I've been looking everywhere for a good curl defining/styling product. I happened to find this at a BSS, and grabbed it. I was sold after seeing the words "All Natural" on the label.
In a hive, there’s only one queen whose diet is only Royal Jelly, a nutrient packed super-food with 17 amino acids, vitamins A, C, D, K and multiple B-vitamins. We use the Queen Bee’s Royal Jelly in Curl Shaping Créme to naturally tame frizz, define curls and smooth waves with silky hold. Pure Aloe Vera Gel and Agave Nectar quench your hair’s thirst without the grease, while powerful Green Tea antioxidants and intense moisturizers defend against damaging heat and humidity.All natural: No harsh, or drying chemicals like alcohol, sulfates, petrolatum, parabens or phthalates.
Long live the queen!
I love the picture on the label and I thought the description was kinda cute too! :)
Aqua (Water) Glycerin Pectin Agave Rigida (Sisal) Extract Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract Royal Jelly Extract Carbomer Disodium EDTA Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate Tocopheryl Acetate Triethanolamine Phenoxyethanol Potassium Sorbate Sodium Benzoate Amyl Cinnamal Benzyl Benzoate Benzyl Salicylate Butylphenyl Methylpropional Citronellol Geraniol Hexyl Cinnamal Limonene Linalool Fragrance (Parfum)
Apply to wet hair. Start with dime-sized amount. Apply to ends first and work your way up by section, adding more as needed. Re-wet any dry sections. Be sure to smooth with fingers from root to tip to lengthen your curls and reduce the poof.
Light, somewhat runny
I'm not sure how to describe the scent, but it's very nice. It has a clean smell to me which I like a lot.
I found this at a BSS for $6.50 for a 15oz. tub! That is a great deal for a natural product that works!
After I wet C's hair and detangled it thoroughly, I divided her hair into several small sections and added the Royal Curl Creme as the instructions said. Once I added the creme to all of the hair in each section, I gently scrunched the hair from the ends up.
When C's hair started to dry, I noticed a little bit of crunchy hair, but that went away once it was completely dry. There was no flaking, crunchiness or build-up from this product and it left C's curls pretty defined and bouncy- more so than anything else we've tried!
This is a must have product when C wears her hair down, and I also like to use it to smooth down her edges. It helps make all the little fly-away/baby hairs that poke out in the middle of the day stick together and form actual curls. I will definitely be buying this again!
Have you tried this or any of the other Queen Helene Royal Curl products? What did you think?
