Truth:


Almond & Shea Butter Moisturizing Shampoo
Typically, transparency in shampoo's indicate that it contains sulfates and/or detergents. This shampoo is just the opposite. Though, it's clear in colour, it has a thick consistency. I like how it contains Apple Cider Vinegar to lower the pH balance of the hair and remove buildup. It lathers quite well. More importantly, it's very moisturizing. My hair felt noticeably soft while rinsing out the shampoo. Unfortunately, there wasn't much slip to remove the few tangles I had.
Banana Nut & Avocado Deep Treatment
This is by far my favourite product from the entire line. It actually makes me mad that this deep conditioner comes in such a small bottle. Like why?! Interestingly enough, I was able to get about 3-4 uses out of it. My hair literally soaks up this creamy goodness. The slip is on point due to the Behentrimonium Methosulfate in the top ingredients. My hair feels hydrated and soft after each use. Love it!
Thirsty Kurls Leave-in Conditioner
I didn't have much luck with this leave-in conditioner. I tried it on damp hair after I deep conditioned and even as a moisturizer, regardless my hair always felt stiff and dry :( I must say that the texture is very smooth and light. It spreads well over my hair. I love how slippy it is. It does a great job in removing my tangles, but once my hair is fully air dried, it feels dry! I really wanted to like the KB leave-in but my hair says otherwise. I do love the scent, it reminds me of baby powder. If you are sensitive to certain scents, this may be a little overwhelming for you.
Kurl Defining Crème
My hair gets very finicky when it comes to moisturizing cremes. It either sits on top of my hair making it feel greasy or it makes my hair crispy. My hair typically responds well to cremes with Glycerin in them and this one just happens to be one of them! The KB Kurl Defining Creme works so well on my relaxed strands. I was shocked. I typically use it on my braid-outs or twist-outs to lock in moisture. It also works great when I do the LCO Method. A little goes a long way!


Overall Thoughts:
  • Very moisturizing product line - no protein, silicones, parabens
  • Slippy conditioner and leave-in to remove tangles
  • Sulfate free shampoo
  • Contains butters - may weigh down hair if not careful
  • Love the shampoo and deep treatment
  • Packaging should be bigger!
  • Works well for relaxed hair!
Price: $14.00 - $18.00 USD/8 fl. oz.

Hairlicious Rating:  (4/5) Very Good

  1. Great review. I have the conditioner and LI. I'm glad you loved the conditioner. I was hoping for big things from the LI from what I've read online. I'll let you know my thoughts when I finally use them.
