Product Haul Friday, January 25, 2013
Luster's Scurl No Drip Curl Activator has come out with a brand new formula with a Fresh new Fragrance, minus the Parabens, Frizz and Mineral oil (the old formula never had Mineral oil). Scurl No Drip now contains Argan Oil and Olive oil. Nice! However, I don't like the fact that they added DMDM Hydantoin (formaldehyde preservative). I really don't think that was necessary.
As soon as this product hit the market, I immediately got nervous. You don't understand, this product is my S-T-A-P-L-E!! It has multiple purposes in my hair care regimen (moisturizer, leave-in conditioner, new growth softener etc.) so if this new formula doesn't work for me and they convert all the sizes (8oz, 16oz and 32 fl oz) to the new formula.... I'll go nuts - literally! The good thing is, is that I only saw the new formula in the 32 fl. oz. so if this doesn't work out for me, I have the other sizes to fall back on. I just pray that they don't discontinue the old formula, in that scenario.
Part of me is curious to see how the oils and glycerin will mix together. I'll be testing the new Scurl for the next couple of weeks and then I'll post my final thoughts. So far, I can say that the scent is a change for the better. It's smells very fresh and sweet (kind of like a Herbal Essences conditioner), however the consistency of the product looks the same - opaque and watery. We'll see how it goes.
Wish me luck!
