Curlies Tell All: Mahisha Dellinger

Mahisha Dellinger, the multi-ethnic founder of the CURLS hair-care line, shares her personal and professional experiences working with naturally curly hair

Q: How has that changed since you became involved in the beauty industry?

A: Because I have a better understanding of how to properly care for curls, I now embrace my them. They are beautiful! I rarely ever straighten my hair now. The last time I had a blow out was five years ago.


Q: What are the biggest developments in the world of texture?

A: Honestly, just having products available for naturally curly hair (minus the gooey/greasy products mostly found in the ethnic aisles) is a huge win for curlies! Our product offerings in the past were slim. Now there are a host of wonderful curly brands to choose from.


Q: What type of products/tools and what amount of time do you spend on your hair on "curly" days and on "straight" days?

A: I use two products: one styler (CURLS Milkshake for no hold or CURLS Curl Gel-les'c when I need more control/hold), and CURLS Quenched Curls Organic Moisturizer (to refresh and replenish my 2nd, 3rd, and 4th day hair) on my curly days. When I wear my hair straight, I use a little CURLS Champagne & Caviar Curl Elixir as a heat protectant before flat ironing.


Q: Any other comments/observations on curly/textured hair?

A: If you treat your curls right, like a fine silk blouse, you will have beautiful, healthy curls that will last you a lifetime!

As co-founder of NaturallyCurly.com, a website for curly hair she began with her business partner and friend, Gretchen Heber, Michelle Breyer helped create the leading community and resource for people with curly hair. Frustrated by the lack of information on curly hair and the limited products available in the marketplace, the duo launched the site in 1998 with the help of a 14-year-old web designer. When Procter & Gamble called three years later to advertise to the NaturallyCurly.com® audience, Breyer knew they had indeed created a force in the industry, providing helpful information and unparalleled expertise for what was then considered a niche market.
