Hola peeps! This review is long overdue…..I have been using Curly Kids Mixed Hair Haircare products for about 2 months now and it was love at first try! I discovered the brand on Instagram (follow me @sassncurlz) and participated in a kids contest they were having in collaboration with Curly Girl Collective. Quick SN: I entered my niece and she won their entire product line! So after that I was intrigued to try them out for myself. Take a peek at the ingredients:
Curly Gel Moisturizer and Curl Defining Lotion: Water (Aqua), Carbomer, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Tetrasodium EDTA, PEG-75 Lanolin, Polysorbate 20, Triethanolamine, Fragrance (Parfum), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, DMDM Hydantoin, Hydrolyzed Wheat Gluten
Here is how it all went down:
–I washed and conditioned my hair as normal then proceeded to do the LOC (leave-in, oil, cream) Method.
–Whenever I use creamy styling products I like to use a water-based leave-in conditioner so I went with my old faithful-Jane Carter Revitalizing Leave-in Conditioner.
–Then I drenched my curlz with Castor Oil paying close attention to my ends.
–Next I used the Curly Kids Curl Defining Lotion for my cream. It is not sticky, the scent is kind of bland almost non-existent and it went on smoothly—love it! I could’ve stopped there as this is great if you want a big fluffy fro, however I continued on to the next step.
–After I smoothed the cream in my hair I applied the Gel Moisturizer because I wanted more hold. The gel is clear and is a little thicker (IMO) then say Eco Styler Gel. I liked that it worked well with the Curl Defining Lotion as it didn’t flake nor felt hard on my hair. So that put a big smile on my face!
–Last I finished off with my usual style–a Wash and Go.

What are your thoughts? Overall I give these products a 8 out of 10. My only con is the 6oz sizes. I have a ton of hair so they don’t last, I am already on my 2nd jar of each! I purchased mine at my local beauty supply store and nothing was over $3.79. Can’t beat that at all! However go here on amazon if you want buy. Have you tried any of their products or do you plan to? Let’s talk about it…leave a comment below 🙂
