What is a Curl Clinic®?

Curl Clinics ® are a completely bespoke curl consultation service tailored to suit you and your hair. Suitable for all curl types, ages and genders. Specifically designed to suit your hair, budget, lifestyle, and any other requirements you may have.

I’ve done hundreds of Curl Clinics with people from all around the world. Everyone from TV presenters, celebrity makeup artists and news reporters. To midwives, busy working and stay at home moms, personal trainers, students, children and people with active outdoor lifestyles in various climates.

We discuss your hair, your current products and routine, what issues you’re struggling with and what you’d like my help, advice and guidance on, during a 30 minute video consultation.

Focusing on hair health, and using my knowledge, experience and expertise, I put together a complete routine of product recommendations and techniques to help you achieve your hair goals!

Here’s what we’ll cover

Scalp Health
Hair Growth
Hair Type & Porosity
Colour Care & Maintenance
Protein Moisture Balance
Deep Conditioning
Drying & Diffusing
Sleep Protection

After your Curl Clinic you’ll receive:


Curl Clinics are suitable for all curl types, ages and genders. Wavy, curly, coily, coloured and damaged.

You need to have your hair down and dry, it doesn’t matter if it’s freshly washed or not. Whatever way you’d normally style it or how you’d typically wear it. And have all your products, brushes and tools to hand.
Only if you want to. You’ll receive a Curl Clinic Rx with all the details of your full routine and product recommendations, links and discount codes sent to you afterwards via email.
Absolutely! I want you to feel as comfortable as possible so you can get the best out of the experience. I can send you a video and/or audio recording of your Curl Clinic via email if that helps.
No! I developed the Curl Maven Method, which focuses on the health of the hair and is much more suitable to all hair types – even straight!
Curl Clinics are 30 minutes long, just the right amount of time to go through everything.
For now, Curl Clinics are a 30 minute video call online, via Zoom.
No. Curl Clinics are bespoke to each individual, specifically designed to suit each person’s hair goals, needs and other requirements they may have.

Absolutely! What an amazing friend you are! Just use their name and email address when booking.
No! I tailor product recommendations to suit lots of things, including budget and lifestyle. You don’t need to buy expensive products, you just need to buy the right products. I can provide budget alternatives wherever possible.
Yes! I tailor product recommendations to what’s available and in budget for each person’s country.

Meet Gabriella

If this is your first time here, welcome! My name is Gabriella, formerly known as Curly Cailín, now Curl Maven. You can read a little more about that here. I’ve had curly hair all my life. But I didn’t always love, embrace or know how to care for my curls.

I straightened, coloured and damaged my hair until I no longer recognised who was staring back at me in the mirror anymore. I’d lost my curls, and with it my identity and my confidence. It wasn’t until I became a mother, that I realised things needed to change. My young daughter, with her beautiful curls, wanted me to straighten them to look like me. What I was doing with my hair wasn’t in alignment with what I wanted to teach my daughter about hers.

So I started my healthy hair journey to get my curls, my identity and my confidence back. I started a blog and developed what’s now called the Curl Maven Method, very early on. Since then I’ve created a few products, done hundreds of Curl Clinics ® and millions of people have visited this site.

It’s such an honour and a privilege to be a part of so many people’s journeys, from all around the world. It’s not something I take for granted, but something I’m hugely passionate about and grateful I get to do this every day.

I’m so excited you found me, I hope you find my content helpful and that you find inspiration, confidence and empowerment on my site. I can’t wait to work with you!
