CURLS Founder Mahisha Dellinger Is Living Her Vision Board Dreams After Landing Her OWN Series

Business

The power of manifestation is real, and if you need any proof, just ask Mahisha Dellinger.


The South Sacramento, California native took her start-up natural and organic hair care line CURLS and turned it into a multi-million-dollar empire. Growing up in poverty led Dellinger to find her way out of the challenges her early life presented and she pursued a college degree. She entered the corporate world and spent time working with Intel until she eventually stepped out on faith and launched her hair care line back in 2002.

16 years later and Mahisha Dellinger is the "Curl Queen" whose business has inspired many of the other natural hair "gurus" we see today.

This all came to form with the help of a vision board. She knew the life that she wanted and painted a picture to help it manifest. Now, she's using her high profile business partnerships and widespread platform to help other women do the same thing.

Leaving Corporate America back in 2002 for the business world was a major step to take in and of itself, but to do so during a time where the natural hair movement didn't quite have the market it has now was an even bolder move. Sometimes the best ideas are born out of pure necessity, and Dellinger once told Curls Understood that her decision to make the transition into starting her own business was based on needing products for her own natural hair journey and not being able to find them. She says:

I was natural looking for products and couldn't find many options. I didn't want jheri curl juice and I didn't want a relaxer! So CURLS was born out of pure need and I knew there must be other women searching for curly hair products too.

Having launched her business before the Instagram and Facebook businesses of today, Dellinger used her marketing and business background and hit the pavement the old fashioned way. Increasing her brand's visibility came with its own set of hurdles, but eventually through hard work and determination, her CURLS products landed on the shelves of major retailers like Target, Walmart, and major beauty supply stores.

No doubt many people took notice of Dellinger's rise to success, so much so that it was recently revealed that she will be starring in her own show on the OWN network. In today's world where Black female entrepreneurship is rising at a rapid pace, this show couldn't come at a better time.

Mind Your Business with Mahisha will follow Dellinger as she mentors, coaches, and aids other female entrepreneurs in their pursuit of taking their businesses to "the next level." Because even though Black women are the fastest-growing group of entrepreneurs, we are still faced with a different set of challenges and nuances that people of other demographics don't necessarily have to deal with. The show will begin airing on August 11, following Iyanla: Fix My Life and is produced by Irwin Entertainment.

Dellinger made the announcement on her personal Instagram page, and in her post, she references using vision boards on a yearly basis. And wouldn't you know it, one of the constant visions she had for herself was to one day appear on The Oprah Winfrey Show. Now that she is getting her OWN show on Oprah's OWN network, who are we to doubt the true power of manifestation? Her vision board became a reality, literally. Won't He do it!

"Years back, "Be on the Oprah Winfrey Show" had a permanent position on my yearly vision board. God said, "I'll do you one better!" I am proud to say I have my own show on @owntv, pardon the pun! 😜 "

Based on the trailer, the hour-long show will get down to the nitty gritty, with Dellinger inspiring these women to greatness without mincing words and coddling feelings. In a world where so many see the fruits of success without the real grind and determination it takes to get there, Mind Your Business with Mahisha will be a welcomed look into the real meaning of what it means to be an entrepreneur.

Thanks to Oprah and the OWN network, we'll be able to take notes ourselves to fine-tune our own businesses and brands.

Whew. The more that I read, write and talk about sex, the more I realize that there will never be a time when I’ll learn all that there is to know. And honestly, that’s kind of what I like so much about it — sex has got layers and layers and even more layers to it. So, let’s use that to our advantage in 2022 by making this the year that we’re absolutely determined to have some of the best sex EVER, starting with implementing some monthly themes; ones that can help us to experience more when it comes to how we see ourselves, how to please our partner and how to enjoy sex on a whole ‘nother level!
