I am so excited and proud to introduce my baby...my project...Curls & Potions! :-) I have not posted this on my blog when I first launched my site because I wasn't sure how I wanted to share this with everyone. I have been working so hard on this and put so much time into it over these last few months. Hair has been my passion for so long as well as running and working on something that I created from the ground up. Curls & Potions is a natural hair care line with products that a multi-use. What I mean when I say "multi-use" is that most of my products can be used as leave-ins, detanglers, deep treatments, or stylers. They are for all hair types but mainly best for 3b to 4b hair types. I don't like to do the hair typing thing but I know it can be someone helpful when looking for products to help you figure out which might work best for you. It's not a sure fire approach but give most people a great starting point.
Now, I love this natural hair movement. Whether you want to rock your curls or not...this entire shift has made our culture more aware and really has helped many woman change their views about beauty as a whole. I know it took me soooo long to learn to really embrace my varying texture as well as redefine what I perceived as beautiful.
Here is a little bit of background: (shown on the About Us page)
Curls & Potions™ began years ago before the natural hair movement took over. In its beginning state, it was an idea, a hobby, and also had a different name. Once known as Butterflyz Haven™ has now been reformulated, repackaged, and grown into Curls & Potions™. This natural hair line is focused on the beauty of everyone's CURLS, COILS, & WAVES.
One major focus of Curls & Potions™ is to bring that extra moisture out and reduce the need to have too many products. The line of products are multitasking which sets us apart from most product lines.
About Our Founder/CEO
Michelle Nicole Fontaine-Jones is the Founder and CEO of Curls & Potions™. Michelle stopped using relaxers back in 2007 due to excessive damage from hair color. With the difference in textures and trying to figure out what would work for her hair type she decided to do research on natural solutions. With the limited market for natural products or products for her hair type she decided to try her hand at her own business. Through lots of trials and lots of errors, Butterfly Haven™ was born. She started making skin and hair care products from her home and selling them locally as well as online. It was a slow start but the moment it began to pick up she had orders to move to Germany (Military Spouse).
She spent 3 yrs living overseas and continued her hair journey but sadly stopped promoting her business. Fast forward to 2015, with a burning desire to be apart of such an amazing movement, Curls & Potions™ was born. Through the lessons of Butterflyz Haven™ she stepped out stronger and more focused.
Michelle is not only a daughter, a mother, a wife, savvy techie, writer, and natural hair enthusiast- she is passionate and driven. Her dedication and determination to leave a mark in this world is electrifying. The packaging colors represent the constant battle she has watched her mother fight- PINK is a continuous part of Curls & Potions™ which represents Breast Cancer. Michelle lets PINK into everything she does so she never forgets that life is extremely short and it's important to leave your mark. Curls & Potions™ is a piece of Michelle that she wants to give to the world!
