After waiting for months, and missing an opportunity at the beginning of the summer, I finally got a subscription to curlBOX. For those of you who don’t know, curlBOX is a subscription service that provides a monthly box of hair products for women with curly hair. Products can range from samples to full-size bottles. It’s a great way to try out new products and feed your inner product junkie cravings.
This month was my first CurlBox. I was excited for some of the products, and just meh about the others. I had planned on purchasing the Ouidad Humidity Gel in the future, so I was thrilled to receive a full-size bottle. That alone is worth the cost of the subscription for the month.
So far I’ve only tried one product. Yesterday I whipped out my Curly Hair Solutions Curl Keepers. The product is a little thicker than water, but not quite a gel. It didn’t have too much of a smell. I wasn’t sure how much to use, so I just applied like I do my normal product.
The result looked great. My curls were defined and my hair looked great. However, and this is a big however, my hair was HARD. It was so crunchy that if I added milk I am certain it would have snapped, crackled and popped. Babs does not do crunchy hair, so I doubt I would use this product again.
I’ll update you later on the Humidity Gel.
