My Experience:

I usually cleanse my hair once a month (co wash weekly), so that's how I used the Curl and Shine. I pre poo'd with coconut oil (and detangled) before washing. I had my hair in 4 twists for washing and massaged my scalp with the Curl and Shine for a few minutes then allowed the water to run the shampoo down my twists. I squeezed the shampoo in my twists to cleansed, took my hair out of the twists to allow the water to give a final rinse, then prepared to deep condition my hair.

My Own Thoughts:

This is definitely not the shampoo for me!

I used this shampoo three times and the results were always the same: my hair felt like straw, it was really tangled, and it looked so dry. The Curl and Shine also had way too much "sudsy" action for me. I'm used to my clay wash and the subtlety of it...this shampoo really laid it on thick (pun intended) which made it seem like it was not sulfate-free what so ever. Just saying...I don't like the suds. Although the smell got me hooked in the first place to purchase, this shampoo is just not worth it to me.

Of course, I'm not happy with the ingredient line up because the featured ingredients aren't in the top 5 (which I'm strict about), but I thought I give it a try. Yea no...this shampoo is not for me at all.

I really wanted to like this product, but I'm going to try another sulfate-free shampoo.

I Would NOT Purchase This Again!

Have you tried the Curl And Shine? What did you think about it?
