You donít have to worry about a white residue or greasy after affect Ė perfect for wearing a 2 strand twist style right out the salon! Coco Curls is made with all natural ingredients, that combine to nourish and strengthen natural hair.

Ingredients:

Aloe Vera Juice, Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil, Coconut Oil, Cetearyl Olivate and Sorbitan Olivate, Hydroxypropyl trimonium Honey, Lactobacillus Ferment, Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil (and) Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf Extract, Dehydroxanthan Gum, Fragrance Oils.


Im not sure if they are still doing it but I received $20% off for signing up for email subscriptions for my first order. I did receive a card with my replacement jar of Cococurls saying if you like their FB page you will receive 20% off an order.


I purchased my item as you know in Feb, used it once and discovered it had mold. I received my replacement product today, so I can say customer service has been reasonable for myself.

Heres a review I found from Mae

Thumbs up

This worked great for me. I got a free jar at a natural hair event and used it all up in 2 months, that's how much I love it. It has a nice creaminess to it, leaves my hair feeling soft & touchable and gives me great definition--I can go 2 days without retwisting. I wish it came in other scents as the original is a bit pungent for me, but it wears off shortly so that's a small price to pay IMO.

I wonder why this doesn't make my hair crunchy. I've used it as a refresher and I end up with soft nice hair for a day or two. I messed around and tried Donna Marie's Hair Whip in the same fashion (as a refresher over Njoi's Green Tea Cream) and I didn't make it to the office good before my hair was feeling like straw.

What kind of coconuts are they using over there?!?!

Got a jar at the WNHS.

Does crap as a solo styler, but it's hyped up Shealoe so I could've predicted that with my hair. I need MUCH more control and structure in my WnG's, but it does lend a lot of moisture, so I used it as a LI under Fantasia IC and WHAM! Soft, bouncy curls.

Today (day 3) I didn't need to, but I used some as a moisturizer and mannn.... it's nice.

For the price? I could do better. ElastaQP has crappy ingredients in their Mango butter but my hair acts happily strung out on it.

Anyway...PIC!

Here's day 1 pics.

This gel cream looks good. Looks like she's combining the softness and conditioning from jojoba, coconut and olivem 1000 (the emulsifier Cetearyl Olivate and Sorbitan Olivate--which is the same emulsifier that QB uses for the amla and olive cream). The gum is there for hold, but there may be little hold because of all the moisture from the honequat and the emulsifier.

Hmmm, I would try this, but the no preservative makes me stop

Love, unfortunately, doesn't prevent spoilage. In fact, love hastens spoilage....Love is blind, it will take over your cream because it can't see the germs...

I shoulda stopped too. But I was at the hair show, and the hype was high and my sense...kinda low. I haven't used it on freshly shampooed hair. I only used it to refresh a braidout - rebraided hair with other product already in it. It worked very nice. My hair was soft and fluffy.

I bought the big ole' jar too, and I've been checkin' everyday, for little green men.

LOL Nea!

Maybe she uses a preservative and doesn't list it? I'm really failing to see, if all these companies are "researching" to make these products, how they miss the part that a preservative is necessary, not an option. It doesn't leave me with a good impression

And, you won't see the little green men until there are MILLIONS of them.

My love hasn't spoiled on me yet. I love this stuff as a moisturizer though and if she gets the preservative thing together, I will def repurchase. It's better than BeeMine LBMC and just as good as MJ BBC or CBC without the heavy smell.

I tried a small section in the back as a leave in prior to doing a WnG. I didnt like the fact that it wasnt absorbing and I didnt feel like waiting so I used something else.


I think this would work best as a moisturizer/ refresher or twists/braids styles
