Disclaimer: These products were gifted to me.
In November I was invited down to the Holy Curls Office to have a conversation with Founder Badira of Holy Curls for their #BabesTalk series. I had a lovely time getting to know more about the brand, their products and the woman behind this new haircare brand that has been rightfully hyped up by the one and only Jorja Smith.
The Babes Talk series explores women and their experiences with being true to themselves. What it looks like, how we get there and how we navigate a world that can be incredibly confusing and contradicting.
After an amazing conversation with Founder Badria, which you will be able to watch on Holy Curls Instagram soon, I was kindly gifted their range of products to try out.
The excitement was real! Just from reading the captions on the packaging. These captions make the branding feel personal. I was particularly excited to try it as it had a sweet orange fragrance running through the range. Citrus is one of my favourite scents for hair products, especially fresh, natural essential oils. The scent is strong enough to be smelt without much effort but subtle enough to give you all the luxury feels you would experience if you was to spend time in a hair salon.
I definitely felt like these products and the general brand has a strong focus on relaxation and making your washday experience simple and luxurious with great results.
Holy Curls Review
All of the Holy Curls products are £18.00 and they also have a Discovery Box for £28 which is the full range in a minis version. Great for those who want to try the products without having to commit to using full-sized products – All products are cruelty-free, sulphate free and Vegan.
BAOBAB OIL – CUPUAÇU BUTTER – COCONUT OIL – ALOE VERA LEAF GEL – YUCCA EXTRACT – ESSENTIAL OILS
This shampoo lathered up so easily and the slip was something that was noticeable as soon as I put my hands in my hair. I would definitely say a little goes a long way, I didn’t use more than a tablespoon and found myself rinsing for longer than I wanted to be. With that being said it didn’t stop me from enjoying the cleansing process. Once rinsed out my hair felt fresh, smooth, healthy and soft.
Just a disclaimer the first time using the shampoo I did use a pre-wash beforehand but when I have used it without the pre-wash the results were pretty much the same.
BAOBAB OIL – CUPUAÇU BUTTER – YUCCA EXTRACT – ESSENTIAL OILS
This conditioner isn’t very thick, but it is not super thin either, almost a cream like texture. I felt like the texture of this conditioner was good for my hair as my hair is pretty fine. I left the conditioner in my hair for around 20-30 minutes under a bag and towel to create some heat. Once I rinsed it out my hair felt soft and looked really defined. It was also easy to detangle my hair with this conditioner.
BAOBAB OIL – COCONUT OIL – SHEA BUTTER – YUCCA EXTRACT – ESSENTIAL OILS
This cream is nice and lightweight, as much as I liked the fact that it was light, I think it was too light for me personally, I need a cream that is slightly heavier. However, with the gel on top, I did get a really nice light hold that kept my hair feeling moisturised.
BAOBAB OIL – COCONUT OIL – ALOE VERA LEAF GEL – ESSENTIAL OILS
Recently started to use more gels in my hair when styling, to get more hold out of my styles and it just locks everything in better, especially with a good oil on top. This gel has a slight stickiness to it, but nothing uncomfortable or unusual for a gel. Again it is lightweight and smells amazing, doesn’t flake and applied smoothly to my hair. I liked the way this felt in my hair and how it worked with the rest of the products in this line.
Overall I really enjoyed wash day with these products and out of all of them I would say the Shampoo and the Gel are my favourite products, they work really well and the scent throughout the whole range is beautiful.
