CAMILLE ROSE NATURALS CURL MAKER
As naturals the goal is to have healthy hair without the use of harmful chemicals and excessive amounts of heat. But we’re all human and the truth is as naturals we also want curls that cause immediate envy! Or is that just me? Whether you are rocking a braid out, twist out or a wash n’ go curl or coil definition is the key to a poppin’ style. Many products promise to give your hair the definition you crave minus the frizz that can come along with it. Being that I love to rock a wash n’ go on the regular, I am always looking for a good product to help my curls and coils last. I picked up a bottle of the Camille Rose Naturals Curl Maker from a local Target to see if this would be my new go to styler for my wash n’ go’s.

After washing, deep conditioning and detangling my hair I sectioned my hair and applied my leave in conditioner. I then spritzed my hair with water to re-wet my strands from root to end. I pumped an approximate quarter sized amount in the palm of my hand and then clasp the product between my hands. Using the “praying hands” technique I then applied the product to my hair section by section. I re-wet my hair as necessary as I applied the product.
My Results; Pros and Cons
Pros – The definition in my curls was very noticeable. I noticed even the areas of my hair that are typically uncooperative seemed to curl. The product was not sticky or tacky once dry like other products that I have tried previously. My hair also was not crunchy once dry.
Cons – This product doesn’t always play nice with others. I have used it numerous times and I have found it doesn’t like leave in conditioners with multiple oils in the ingredients list. When this product is used alongside a product it doesn’t mesh well with it can leave a white residue on the hair. Also it may just be a result of my hair type, but I found that my hair only makes it to “3rd day” hair and then the frizz takes over.
I believe you can also use this product for braid outs and twist outs although, I have yet to try it for those particular styles. To be honest, I felt the price ($22 at Target) was a bit pricey but it has 12 ounces and the bottle has a pump (which is helpful). I will continue to use the product until it runs out. At the moment I do believe I would repurchase this item.
