A Flora Curl x Curlee Box Review

New to the Healthy Hair Essentials Blog this week is a product review of Flora & Curls botanical hair care line. I have been using these products for a while and wanted to give you my honest opinion.

 

A while ago Flora & Curl teamed up with Curlee Box, a monthly UK based subscription service for a takeover edition. At a first glance this floral inspired collection looks good enough to eat. The ingredients are true to the brands beliefs and the package also reflects this.
INCLUDED IN THIS TAKEOVER BOX

CLEANSE ME
Citrus Bloom
Superfruit Shampoo
This botanical nutrient rich shampoo is very cleansing yet non stripping. I was able to cleanse my scalp effectively while removing any product I had but still keeping the softness of my transitioning curls. For a no sulphate shampoo it lathers really well and left my hair feeling squeaky clean. It is very soothing and has a mild citrus smell. The consistency almost reminds me of jelly.
HYDRATE ME
Rose & Honey Milk
Leave – In Detangler
One of my new staples!!! I have never had a leave – in conditioner that has made detangling my transitioning hair a breeze! I've definitely noticed less breakage and a lot of softness while detangling. Infused with ingredients such as Organic Rose Water, Coconut and Sweet Honey, it has a creamy light weight consistency and leaves my hair smelling of honey. Sunflower, Oat, Marigold, and Vitamin B also help smooth the cuticles, adds shine and gives definition. I have recently been mixing a little bit of the leave - in detangler with rose water to use as a mid week refresher to moisturise my hair. 
HYDRATE ME
Jasmine Oasis
Floral Hydration
Hair Mist
Other that washing my hair with water, I have never really been into moisturising and sealing my hair with water as the liquid. This is when I came across the Floral Hydration Hair Mist. I have been using this for a few months now and was so happy to see it in this Curlee Box as I had just ran out. This hydrating mist is infused with Rose, Aloe, Honey and Jasmine, and is perfect at moisturising and softening my dry hair. I like to use this mist as part of the LCO method and before I pre poo my hair, leaving my strands smelling like a botanical rose garden. I also like to use this as a refresher, especially when protective styling.
PROTECT ME
African Citrus Bloom
Superfruit
Hair Oil
The Superfruit Hair Oil is another staple of mine and has made it to my top 5 oils list. It is velvety smooth and glides onto my strands making my hair shiny and super moisturised for days. Filled with 12 potent plant oils such as Grape Seed, Castor Seed and Avocado oil to name a few will help nourish split ends, tames frizziness, provides heat protection and helps repair damaged hair. It is great for deep conditioning, as a hot oil treatment or sealing in moisture. All I can say is you have to try this oil for yourself. This oil is definitely a WOW! You won’t be disappointed.
NOURISH ME
Flower Garden
Styling Butter Cream
Not included in the Curlee box, I wanted to complete my Flora & Curl wash days by also using the Butter Cream to seal in all the moisture. This velvety texture instantly melted into my hair. Infused with Shea Butter along with several stimulating floral and herbal extracts, this butter is instantly nourishing, gives great shine, it helps relieve dry itchy scalp, and is highly moisturising. The smell almost reminds me of Turkish delight and has my hair smelling of sweet floraly goodness for days!
Let your hair blossom with pure plant powered hair food for all hair textures and curl types. Definitely an amazing natural brand worth spending your coins on. I hope you all love these products like I do.
Naturally yours,
Kaisha
