You may have seen the buzz around the internet about the latest product line for curly girls called Curlsmith. Curlsmith is a gourmet haircare brand that was made for curly girls. The product line launched in March and was created in collaboration with trichologists, hair stylists, beauty experts, and consumers inspired from home recipes and remedies with natural ingredients. Curlsmith collaborated with curly girls and experts through the entire process of creating the product line. Everyone in the process was involved in making decisions on everything from the ingredients to the packaging. The formulas were tried and tested by hundreds of our curly girls.I recently tried out the line for myself, and I was impressed. The good thing about Curlsmith is that they use only the best clean ingredients. Curlsmith has no Sulfates, Parabens, Silicones, Mineral Oils, Phthalates, DEA and is also vegan and cruelty-free.
Here are my thoughts on the products.
Curlsmith wants you to know that this is not a traditional foaming shampoo. This product is a gentle yet lightweight formula that works hard to remove buildup and dirt from your hair. Blended with Andiroba to help to restore shine and provide moisture.
I am not big on co-washing my hair but, I was impressed that I was able to detangle easily after using this product. My hair felt soft after just one use. I will use this product again.
The Curl Conditioning Oil-In-Cream is a rich leave-in conditioner that is perfect for any length. Curlsmith says it won't flake and it is also non-greasy. The Curl Conditioning Oil--In Cream is made with organic Carrot, olive and aloe vera oils to provide your hair with extra strength, moisture, and shine.
I thought it was a very lightweight conditioner that did what it said it would do. It left my hair feeling very soft and manageable.
This serum is very versatile and helps to give your hair shine while also making it soft and manageable. This serum contains Oats to help enhance the elasticity of your hair and also Macadamia to help protect your hair against damage.
A little goes a long way with this serum. It comes in a solid form, so you have to melt it before putting it on your hair. I used it as the oil in my LOC method, and it did make my hair soft, and I felt that it penetrated through my hair which is good for those with low-porosity hair.
The Souffle is a styling souffle that is made to help give your hair definition while not weighing it down. Curlsmith says that it is suitable for wash and go’s, braid outs and twist outs and it won’t leave your hair crunchy. It is infused with Babassu oil to give moisture and flax seed to define curls.
At first, I was a little scared of the consistency of this souffle. It didn't appear like it would penetrate into my hair and I was scared that it would just sit on top. To my surprise, it melted in my hands, and I applied it just like any other styler I would use. It gave my hair tons of definition and did not leave any residue.
