♥ Coconut & Caramel

I randomly headed to my local hair shop the other day because there was a product I was thinking of trying. I can literally spend hours there just walking around, looking at every product, reading ingredients, and comparing (what a hobby) ..

Despite this I seemed to have missed two really exciting brand (or maybe because they were new in the shop), one brand called Curs and the other one called Mixed Chicks they are actually both made for multi ethnic women with curly hair. Of course, anyone can use them. I am "mixed" myself though (Swedish and Nigerian/English) but I still have really afroish natural hair that I relax.

I was so excited to find these new brand, I was probably at the counter for about 25 minutes, smelling, reading ingredients, thinking lol. Eventually I decided to go for the Curls products instead of the Mixed Chicks ones because even though the Curls products were expensive, they were cheaper then Mixed Chicks and they smell amaaaaazing (of Coconut and Caramel).

Here is a little something about Curls from HERE (Click to read the whole text)

"CURLS (and Curly Q's) products contain an exclusive blend of natural oils and quality ingredients, such as aloe leaf juice, panthenol, mango, shea and murmur butter. We’ve included a new, patent pending ingredient - a derivative of the primary lipid found at the hair surface. This important ingredient restores the integrity of your hair, protects the hair from environmental stress, and replenishes the protective layer bound to the hair cuticle." 

Also, all their products are formulated with NO silicones, mineral oils, parabens or sulfates.
