The Review Crew: Judith Reviews Curl Prep!
1.) Introduce yourself! (name, what do you do, how long and why did you go natural)
My name is Judith. I am a doctoral student in a biomedical science program. I’ve been natural since May 1st, 20011. I went natural because I found strength and empowerment in embracing natural BLACK beauty as it is.
2.) Please describe your hair for us! (texture, length, thick/thin, any problems with dryness, dandruff, etc)
I have 4b/4c textured curls that are about 4 inches long, and very thick. I do have dry hair but deep conditioning on a regular basis keeps it moisturized.
3.) First off, what is the product’s smell/consistency?
Curl Prep pre-wash: does not smell like anything. It has a thick gray jelly like consistency
Curl Prep Sweet Buttah: Smells sweet. Thick and creamy white consistency.
4.) How did you use this product?
I used the pre-wash on dry hair as instructed right before a wash. Before washing it out I already noticed the difference in my curl pattern. After washing out the pre-wash with shampoo and conditioning my hair I used the sweet buttah for a two strand twist and set my hair in rods.
5.) Did the product meet its claims? How did your hair/scalp feel afterward? Describe any positive/negative effects.
This product claims to elongate your curls. It did work!
Positive: It was an adequate conditioner (I also used a leave in). My hair felt soft and not too greasy. The sweet buttah was light on my hair and did not weigh it down. I also like the light sweet sent.
Negative: I left the Pre-wash in for 10 minutes (rather than the 5 instructed) and my scalp started burning. I had to wash it out quickly….side eye!
6.) Would you buy this product, and use it again?
I would use the sweet buttah product again but not the pre-wash.
7.) Any final info you’d like to add?
I like the idea of having extended curls right after a wash but I was concerned about the Pre-wash burning my scalp. I went natural to have healthy hair. I was concerned that the ingredients might not be good for your hair. A natural remedy should not burn your scalp if you leave it in 5 minutes longer than instructed.
