Kinky-Curly Curling Custard

Jun 02, 2011 - This product is amazing! I had been meaning to try it for some time so when I spotted it at whole foods I snatched it up. As soon as I got it home, I could not resist playing with it on my dry hair. Obviously it did not distribute as evenly as it would on wet hair, but it soothed my frizz and softened my strands immediately. Several reviews warned against using too much product so for the first use on wet hair I followed the recommended instructions and finger combed a small dollop through, scrunched, and air-dried. While my hair was shiny and smooth, my curls were limp and stringy. For the second use on wet hair I followed my instincts and my usual hair routine. I co-washed my hair (with my head tilted forward), rinsed with cold water, and gently detangled with a wide-toothed comb. Then I scrunched in about 3 tablespoons of the curling custard. I allowed my hair to air dry, gently scrunched out the crunch, and was left with gorgeously defined, voluminous, soft, & frizz-free curls that resulted in equally amazing second-day hair. The heavenly vanilla scent reminds me of cupcakes and smells good enough to eat (and normally I'm not big on dessert fragrances). The texture is a bit weird to get used to (um...kind of like...snot?) but easily glides over strands and coats evenly. There is absolutely no tackiness, stickiness, or other grossness after scrunching out the crunch...just beautiful curls... <3 I love the jar :) no messing with tubes or pumps or spritzers! Oh, and the ingredients are great and cruelty-free! You may have to experiment a bit to get your technique for this product just right but for me it was totally worth it- holy grail product!

Beautiful Curls Beautiful Curls Curl Activating Shea Butter Leave-In Conditioner

Apr 23, 2011 - I used this product for the first time today so I'm not sure how my curls will respond long term but after the first use my curls were soft and tangle-free. I have used the deva curl line for the last 8 months with good results but recently I noticed my hair seems a little dry (I believe this is due to a reformulation of the deva curl one-condition). I discovered the beautiful curl line at the local health food store and thought I’d try it out. I simply used a palm-full in the shower to massage my scalp and detangle. After scrunching out the excess moisture I scrunched in another small palm-full. Even after one use I noticed a moisture boost. My one complaint is the natural raspberry fruit and ylang ylang scent which smells like something akin to cough syrup.

DevaCurl B'Leave-In

Apr 13, 2011 - I can’t say I’ve experimented enough with this product to say I dislike it. However, used according to Deva’s recommendations (after One Condition, before styling products) it seems to promote frizz over time. It did boost my 2C-3A curls but I seem to get better results using Set It Free.
