you, we promise you'll see and feel a difference over time as your scalp & strands heal. We stake our own kinks & curls on our mixes and we know you'll love them too <3
