Royal Locks Haircare offers a wonderful range of products formulated for the precise needs of curly and wavy hair. Given that I have naturally curly hair, I was very eager to try this brand since their products are made with my hair in mind.

About Royal Locks,

Royal Locks Curl Care was born in 2014 when a classic curly girl got tired of mixing multiple gels and creams to get the benefits she desired. It became apparent to her the curl community was seeking an effortless approach to curl care.

The idea of Pro Curl Cream Gel was born. Pro Curl takes a multi-functional approach to traditional curl care to nourish your locks like a cream and defines and holds them like a gel. Since then, our product line has expanded to offer the best curl support, from shower to style, to give you beautiful locks from waves to curls to coils.

It all started with having her first child. When Casey Simmons experienced all the hormonal changes of motherhood, her formerly pin straight hair became wavy. Struggling with her new identity as a mom, her different look added an extra layer to figure out. But it’s just hair, right? Wrong. Casey knew finding confidence and balance would take time, but she liked that her new wavy look seemed to express who she is: unique, approachable and fun. So, she started with the hair.

Of course, finding the right products was a journey in itself! Casey’s research found that many women like her experience changes in hair texture throughout their lives or choose to stop straightening and wear their hair naturally curly. These women were also overwhelmed when attempting to understand how to manage their new curly patterns. Additionally, they too felt a connection between their look and individuality. Changing your hair changes how you feel, and for many it is important to have your look represent the real you.

When Casey discovered Royal Locks Curl Care, she loved that the products worked with simple steps that fit into her new lifestyle while delivering beautiful results.

  1. Alas, I have straight hair, but I will remember Royal Locks to recommend to those with curls

    1. These products are incredible for people with curls, and I highly recommend it to anyone with waves to curls. They definitely would be of little use for your straight hair, Allison!

  2. Gentle and sulfate-free seems to be the safe way to go for all of us! What a great find for anyone with waves or curls!!

    1. I agree with you, Claudia! This is most definitely a brand worth exploring for people with waves and curls!
