Frequently Asked Questions

How It Works

My Curls Understood, or "My Curls" for short, is a membership-based hair product subscription box service. Members pay a flat rate of $26.99/month to receive curated products based on answers to their questionnaire. We procure products based on our subscribers' needs.

Key things to know
  • My Curls boxes are curated for you based on your hair profile/your answers to a questionnaire.
  • You will receive 5-7 deluxe/full size hair products. Sometimes we throw in bonus tools and discounts!
  • We're constantly working with brands to expose you to a variety of product lines. 
  • Subscription spots open every 1st of the month. We limit the number of people who can join so we can grow while providing the best service - be sure to sign up to our email list be reminded when the list opens.

Your hair profile

Your hair profile is created for you based on the 10 answers you provide in our questionnaire when you first sign up. We'll then select the My Curls box that's best suited to your curls. At this time you cannot update your hair profile once your questionnaire is submitted. Email us at if there have been significant changes to your hair.

Making the most of your subscription

You will receive 5-7 deluxe/full-size products hand-picked for you — be sure to show off your results on social media using #CurlsUnderstood. Let us know if you like, love, or "could live without" the products in your My Curls box by providing feedback via our follow-up email survey. This will help us select just the right products for your future boxes.

Can I return products that I don't like?

Unfortunately, we don't accept returns on boxes or products once purchased - the benefit of My Curls Understood is that you get to try before you buy. Each box is worth $55+ on average.

What if I have allergies, how can I be sure products in my box don't contain these ingredients?

Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate allergies. Please review each product's ingredients before use.

What should I do if one of my products arrived damaged?

Oh no! We are so sorry that you received a damaged product! While we inspect each box before it leaves our shipping facility, we unfortunately can't ensure that travel will treat your products kindly. When you receive a damaged product, please email us at immediately.
