Product Review—Curly Kids Mixed Hair Haircare

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.

Keep scrolling to see pics of the different styles I rocked!

This look was a simple WNG using both products.
Another WnG pulled to the side and accessorized with big patterned bow.
A fluffed out WnG—big hair don’t care!

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 🙂

Disclosure:  This is NOT a sponsored post as I purchased all products and this review is based on my honest opinion.

  1. I ran across these products in my local CVS just got it at a very affordable price . Looking forward using in after hearing these great reviews.

  2. Hello my name is Ange and I have a 1 year old daughter and when she was born in the middle of her head she did not have hair and I wanted to know is curly kids a good product to use to help the hair grow

    1. Hi Ange! Oh wow I don’t have children but I do have nieces and a nephew that had mild baldness as well. While I do like Curly Kids Mixed Haircare products I don’t think they treat a bald spot. I have read reviews about using Castor Oil as great remedy. I would suggest testing out a small patch before because I know that some people have a reaction to castor oil. There has also been reviews about Coconut oil helping as well. My suggestion would be to do your own research and test out things that work for your precious little one. I hope that this helps! Please stop by again soon.

  3. I am loving their products. It is always an adventure trying to find products that work for my four year old. The products I used don’t moisturize her hair enough and most African American products weigh it down or wind up feeling icky. These products are doing wonders on her tight curls. I love that they are half the price of mixed chicks!


  4. I’ve used several different products in my daughter’s hair with a huge fail from each. It either made her hair look and feel as if there was glue in it and was incredibly hard to wash out. Or they dried her hair out and matted it down. I found Curly Kids at a Sally’s with a buy 2 get one free promo. I purchased the shampoo leave in conditioner and the gel. I’ve been extremely happy with these products and have been using them since August 🙂

    1. Hi Desiree! That is just awesome. I dont have children but as you can see i use their products on my own hair and love it! It is so wonderful to find products that work and at a great price point. Thanks for the feedback and stop by again soon.

  5. Hello… I know exactly what you mean about this product. I’m been using it for about 3 months. I’ve been using the curly moisturizing gel the most and I’m loving the results it give me. I especially love the price that goes with it. I can go on and on about this products. I give it a 9 out of 10 because of the size of the product. Thanks for sharing your great review and results.
