Product Review: Curlly Naptress line

Hey Curlies,

I have a great friend by the name of Darice,who I help organize Indiana's Naturalistas in Nap group with, and she is head of her own natural hair care line called Curlly Naptress. She is based in Indianapolis, Indiana but she ships all over the U.S

I used her products while doing my hair for National Natural Hair Meetup Day(video here) and my hair came out great. If you watch the video it shows exactly how I used each product. Here is the review:

Whipped Shea:
Curllynaptress.com
What it claims to do:

Will your kinky, curLLy, coarse hair need detangling?  Need sheen?  Need to get it ready for your next style between washes?  Look no further than whiPPed shea!  This product is an everyday, must have.

What it contains:
Shea Butter, Safflower oil, Castor oil, and Organic raw honey

Uses:

For braid wearers, use often on your hair and scalp to help hair grow damage free.

My Review:
I loved this product. I have been looking for a butter to put either on my scalp or to twist with. A lot of the products in my hair regimen contain protein, which is okay but I also need a moisturizing product. The product has a very smooth texture that reminds me of cake icing, but it also is heavy enough to use on really thick hair. It smells like Shea and Coco butter mixed. I used it to twist with and they came out incredibly soft with no residue. Overall I give this product a 5 out of 5 and would definitely purchase this product.

Herbal Tea Hair Spray:
curllynaptress.com

What it claims to do:

An all natural herbal remedy for natural hair?  Um, yes.  We could talk all day about this herbal hair spray's benefits.  I'd start with the chamomile that prevents dandruff and soothes scalp irritation.  Then we'd mention the lavender herbs that condition hair.  Just when I brought up the aloe vera that provides softness and shine, you'd be sold.

What it contains:
Mixed with essential oils and distilled water


Uses:

The herbal hair spray can be used daily to freshen your hair styles...and your scalp.

My Review:
This product smells exactly like Lipton lemon tea, which I love. Seems like a little bit of lemon and honey. I used this product to seal in the moisture of the Whipped Shea product. It also is a great product to use when detangling. With the combination of those two products, they leave your hair very soft and shiny. Overall I give this product a 5 out of 5 because it really protected my scalp from irritation and dryness. Great for those who have dry scalp.

Pro GRO Hair Lotion
curllynaptress.com
What it claims to do:

If you're not familiar with the idea of a lotion for your hair, you will be once you try pro GRO.  This product has an amazing group of moisturizing natural oils that (1) are vitamin Rich (2) will strengthen hair and (3) prevent hair loss.

Uses:
Use the lotion daily to get rid of frizz or you can detangle those tresses prior to a shampoo treatment.  It is also valuable for protective styles like braids.

What it contains:

Castor oil, Almond oil, Coconut oil, Vitamin E and Essential oils.

My Review:
This product was a definitely a new one for me. I haven't used a hair lotion in years. The last time I used one I was relaxed. Hair lotions always seem to have other hidden ingredients that I do not feel are healthy for hair. This lotion has all of the ingredients that I trust. It has a thick texture but when applied to the hair it absorbs really well without leaving your hair coated. It has that lemon and honey smell just as the other two products. I used this product as a moisturizer especially for my ends. Overall I give this product a 5 out of 5. I haven't experienced any problems and I recommend it for medium to thick hair.

All of these products are priced at $8 and under which is a great price for the quality. If you are intrested in buying any of thes products, Darice can be contacted on Twitter @CurllyNAPtress and on her site Curllynaptress.com
