So Happy Right Now - I Found The Original Scurl No Drip Activator!

Saturday, September 07, 2013

Words cannot describe how happy I am to have found my favourite moisturizer! I went to my local beauty supply store today and found 2 bottles sitting on the shelf just calling my name. I had to do a double take because lately, the Original Scurl No Drip Activator is obsolete! It's no where to be found. Because of that, I've forced myself to use the new formula and I notice a difference in my hair. 

When I use the New Formula for the Scurl No Drip Activator my hair feels drier, my roots do not stay moist when I spray  my new growth, and my ends are not getting the moisture it needs. It's just a mess. I've recently had to do a big trim on my ends because of the lack of moisture my hair has been getting. It seems as though it just sits on my hair and makes it crunchy. I'm extremely disappointed! I just don't understand why Luster's had to change a good thing. UGH!! :(

Anyway, I now have two bottles of the Original Scurl formula at my disposal. This is all I'll be using for the next little while. I need these babies to last!!!

  1. Hi Sunshyne,
    I know you wrote a post about the ingredients in the new Scurl, I was wondering what is it that I should look for that's unusual? Mine is not working either, and I am frustrated.


  2. Sunhyne, that is so true. I had the one with the new ingredients but after reading your reviews i went to the shop yesterday and bought the 'original' one. I feel the difference. thanks for the update.

    I'm just wondering if it's all about how the hair feels rather than the ingredients because i think the new one is labelled as parabean/mineral oil free. Sunshyne, how do you select your products?

  3. Hi sunshyne,
    I read your original post regarding Scurl and was just as surprised to learn the formula had been changed. I have about 3 bottles of the original formula (8 oz). However, I was at the pharmacy this morning and while waiting for my prescription i went browsing the isles. I can across a few 8 oz bottles with no oils but these additional ingredients that are not in the original(deionized water, Benzyl salicylate, Hydroxycitronellal, Alpha-isomethyl lonone, eugenol, Amy Cinnamal & Limonene) . These ingredients seems to follow on the bottle where Frangrance i the last on the list of the original. What do you know about this formula? Have you used it? I'm very interested to hear what u have to say. Thank u for your time.

  4. I know the feeling. There is nothing that compares to the original formula. The new formula irritates my scalp. I tried to love it, I really, really did but my scalp screamed every single time. A friend that lives in NY located the original formula and cleaned the shelves for me. I'm so happy for that.
