Shavone Riggins discovered the inspiration for her business while balancing her work and personal life. The mother of six (who doesn’t look a day over 30), would be boiling curls while tending to her children when she wondered why there wasn’t a product on the market that alleviated the tedious process. Shavone’s vision and passion to serve women led to the creation of Curlkalon Hair. Hailed as, “curls in a box,” Curlkalon hair services the budget-friendly natural girl whose curls are one of her biggest fashion statements. Combined with the crotchet method, Curlakon hair provides the perfect protective (and fabulous) hairstyle.
