The History of SCurl - What You Need to Know

With over five decades of experience, Lusters Products have been formulated and reformulated to meet the specialized needs of natural hair care. Designed to make natural hair care easy and cost-effective, Luster has enriched dozens of natural hair solutions catering to the needs of the entire family. We know that men face unique challenges when it comes to the care of their natural curls, waves, locs, and coils which is why we help them to achieve healthy resilience with every formula. SCurl products by Luster Products specifically cater to men and their natural hair care needs. 

Where SCurl Began - Founding Luster Products, Inc. 

Luster Products were founded in 1957 by Fred Luster Sr, a successful barber who took his shop to the next level when he created hair care products specifically formulated to revive natural hair. After using and selling his products in his barbershop, the demand increased as the word spread of his product’s effectiveness. Luster began selling his products to other stylists and barbers and was able to build his start-up company into a multi-million dollar enterprise. 

 “That’s where it all started for them. Let me tell you when I was a kid, I couldn’t wait to get to the barbershop. He had me doing odd jobs and things as a very, very young person; he had values and taught you how to work. But it was just fascinating. You got to remember, during the late '50s, early '60s in Chicago, it was just a wonderful time for us here.” Jory Luster President of Luster Products Inc. For

With the support of his friends, family, and supporters, along with his savvy business mindset, Luster was able to take his modest barbershop and storefront operation to an ever-growing, international business.

What Makes the History of SCurl Such an Important Part of Luster’s Products?

As a reliable name in the haircare market, we have consistently provided highly efficacious hair solutions to curly, kinky, wavy, coiled, and loc’d natural hair.

From scalp care to styling, we consistently provide effective solutions to the complexities of men’s natural hair. Luster Products stand out for all of the right reasons.

What Makes Luster Products & SCurl Stand Out? 

With over 65 years in business, we remain Black-owned and family-owned, and operated. 

As an important part of our community culture, we show our thanks to the communities that have supported us for decades by giving back both domestically and internationally which has become an integral part of our company culture and values. 

We take quality, consistency, and proven efficacy to the next level with our comprehensive Research and Development process. We develop and manufacture all of our proven formulations in-house. We also use our products ourselves and test them extensively before releasing our hair care products to the marketplace via our in-house test salon. 

What started as humble beginnings in a small barbershop in Chicago, turned into a facility in Blue Island, Illinois with products sold in more than 70 countries, along with an office in London that supports all of our international business.
