Sometimes you just want your curls to pop. Yeah, your hair feels moisturized and its shiny, but the cherry on top is your curls looking on point -- and that they stay popping. That’s exactly what I was looking for with Curl Theory. Curl Theory’s products are focused on hydration as the “building block of healthy hair”, while maintaining curl definition --- and with some products, we have to sacrifice one for the other. When I was introduced to Curl Theory, I was in desperate need of a curl revival -- and some of these products definitely delivered!
It’s hard to find a good shampoo for natural hair. My problem is that I have a lot of product buildup and a dry scalp, so I look for a shampoo that cleanses well, while providing moisture. This time around, I was looking for moisture because it had been over a week since I’d washed my hair and I didn’t use a lot of products during that week. While my hair felt clean, it felt more moisturized than anything. For the future, I’ll probably use this product when I’m looking for some moisturization, rather than cleansing.
Because I have Type 4 hair, a deep conditioner is my best friend. I can’t go a week without it, or else my hair is dry, tangly, and my curls aren’t popping. I was looking forward to this conditioner, especially because it has ingredients like shea butter and jojoba oil, which are great for locking in moisture into those locks --- and the Curl Theory Super Deep Conditioner delivered. I left it on my hair for about 45 minutes, and after washing it out, my hair felt soft and moisturized --- which made it easy to dentangle! I’m definitely going to grab this product next time I wash my hair.
I’m a big proponent of Leave-In conditioner for my hair, because it needs all the moisture it can get. This product has ingredients like castor oil and aloe vera, which can help maximize moisture. I thought this Leave-In definitely delivered in terms of moisture, but didn’t leave my hair weighed down like some other leave-in conditioners do. It also made my hair easy to detangle a second time after using the deep conditioner.
Here’s the thing about my hair: it doesn’t like gel. I’ve tried a variety of gel based products, and while my curls has looked defined, it’s left my hard and dried out --- so I was hesitant about using the styler. After adding this product to my hair, I let it sit for an hour to see if I would experience the same thing. This product actually ended up doing the opposite for me, it left my curls moisturized, I didn’t notice a huge difference in definition.
This is the standout product for me. The final step of my wash day routine was twisting my hair up with this product. When applying the product onto my hair, it felt lightweight and didn’t weigh my hair down like a lot of other styling creams I use --- but a little goes a long way with this product. I added the cream and twisted my hair into 10 twists and let them dry overnight. The result: Probably one of the best looking twistouts I’ve ever had. My hair felt incredibly soft, but my curls looked amazing! Half way through the day, I checked out my curls and they were still looking as good as I woke up! Typically, I would have to do a mini twistout after a day in the humidity, but with the Multi-Style Hair Cream, I won’t need to manipulate my hair at all. I’m definitely adding this cream to my styling routine!
Final Result: My curls not only looked good, but my hair felt incredibly soft — even on the second day!
