Return & Exchange Policy


Our policy lasts 14 days. If 14 days have gone by since you received your order, unfortunately we can’t offer you a refund or exchange. For eligible returns, you then have another 14 days for us to receive the items or it will not be processed, even if we receive them after the 14 days. In accordance with Consumer Contracts Regulations, under exemptions ‘tailor made’ and/or ‘broken hygiene seals’, refunds are only available where the item has arrived faulty as a result of a manufacturing fault. We will require evidence of this and will usually ask for the item to be returned for investigation before deciding on a refund. To be eligible for a fault return, your item must be unused and in the same condition and original packaging that you received it. You must also notify us of the fault within 2 days of receipt. Our policy also applies to purchases made via 3rd parties, including where reserved stock has been created specifically for customers of the 3rd party, unless they have specified their own return policies which have been pre-approved by Curls Unearthed.

We also do not accept products that are intimate or sanitary goods, hazardous materials, or flammable liquids or gases. Refunds made outside of our 14 day policy will not be accepted.
