My Review

Who doesn't love a good sulfate-free shampoo? If you find the right one for your hair, you may find yourself converting to the no-poo way of life. My kinks and curls really dug this product. I usually only shampoo once and immediately apply conditioner, but this time I decided to wash twice since it's sulfate free. My hair was super soft and happy. The scent is light and fruity, which is a plus for me since I'm not a fan of overpowering products. My only complaint is that the packaging makes me feel like I need a bigger bottle of this stuff. Trust and believe it is a standard 12 fl oz bottle and a little goes a long way. This product is nearly perfect in my books with a 4.5 out of 5 combs!

My Review

I'm a true believer in a leave-in conditioner. It really sets the tone for whatever else I decided to do with my hair, whether it be flat ironing or a twist-out. I used this leave-in conditioner after washing and conditioning with the Curls Unleashed products. It smells like a fruity bubble gum and has a light khaki color too it. Be careful not to lose any product because it can get a bit runny. I applied this leave-in to my hair from root to tip and detangled with a wide tooth comb for even distribution. This product has great slip! The comb just slid right through my hair and my curls began to form immediately. I kept my hair soft and moisturized through the air drying process, but it left a bit of product build-up on my hair. I so those unsightly flakes that make it look as if you have a mild dandruff problem. A little coconut oil sorted that issue out, but as a result I give this great product a 3 1/2 out of 5 combs!

My Review

I believe that this is the category that Organic Root Stimulator really excels in, so I was expecting a lot with their Curls Unleashed Moisturizing Conditioner. I applied the conditioner to my damp hair in the shower evenly from root to tip. I clipped my wet hair up and went about my business in the shower. After about 5 minutes or so I rinsed the conditioner out and ran my wide tooth comb through with the water. Not a kink or knot in site and my hair was buttery soft. The scent of this product is also very fruity and pleasant. Another thing I love about this product is that it can be used as a co-washing conditioner or a deep conditioner. It's thick enough for the latter and behaves well under a hooded dryer. I'm in love and will be adding this product to the rotation. 5 out of 5 combs

My Review

I have a confession to make. I used to be a heavy mousse girl in the beginning of my natural hair journey. I used to grab those heavily alcohol (ethanol) based products and makes those curls pop. It worked really well too, but my hair would be super crunchy and dry until I could wash again in the morning. My eyes nearly popped out of my head when I saw that Curls Unleashed had a mousse. Say what?! Not to worry! Alcohol is the very last ingredient in this mousse and it just so happens to be a fatty alcohol! Hi five for moisturizing and conditioning alcohols. This product is best for people with curl patterns 2 and 3, which is curly and wavy hair. I tried it anyway even though I have more 4a hair than 3c hair. My surprise was popping curls everywhere without the crunch. My hair wasn't as shiny as it usually is with this product though, and I believe that it's best for wash and go's. I don't really do wash and go's since my hair has reached my bra-strap. They just don't work for me anymore. This product really isn't for my hair, but I think it's great compared to it's counterparts on the market. 3 1/2 out of 5 combs!

Ummm...wow! I'm in a relationship with my Set it Off Curl Boosting Jelly. We do like everything together...lol. This product smells like pseudo coconut and looks like gel. I don't do gel! I do this jelly though. Do you want your twist-outs, bantu knot-outs and any other style to shine and freaking define?! Yes! Get your life together and get this styling aid.

My Review

The Curl Defining Creme is super thick and exactly what you need if you like to set your hair when it's wet, but hate the shrinkage that comes with wet sets. This creme is great for flexi-rod sets, twist-outs ,bantu knot-outs and two strand twists on wet hair. It's a bit too heavy for my hair, so this huge 16oz jar will last a long time since I plan to use a little at a time. If you have very kinky or course hair and want to manipulate it to do exactly what you want, get this creme! It has a light fruit scent to it and is very creamy. It keeps the hair moisturized for a long time. It's a great product! 4 out of 5 combs!

My Review

Second and third day hair is the goal of all kinky, curly and wavy hair girls. you want to be able to rock your style for multiple days without it looking like a hot mess. Second Chance Curls is supposed to give that to you, but it left my hair crunchy and a bit sticky. I don't like it at all. I had to jump into the shower to co-wash and reset my hair. That pretty much defeated the purpose for me. I think this product should be in a spray bottle and possibly diluted a bit. I may try to do this myself, because the product as it is does me zero good. It smells great though! 2 out of 5 combs!


**I will be reviewing the Second Chance Curl Refresher later on after diluting it and transferring to a spray bottle.



I'm loving 5 out of the 7 products of this range. It's available at select Clicks around the country. There is a lot to choose from, and I am confident that there is something here for everyone.
Well Done, Curls Unleashed!



Have a Good Hair Day!!!
