Dark and Lovely started as a company in 1972 that provided hair coloring products for African-American hair. Forty-five years later, it has evolved into one of the largest staple companies for Black hair care, providing products that include relaxers, pomades, deep conditioning treatments and shampoos. With the natural hair care movement that has taken place over the past several years, Dark and Lovely has kept up with the pace by providing some of the best products for kinks and curls of all kinds.
