Curls and Curly Q Milkshake

After having contacted Mahisha regarding whether Curls Milkshake truly had been reformulated, she says that this product was NEVER REFORMULATED at all! She said that it is the same version as before.

The only two products that have been reformulated was Curls Whipped Cream and Curl Souffle. And Curls Spiral Cream just a fragrance change.

So these are all of the new developments that have actually occurred with Curls products that I personally know to be true.

I love Mahisha's products and her fast, friendly responses, but I do wish they've leave some of the stuff alone or just offer a choice in scents.

With all the stuff I use on my hair: condish, styling/moisture lotion, hold gel, lavender mist (2nd/3rd day) and curl revivor spray products (2nd/3rd day) that's at least THREE different scents on top of eachother and they don't always compliment!

And let's not forget my body lotion, deodorant and perfume (for a special occassion.)

Yes, the new version of Curls Spiral Curl Cream has the same scent of Curls Asian Asian Hair Tea, but in a smaller amount. I was one of those people who did not like the first scent of it very much and did voice my opinion to the owner of Curls about her needing to come out with a fragrance free version of this stuff, but in the end it just wasn't meant to be unfortunately. Like so many others of you out there that have smelled Spiral Curls Cream in the past, I too would have preferred that this product just have been made into a fragrance free product. Or if it could have even been scented to smell like Curls Whipped Cream & Souffle that would have been alright with me too.

I never saw anything about the scent being changed and what it would smell like - if I had I would have never gotten it. I think I'll write her and let her know that I'm not happy with the scent and with not being warned about the new scent (at least I didn't notice any notice about it).

I've had someone PM me that they'd like it if I decide to sell it as she swapped away her original scent one because she couldn't tolerate it.

Well, since I have chest-length hair and usually keep it free & open, I get a lot of whiffs of whatever scent is on my hair. (My hair is eveywhere!! )

I don't mind a little bit of a scent, but nothing too strong or weird. Some scents just don't mix well.... or the manufacturer things we want to smell like bubble gum or watermelon candy. (I apologize to whomever likes those scents. )

I'm currently using Suava Coconut and Suave Vanilla Condishes and their scent lingers lightly. Besides.... I use body lotion that have similar scents.... so that works well for me.

But - of course - now that winter is here and I need more products to combat dryness........ :x

Yesterday, I send an email to the Curls company in regards to the Curls and Curly Q Milkshake products.

Here the e-mail text I send:

I have a questions regarding your Curls Milkshake and Curly Q Milkshake
products. According to your site's ingredients list, both contain beeswax
milk. I've heard of beeswax in hair care products, but never of beeswax
milk. What is it and how is it produced? - I've also heard that you have
changed ingredients of some of your products. Are the Milkshakes amongst them? Are the ingredients lists on your site current?


Here is their reply:

Yes the ingredient list is current and correct.

Beeswax milk is the hydro and lipophilic fluid that is captured between the honey and the beeswax. It is a great emulsifier and contains cholesterol and sphingo lipids, which are proven to repair damaged hair.


Now I wonder if this beeswax milk is water soluble or needs a surfectant to be removed?!

I just re-ordered the CurlyQ version thinking it was the same old ingredients but I just went on the Curls site and apparently the Curlyq milkshake ingredients have changed too! This is so weird. I too would like to know if it cause product build up or is CG-friendly. The old version did not; I could use it for 3-4 days, adding a little more each day before co-washing

Well I had to let everyone know that the ingredient listing for Spiral Curls Cream has changed too. I just found this out when I went to the Curls website. Here's the new ingredient listing:

Purified water, glycerin, emulsifying wax N.F., polyimide-1, sunflower oil, aloe barbedenis leaf juice, cetearyl alcohol, ceteareth-20, octyl palmitate, silk protein, sodium carbomer, guar hydroxypropyl, trimonium chloride, panthenol, shea butter, wheat germ oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil, amodimethicone, dimethicone, sodium benzoate, potassium benzoate, ethyl hexyl glycerin, fragrance.

I have not tried this new Curls Spiral Curl Cream or this Curls Milkshake(with a different ingredient listing) that you see on the Curls Website. I only knew of the Curls Whipped Cream and Curls Souffle having their ingredients changed. So this has totally taken me by surprise too!

For anyone who has any questions or concerns regarding Curls products, please don't hesitate to contact the owner, Mahisha. As she is always available to answer to questions regarding her products, whenever the need arises.

This is what they wrote me:

Hydrophilic means water soluble.
Having an affinity for water; readily absorbing or dissolving in water.

I wrote to her just now asking about the changes and letting her know that several people are concerned.

One question though I thought we were not allowed to post emails in the forum, have the rules changed?

ETA* Just curious cause I remeber someone telling me that when i posted an email from the kinky-curly owner

Emulsifying wax N.F. is not actually a wax and is not a problem for those on C-G.

I just e-mailed Gretchen to ask her to give me info on the posting rules. I've tried to find them on the boards, but couldn't. Maybe she will post them here.... or I will, as soon as I hear back from her.
