Sample pack at SweetCurls Elixir

Like Tree11Likes

Hey all, I think I am going to order a sample pack at SweetCurls Elixir and was wondering if any had tried the stuff and what you think. My idea right now is the following:

Formulas for hair type FSG Elixir (Formula 2)
SweetCurls Elixir Curl Cream
SweetCurls Okra Defining Gel
SweetCurls Conditioning Elixir

I was originally going to try the all the above except okra and instead have another conditioner with some protein added, but decided I think I want to try the okra gel. I am also wondering about fragrance. My hubby loves the smell of coconut and would have me wear the tropicana tanning spray if I would, so I was thinking coconut creme or coconut? Then again French Vanilla sounds good too? Anyone tried these products and/or fragrances?

My hair properties as best I can tell are fine (but lots of it), low porosity, not chemically treated (except the ends where I am growing out red color) 2a. I really want to tame the frizz and that is the main objective. I like the beachy wavy type look, so not really worried about enhancing curl.
There is at least one Sweet Curls Elixirs thread on this board. Some products are new so you will mainly have had Alissa's testers trying them.

There are various mini reviews (largely rave) on the Facebook Wavy Hair Community, more customers than post on NC. You may also find comments on the Etsy feedback and SCE Facebook page.

HTH!

Asian Pear scent is Devine.

If you like hard hold I'd maybe switch one out for that. For sure you have to try the FSG.

Checking back in on this after I've used them a couple of times.... WOW. I'm in love.

I've used the conditioner, then FSG, then the Hard Hold gel. My hair looks great. I had pretty decent THIRD day hair yesterday just smoothing a bit of the curl cream on my canopy for frizzies.

I'm noticing significantly less frizz already. I have a Devacut scheduled for Saturday and I think I'm going to have her take off a couple of inches because my last stylist used thinning shears, which I think is hurting my clumping.

YAY!

I got my package in the mail yesterday, finally! I looked at it this morning, and not only was it the wrong order, but it wasn't even my name on the invoice! And the papers she included wreaked with smoke. I'm kind of put off a bit...

That's super unfortunate and surprising. I'm sure if you message her, she'll get back to you quickly.

I got mine in the mail yesterday too. I haven't gotten to try it out yet though, but I am in love with the Whiskey Angel scent!

I did email her and asked her what she could do to make it right. I was so disappointed, I was really looking forward to trying my products out. I included a picture of the products I received and the invoice. Still awaiting a response, hopefully I will hear something soon.

I've opened my box finally and I have my correct order yay!

I tried the flax seed curl cream and wasn't a fan. It also made my ears a little itchy/burny. Also, they smell really weird.. I guess it's the scent of the other ingredients/preservatives. I chose essential oils for scent, because fragrance can irritate my skin. I guess I should've chosen the fragrance after all - a tip for future orders. Can't wait to try my others!
