Terms of Service
You agree that by using this website, you are at least 18 years of age, or visiting under the supervision of a parent or guardian, and legally able to enter into a contract.
It is your responsibility to review these Terms and Conditions periodically. We reserve the right to revise these Terms and Conditions at any time without notice to you. If you do not agree to these terms and conditions, please do not use this site.
Overview: Note from Lo
Everything shared on this website is my opinion and only my opinion. I am not a stylist, product formulator, doctor, lawyer or astronaut and I don’t pretent to be one on the internet. Everything that I write is (obviously) not a substitute for medical or professional advice and you should get medical or professional advice from a competent industry leader whenever required.
I am just a girl building a business from her home and working on her dream of helping one million women feel absolutely beautiful in their own skin and the hair they were born with. I am the sole employee of Consciously Curly and juggle between graphic and website design, writing all of my own courses, posts and blogs, being my own bookkeeper and accountant, marketing, content planning, researching and learning all that I can, on top of creating free challenges and events for our community each and every month.
This means that everything on this website is my original work (unless noted otherwise) and it is very likely that I wrote the contents of this website in a sleep-deprived state in the middle of the night, or while I was working on six other tasks. Please understand this is likely the reason for any typos, grammatical errors or broken links. Please also respect that everything I’ve written on this website took me a significant amount of time, effort and research (often times at the expense of my social life) and may not be reproduced in any way without permission. Photos may not be used without permission.
I offer tons of free resources on this website, including a blog, product finder, downloadable e-guide and curly hair process trackers, and also sell courses, mini-series and bundles and also use affiliate links in the product finder and in many of my posts For the purpose of disclosure, please assume that all links are affiliate links and that I make a small commission through any purchases made through links on this website. Also, please accept my guarantee that I will ONLY link to products that I have personally purchased, tested, and vetted from companies that I genuinely believe in and under no circumstances will I link to a product I do not absolutely love just for the sake of an affiliate commission.
For the sake of making a better experience for you, I do not allow advertising networks, paid, or sponsored posts, and as I said, all opinions are my own. These ebooks, courses, and affiliate links help me keep the site up and running with the costs of software, hosting, security, updates, and my personal time. Thanks in advance for your support if you ever use an affiliate link.
I send out regular e-mails with curly tips, offers, deals, sales and links to content that you’ll love. Though many of the deals and offers that I share are not from companies that I am affiliated with, for the purpose of this disclosure, please assume that all links in my e-mails are affiliate links and that I make a small commission through any purchases made through them.
Please also assume and understand that I am a real person with real feelings, as are the other readers and commenters on this website and across our social media platforms, so please act respectfully.
Putting yourself out there on the internet is no easy feat, people can be cruel, but I continue to do it because I know that I can help women from all over the world fall back in love with themselves the way that I did. My mother always told me “If I don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all” and I enforce that policy on my website and across all of my social media platforms. Disagreements and respectful debates are always welcome, but all jerks will be immediately banned. This website is not a democracy and I will not tolerate spam, self promotion, rude comments toward me or others, name calling, or other rude-ness. Don’t like something I’ve said or written? Disagree respectfully and preferably with sources so we can both learn, and I’ll extend you the same courtesy.
The goal of Consciously Curly is to uplift, encourage and support women in their journey of self love and embracing their natural hair, so any personal attacks, rude comments or name calling will get you banned. We aren’t in middle school anymore.
If you move in love and genuinely speak from your heart, you have nothing to worry about.
