Sustainable Products

AVOCURL was created out of a dorm room by Founder, Jasmine Curtis, who was tired of products that left her hair dry and contained harmful ingredients. Her handmade creations quickly replaced her other products as she started to see the results of using natural ingredients in her hair like avocado, coconut, banana, and aloe vera.

The products are handmade in small batches, never tested on animals, and contain certified organic ingredients.
