While in my fav spot to look for all things natural, Whole Foods, I noticed a new line of products by the familiar name of Queen Helene called “Royal Curl” (RC). At first I was very skeptical, as I just promised myself to be rid my product junkie tendencies. PLUS, I only came to replenish some of my Kinky-Curly (KC) products; and that was IT, nothing else!
But I thought about Queen Helene’s products used in the past (i.e., Cholesterol Conditioner) and the amazing results I’ve had going back to college, and maybe even before that! The price was reasonable so I snatched a tub of the Curl Shaping Creme (see link for ingredients) and kept it moving. BUT, not before I also grabbed my Kinky Curly’s Tiny Twirls Styler; love that stuff. I knew I wanted a Big Hair weekend and thought I’d give my BBH the “Royal” treatment, or at least that is how I rationalized it.
At home we washed and conditioned as usual (post coming soon on our updated washing routine) and even though I cracked opened the RC Curl Shaping Creme, I had my good ol’ faithful KC’s Custard right next to it in case things took a wrong turn, trust! First let me elaborate on the following:
- Price: THE PRICE SOUNDS NOICE (check 1, lol!). For a 15oz tube, you can NOT beat the price of 7.99.
- Smell: Pretty straight. Nothing too overpowering. But you can tell it has some ‘juices and berries’ going on…
- Consistency: Something similar to the KC’s Custard, but a tad thicker and more opaque.
Go’Head Baby, Be Curly!
