My Review

After reading several relaxed hair blogs and seeing how popular it seemed to be, I decided to take the plunge and purchase S-Curl. I haven't used this product in 15 years, which is when I began relaxing my hair and thankfully left the curly perm behind.

I bought the 710ML bottle for £7.49 in June 2012 and I am still using the same bottle. I think I have at least another 1 - 2 weeks worth and I also have a 100ml travel bottle which is half full of S-curl from when I went to Amsterdam.

S-Curl has so many uses when it comes to my hair and it is definitely an important staple in my hair regime. I use S-Curl as a leave-in conditioner, to moisturize my hair, and as a regrowth softener.

I am all about air-drying so after rinsing out my deep conditioner and t-shirt drying for 15-20 mins, I then apply S-Curl to my hair from ends to roots. I always use S-Curl along with another leave in conditioner which contains protein for extra strength for my hair.

I use S-Curl to moisturize my hair every night before sealing with avocado oil. During the colder months, I alternate between S-Curl and a thicker buttery moisturizer to ensure my hair doesn't dry out which also helps by wearing protective hairstyles 99% of the time.

Once my hair gets to between 8-9 weeks post, my regrowth can be very dry compared to the rest of my hair. I section my hair into 6 sections from the front of my head to my nape and spray the S-Curl directly onto my regrowth, before massaging it in to ensure the roots are fully moisturized before sealing with African Royale Hot 6 Oil. I do this every 2-3 days depending on how it feels.

I also use S-Curl to moisturize and seal my son's natural hair as he's currently trying to grow his hair into a high-top box.

I absolutely love this product and can't see me ever going with out it...

  1. I also love Lusters S Curl activator and have used it for years, however recently they've changed the formula to introduce a stronger perfume scent. This has really disappointed me as it smells cheap, metallic and overpowering and clashes with whatever scented body lotion/perfume I happen to be wearing that day. for me this is a deal breaker, and I wondered if you knew of any other products which are similar to this without the overpowering smell?

    1. I agree, Shay!
      I love the old formula better.
