We did it! $5M Raised!

Published on Jun 10, 2021


We raised $5,000,000 + from OUR COMMUNITY in 2 months. 

The last two months have been a phenomenal experience.

The morning of April 6, 2021, before I hit send on my first campaign promotion, my heart was racing. 

I couldn’t even sleep the night before because I knew there was no going back.


Overwhelmed with fear, doubt, excitement, I pressed ‘enter’ and the amount raised was instantly jumping by hundreds of thousands with thousands of investors!


In just 4 hours, we reached over $1M raised.


My phone was ringing off the hook. I was in full shock. I couldn’t pry myself away from the screen.


I was blown away by the outpouring of love. Our community believes in us.


After the launch…things started happening fast.


Viola Davis, the queen, reposted our story.


Our BET Her Episode Launched.


Black Enterprise wrote 5 articles celebrating our wins at every milestone.


We went viral on LinkedIn…and on Instagram.


And through it all our community held it down for us, sharing our campaign, advocating for us, and bringing all the love!

 And we got thousands of messages like these....

“Hello❣ I've been following you both since 2016 when I 1st heard of CurlMix. I went natural in 2017, then bought your flax seed gel & fell in love with it!! I've watched you grow from that 1 product. Then you had other different products & you upgraded your packaging... I've just been watching you grow & loved your philosophy!! Then I saw you on Shark Tank in 2018 & that blew my mind!!👌🏽 In my mind, your firm is like Apple, HP, IBM, Redbox or Netflix. I didn't have the ability to invest in those entities, but I can do a little now. I figure if I can buy 30 shares, I'm investing in myself as well as you all, AND people that look like me!!!!💞 I look forward to what the future holds for all of us and CurlMix!!!📿🙏🏽📿 “

The unparalleled success of this raise has shown me one thing above all else…

 Community over everything.


We couldn’t have done it without all of you. Thank you for betting on us.


And now we are at the final stages.


Here’s what you can expect in the next two weeks.



 If you haven’t linked your bank account you will be at risk of losing your reserved spot.

We are currently oversubscribed.

We can only take $5,000,000 and we are currently at $5,170,000 .

This means nearly 1,000 investors who have reserved shares will lose their chance of investing if the other investors provide cash before them. 

Once we close, my hands are tied and there is nothing I can do to ensure that you get in the round.


We will submit the final paperwork and you’ll be asked to link your bank account or submit your investment with a card.


You’ll have a short window to submit your cash investment. If you’ve already done it, you’re all set.


Again, I want to thank you for believing in us and I can’t wait to get started on the work.


Sincerely, Kim
