I have straight brown hair and my son has curly blond hair! People are always asking me where he came from! I just love his curls and so does his father but since I don't have curls myself I really didn't know how to take care of it. His hair was getting to the point where I decided to have it cut short because the curls were so matted in the back when he woke up every morning. But his father said not to cut it so I decided to seek professional help.
I found CURLS in my online search for help. Curls products have rave reviews but what's more, they use natural ingredients that I love. Curls use organic oils and quality ingredients, such as aloe leaf juice, panthenol, mango, shea and murmur butter is what set them apart in my mind. Curls is a company created by a bi-racial woman searching for the solution for her hair care needs and Curls caters to the unique needs of today's multi-ethnic market. I love people that have a vision and go for it and I figured if it worked for her curls it would probably work for my little boy's curls.
Curls has an page their website that helps you determine your hair type and suggests products just for you! My son's hair type is "full bodied, climate dependent (humidity = frizz), and damage prone. Lack of proper care renders dull curls." This was very true. He has his bath at night to help calm him down and by the morning his curls were tangled in the back and straightened in the front- very dry and breaking. I was using a detangler but the results were just ok.
I received a sample kit from Curls that included a Curly Q's product instruction sheet, 2oz sample sizes of Curlie Cutie Cleansing Cream, Coconut Dream Conditioner, Moist Curls Moisturizer, and Curly B Gel-les-c all in a pretty silk organza bag. All of the Curls hair products we tried smell great- and all naturally from their quality ingredients! The kit looked good so I put it to the test.
First, I cleansed his hair (with their sulfate free cleanser) and conditioned it. I brushed it while the conditioner was in like as suggested by Curls. He came out with his ringlets and then I used the moisturizer spray. I finished up with the Gel-les-c and I have to say I was a little nervous about this last step because I don't like the way gel leaves hair all crunchy. It turns out though that Gel-les-c isn’t a gel. This botanically based, organic curl styler imparts brilliant sheen, banishes frizz, and holds those twirls in place without the crunch!
I absolutely loved these products! They really transformed my son's hair and help it meet it's potential- soft, shiny and silky ringlets! Another fabulous part to these products is that results last. I don't wash Leo's hair every night and I was pleased to see that the use of the 4 products already minimized tangles big time even with skipping the wash for a night or two. Now I can use the Moist Curls Moisturizer in the mornings to restore his curls from frizzy to cute. Formulated with certified organic ingredients, this daily curl moisturizer improves comb-ability and restores his curls. I am very pleased with the results and thankful that his hair is now manageable and I can let it grow a little more if I want! Here are before and after shots.
I am very pleased with the products I tried from Curls and I recommend them to anyone with curls. I will be a repeat customer as long as little Leo has curls! You can check out all the products including their adult, baby, and kids line at CURLS. Special READER DISCOUNT:
