Moisture Curl Kit

Greetings Naturalistas!

I've finally found time to review the April 2013 Curl Kit!  This Curl Kit was ALL about MOISTURE!  Oils, Shea Butter, moisturizing leave-ins is on the menu of this box!  I must admit that most of these products were not familiar to me and the fact that they were all natural was a plus!

I have a rather large supply of oils in my cabinets and more than likely will be giving this bottle away but I did like the fact that it was a FULL-size product!

Smelled fresh and inviting.  Not into spritzers but am looking forward to giving this product a try as a style refresher.  I do like the smell of mint and the sample bottle is easy to carry in my pocketbook to refresh my tresses during the day!

2 ounce Sample Size for $4.50/8 ounces for $12.00
Personally, I'm not a regular gel person.  I do like Eco's Olive Oil Gel but I prefer a natural gel or use my flaxseed gel.  Since these are in packets, I'll be taking them to work and leaving in my desk drawer for those bad hair days emergencies at work!  LOL!

It has been reported by blogger Kimberly Foss of My Natural Hair Journey that "due to so many complaints, Curlkit shut down people writing on their Facebook page."   I know that Curl Kit is experiencing some growing pains but I've yet to have a "major" issue with receiving my Curl Kit Box.

I must say that I look forward to receiving mines each month.  Use the referral code at the top of the page to receive a discount on your first order!
