Description

As you probably already know, curly hair naturally lacks moisture, so let's make sure your shampoo isn't drying it out further! This formula gently cleanses without stripping, has good slip and creates a super rich lather to make wash day a pleasure.

How to:
1. Thoroughly wet your hair, then create partings with the pointed tip and apply shampoo directly to your scalp.
2. Massage in to create a rich lather. Add a little water if needed.
3. Rinse well before conditioning.
Tip: Use the pointed tip to get your shampoo right where you need it most… at the scalp!

Contains Curl Hydration Complex, our signature moisture-infusing complex designed to hydrate, reduce frizz and encourage coils while adding shine and protecting against environmental stressors and color fade.

It has the best scent ever. It's super hydrating. You can feel your hair start to change texture while washing. The applicator tip is incredible. Price is amazing for like brands. I stopped using it for a few months and my hair was a mess. This is after 1 wash. My curl patterns are returning already.

Made my scalp super itchy and gave me dandruff. Was so bad I apparently scratched my head in the night and made it bleed. The scent is also too strong for me.

first, i love the bottle. i think the tip is very helpful in preventing wasting product, and it allows me to pour it directly behind my ears/on my scalp. second, it leaves my hair SO soft. after my first use, it made a visible difference. it’s as if i had used my leave-in conditioner! no frizz whatsoever. third, it helps define my wavy hair into more curly shape (still wavy). i used to use function of beauty for wavy hair, but this executes a lot better and without having to put in any boosters. 10/10 in my book!

Great for Relaxed Hair

NB - 6 months ago, Verified purchaser
This worked wonders for my thick relaxed hair. It felt AMAZING afterwards, and was left incredible soft. Again, the scent is a mature woman's scent, not candy coated sugary cotton candy, which I personally cannot stand. The scent is earthy and soft. It may be a good idea to smell it before purchasing, which could save a lot of time...doesn't everyone do that before purchasing anyhow? Most importantly, the shampoo is phenomenal, cleanses very well, and left my hair buttery soft, even before applying the matching conditioner.

Firstly, I must admit that I accidentally purchased this product, thinking it was a conditioner. As a curly girl always on the lookout for new hair conditioners, I'll take the blame for my mistake. However, I'm pleasantly surprised by this shampoo. Not only does it have a fantastic scent, but it also stands out among the many shampoos I've tried, as it doesn't leave my curly hair feeling dry. Those with curly hair will understand the struggle, but this shampoo does the opposite—it leaves my hair soft and wonderfully defined with beautiful curls. I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone seeking a great shampoo for curly hair.

Yikes! Used for about a week and experienced lots of hair loss. I came to the reviews to see if others had this problem and it would seem so! Also my hair became dry and frizzy. I like other products from this brand but had to toss this one out sadly!

DO NOT BUY!!! I used this once - was out of town afterwards on a business trip. Ended up in the hotel bathroom scratching my dry flakey scalp with a brush like a dirty raccoon! I had to SOAK twice in sink with crappy hotel shampoo just to see my scalp again! Stay away!! xo Curly Girl

Smelled good, like the idea of the nozzle, BUT causes scalp sensitivity. Gave me itchy scalp, dandruff, and some acne (on my scalp). I kept on thinking it was something else, but once I started using a different shampoo all the issues abated.

So I bought these (CURL Shampoo, Conditioner and Leave-In Conditioner) because someone recommended it to me. I ended up buying them and then reading the reviews before I tried it and was so nervous because of all the negative comments. First of all, the smell is not that bad. It's not the floral smell that women are use to but it's also not nauseating. People's comments got me worried but the smell is fine. No its not my favorite but it's fine. Second, after shampoo and conditioned my hair felt clean and fresh. Finally, the leave-in conditioner is a spray cream and at first I thought for sure this will not suffer my curls. They are definitely going to be frizzy bit lo and behold my curls (after air drying) are fabulous. See pictures below. I totally recommend these products!

Used this product with the corresponding curly conditioner. My scalp is greasy and I can feel the residue in my hair. I panicked and thought it was a hormonal issue, then used a different line of products and the issue went away immediately.
