Ok..so my review…

If you follow my Instagram then you might’ve seen my 12 sec video where I explained how much I was loving my hair because of Camille Rose Natural’s Curl Maker. You already know my favorite styler (Eco Styler Gel), so I never buy stylers because I simply have found thee one. But! I heard so many good things about this styler and decided to give it a try. Plus, I can always use it on my daughter’s 4a hair if it doesn’t work well on my 3a-3c hair. It was hard to find. It says select Target stores, and they really mean select Target stores LOL. In my area, these products were mainly in “urban” Targets if you know what I mean. I finally found mine after going to three different Target’s! When I looked online for the Target’s that carried it, it said it was there got there and it wasn’t. I found mine at the Compton Target.

Pros 🙂

  • I like the pump for jelly styler. A jelly is different from a gel because it has more a slip and the consistency isn’t as thick.
  • I like the natural ingredients it offers
  • I like the shine that it gives my hair
  • Great for moisture and refreshing my curls
  • If you want definition but no crunch, this product is for you

Cons 😦

  • It leaves my hair sticky
  • I only get one day out of my wash and go
  • The price ($19.99)! My friend found her Camille Rose for $11 at Target!
  • Only found in select Target locations

Would I purchase again?

Maybe…

I say maybe because…I’ve been in the natural hair gang (pats fro, lol) for some time now. Because of this I’m no longer a product junkie. I know what works for my hair and what will not just by reading the ingredients and looking at the product. I have found my styler and my hair loves it.

HOWEVER….

It’s great for refreshing my curls instead of using it for a wash and go. I spritz my curls (usually in the back) with Aloe Vera Juice and then I take a pump or two of Camille Rose Natural’s Curl Maker and apply it by smoothing it in and I’m good to go. To stretch that section I make sure that it’s mostly dry, then I will pineapple with a scarf while I get ready. I take off my scarf and I will have moisturized shiny and defined curls 🙂

I will definitely purchase more of their other products!

Calling All My Wash n’ Go Gals: Here’s My Favorite ‘All Natural’ Curl Refresher!

Hey Curlfriends! ❤

me4Clarification: I get many questions about my hair…my hair is naturally curly and I wear it in a wash n’ go #TeamWashNGo Lol! I do not twist or braid my hair because I hate waiting for them to dry LOL…I use my choice of a leave in (it varies), then Eco Styler gel on wet hair and I rake the gel through each section from root to ends. I then will follow up with a sealant (almond oil), diffuse on low heat high speed, fluff and go. I usually can get about 5 days depending if I work out or not. 🙂

In my Steve Harvey voice: Well! Now that we got that out the way..

Lol. Ok…

faves4 ALOE VERA JUICE!

If you’re anything like me, then you know how hard it is to find a good curl refresher! Now, let me explain. When you wear your hair in a wash n go, like I do…after the 3rd and 4th day my hair begins to get dry. I don’t have the time nor do I want to re do my wash n go again, so I choose to “refresh” or reactivate my curls. Some of you lucky naturals can use JUST water and be fine. NOT I!!!! Lol. Water makes my hair frizz. So, I’ve tried curl refreshers from natural hair lines and honestly, it just wasn’t worth the money because it didn’t do ANYTHING for my hair.

It wasn’t until I found out through research about Aloe Vera Juice and ALL its goodness and how great it is for a curl refresher. Went out and bought mine at Sprouts (I believe it was under $10) and tried this bad boy and I literally screamed with a “yaaaaaaaassss”, while admiring my curls in the mirror. It did the job so of course I had to share! Especially for any of my curlies out there who struggle with finding a refresher to not only moisturize but to keep that wash n go going as long as possible!

Here are some benefits of Aloe Vera Juice

  •  It’s conditioning: There are about 20 Amino Acids in the aloe vera that help to promote strength and luster for our hair. The structure is very similar to that of keratin! Aloe vera juice soothes the shaft as well.
  • It breaks down dandruff: “Because of the aforementioned enzymatic breakdown of dead skin cells from Aloe Vera, this awesome plant has also been used for the treatment of dandruff.” – OGC
  • It’s anti-inflammatory: Not only internally but externally too! Aloe Vera helps to calm irritation and sensitivity on the scalp. Itchy scalp? Try Aloe Vera Juice!
  • It promotes hair growth and reduces hair loss: Because Aloe vera helps to retain water and moisture, that allows for our hair to stay moisturized and not dry out. Dry hair breaks, moisturized hair flourishes. Aloe Vera helps to break down clogging agents in the scalp which help to increase hair growth by stimulating the hair follicles!

There are so many added benefits to our overall health, definitely try it if you haven’t!

spraybottle

Tip: Mix your aloe vera juice with a little bit of water in your spray bottle. If you have some essential oil, feel free to add a couple drops and keep your mix in the fridge. Spritzing your wash and go with cold water helps to smooth and close the cuticle and locks in moisture while giving you a great shine! 🙂

 

What do you use to refresh your curls? Let me know!!

 

Until next time Curlies! XO!
