Crown Pride Curl Control Styling Gel Update

I came across Crown Pride when an English curly posted a link to a site that sold products inEngland. And of course, I wanted it. It is like Pink Boots, unattainable which makes me lust for it more. So, yep, I bought it. And knowing my luck it will be the 'one' and I will go broke paying for a product + shipping from England. Yep, go figure.



It's called curl control styling gel and it has a lot of ingredients my hair loves:

Ingredients: Aqeous extracts of **Calendula officinalis (organic calendula) flowers, **Althaea officinalis (organic marshmallow) root, **Lavandula augustofilia (organic lavender), *+Dehydroxanthan gum, **Honey (organic honey), Helianthus annus (and) Beta Carotene (carrot tissue) oil, *Panthenol, Phenoxyethanol (and) Caprylyl glycol.

Well you'll just have to marry one of the young princes and move to the UK.

When are you expecting it to arrive?

Products
This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.
I saw that line awhile ago, heard it was okay.

Update!!

I got this over the weekend and I have used it 3-4 times. I like it but it is not earthshattering - thank goodness - so I will not have to get a 2nd job to support my habit.

It's an odd looking product. Orangey/brown which I am assuming is from the carrot ingredient. It smells good though and it's not sticky or tacky. It is like a cross between a gel/butter/cream. It is in a tub and it would be too thick for a bottle. I am getting very nice curl from it and good volume so I am not sad that I spent the $ on it. The instructions say to use a small amount on wet hair. I always figure that most companies want you to overuse their product so when one says small I believe them!! So I was using a dime sized amount emulsified in my hands then scrunched in with good results. Today I used a bit more - nickel sized- with better results. I just used SS curl jelly over it and diffused. I have really good volume and almost could say root curl. It has some hold on it's own so with that and the jelly I feel like I have good hold. The other times I used it with DOC or SS Jelly mixed with BHRG. So while it is a keeper I will probably not re-order just because of shipping etc. But this should last me quite some time so that is good!

I've always wanted to try Crown Pride, but the lack of reviews always discouraged me. I might have to think about ordering some next go-round, though... sounds interesting.

I agree the ingredients are not different but my hair really likes some of them - marshmallow, honey (in small doses) and the panthenol. And, my hair looked really good all day yesterday. So while not something I would order again because of the shipping, etc. I really like it and it should last me for quite some time.
