So my very first curlBOX finally arrived and I couldn’t wait to tear open the package and get at all of my new curly hair goodies. If you’re not aware curlBOX is a sampling program for women with lovely curly locks. And since I’ve gone natural I’m always looking at new hair care products so I decided to give it a shot. The subscription service is $20 per month and each subscriber receives anywhere from 5-7 hand selected hair products, you can cancel the subscription at any time.
Here are the contents of April’s’ curlBOX:
The first item(s) were an assortment of Taliah Waajid Curls, Waves & Naturals. There were three packets in total which gives you 1-2 uses to sample the product out. I tried The Great Detangler but since I have a lot of hair it just wasn’t enough for my whole head of hair, The Curly Cream was great, very thick, helps to smooth frizz and add a little bit of shine plus it was great smelling so I liked it a lot. The last packet was The Curl Sealer which I have not tested out yet.
There were two sample packets of Nutress Moisturizing Protein Pack for Colored Hair, I haven’t tried these packets yet but they are cruelty-free. I noticed that several items in this package were cruelty-free so that makes me a very happy animal lover!
There was a full-size sample of Ampro Olive Oil Gel which is paraben and alcohol free. Although I rearely use gel and I have to say that I really liked this, its lightweight, has a pleasant scent and holds hair gently in place. It also gets a major thumbs up for being kind to animals.
Next was a deluxe sample of Ultra Care Sulfate Free Hydrating Shampoo. I’m super picky about my shampoo and I loved this one because it didn’t leave my hair dry and I felt that I could actually get a comb through it WITHOUT using conditioner. I didn’t attempt it but it sure did feel good!
Another full-size goodie was the Eden Body Works All Natural Peppermint Tea Tree Temple Balm which helps to prevent hair from breaking, fading, or thinning out. This hair balm will soothe your scalp with tingly goodness that comes from the peppermint and tea tree oil. It also has lots of great moisturizing ingredients like shea butter, Jojoba and Mango Seed Butter. Love!
The next item is a deluxe sample of Curls Unleashed No Restrictions Moisturizing Conditioner. This is another winner for me, I absolutely loved this product. First of all it has a beautiful clean scent to it, very light, almost botanical. This conditioner is true to its name because there are no restrictions on how you can use it. You can “co-wash with it in lieu of shampoo or a use it was a detangler or even as a leave-in conditioner.
Last but not least is Darcy’s Botanicals Sweet Cocoa Bean Curl Smoothing Cream a cruelty-free and vegan leave-in conditioners that helps to detangle, moisturize, defrizz, and soften curls. This cream is great for styling, I used it to push my hair back in a ponytail, and it left my hair super soft. By far this is the best smelling product in the package, it smells just like a rich cup of hot cocoa and I couldn’t stop myself from smelling it over and over. I will certainly be buying this product again!
Since this is my first curlBOX I’d like to see what the next few months bring. I like that there were two full-size products and a few deluxe size samples so that I can get a few uses out of each product to see if I liked them enough to buy them. There was a nice selection of cruelty-free hair care products so I was extremely pleased about that and there were even a few coupons included which is a nice bonus, in fact one of the coupons for 20% off of one of my favorite brands, Belle Butters. Overall it was a great deal for the price!
