Unboxing | October 2016 Curlkit

Hey y’all!

Quick confession.

I’m a product junkie. Actually scratch that.

I’m a reformed product junkie.

I used to hoard natural hair products just to be able to test them out and see what they would do for my hair. However, that was becoming pretty pricey and I had one of two choices to make.

SLOW IT DOWN.

or

Subscribe to a subscription service.

I chose the second option because there was no way I was just going to stop buying products. Crazy right?!

At the time, there were only 2 natural hair subscription services on the market.

Curlkit & Curlbox.

I went with Curlkit.

I’m not quite sure why I picked Curlkit but I’ve never purchased a Curlbox and I’m thinking maybe I should just to try it out.

Comment below if you want to see a review on a Curlbox.

But everything was going great. I was loving the products I was receiving and then bam.

I went through a protective style phase and used my staple products only.

Also, once I found products that worked for me all of the experimenting went out the window.

I canceled my subscription and kept it pushing.

Fast forward to today.

It’s been about 2 years since my last Curlkit and I was excited to receive one to test out.

But before I share what was in the kit, here are some quick facts about Curlkit:

Sample Size of

Doo Gro Tingling Gro Shampoo

I normally just use the samples when I ship products people buy from my Poshmark closet or use them in my sons hair. I did use the Tingling Gro Shampoo in conjunction with Eden Body Works Shampoo and my curls were super defined and detangling was a breeze. I think I’m going to pick up a full size of the this shampoo because it was amazing.

Nature Pure Hair Butter w/ Monoi Oil

Nature Pure Curling Gel w/ Monoi Oil

I’ve never heard of this company before and was eager to try out the products. I used these products together and attempted a three strand twist out and the results were amazing. My curls were very moisturized and defined. I also didn’t have any product buildup from using both products.

Full Sized Product of

Amla Legend Combing Cream

I’m not too sure what this product is but the website claims:

Amla Legend combing cream delivers the conditioning and detangling benefits of a leave-in conditioner with the curl defining effects of a styling product for all-around perfect curls. This luxurious oil-in-cream provides breakage protection sealing in strength and moisture for ultimate protection, enhanced softness and ease of style. It is designed for loose to coily curls and works best on curl types 2 (wavy) thought 3c (curly/coily).

Just reading that lets me know that I won’t use this product. I do have some 3c curls but they are in the back of my hair. I will probably donate this product to a homeless shelter.

That’s it. Overall this was a great box.
