The Curl Company Review Pretty Please Charlie

Curl Defining Mousse – R179.95 (200ml)

The Curl Defining Mousse does a great job at defining my spiral curls. My hair is extremely fine and I need something that gives great hold without leaving my hair tacky or crunchy. This mousse does exactly that. I apply it to damp hair, after I comb through a little conditioner*. This is a great mousse and gets 2 thumbs up.

Styling Crème Gel – R109.95 (150ml)

I have a love/hate relationship with all curl creams. Most curl creams do not give me enough hold and in order to give any sort of shape, I have to apply so much product that my curls often are weighed down and look greasy. I also don’t do gel. It does not work with my hair at all. I was super curious to see how this creme gel would perform and I tried it on the same day that I received it. I applied a very generous amount (as I mentioned I need a lot of product) to freshly washed, damp hair. Oh my, what a bloody disappointment. They said it’s a no crunch formula. Uhm, you should have heard the crunch. And my curls looked horrible (takkerig is the only word I can think of to describe it). So I put the tube away. There’s a but coming so keep reading…

So many ladies asked for feedback after I posted the above pic on Instagram, that I thought that I should perhaps give it another try.

This time I took less of the creme gel and mixed into that an equal amount of conditioner. It doesn’t look great when you mix the two as the texture is very strange BUT I got results! Amazing results.

The Curl Company Styling Crème Gel + conditioner* = beautiful, bouncy, soft, shapely curls!

Love, love, LOVE! The creme gel is now my favourite of the two products.

Next I want to try the sulphate-free shampoo and masque.

* Here’s a little tip…  if leave-in conditioner is too light and doesn’t do it for you, use your normal conditioner. That’s what I do and my hair loves it.

  1. Hi there,

    I bought the crème gel yesterday and used it this morning for the first time. Let me say I have extremely fine curly/frizzy hair and I WANT the crunch (and even ‘takkerig’) look! :) Maybe I used too little? With the previous product I used I had to add a little water to the gel to make it work better. I will use a bit more tomorrow without the water and really hope it works, I feel like one of my sheep at the moment!!

    1. Let me know how it goes tomorrow. Curly hair is such a b*tch to work with, haha! I think every single curl on every single head has it’s own personality.

      1. Hi Charlene,

        Thought I’ll try the product this weekend, but still, really not a good hair experience! Put it on damp hair – no joy! Then I put it on quite wet hair, a bit better, but actually, it didn’t work at all. I just can’t seem to get the more defined ‘wet-look’ look with this product.
