I’ve used two products from the Beautiful Textures line so far, and I can’t wait to try the rest. Their Tangle Taming Leave In Conditioner makes detangling a breeze and the Moisture Butter Whipped Curl Creme provides an intense dose of the moisture that textured hair needs, especially during the Winter months. The entire line is full of products that allow you to moisturize, hold styles, elongate curl, add shine, and more!

One of the stand out things about Beautiful Textures is their acknowledgment that everyone’s hair needs are different. That’s why they encourage users to mix and match their products to achieve the best results. They even give helpful mix suggestions for a variety of hair care needs. Another is the awesome price. Each product in the line is under $7.00, so you don’t have to go broke maintaining your look.

Beautiful Curls Shea Butter Hair Products

Here’s the latest from Grambling University English Major, Sharlene Cassius on her usage of Beautiful Curls Shea Butter Hair Products:

In my constant quest to find great products for my naturally curly hair, I often find myself stopping complete strangers with healthy looking hair, to find out the secret to their beautiful curly hair. “What products do you use?” I ask. What do they all tell me? They use shea butter. It seems that this magic ingredient is the key to maintaining soft, moisturized and healthy curls, so one can just imagine my excitement when I discovered three products from Beautiful Curls®: Shea Butter Curl Nurturing Shampoo for Babies and Up, Shea Butter Curl Nurturing Leave-In/Detangler for Babies and Up and Shea Butter Sculpting Wax.

All three of these products contain (you guessed it) the all powerful shea butter, which assists in not only sealing in moisture, but also acts as a sun screening agent, among other benefits. After I tried out Beautiful Curls® Sculpting Wax and the no mess Shea Butter Curl Nurturing Leave-in/Detangler, I was unsurprised by how manageable and soft my hair became. However, I was especially impressed by sulphate-free Beautiful Curls® Shea Butter Nurturing Shampoo. What a product! As I applied this amazing product into my hair and rinsed the suds from my crowning glory I couldn’t restrain myself. “Ooo!” I cooed, satisfied by the amazing result. Is this just a shampoo? It definitely felt more like a two in one, because my hair felt incredibly soft, as if it was not only cleansed, but conditioned!

Of course I had to find out more about what else Beautiful Curls had to offer. I discovered a wide variety of other products, designed for various curly hair types, and realized that the brand was also committed to a number of humanitarian causes. Beautiful Curls® was created by Alaffia, an organization which empowers communities in West Africa, by encouraging fair trade of shea butter. This fair trade not only provides valuable income for Alaffia Corporative artisans in rural West African communities, but proceeds from the sale of Alaffia’s products help fund important programs such as Maternal Health & Equality and Bicicles for Education, which helps numerous students in Togo to stay in school to break the cycle of poverty in their communities. Commendable, right? They not only take care of my hair, but they stand for an honorable cause. Bravo!

Got Curly Hair? Get Frizz Free Curls with CURLS Haircare

During the summer, I’ve been taking a college student, an English major to be exact, to a few events as part of Real World Experience experiment which will hopefully help craft her future endeavors. As stated, she is an English major, so naturally her experience involves covering an event or two and product reviews. So with no further delay, here is the first from Sharlene Cassius, Sophomore at Grambling university.

This is my hair, untamed and uncombed.

It’s not exactly Shirly Temple curly. It’s not even as curly as actress Rachel Tru’s tresses. However, it’s a little wavy and very frizzy, but there is definitely some curl potential for my crowning glory. That’s why I decided to put the Curls for Women five hair care products to the test.

They are – Curlicious Curls Cleansing Cream, Coconut Sublime Conditioner, Quenched Curls Moisturizer, Curls Milkshake (light curl lotion), and the new Cashmere Curls. These fabulous finds are from Curls’ product line designed especially for multi-ethnic women of all hair types. Overall, I would say I am satisfied with these goodies. If you are one those girls who has to deal with your naturally kinky or curly, frizzy, tangle-prone, moisture-craving hair, you’re appreciate how much these products can leave your hair feeling so much more manageable, silky, bouncy and moisturized.

My favorite, out of the five products is Cashmere Curls (shown above), because it caters especially to kinkier hair textures like mine. I can apply it to my twists, undo them, and voila, I have an excellent, nicely moisturized twist out.

Apart from these amazing benefits (especially how the products made my hair less frizzy), I loved the wonderful scent of coconut that stayed with me after using these products. Yes, scent matters to me. One of the first things I do when I’m shopping for hair products is inhale their fragrance and these products made me want to take a second, and a third whiff. And off course, price is extremely important to me. Curls’ products for women (which include a number of products I haven’t had the opportunity to try out) range from a retail price of about $12-$25. I would say that that’s reasonable considering the great results. So, if you want the Curls experience, find these products and Curls’ two other products lines for kids and babies (Curly Qs and It’s A Curl) from top retailers across the US and international countries; better yet, order them online at .

And, if you believe in giving back, I’m sure you’ll be happy to know that Curls’ Founder, Mahisha Dellinger, works with adoption agencies across the US donating Curls products and teaching multi-ethnic hair care to parents who adopt across racial lines. You go girl!
