Curlin is India's one of the first mass premium hair care brand for curly and wavy hair.

Here's the excerpts from eChai with Sumit Karranji, Founder, Curlin as part of our startup showcase series.

About the team

Sumit Karranji is a 2X entrepreneur and is the founder of Curlin. 

Prior to this he had built a SaaS startup for payment reconciliation of marketplace sellers which got acquired by Vinculum (Accel Funded Startup). 

He also serves on the mentor panel of IMPunjab, iTIC-IITH, AISEA, GUSEC, GTU, CIIE, IIMA where he gives back to the startup community by mentoring early stage startups.

Eureka Moment

60% of Indians have wavy or curly hair and there is no dedicated hair care range for them. I found this as a big gap being a curly haired person myself and also being into the ecomm space since a decade.

How does it work?

Business model

We sell through our own website, marketplaces and salon channels.


We have 5000+ customers across 240 cities in India in our pre-revenue stage. 

We have raised $250k from angels and seed investors.

Community support

Looking for brainstorming on creating communities and innovative marketing ideas from the community.
