BBZ Tried and Tested: Kinky Curly Curling Custard and Come Clean Shampoo

Kinky CurlyIf you like your products with a quirky title, then Kinky-Curly is bound to have grabbed your attention. And with fun packaging with more than a subtle nod to the vintage products of yesteryear, it has shelf appeal too.

But all of this marketing work is of little use if the end product is lack luster, so does the inside live up to the pleasing hype of the outside?

Why we tried it…

It’s been flying off our shelves since the (dare I say) summer started! So, naturally we had to investigate. Our best sellers were the Curling Custard and Come Clean Shampoo.

The Curling Custard is a natural styling gel that is designed to give your curls hold without that crispy hardness associated with many other products.

Kinky-Curly Come Clean is a shampoo product that claims to rid your hair of product build up and so return it to its naturally healthy condition once more. By rinsing clean from your hair, your hair is left in a more natural and shiny state. [By the way, I love the title of this shampoo – sounds like I am about to confess all my sins! LOL]

What’s in it?

Both products contain worthy ingredients that have a high natural and organic rating so it’s a huge tick for worthy ingredients.

Kinky-Curly Curling Custard is packed full of natural ingredients such as Botanical Infusion of Water, Horsetail, Chamomile, Nettle and Marshmallow, Organic Aloe Vera Juice, Agave Nectar extract and Vitamin E.

Horsetail is a herbal extract that is thought to improve weak and brittle hair and restore its natural condition. Read more:

Chamomile corrects the balance of oil in the scalp and so counteracts greasiness and dull looking, limp hair.

Nettle and Marshmallow have healing qualities so help both the hair and the scalp stay in optimum condition.

Agave Nectar encourages moisture retention and helps with hold and shine.

How easy is it to use?

Kinky-Curly Curling Custard is designed to be used on soaking wet hair. It is also recommended that you air dry your hair in order to avoid frizz. It is not without the need for effort but then again, what product worth its styling salt is. However, it smells fantastic and a little goes a long way.

Kinky-Curly Come Clean is a sulphate free shampoo that softens hard water so that it leaves no residue behind. It can be used as a daily shampoo so is a breeze to use.

Reviews are pretty good, with the below being a quick summary of what we have to say.

Team Zara’s Final Verdict…

Kinky-Curly Curling Custard

Good condition of my hair after use, no crispiness and my curls were definitely more defined. It doesn’t dry out the hair and is not sticky. It does however, take a long time to dry and I think you have to learn how to get the best results. – Angela (Score: 4/5)

Kinky-Curly Come Clean

Left my hair soft and bouncy and with increased shine. Only needed a small amount, good lather and helped to stop my itchy scalp too! Only downside is that it can be drying. – Zara (Score: 4/5)

Final Score: 4/5 = MUST TRY

Our opinion is that the price is good for what you get and a little definitely goes a long way with both products.
