S-Curl No Drip Activator Ingredients have CHANGED?!

Saturday, May 22, 2010

I'm a huge fan of S-Curl No Drip Activator as my leave-in conditioner and daily moisturizer ( I still use Wave Noveau Finishing Lotion). It never fails me. I always re-purchase the 32 fl oz. size because I get 16 more ounces for an extra $3-4. Both bottles have always had the same ingredients, therefore its a better bargain for me to get the larger one.

When it comes to Scurl, I always purchase the big bottle then I pour a good amount (never measure) into the older bottle with the spray nozzle just for convenience and ease in distributing the product all over my hair. I re-stock with the big bottle and pour it into the smaller bottle.

However, when purchasing the 32 fl oz. size this time around, I noticed additional ingredients on the list. Check out the pics below for a visual comparison.

The 16 fl oz. Spray Bottle Version

I've been using the new bottle and so far I've found no difference in the effectiveness of the product. It feels just the same as before. Moisturizing! If I do notice a change in the near future I'll just go back to purchasing the 16 fl oz size. I just wanted to put it out there that if you purchase the big bottle of S-Curl, like myself and you notice a difference in the ingredients as well, don't be alarmed.

  1. Interesting... I need to go check my bottle and see if I have one of the new ones!!


  2. I don't know if it's my eyes but the only differences I see are the ones after fragrance. They shouldn't have an effect on your hair unless you are allergic to those chemicals. It's probably like .001% of the formula

  3. Sorry of course Ididn't read before I commented. Just skimmed and looked at the pics. I see you addressed that its only after fragrance :-)

  4. Lol sorry for all the comments. This is the last I promise, but I just checked my 8 oz bottle that I just bought from Walmart a couple of weeks ago. It's the same ingredients as your big bottle so that must be their new formulation.

  5. I wouldn't worry, they are additional ingredients within the fragrance itself. However they can cause irritation so they now have to be stated even though they appear in minute quantities.

  6. Good catch...I don't use S-curl but this is reminder for me to check the ingredients on my products

  7. Hey Sunshine,
    I hope your doing well! I was going to try out some of these Jerri Curl juices but while in the store, I changed my mind after reading the ingredient list. They all have "PROPYLENE GLYCOL" listed in the ingredients. That's "antifreeze." I'm too scared to even try it, much less use it as a leave in. Anyway, enough of my rambling :)

  8. I was doing some checking on the internet and propylene glycol is actually found in several everyday products from deodorant to lotions to soda. Ethylene glycol is the toxic chemical found in traditional antifreezes. Propylene glycol is used in newer, kid and pet safe antifreezes.
