Pros: Mostly organic, works amazing, smells outstanding

Cons: Some questionable ingredients

Coconut Sublime Moisturizing Conditioner is amazing. I LOVE it. I've been looking my whole life for curl conditioner that is organic and works - and this stuff fits the bill better than any conditioner I've ever tried.

It smells just like yummy vanilla cake batter - amazing. I loved the smell, my boyfriend flipped out over the smell (i.e. he loved it too) and while it’s a nice wake-you-up in the shower smell it didn’t stick around all day and get annoying.

The first time I used it I could tell the difference in my hair. I always condition then comb my hair in the shower or it’ll be too tangled to comb when I get out. However, even combing my curls right after I condition is always hard. Not with this conditioner. The comb ran right through my curls. It was amazing.

I usually use organic curl gel and spray after I wash my hair -  if I’m planning on going out (or I’d look crazy). After using this conditioner with the Curls Pure Curls Clarifying Shampoo 8oz and Curls Milkshake Light Curl Styling Lotion, 8-Ounce Bottle my hair looked way better than usual. Shiny, WAY less frizzy, and actually bouncy not dragged down and blah. Then I decided to do a braver test. I used the CURLS conditioner and milkshake but then DID NOT use gel or spray. My hair wasn't as put together, but even without the gel and spray my hair was non-frizzy and non-fly-away. That means I can condition and go which is awesome.

This company has many eco perks and some cons (see their wiki below) but overall this is hands down the closest I've got to a perfect product for curls, so I'd highly recommend it and the Curls Milkshake Light Curl Styling Lotion.

CURLS is the first line of hair care products created specifically for biracial/multiracial women and girls with natural curls. After the company launched CURLS founder, Mahisha Dellinger realized that many women from all ethnic walks of life have to deal with curls so now the line is designed to help everyone with curls – from Caucasian (read me), African American, Latina, Asian and more.
 

 

Dellinger’s passion for hair care began at an early age because of her own curls. She couldn’t find products that worked or that were affordable and became exhausted from her search for the “right product” for her naturally curly hair which all folks with curls will understand. Finally, Dellinger decided to create her own brand of curl care - CURLS. 


The current line of CURLS products contain an exclusive blend of natural oils and quality ingredients, such as aloe leaf juice, panthenol, mango, shea and murmur butter.
 

CURLS ECO PROS:

  • A fair amount of the CURLS line is organic and natural.
  • Packaging notes that they do not test on animals but do not carry the Leaping Bunny logo, and this is the only international symbol that represents actual tough non-animal testing standard.
  • Packaging is 100% recyclable which is always nice.
  • CURLS has a dedicated ingredients page at their website so that consumers know what they're using on their body.


CURLS ECO CONS:

  • As of today there are zero sustainability pages at their website. It's hard to locate any eco-info about the company. There's no word about if they do or do not have recycling policies in place, bottle return policy, or local buying procedures or any other sustainable practices in place.
  • The CURLS line is somewhat, but not exclusively organic. All of their baby hair care products are made organically though. 
  • CURLS are not listed or rated on Skin Deep yet. Skin Deep notes that they've recently signed the Compact for Safe Cosmetics and are working toward compliance.


ABOUT CURLS INGREDIENTS:

CURLS notes that their products are made with certified organic ingredients – but it doesn’t say what percent of the products are organic, but the ingredients are mostly natural and non-toxic. At Skin Deep you can look up their ingredients, and most score pretty well. Exceptions included PHENOXYETHANOL, CETRIMONIUM CHLORIDE, COCAMIDOPROPYL BETAINE, and LAURAMIDE DEA which all rated 3 or 4.


As noted above, products are not rated at Skin Deep yet, but after looking at all the ingredients, if one had to guess, CURLS products would earn a 2-3 at Skin Deep which means a low to moderate hazard toxicity wise. Not perfect but better than many curl care products out there. For example, Bumble & Bumble Curl Conscious Shampoo, Wild Child, Pantene Pro-V Frizz Control Treatment, Curl Reviving, and Aussie Leave-In Conditioner, Hair Insurance, (to name a few) all score a 9 or 10 which is a high toxicity hazard.


THE FINAL SAY:


CURLS could be called moderately eco-friendly and mostly non-toxic.
