Option 1 and 5 both apply. It has been non stop controversy with this line and owner since the introduction. I personally liked two of the products but due to inaccuracy of ingredients, negative interactions with the owner and reading threads about the products, would never buy them again.
As noted in one of the NC.com articles, the number of products for curly hair has grown immensely in the past few years. I can't believe how the list has grown just on Curlmart. There are many, many more options than Curls. It has been easily replaced for me. There are lots of consistent product lines and great owners (Jess (Jessicurl), Kelly (MopTop) Lorraine (Devacurl) and the owner of Curl Junkie). These woman are all striving to produce a consistent quality product with no mystery surrounding them.
