Yee-Yeah! How’s it fro’in ya’ll?? OK, so one of our BBH parents posted about Curls Unleashed by Organic Root Stimulator on our FaceBook Wall wondering if I was familiar with it (shout out to Mommy Gretchen!). Well, I was not and put it on my “to try” product junkie list. I’m already a fan of the Organic Root Stimulator Replenishing Pak. Sure enough that following weekend while taking a walk about in Walgreens (lawd I can never walk in, get what I need and be out, HHhhhhhh..the devil) and there it was just begging for someone to take it home. After much deliberation (cuz I had a budget to stick to), I decided on the Take Control™ Curl Defining Creme. Alrighty then, let get to it shall we? First a little something about this new line of natural haircare products (from the Curls Unleased web site):
Curls Unleashed™ is a full line of products to help prep, style and maintain your natural curls. Made especially for naturalistas, our products do not contain sulfates, mineral oil or SD alcohol. Curls Unleashed™ products and are made with natural ingredients like safflower oil, sweet almond oil, and shea butter to help deliver the moisture and curl definition your natural curls crave but without the crunch or flakes. Curls Unleashed™ is for every natural woman: wavy; curly; kinky.
After reviewing the list of ingredients, I was pleased to see that the first listed were natural!!! O_O! So did not expect that in Walgreens. Whole Foods? Yeah, but not your local drugstore. So bravo for that! Check it:
Ingredients: AQUA (WATER), COCOS NUCIFERA (COCONUT) OIL, BUTYROSPERMUM PARKII (SHEA BUTTER), CARTHAMUS TINCTORIUS (SAFFLOWER) SEED OIL, GLYCINE SOJA (SOYBEAN) OIL…see remainder scientific names I cannot pronounce here.
- Price: $14.99 for 16oz. tub. Being that I’ve seen other sulfate, mineral free type products ranging $10-$15 for 2-8oz, this price is pretty good if its a good fit for your BBH’s hair. AND a little goes a long way, which is KEY for us. I only needed about a dime size of product for each twist. A little more for the thicker parts of her hair.
- Smell: Pleasant scent, doesn’t scream “imma hair product!!”….
- Consistency: Hmmm, I’d say a mix between gel and pudding. For example, if you tap the tub on the table, the product wiggles like jello. But as you can see, it’s opaque and creamy. Hope that helps….
