Recently Curls sent me a sample of their Curls Passion Fruit Curl Control Paste to try and give a review. If you missed my last post, Check it out here, where I tried a few of their other product and I was super excited to try something new.
Each time I try a new product I always like to do it on freshly washed hair. Some products don’t play well with other brands and I like to give them a fair chance before I dismiss them and place them in my swap pile. I think of this more as a concentrated gel, rather than as a “paste”. It’s a translucent, amber-colored jam-like substance that smells fantastic. The first time I used it was a complete mess! Lawd have mercy on my hair. Sybil was not impressed at all. I couldn’t really think of any ways to use it and attempted to just part my hair on one side and apply the product to “control” and smooth a bit. My hair gave me a big side-eye and I decided let’s try something else.
So the next time I used it was a week later right after I got my sides tapered down a bit. I used the Curling Cashmere Jelly and added cute coils to the top then on dry hair I applied the Passion Fruid Curl Control Paste on the sides. This time the results were much better and it gave a nice hold without making my hair hard as cement! It’s always nice to have a pomade around, but so many contain waxes and silicones, and they make my hair look like it’s been glued together after application. The Passion Fruit Curl Control Paste stays fresh-looking, and light.
I think that all of my curlies with longer hair would love this product. I could see great results with a high bun, up-do or hold and shine for a puff. I plan to try the product out on my daughters and see what kind of results I get as well.
