Curlsmith takes care of all textures from soft waves and curls to beautiful kinks and coils. Everyone is catered for with beautiful well thought out natural products. I’m super excited to be involved with representing the brand, educating and celebrating the joy of natural textured hair.” Jennie Roberts said.
