I don’t know about you. But I LOVE to try new products. I got to try Curl Keeper Styling Cream before it was in stores. Luckily, for you, its now available.
Curl Keeper Styling Cream Giveaway details below!!!
How I used this product?
Since this is a Styling Cream, I wanted to see how well it would define my curl in a wash and go. I always check how well it coats the hair, if there’s any slip while applying, am I left with soft, flexible curls, does it leave any residue. I shared my first encounter with the product on Instagram (see pic on the left).
I applied Curl Keeper Styling Cream to freshly shampooed and conditioned hair. In medium to big sections, I finger combed or shingled the product into my hair. Some sections of my hair refuse to be defined with my fingers, so I used a Denman Brush for those stubborn sections.
Curl Keeper Styling Cream was light with slip. It was easy to apply. It did define my curls. But I noticed it works best on wet hair, like sloppying, dripping wet hair. It dried fairly quickly without residue. I don’t usually let my wash and go’s air dry. (It’s just too much bulk and shrinkage for me. I prefer to dry using a blow dryer with diffuser attachment.) I pineappled my hair at night with a satin scarf.
What about Day 2 Hair or Day 3 Hair?
I did have good day 2 hair. It was still soft and define. It did need a little refreshing with a hair streamer. But this product still wore well. Day 3 hair felt the same as day 2 but there was a little frizz. So I just decided to pull my hair up into a curly puff. Still soft and defined curls.
Because I liked the results of my wash and go, I decided to do a Twist Out. The results were beautiful. Very soft, flexible hold, but with the twist out it lasted a little longer than 2-3 days. Still no residue! Again after a few days I pulled my hair up into a curly puff.
My apologizes… I’m 39 weeks pregnant (Update: baby is here see pics on Instagram: @naturalhairrule) so I didn’t get any pics of the wash and go (I couldn’t get the right angle) or the twist out. But below is a picture of the curly puff. Again I used steam to refresh the curls and keep it moisturized.
I like this Curl Keeper Styling Cream but I’m not sure how well it will define tightly coiled hair.
