Curls Blueberry Bliss Reparative Leave in Conditioner and Twist-N-Shout Cream
Well, I used these two to style my hair in a twistout, and the results are shown in the video attached. My friends, The leave-in conditioner takes the price in this pairing. It’s a perfect duo, but the leave-in is bae. After the above mentioned process, I applied the leave-in conditioner. This product effortlessly melts into your hair especially when wet. As you apply it your fingers easily run through your strands. It too has slip and you can further detangle as you style. You can apply an oil and stop there or then apply a styling product after the oil. I chose the Twist-N-Shout cream. This product is rich and creamy that i found myself trying to use less as i was afraid it would create a dull cast on my hair. On some sections I used a lot and on some sections I was stingy. There was a difference.
The strands that I carelessly coated with an abundance of product were less frizzy as I unravelled my twists but there was no difference in the amount of shine. From this I decided that you should freely saturate your strands with the product for a frizz free curl. Don’t go overboard, but don’t get stingy neither. In the video you will see a visual of my application process and results. Before we move on, these two both come in 8 oz packaging and the leave-in costs $12 and the cream costs $15. These prices seem fair to me considering the price range of natural products currently. I would love the leave-in to come in a 16 oz though because I love it so much, I find myself using it a lot. And I am heavy handed with this one, it just feels so good guys and my hair eats it up. Who am I to deny my hair?
Curls Blueberry Bliss Curl Control Jelly and Blueberry & Coconut Hair Milk
If you have been rocking with me for a while you know that 2017 has been my wash and go season. So of course trying these two out on my hair was exciting for me. I do have a video review of the jelly as I used it to style my wash and go so you know the deal, watch it. This jelly comes in an 8oz bottle and I can’t believe I’m not complaining. I have used it 3 times for a wash and go and it is still on level 2 thirds. Whaaaaaaaaat!!! Even when I feel like I’m using a lot, it turns out I’m not. it just multiplies when it leaves the bottle I guess. I was going to complain about the packaging as I would rather it comes in a jar I can just scoop out of but I think maybe this bottle is best for some of us who have no control. Hmmm.
I’m torn because I found it annoying having to struggle squeezing the bottle as I went in for another application because my hands were slippery. This could be fixed by an open top container. But again, this squeeze out bottle helps regulate product usage. For my wash and go style I decided to pair the jelly with the hair milk. It’s a thicker consistency than the leave-in but lighter than the cream. This product easily absorbed into my hair while it was wet and took a little longer when dry. It’s a product that provides moisture to to the hair and is great to use on it’s own or right before applying the cream or jelly. I was able to lightly detangle my hair with it too. The jelly costs $18 for 8 oz and the hair milk costs $15 for 8oz. It’s perfect to use to refresh your style like when you are at day 3 of a twistout and don’t want to use a heavy cream
Curls Blueberry Bliss Curl Control Paste
The curl control paste ummm, leaves a lot to be desired. Listen, when i see these little jars I immediately think edge tamer. This works best on either wet or dry hair but baybay, ain’t no long term edge taming happening.
I have used it on wet, dry, stretched and curly hair and it will not keep my edges down. I do like using it to sleek down and smooth my buns and pulled back styles including flat twists though. It does a great job at that. I love the consistency of the paste because it is not as hard and tough as other edge taming products. It is smooth and easy to apply (maybe that’s why it doesn’t work), but I’ll take it. The paste costs $12 for 4 oz.
Curls Aloe & Blueberry Curl Moisturizer
To be honest I have mostly used this product on my son. I tried refreshing my twistout and my wash and go but i think i messed up by not adding a styling product with it as my styles did not look right. On my son however, I love it. This product costs $13 and the consistency is of a thick liquid. I do have a problem with the way it squirts out of the pump. I wish it came out as a spritz more that a squirt because I’m having to squirt it into my hands then applying it onto my hair. I would rather spray it directly to my strands. I do love the juicy look his hair has after applying it.
Here is a before and after shot of his hair. The first one from the left is the before shot where his hair is somewhat dry. The next two have been revived and look extra juicy.
I will be coming back with a review on the Curls Blueberry & Mint Tea Scalp Treatment plus the Curls Blueberry Bliss Hair Growth Oil. I like to use oils for about two months before i actually review them so stay tuned. I also have not tried the vitamins but this video here can give you some info on them till I come to you with one.
What will I be re-purchasing and what gets the boot?
I am definitely in love with the mask, leave-in and wash. Those are definite re-purchases. I do love the jelly but i will purchase that on sale because dude, the price!
I am ok with going without the twisting cream and the hair milk.
I am definitely never buying the curl control paste and the curl moisturizer.
That’s it. See ya soon 😉
