Hola Chicas,

So, I owe you a slew of product reviews… I’ll start with one of my new favorite shampoos.

CURLS Cleansing Cream– 8oz/$15


Product Description:
This creamy, sulfate-free cleanser is gentle enough to use daily and is super moisturizing. Great cleanser for chemically altered and color-treated hair.

Gentle enough to use daily and moisturizing enough to use alone!

Curlicious Curls Cleansing Cream cleanser gently cleanses your curls and hydrates and conditions the hair all in one step. Infused with carrot seed oil, horse chestnut, sage leaf and Arnica montana flower extract.

My Experience: I’ve tried many ‘cleansing’ creams and to say that I’ve been less than impressed is an understatement. They usually go on rough, suds too much or too little and sadly, I find that many leave me feeling gunky and oily or just the opposite, totally stripped. This was the first cleansing cream that actually did what the product label claims. First of all, it’s slippery (yeah for Behentrimonium Methosulfate) and any shampoo that helps to kick off the detangling process is a winner in my book. It removed build-up from my gel with a low-lather and upon rinsing, left my hair feeling clean, soft, moisturized and a bit detangled! I highly recommend this one. The price? A little steep for my taste, but the quality is obviously there. I received the poo from NaturallyCurly.com. While I’m absolutely over the moon, I can’t tell you that I’d purchase it. I’d love to find an equivalent product on the ground… and for much cheaper, lol. I wonder if the Curls for Target Curls Creamy Cleansing Cream performs similarly?

Bottom Line:
If you’re in the market for an effective yet gentle cleanser that adds moisture and aids in detangling, then this one’s for you! Oh, and the vanilla fragrance is divine. Two thumbs up!
