When buying hair products, sometimes you just have to go with what YOU KNOW. But then there are times, you become adventurous and curiosity takes over. And then…Hair Product Fail Happens.
I was using Cantu Coconut Curling Cream, which I actually liked (See my previous post on a review). I ran out of it and decided to try something else. Big mistake. Well since I’ve had good experiences with Shea Moisture’s product line (The Curl Enhancing Smoothie and Organic Yucca Baobab Thickening Conditioner) I wanted to get something else from the Shea Moisture product line.
I bought this Shea Moisture Curling Souffle ($9.99), and I absolutely
H A T E D it. Why? First of all, I have never had a product make my hair sticky, tangled and dried out at the same damn time. It kind of has the consistency and feel of Kinky Curly Custard and looks very similar to it in color. I tried using the Curling Souffle twice…..no three times, to make sure it wasn’t just me. I applied it like I do everything else, from root to tip, while wet. NO BUENO! On top of the mess, aka my hair, it made the back of my neck sticky!!!! WTH?? I was literally wiping the back of my neck ALL DAY with a wet napkin ugh! Irritated and pissed at Curling Souffle at this point.
THE worst natural hair product I’ve ever purchased, needless to say. I wouldn’t recommend this to my worst enemy (Well…maybe I would). Nevertheless, it was horrible for MY hair. I returned it Walgreen’s and I exchanged it for some other items.
It’s in love with my hair! Soft, moisturized with a light firm hold for defining the curls. I can actually get my fingers through my hair and it makes it manageable. Yeah…I’m good. 🙂
Peace & Blessings,
